INTRODUCTION

The Zoom Terra Kiger is a moderate feature, moderate neutral trail shoe designed for racing and daily training.

CUSHIONING

  • Zoom Air located in the heel and forefoot consists of low-profile pressurized air pockets that flex on contact for responsive cushioning.

MIDSOLE

  • Phylon is a full-length midsole foam that delivers lightweight, resilient cushioning.
  • Crash pad at the bottom of the heel is a decoupled, gender-specific unit that reduces impact shock and corrects over pronation.

UPPER

  • Engineered mesh comprises the upper, providing lightweight breathability.
  • Seamless Upper provides a smooth, irritation free environment.
  • Dynamic Flywire provides necessary support and unmatched fit while reducing the shoes overall weight.
  • EVA sockliner mimics the curvature of the heel and arch for increased comfort and support.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full-length fabric for a comfortable underfoot feel.

OUTSOLE

  • Multi-Directional Lugs provide increased traction on trails.
  • Environmentally Preferred Rubber located in the forefoot provides multi-surface traction.
  • Dual Density Outsole provides optimal traction in both wet and dry conditions.

Comments: Nike finally comes up with a legit trail running shoe and a lower drop shoe and it is in the same great package. The light weight combined with a lower drop yet enough cushion make this shoe a good choice for many distances from short, fast trail races to longer ultras. The traction is good enough for most trails, but I wouldn't use it in wet, muddy conditions. The one thing I was nervous about was the soft heel counter. Very similar to that on the Free. I thought my heel would slip, or that I would have to lace them very tight. However, the heel actually fits very nice without having adjust the lacing. I just bought my second pair of these and will be logging many miles in this shoe in the months to come.

Comments: Wow, amazing shoe! I've always struggled to find a trail shoe that felt light, fast, and responsive while still maintaining enough protection, traction, and cushion for the trails. I've gone through all the race ready trail shoes from NB, Inov8, Brooks, Asics, Montrail, Hoka, Salomon, and Saucony, and Nike has really hit it out of the park with this one. The 4mm drop, extremly comfortable and airy upper, light weight, and responsive cushioning fit and feel similar to a road flat. The zoom cushioning in both front and rear of the shoe offer plenty of rock protection and a springy ride. The outsole offered great traction on technical trails and even felt good for stretches of pavement. The Salomon S-Lab Sense is close to a perfect shoe, but I feel a little too firm in the forefoot. This shoe picks up right where Salomon left off. I'd train and race in them for anything from 1 to 100 miles.

Comments: With so many great trail shoe options out there meeting the requirements of all running types, Nike was just lagging behind. Personally, I like around a 4mm drop and enough cushioning for long distances, but somewhat minimal as well. The old Brookes Puregrits were perfect for me. However, I was not a fan of the bottom on the new Puregrits. I have ran 2 training runs in the Terra Kinger's (10 miles and 15 miles) and did a 13.2M race in them. The verdict, I love them! Still need to be tested on longer runs with more technical trails, but I am not too concerned with their ability to hold up. If all goes well tomorrow on my 25 mile technical run, they will be coming along up to Waldo 100K. Nice job Nike!
