    No trail too tough.

    Compacted dirt, dust, rocks, and roots can leave your feet feeling pretty beat after a long trail run, which is why you rely on your trail running shoes to help get you through those grueling training days and trying races. Featuring Nike's Zoom Air technology, the Terra Kiger 3 Men's Trail Running Shoes deliver the responsive feel you need to adapt to ever-changing trail surfaces, while providing the plush cushioning you want when covering long distances.

    Located in the midsole, Zoom Air technology uses both pressurized air and responsive fibers to spring back after every step, while rapidly dispersing pressure on impact. Their lightweight Flymesh uppers offer a lightweight feel, and the Dynamic fit system utilizes tenuous strands of fiber to offer foot-hugging support. The sticky rubber soles with oversized lugs bite on everything from loose rock and dirt to compacted trails, giving you the traction you need to run with confidence in demanding and technical terrain.

    No regret with this purchase

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11

    I always spend ages researching different purchases and finally pulled the trigger on this one and I have utterly zero buyer's remorse nor have I looked at other options after my purchase which is rare. The fit and comfort are great, the laces stay tied, colors are cool, everything is wonderful thus far about these shoes.
    The one thing I'd say is if you're planning to run through lots of mud, these shoes probably aren't for you. They don't shed mud well and you lose traction pretty quickly in that case.

    Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 3

    • Fit: True to size

    I got Terra Kiger 2 as well and I like it. I like Terra Kiger 3 better. I like the improvements made in terms of the hidden flexible rock plate and overall design and colours.

    Always light weight, wide toe splay, good traction, refined lacing. Just hope it'll be durable too.

    Poor Durability

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 10

    The outsole on the left pulled away from the bottom in light mud after less than 100 miles in these (~20 runs). Poor durability in the sole and the forefoot is a little wide if you have narrow feet. I did like the venting and looks.



    Update: super glued the left and now the bottom of the right came apart in two places after another 18 miles which landed them in the garbage can (~120 miles or 22 runs). Hard to trust Nike with trail runners again after these.

    Poor Durability

    Love them!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I bought these for my brother, and he swears by Nike Air's, he has had a pair before but have worn them out completely and needed a new pair. He says they fit great and are super comfortable.

    feels so good

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11

    I wear 10.5 Wide, ordered 11 M and fit perfect with a boat load of toe room for wide feet like mine. Nice feel to feet and stable too. Super light like slippers almost. The price was the lowest found and a very super deal from Backcountry.com I been buying Nike Air Structure in the past years and this is now the one I will buy for trails in the woods.

    Runs Small IMO

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 12.5

    Just got these shoes and sent them back for a bigger pair. I'll update this review later, but FYI, I usually run in Altra brand shoes. The 12.5 fits me with the > thumbnail to spare, but not in these Nike Kiger 3. They are a half size smaller than the Altra Lone Peak 3 (which are smaller than the 2.5's if you are wondering) and probably a full size smaller than the Superior 2.0... Great looking shoe... we'll see how they work out on the trails.

    Good Shoes

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11.5

    I've had these shoes for a few weeks now and have worn them at the gym several times. Once on, these shoes fit great and have served me well, providing a snug fit and good support through fairly rigorous circuit training workouts. Only thing I don't like, which sounds silly as it rolls around in my head, is putting on these shoes. The heels are really soft and tend to cave in when you're putting them on. I'm also not a big fan of the tongue, which is attached on the inside portion and detached on the outside portion. In the grand scheme of things, I'll take these complaints over having issues with the fit, support, styling and durability of a shoe.

    Looks

    Areas in which Nike did not so great:
    Functionality

    I've had my Kiger 3's for about 3 days. I bought them right before a trip to Oregon where I would be doing a lot of trail running in them. The looks are great, but I still haven't determined exactly what trails, these shoes were designed for. There is stitching along the inner sidewall that is very uncomfortable against the inside of my foot, making them almost unbearable to wear tight (How a trail shoe was designed to be worn). The stitching forms a hard crease at the top that presses against your ankle. The heal of the shoe wraps around, a great design for running down muddy/wet downhill stretches, allowing more traction than a conventional running shoe, however, they aren't the only ones to use this concept in their construction. The waterproofing is T.E.R.R.I.B.L.E. If a wet leaf falls on top of your shoe, you're like to have a wet sock just from that. The toebox has plenty of room, which I like but look kinda funky if you have thinner calves. I think I would be pretty happy with them if it weren't for the painful stitching on the sidewall.

    Great trail shoe

    • Size Bought: 11

    I recently came back to Nike after over 15 years away from the brand. These shoes are great so far - comfortable/great fit, cushioned, great grip, appropriate length laces that stay tied (not super long like a lot of shoes). I almost forget I have them on when running - dirt, gravel, rocks, roots. Just be careful of the Total Crimson red - it's more like a salmon pink. Definitely not a red.

    Awesome Shoes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10

    I had the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32 before these. They were my favorite shoes until I got these. In addition to the high comfort and durability of the Pegasus, the Terra Kigers are significantly lighter and have better traction.

    My New Fav Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    The image we have on these shoes doesn't do its justice. They're extremely bright and that is what I was looking for. Awesome fashion statement and goes with all my Hokie gear! Not to mention super comfortable, breathable running shoes as well!

    Nice Shoes

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Nice shoes so far. The shoes are comfortable and fit well. I actually like these more than my previous Nike's. Haven't worn them a whole lot so far, but they seem pretty durable. They aren't too soft or have too much cushion like some others that I have had. I am very satisfied so far, we'll see how they hold up.

    OK, I'll give them 5 stars

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I like a more minimal shoe but having signed up for some longer races I thought that I'd try these out. The fit is good - locked down heel with a wide toe box. The tongue is attached on the inside of the foot which stops it falling to one side, there is enough protection from rocks to do 50km without flinching, and the sole gives me just enough grip (could be a touch better when it gets muddy). I've put 300 miles on mine and they still look like new which is very rare for me. There is a good amount of squidge but not so much that you lose any feeling of what is under you. I'd say that these are a great alternative to the PI N1 which I loved, but which had very poor grip in the wet.

    Great Breathable Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    This shoe is so light, breathable, and comfortable, you might forget you're wearing it if it weren't for the amazing grip you can feel with each step! Like everyone else has mentioned, the tread on these is fantastic. These shoes make me feel so surefooted while jogging along most any type of terrain. Loose rocks, sand, pine needles, nothing has given me trouble while my Terra Kigers have been on. I typically wear a 10, but I fit in a 9.5 in these. Part of this I think is caused by, my favorite feature, the wide toe box. So much room for the little piggies!!

    How are these for mud? Will water drain through these shoes easily?

    OK, so I live in Bellingham WA and it has rained here some days a lot this month almost record rainfall totals. I ran wet in the shoe a lot and it drains well enough. I have had shoes that drained better but honestly not many (had a pair of inov8s that drained better). This shoe is good though with traction, nice balance of support and padding and nice lugs so handles well in the wet and mud, the drainage is not a problem really.
