The Kapilani begins with the same midsole unit as the Ultra Tempo+ with its responsive dual density setup, then makes changes above and below. The upper is a fully lined airmesh, the stretchy lining adding comfort without affecting breathability. The fit is aimed to higher-arched feet with a neoprene insert snugging the upper to wrap over the instep. Inside, the cushioning has been augmented with a plush PU innersole and EVA Strobel board, which add a noticeable cushiness to the ride. The outersole here is a tough carbon rubber which is largely responsible for the added weight, but is durable, tough, and effective—so we think it’s worth its weight. The carbon shank, a Zoot hallmark, is the same as the one in their triathlon models, so expect the same performance feel.
