Nike’s update of the ever-popular Terra Kiger trail shoe uses soft and responsive React foam in the midsole for the first time for a smooth ride on the most technical of trails. A new segmented rock plate in the forefoot provides protection as does a holdover zoom air unit in the heel. A new woven heel counter further reduces the weight of the new Terra Kiger while providing security and control. The update receives more aggressive lugs on the outsole for high abrasion areas, while the midfoot has sticky rubber for great traction over slick rocks and roots. The new Terra Kiger looks great, fits great, and performs great. Come in and try one for all of your trail running needs.
The Nike Vomero 14 promises to be a legendary update to Nike’s heavy-duty plush neutral trainer. A full-length zoom air unit is embedded in a midsole of Nike’s cushioned and responsive React foam for that difficult to achieve performance combination of soft and responsive. Rumor has it that the actual zoom air unit in the new Vomero is shaped like the graphite plate in Nike’s legendary Vapor Fly 4%. This gives the Vomero the same falling forward, pop off the forefoot feel that accompanies the Zoom Fly and the Vapor Fly 4%. In addition to soft and responsive, the Vomero is also inherently stable. If you haven’t tried the Vomero before, you will find that it provides a dynamic, neutral ride for long fast miles
When Nike announced that a new version of the Zoom Fly was on the horizon, fans of the Vaporfly 4%, the original Zoom Fly, the Epic React, and the Peg Turbo got excited. The Zoom Fly FK takes DNA from all of those shoes and builds on it. First, rather than using a “carbon-infused nylon” plate like the first Zoom Fly, the new model uses a true carbon plate, similar to (but not exactly like) the Vaporfly. Testers have reported that the new plate is less aggressive in the new Zoom Fly. You should be able to use this shoe for slower-paced running, which was next to impossible in the first version. This can be a true everyday trainer, unlike the first Zoom Fly, which was ideal for racing and tempo runs. If you liked the bouncy responsiveness of the React foam in the midsole of the Epic React, you’ll love the feel underfoot in the new Zoom Fly FK, which uses React foam rather than Lunarlon. Runners that liked the softness of the Peg Turbo, but missed the carbon plate, will like the responsiveness of the new Zoom Fly. Lastly, the Flyknit upper makes for a much more comfortable form-fitting upper. The new Nike Zoom Fly Flyknit is packing in Nike’s new technologies to achieve next level performance.
The new Nike Structure is all about providing stability in a lightweight, performance-focused shoe. Previous users of the Structure will find small tweaks to improve a great shoe. New wearers of the Structure 22 will experience a lightweight trainer with unobtrusive stability. An engineered mesh upper allows for a form-fitting, customized fit, while a partial bootie gives a secure feel. The general fit is enhanced by flywire cables to facilitate fit around the heel. A Zoom Air unit in the forefoot continues to contribute to responsive cushioning. This is a lightweight, comfortable shoe ready for all of your running needs.
Nike’s new Air Zoom Pegasus is all about comfort. Building on the fantastic previous version, the new Pegasus offers a full-length Zoom Air Unit for the first time for a more even ride. The new beveled heel contributes to an even ride by providing a smoother transition from landing to toe-off. A distinctive heel collar designed to keep pressure off of the Achilles also contributes to a more comfortable experience. Engineered mesh and a partial bootie construction provides a more secure fit than the previous version. The Pegasus also features a high resiliency sock liner for more underfoot support. All of these innovations make the miles effortless and make a great running shoe even better. The new Pegasus 35 has its official release early in June.
