Hoof it from the trailhead to the top, and handle vicious switchbacks, nosedive descents and rocky ridges and everything in between in the Nike Wildhorse 8. With an abundance of rugged traction, cushioned responsiveness and trusted containment to help keep you upright, it’s made for tough trail runs, the ones with limitless miles and gnarly terrain that’s too enticing to turn down.

For me the fit is on the large side, I could’ve sized down 1/2 a size for a more comfortable fit. The toe box is quite wide and provides plenty of room, I have quite narrow feet and this just made the size discrepancy more pronounced. Having said that the trainers are so comfortable underfoot due to the React foam. I really like Monochrome colourway with the lovely detail around the toe box with the swoosh and Nike Trail branding. The distance check boxes on the heel are a nice touch, I could see myself ticking off the milestones as I go. I especially like the reversed Nike Trail branding on the underside of the sole meaning it leaves an impression in mud of the logo in its correct orientation. The fabric upper is really lightweight but feels supportive. Overall the trainers feel light enough to not bog you down when running but also sturdy enough not to fall to pieces whilst giving a high level of comfort.

I’m a nurse on a busy ward and have tried many trainers over the years and these wildhorse 8’s are one of the most comfortable I’ve worn. They are great support around the entire casing of the foot and cushion well around the arch. Fabric was breathable throughout the day. Would highly recommend for an active lifestyle and are great for trail walks/runs.

The Nike React Wildhorse 8 delivers comfort and traction on easy trails as well as the more technical terrain as a result of the generous grip on the sole. The shoe allows for a comfortable ride thanks to the wide toebox and the inclusion of the react midsole. It fits true to size and is finished with a light and breathable upper material for those seeking faster runs. The shoe also has a stylish colour way which could allow you to double up for day to day activities. In order to improve this shoe I would like to see the inclusion of a water resistant material, particularly for navigating the softer trails.
