Along with the more ro­bust Wild­horse, the Kiger works as Nike’s one-two punch on the trails. This shoe, now ma­ture in its de­sign and only mak­ing sub­tle changes from the pre­vi­ous ver­sion, is Nike’s lighter, more race-friendly model.

The Fly­mesh up­per doesn’t just look slick, but also per­forms quite well and can take a sig­nif­i­cant beat­ing. Nike’s Fly­wire lac­ing sys­tem works well enough in the Kiger, but isn’t quite as snug and spe­cific a fit as Fly­wire can be in their other mod­els. Re­gard­less, our testers had no com­plaints about the fit or hold of the shoe on the foot. It’s also got a nice, wide toe box for toe splay, and a comfy sock-like in­ner lin­ing, which makes the Kiger a re­ally well rounded trail shoe for neu­tral run­ners.
