Another great looking trail running shoe! Nike usually don't disappoint in designing great looking footwear and the Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 5 is no exception!

We were pretty excited about getting our hands on these and we weren't let down by the look and feel of these the moment we saw them in the flesh, very lightweight and a great looking trail running shoe.

With a nice level of sole "stack" we found this shoe to be very responsive with good feel, giving confidence under foot. Perforated mesh in the upper provided good breathability and allowed any water to easily escape when we tackled stream crossings, always a great feature for the more adventurous trail runners who like to get a bit more off the beaten track. However, this unfortunately highlighted one of the weaker qualities of this shoe - traction in wet conditions. We took these out on a nice warm, dry day and found they performed well, but once we got to some wet areas we quickly found these shoes to be very unforgiving. Running over wet and slippery areas is a challenging prospect at the best of times, but we found in this case it was almost impossible to gain any traction and navigate safely in wet conditions.

If you are looking for a great looking, lightweight trail running shoe in dry conditions then this is a great option, but we'd recommend others if you plan on heading out in wet conditions or will be encountering a lot of wet/slippery areas - which for us is one of the best parts of trail running! These certainly have their place, just not a standout performer in the wet.
