I’m at all times a little bit nervous with a brand new mannequin as a result of what in the event that they modified the texture from the earlier model and immediately you don’t like it any extra?
I’m not going to deceive you. In relation to footwear, I AM PICKY. I try to dislike loads of them, so anytime one thing comes alongside that I instantly select to run in a number of occasions over my different go to footwear, it’s one thing that must be shared!
However, I additionally spend loads of time on the lookout for different individuals who have worn the shoe to inform me how it FELT! Was it laborious or gentle? Did they solely prefer it for brief runs? How did it evaluate to different footwear?
Hopefully, that’s precisely what I can present you at present for the Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 8 launched only in the near past.
Excellent news for anybody who liked the Kiger 7, the 8 has only some adjustments and so they’re nothing that can massively change the way in which you are feeling working within the shoe. However they may make the shoe extra breathable for these scorching summer season runs!
Whereas this shoe has a rockplate, I’d nonetheless relegate it to my mid-distance or sooner path type working, not my tremendous large rock form of days. I’m an enormous fan of the decrease profile and the Epic react cushioning (see . under).
Some famous that they didn’t like the texture of the shoe on laborious packed trails, however I can’t say I minded. Once more merely understanding upfront that that is path working shoe that’s going to be reasonably cushioned and responsive.
That being mentioned a lot of you’ll respect them for any distance. I additionally favored the toe bumper, which is simply that further safety from rocks with out making the shoe stiff.
The grip felt good in most locations, although the lugs should not enormous or diversified on the forefoot, so for extra technical terrain you may select another choice. I’ve heard it doesn’t grip properly when moist, however I wasn’t on something slick sufficient to search out that as a problem.
I do like a little bit extra underfoot for a few of the longer path days just because my ft get drained! So no shock that I’m additionally a fan of the Nike Wildhorse.
Discover it . on Nike.com for $140, so you may get pleasure from their 30 day trial coverage!
Let’s dive in with a few of the prime line . that all of us must learn about a shoe!
- Weight: 10.5 oz males’s, 8.8 oz girls’s
- Heel drop: 4mm

Key options of this path shoe that set it aside:
- Connected tongue is gentle and breathable. Love that it means it gained’t be sliding round on my foot.
- Toe bumpers and rock plate
- Improved heel locking match within the Kiger 8
Nike React Foam
One of many causes I liked this shoe was it hit that center floor of feeling gentle when touchdown, whereas nonetheless having construction to assist the foot. Seems that is due particularly to their React Foam.
- 13% extra vitality return with each foot fall than the Nike Lunarlon foam
- 11% softer than the Nike LunarEpic
- 5% lighter than the Nike LunarEpic
Loopy quantities of math and engineering went in to creating this shoe. And whereas I respect all of that, what I principally respect is a shoe that I slip on and say “ahh”. It simply feels good whether or not I’m on mile 1 or 8. And as I hold rebuilding put up knee surgical procedure, I’m fairly assured it’s going to really feel gentle and cozy at mile 17, too.
Cons of the Terra Kiger
Actually the greatest downside that I’ve heard others deliver up is the burden. Personally, I can’t say this shoe appears heavier than lots of the path trainers I’ve examined. The grievance appears to stem from earlier variations being lighter.
You aren’t going to place it on and assume my goodness that is heavy! However everyone knows that because the miles progress, these issues add up.
So hold it for the shorter days and luxuriate in!!
Moreover, all Nike footwear run extra slender. Once more this isn’t a problem for me, however I’ve numerous working pals who must look particularly for large footwear in something Nike to get a extra comfy match.
