Gear Review: The Nike Wildhorse 4, Is It Better Than The Wildhorse 3?

The Wildhorse 4 is a trail shoe from Nike offering loads of comfort, protection, and performance. At just over 13oz (12.5 US), the Wildhorse 4 manages to stay light for the amount of trail protection it offers. Built on an 8mm drop platform and having a last with a wide toebox, this shoe has a stable ride, and is one of the only non-zero drop offerings with enough splay room upfront. For the Wildhorse 4, my standard size 12.5 fit true to size.

Gear Review: Salomon Sense Pro Max

The Salomon Sense Pro Max is a max-cushion trail shoe from Salomon that comes in at 12.8oz (12.5) and has a 6mm drop. With 33mm of midsole stack height in the heel and 27mm in the forefoot, the Sense Pro Max provides a lot of underfoot protection. Unlike the softer max-cushion offerings from Hoka and Altra, the Sense Pro Max feels pretty firm and responsive on the trail.

Gear Preview: Nike Wildhorse 4

If you loved the Wildhorse 3, you’re going to love the Wildhorse 4 even more. The midsole and outsole remain unchanged, with the only real updates coming to the upper. The upper updates are major though, and in my opinion, very positive. I’ll cover all this and more in the preview below.

Gear Preview: La Sportiva Akyra

The Akyra blends a few elements from the Akasha and Ultra Raptor, but stands on it’s own as a unique performer in the lineup. I know this is billed as a trail running shoe, but few times have I worn a trail runner that felt this much like a designated hiking shoe. In this preview, I’m going to cover the Akyra from top to bottom, and provide my initial impressions.
