Head for the hills in the new men's Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 5.

Nike overhauled the Terra Kiger this year to make it even better on dirt: The fifth edition of the Nike trail running shoe uses a segmented rock plate in the forefoot to shield your foot from rocks and roots without compromising flexibility while multidirectional outsole lugs give you sure-footed traction no matter how your foot lands.

In the Nike Terra Kiger 4, designers used a Zoom Air bag in the heel and the forefoot. This year’s model only has a unit in the heel, but Zoom Air paired with cushy React foam make the Terra Kiger 5 ride smooth and feel bouncy.

Nike swaddled the Terra Kiger 5 in a Flymesh upper that’s lightweight and soft. The perforated mesh breathes easily on hot days, and it drains water quickly after you splash through a stream.

In our review of the Nike Terra Kiger 5, Fleet Feet testers praised the spacious toe box that made running comfortable, and they loved the thoughtful details that made the shoe feel high-quality.

The refreshed Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 5 is ready for anything.

Nike Terra Kiger

Not only is the shoe perfect, but the service was even better. I was notified that my shoes were on their way the next morning.

Great service in store and online

I stopped in at our local Fleet Feet and had a wonderful experience with the staff there. I tried on several pairs of Nikes. Ultimately the pair I wanted wasn’t in stock at the store, so I decided to purchase from the website. That was quick and easy. The shoes are perfect.

Awesome shoes and awesome service

This is my second pair of Nike Kigers, Fleet Feet are the first ones that had the color way I’d been looking for IN STOCK, when I ordered them I was hoping they’d be here before my family and I left for vacation and thanks to dwelt feet they did. The Kigers are awesome trail shoes and also an awesome everyday shoe, great comfort, fit, finish and look.

Awesome customer service

Love the shoes, but more importantly, the first pair I bought didn’t fit quite right and they let me exchange for ones that did. Even after I took them on a hike in Yosemite! Thanks guys!

Good Purchase

I really enjoyed my new Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 5. They felt good on my first hike and hope to continue to break them in on future hikes.
