Waterproof Nike Running Shoes for Wet Workouts
Hit wet paths and trails in comfort with these waterproof running shoes from Nike.
Cool, wet weather can be a welcome reprieve for runners. But a rainy run can quickly turn uncomfortable if an athlete's footwear soaks up every puddle it encounters.
Nike offers two waterproof running-shoe models—the React Pegasus Trail GORE-TEX and the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus Shield—that are designed with durable, moisture-repellent technology to keep feet dry, as well as tractioned outsoles for strong grip on slippery surfaces.
Read on to find the best waterproof running shoes to suit your needs.
Best for Running in the Rain (Wet Rocks and in Mud): Nike React Pegasus Trail GORE-TEX
When it's pouring outside, a shoe with traction and the ability to keep moisture out is key. The Nike React Pegasus Trail GORE-TEX shoe is made from waterproof GORE-TEX material and contains a generative traction pattern on the outsole, which helps runners maintain their grip with each wet step. The shoe also provides neutral-level support in the arch and outsole, providing extra flexibility when traversing rocky, muddy trails.
- Rubber on the forefront and outsole for extra grip when navigating wet roads and slippery trails
- Nike React technology to ensure a soft, lightweight stride
- GORE-TEX material to shield the wearer
- Collar gaiter to keep dirt, debris and water from coming inside the shoe
- Extra traction on the heel and toe to increase stability through uphill and downhill running
Best for Running in Snow: Nike Air Zoom Pegasus Shield Running Shoes
For runners trekking out on roads in the snow, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus Shield is an ideal shoe choice. It contains a water-repellent design and traction inspired by heavy-duty tyres to keep athletes steady.
- Lightweight and breathable weatherised shroud to keep the forefoot dry
- Special "Storm-Tread" outsole that mimics the traction contained in winter tyres
- Reflective-design material to help increase visibility in dark or stormy conditions
