Unboxing: Nike Zoom Wildhorse

Finally I decided to get a pair of running shoes specifically for my trail runs. Actually I am not a fan of running on trail due to the requirement of extra work of shoe cleaning after a wet or muddy trail run.

However, I had to take this challenge as this trail running concept is becoming more popular to run organisors.

Nike Zoom Wildhorse

The Nike Zoom Wildhorse is designed to let you attack the trails. This low profile shoe offers cushioning and protection without weighing you down, while a dynamic upper moves with your foot for optimum comfort. The lugged outsole provides versatile grip, so you can take on any trail, no matter the surface.

  • Anatomical heel is rounded for more natural range of motion
  • Mesh inner sleeve wraps the foot for a plush, comfortable fit
  • Molded sockliner enhances underfoot support
  • Mesh upper with strategically placed overlays for breathability and support
  • Dynamic Fit technology for adaptive comfort and support
  • Reflective elements for visibility in low-light conditions
  • Compression moulded Phylon and Cushlon midsole for dual-density cushioning and a responsive ride
  • Nike Zoom unit for low-profile, responsive cushioning
  • Rubber Waffle outsole for durability and multi-surface traction

The Shoe Hunt
Had to visit a few Nike store in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor for this shoe. Most of the Nike store still don't have this shoe in store yet. If yes, there are only a few pairs with 1 colour at RM378 price.

I decided to buy this Nike Zoom Wildhorse back at my hometown, Kota Kinabalu instead. At least some local sport store there had a few type of colours and sizes. Will use this shoe  on my next trail run in a few weeks time. I will be doing the XTerra Teaser - Night Trail Run 11KM in Putrajaya.

I totally love the comfort of this shoe. You can really feel the breathability at your feet. The outsole 60% road, 40% trail suitable for running route which have some off-road.

Item Recommendation: ★★★ (4/5)
