    Kick up the dust.

    If tough trails and steep switchbacks are your cup of tea, then look no further than the Nike Men's Air Zoom Wildhorse 4 Trail Running Shoe to ensure support, traction, and adaptive comfort as you hoof it over relentless terrain. The Wildhorse features a revamped look, but its core construction remains the same. The lightweight mesh upper maintains structural support and won't obstruct the innate breathability that the structure mesh is known for.

    And since a trail running shoe is rendered sort of obsolete without a rock plate, Nike equipped the Wildhorse 4 with a rock plate for protection against jagged rocks and stray roots that might be dead set on taking you down. Additionally, the Phylon midsole attenuates shock for a cushioned, comfy feel, while the Zoom Air Unit in the heel further absorbs impact and provides great response for a comfortable and smooth stride. And last but not least, the sticky rubber outsole is enforced with over-sized lugs for aggressive traction and exceptional grip to chew up any trail you set out on.

    • Make trails grovel with this ruthless running shoe
    • Breathable mesh upper maintains structural support
    • Flywire cables offer a personalized, pressure-free fit
    • Midsole attenuates shock and enhances energy return
    • Rubber outsole with rugged lugs for traction
    • Item #NKE015Z

    Great hiking shoe.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11.5.
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 207lbs

    I recent did about 50 miles of trail hiking in the 4s, and have used the 3s a lot in the past. At first I was nervous about the 4s, but I think they did improve them and somehow removed or shifted some rough areas that occasionally bothered me. I usually wear a casual 11+ and hike in 11.5, but after the 50 miles, these did get a little tight, so I'm going up to 12s next time. The toe box is roomy and wide, the cushion is good, and they dry out reasonably well. The sole is a good balance between stiff and flexible, and the sole is a bit gummy with good traction on the rocks. The trade off in the sole rubber is that they get a beating from sharp rocks, and you trade feel and traction, for durability. So far I grab these the most for hiking, over and over for a couple years now. The update to the 4s turned out to be an improvement for me. Size up half to full size depending on how much you swell and the distances you do. These are worth a try.

    Great hiking shoe.

    Great Ultrarunning Trail Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 13
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I really like this shoe! When it comes to trail running shoes, I tend to try lots of brands and models. I've used Salomon Sense Ride and S-Lab Ultra, LaSportiva Raptor, Mutant, Akasha, Pearl Izumi N1 (great fitting but no longer making), Montrail Caldorado, Altra Lone Peak 1.5-2.0 were the best versions IMO and Hoka Mafate (didnt like them on the rugged stuff, best for smoother). All of them have their merits and are valuable in certain situations. The Wildhorse seems to work for me in most all situations.
    I live on the East Coast and my trails are typical for this region: very rocky and rooty. The Wildhorse provides good protection to the bottoms of my feet and the upper is surprisingly wider than most every other Nike I have ever tried.
    I think the sole works, though definitely not as sticky as LaSportiva or Salomon, but they also costs a lot less and compete very solidly with shoes from these others.
    Finally, they last! In the same shoe, I have run three hundred milers plus training miles too, and they still have absorption in the midsole and lugs on the outsole.
    They come in a variety of colors too, which is fashionably cool

      Husband loves these. He's not a marathoner or anything, more of a run-when-a-bike-is-not-an-option kind of guy, but he really likes these shoes when that's the case. And they look good. Agree with other review that says they fit wide feet well.

      Amazing shoe...Nike, and yet...wide!

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

      I've done a ton of trail running in Salomon, Altra, La Sportiva, and Hoka.

      I have wide/high volume feet, especially up front. I was super skeptical Nike would make a trail shoe that fit me, let alone such a good one.



      But sure enough, the Wildhorse 4 is a bad-ass trail shoe. It's rugged, fits like a glove, and has great traction. Ultimately, I think that running shoes come down to you trying them on, and knowing what works for your foot, so I'm not going to write an 8 paragraph technical break down that I'm unqualified to write. However, I CAN say that if you fit them, and you're looking for something that works for everything other than super gnarly scree fields and highly "technical" terrain, this is a great shoe to try.



