The Zoom Structure Triax +12 ESC Trail is based on Nike’s best-selling stability road shoe. The Triax+12 Trail is a stability hybrid shoe that is designed to run on all sorts of terrain, including trails. The upper is water-resistant, the gusseted tongue protects from rocks entering the shoe, and the rubber outsole is composed of waffle lugs and sticky rubber for improved traction. Testers found the Triax+12 to feel a bit bulky on the trail and the water-repellant upper did not breathe as well as traditional trail runners. Testers, however, reported excellent motion control and good cushioning ability, as well as a nice women’s specific fit. The laces on these shoes seemed a tad short and came untied quite easily, which can sometimes be a hassle when on the trail. A nice bonus is that the Triax+12 is outfitted with Nike+ technology which allows for up to the minute pace, distance, time elapsed and calories burned data to be transmitted wirelessly to an iPod device from a chip inserted into your shoe. Overall, Nike has done a nice job introducing a shoe that appeals to loyal Triax customers that seek a more rugged shoe.
