In this Nike Zegama video review, I’m putting this trail running shoe to the test on some of my favorite trails, that just so happen to be super wet and muddy right now, thanks to all the storms we’re having in Northern California right now!

The Nike Zegama is a shoe that’s stirring up the trail running community with its promise of impressive traction and comfort over technical terrain – join me as I put them to the test and reveal what they’re actually like to run in.

Here’s a quick summary of this Nike Zegama video review

The Nike Zegama shines with its exceptional traction, ensuring you stay grounded on even the most challenging trails.

The shoe’s responsive cushioning system adapts to rugged terrains, providing comfort over long distances but that ZoomX midsole is sometimes a double edged sword with it’s high stack height that lacks stability in some instances. The breathable mesh upper keeps your feet cool, supporting longer runs with ease.


  • The outsole design offers great grip on diverse trail conditions.
  • Balances comfort and performance for long-distance trail runs.
  • Keeps feet cool and comfortable during intense activities.


  • High stack can cause instability in some scenarios/terrains.
  • Tongue could be longer, and padding improved.