      I say the last bit, because, unlike some other shoes geared more for straight up "mountain running", they just aren't as stiff, especially in the soles. However, I think that even in the Wasatch, the majority of trails people spend time on just don't require something as rugged as a Sportiva Mutant, and so shying away from a shoe like this would be a mistake.



      Picture was taken in the Southern French Alps.

      Amazing shoe...Nike, and yet...wide!

      Great Grip and Comfy

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 12
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      Shoes are comfortable and have great grip up and down trails in wet or dry conditons

      Great shoe

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      These shoes are awesome, and the stretch is great! They definitely have a good feel, almost as if they give you momentum, exactly as a running shoe should!

      Your New Go-To Trail Shoe

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 8
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      Before purchasing these, I had been used to hiking in either big clunky boots or simple tennis shoes.. so when I purchased these, I was quite eager to test them out. What was taking me so long? These are the perfect shoes to take hiking down in Moab or up in the Park City mountains. The aggressive tread on the bottom allows for ample grip and stability when scrambling through the forest or desert. The midsole actually provides enough cushioning if you're the kind of person that wants or needs a maximal shoe. Fits true to size. I normally wear a women's size 9.5 and the 8 was spot on.

      Your New Go-To Trail Shoe

      Great Trail Shoe

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 11.5
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      I currently have approx. 100 miles on these shoes. No rips or tears in the upper and other than some mud they look like new. I run on the Appalachian Trail in Pa and these shoes handle the rocky terrain nicely. The first trail run was 16 miles and had absolutely no hotspots. The toe box is very roomy. Its not a cushy shoe like the Brooks Caldera but it provides nice stability that I feel the Caldera lacks. My one and only complaint is the lack of grip on wet rocks.

      Ain't nature neat!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      You can tell that these are good trail running shoe because of the way they are. Ain't that neat. Sometimes I like to wear them just in case I run into a mountain beast and need to get away quickly . I don't want to compromise traction and quality so I went with the Nike Air Zoom Wildhorse 4 Trail Running Shoe for all my trail running needs.

      Great Trail Shoe

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 7.0
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 140lbs

      Great shoes, Great fit, I wear these everyday at work and liked them so well I bought a second pair in another color. Would definitely purchase again!

      I'm a fan

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 181lbs

      I have had many iterations of this shoe, and this has been the best in my opinion. I like the new look and it performs just as good or better than the last version.

      GREAT trail shoes

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 7.0
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 140lbs

      Incredible fit and level of comfort. Great for trails and just cruising around. Would definitely recommend!

      Great for a Wide foot

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 11.5
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 167lbs

      I run trails not super regularly but enough to know that these shoes are a great fit for me. I have a wide foot and the toe box allows my foot to spread out. These shoes are incredibly comfortable, have great grip, and amazing support.

      Great grip, weird fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 9.5
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 178lbs

      PROS:
      Great grip, breathable,

      CONS:
      fits a touch larger that typical Nike shoes (however not enough to size down), too much room in the toe box (some people may like that), awkward fit with the offset lacing system (it did not secure my foot and left too much room in the toe box), durability (the inner liner began to tear after three uses).

      I ended up returning the shoe. Most people criticize Nike for having a narrow fit; I feel as though this model was intended to answer that concern. I had the previous model shoe which i preferred much more.

      Great Trail Running/Hiking Shoe

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 225lbs

      I'm not an avid runner myself, although I've been known to hit the pavement for a couple of miles at a time, but I really enjoy having these Wildhorses for easier hikes/trail walks with my dog when I want to put in more than a few miles. If I know the terrain we're going to hike or walk through is slick but not necessarily rocky or inconsistent, these are the perfect shoe. We have many trails in the PNW that fit this bill, and the Wildhorse gives you the comfort of something like a Pegasus or LunarEpic but with the traction of a trail shoe.

      They run true-to-size for any comparable Nike training or running shoe. Maybe size up a half size if you plan on wearing in the winter/colder periods so you can pair with a thicker sock.

      Nike did a great job of updating a classic Pegasus running shoe for optimized use on varied terrain. The tread doesn’t fail up or downhill and these fit true to size. Wide selection of colorways and a asymmetrical pacing system that really does a great job securing your foot for no blisters. I recommend these shoes for anyone running or hiking in mostly dry conditions.
