160$* | 4MM DROP
A trail shoe, that comes with a very interesting look and numbers, showing how the trail world is more and more important for the giant Nike, and now using the name of one of the most famous races in the world, Zegama, and also after the vistory of one of their athletes 2 weeks ago: Nienke Brinkmann won in Zegama with record.
The full lenth Zoom X foam featured by this ZoomX Zegama made the move of the foam compound from the asphalt winning marathons, mounted in shoes like the Alphafly and 4%, to the trail scene, which guarantee comfort, reactivity and cushioning.

NIKE ZOOM X ZEGAMA: HIGHLIGHTS
Engineered mesh throughout the upper for a sturdy, lightweight and breathable feel. Extra skins placed across the toes for durability, as you can see in the image below and similar to the Nike React Pegasus Trail 4.
Allowing the water evacuation in case you go through wet areas, and providing great breathbility. The tongue is really thin, creating a nice food wrap.
Nike ZoomX foam cushioning uses cutting-edge engineering to provide the greatest possible energy return, turning the impact of your step into energy for your next stride. In fact, the Nike ZoomX is lighter, softer and more responsive than any Nike foam, designed to maximize speed by delivering greater energy return.
The ZoomX was derived from a foam traditionally used in aerospace innovation, applied for the first time in performance footwear in the Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite and 4%.
The rubber outsole has a deeper and multidirectional lug patterm to provide grip even in technical terrain, thanks to the lugs been separated and having 4mm. Moreover, the rubber from the outsole wraps up onto the forefoot to help resist abrasion and provide more durability
NIKE ZOOM X ZEGAMA: CONCLUSION
We see here how Nike, continues with its commitment to grow in the world of trail, and little by little it is picking up pace in this regard, with more and more models such as the Nike React Pegasus Trail 4, Nike Terra Kiger 8 (Champion of Spain 2022, and not only with models, but also with more athletes such as the recent champion of Zegama, Nienke Brinkman.
These ZoomX Zegama come with a price within the “normal” range (160$) and numbers similar to the trail top shoes at the moment in the market: more than 30 mm of cushioning (37 mm / 33 mm in this case), and mesh designed to allow the evacuation of water and breathability and the full Zoom X foam that is the same as the Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite and 4%, so it provides great comfort, reactivity and agility for a trail shoe that we can use for multiple purposes, from training to competition, even over long distances.
Waiting to confirm the weight by the brand (they look like hovering around the brand just below 300gr.), and being a trail shoe without carbon plate, we would dare to resemble them for example with the Hoka Speedgoat 5, Saucony Xodus 11, Salomon Ultra Glide and many other d elas that we have been presenting here.
Obviously the Nike rubber is not the same as the Vibram Contragrip or the specific La Sportiva, however according to the information of the brand it will offer safety in technical terrain, even wet.
Hopefully we can try them soon and tell you here.
