Definitely a solid, solid shoe that I am definitely gonna put more miles on.
I've raced a ton in this shoe and it really does the job.
Flexibility also improved, while cushioning from the low-heeled, wide-based, balanced sole remains substantial.
This light trail running shoe should help you glide through all technical trials with tremendous ease. A size 9 men’s shoe weighs 256g.

Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 3 size and fit

It can accommodate runners who have regular foot shape and those with slightly wider foot. This shoe is available in standard widths of D for the men’s and B for the women’s. Those who experienced a good fit on its predecessor will have the same fit on this latest update.
The shoe uses the Dual Density Outsole that has a reliable traction on both wet and dry surfaces. It works well with the shoe’s oversized lugs that offer an impressive grip even on muddy conditions.
The Terra Kiger 3 comes with an enhanced Phylon full-length midsole for enhanced cushioning. The midsole foam is now approximately 3mm thicker than the previous version, delivering a lightweight yet resilient cushioning.
The midsole also have the brand’s notable Air Zoom that consists of discreet pressurized air pockets. These air pockets naturally flex while running, giving an enhanced responsive cushioning.
The midsole design of the 3rd version is similar to the Terra Kiger 4.
The Flymesh construction is something new on this version. It enhances the fit of the Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 3 and its lightweight seamless design gives impressive breathability and support. The Dynamic Flywire works hand in hand with the Flymesh upper. It enhanced midfoot fit and gives additional support without adding weight. The EVA sockliner of the shoe adapts the natural curvature of the arch and heel for an increased support and comfort.
