Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 5
Trail runners can always rely on Nike to give them a different kind of running shoes that’s perfect for the rugged terrain. Nike’s Air Zoom Terra Kiger 5 is back. And this time, it’s bolder and more robust than ever. It boasts of a better fit and improved performance on the trail.
The Kiger 5 features a toe box that is wider than its predecessor, the Kiger 4. This provides for more room for the splaying of the foot as it strikes the ground. The toe box isn’t the only segment on the Terra that’s made wider. Nike also engineered the midfoot section to have more space. The improvement in the design of the Kiger 5 guarantees better comfort for the feet. Nike’s lacing system works well with the roomy midfoot and toe box. It isn’t that complicated, either. The lacing system comes with a simple overlay that provides the anchor for the laces.
The mesh upper of the Kiger 5 is a compromise between protection and comfort. Nike engineers made sure that the foot will feel comfortable every time it gets in the Kiger 5. The upper is breathable and soft for the ultimate in foot comfort. However, the weave in the fabric material is tight enough to keep particles from ever getting inside the shoe.
Nike also integrated the React foam which the brand uses in the Epic React Flyknit 2. It gives runners a bouncy yet soft ride as they blaze the trails. The rubber outsole comes with multidirectional lugs for improved traction. At the forefoot section is a segmented rock plate which improves safety against sharp rocks on the bumpy trail.
The Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 5 is a nimble and lightweight running shoe built for the rugged trails. It ensures a more comfortable and more confident run.
