Advice for Trail Runners: Nike Men’s Wildhorse 8 Trail Running Shoes in the Obsidian/Volt/Cool Grey/Baltic Blue colourway have been designed for runners covering long distances on rocky and technical trails. With rugged durability in mind, Nike have made some key updates to this popular model.
The React midsole is nicely responsive but delivers a blend of cushioning with a stable and supportive feel. It’s also lightweight and extremely durable. A rock plate in the heel section of the midsole adds another level of protection on rough, rocky terrain.
The outsole uses a couple of different rubbers. Firstly, Mitton rubber delivers additional traction on slippery surfaces. Next up the heel and toe areas usea more abrasion-resistant rubbe for increased durability. The lug formation on the outsole also optimises grip on broken, rocky trails.
The upper includes a idfoot saddle which locks the foot in place within the shoe. This is sure to inspire confidence when dealing with the technicalities of the trail! Lightweight overlays are also positioned in high-wear areas of the upper to deliver long-lasting durability and a secure fit.
Nike Men’s Wildhorse 8 Trail Running Shoes are pretty versatile and suited to varied terrain. If pushed we’d probably say they’ll perform best on dry, rugged and rocky trails where the superb underfoot protection will really come into its own!
Shoe size is a personal preference and everyone's feet are different, but we want to ensure you avoid any pain or discomfort from bruised toenails, rubbing, blistering or pins and needles.
Your running shoes should have enough width to allow you to spread your toes and should have some space at the front (we recommend having a half to one thumb's width of space from the end of your longest toe to the front of your running shoes).
This usually means that your running shoe will be at least a half size bigger than your regular shoe size though this can vary from brand to brand.
