For fans of the Saucony Kinvara Trail, Brooks PureGrit, Saucony Peregrine, and the New Balance MT110, the Nike Terra Kiger trail shoe just hit our shelves and is sure to be an instant hit.
This low-profile shoe that’s built on the same last as the Nike Free 5.0 has a minimal feel and an especially aggressive tread, but offers just enough cushion and protection for those longer miles. It weighs in at just over 7 ounces (men’s size 9), has an upper that is devoid of seams and overlays, and is the perfect balance for those looking for a more minimal trail shoe without sacrificing needed protection.
