Men's Nike React Terra Kiger 9
The Terra Kiger 9 features the lightweight and durable React foam for a smooth and responsive ride. The midsole in this edition consists entirely of React foam and no longer has an Air unit at the forefoot, putting you lower to the ground for a better connection. Of course, without compromising on comfort and speed, as the abrasion-resistant studs in the heel give you better grip and traction during descents and climbs on both wet and dry surfaces.
The redesigned upper is lighter and stripped down, but still gives you the cushioning you need during your trail runs. The engineered mesh upper is stronger, more flexible and keeps dirt out on pristine trails. The strap at the midfoot gives you stability and support and prevents your foot from sliding in the shoe.
Nike React technology is a lightweight, durable foam that delivers a smooth, responsive ride. We implemented a full React midsole and removed the forefoot Air unit from the prior iteration, so that you can get even closer to the ground without sacrificing comfort and speed.
Multidirectional traction lugs in the heel have high-abrasion rubber to help give you enhanced grip on ascents and descents, even in wet weather, so you can stay connected to the trail.
The upper is light and reductive, so the shoe feels like it disappears on your feet while still offering cushioning on the trails. It's made of engineered mesh, stronger and more flexible than regular mesh, and helps keep dirt out. The midfoot band provides stability and support to help minimize movement inside the shoe.
Hard-wearing, abrasion-resistant materials help provide durability in key areas, like the overlays around the toe and the rubber outsole wrap on the heel and forefoot.
