Nike Zoom Wildhorse Men's Running Shoes
The Nike Zoom Wildhorse really stands apart from its competitors by achieving the perfect balance of cushioning, trail responsiveness, and off-road protection making for a fleet, confident trail partner. At an impressive 9.6 ounces (men's size 10), this shoe is light enough for trail racing while keeping the stability and durability needed for daily ultra-terra running.
Numerous tech-savvy innovations throughout the shoe include a new durable rubber waffle outsole offering the best traction on the market for technical terrains. The engineers have added reverse-facing rubber lugs to the center of the shoes heel which provide exceptional traction for downhill mountain running. At the same time, the shoe is not overly-equipped with lugging; beneficial when terrain turns smoother and less soft.
By utilizing its compression-molded Phylon/Cushlon midsole, adding a Nike Zoom unit under the forefoot, and allowing for four-millimeters of drop from heel-to-toe, the Zoom Wildhorse offers cloud-like cushioning without losing responsiveness and control. The breathable, single-layer ripstop upper has Nike's adaptive Dynamic Fit technology and a pleated tongue, which guards from debris working its way into the shoe; a feature highly appreciated by those of us traversing tough terrain.
The Wildhorse is the perfect choice for anyone looking to run on the most technical of mountain terrain. It is great for nearly everything, but less suitable for crossing rivers and does not get rid of mud as efficiently as its sister, the Nike Zoom Terra Kiger.
