The Zoom Terra Kiger 2’s Flyknit upper material is so comfortable, light, soft and breathable my feet were in heaven. The upper fits like a racing shoe and keeps the feet secure on dirt, gravel and rock trails. I wore this shoe many times on trails and the upper, despite it’s lightness, seemed to hold up well. My only concern is the lack of a rock protector in the shoe, which could be an issue on more technical trails. I also found the heel cup a bit loose, however, I do have a narrow heel. The base provided great traction on various surfaces and I had no issues with rocks or other debris sticking in it during the run.
This shoe would be perfect for less technical trails and could even be used as a training shoe for longer runs and tempos on the roads. I think it would be a great trail racing shoe.
- Great traction.
- Loose heel.
- Not sure how durable the upper would be over the long term.
