Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Go far and stay dry this season in this waterproof and breathable Nike Air Desolation GTX trail shoe. Made with some of the same design elements found in Nike's best trail running shoes, the Air Desolation GTX features durable molded toe and heel bumpers with rugged leather and breathable fabric over a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex XCR membrane. Beneath the contoured footbed is a supportive full-length Phylon midsole and an internal shank to help keep your day pack in balance. If you hike in trail running shoes, you'll find that the Air Desolation GTX has a bit more support, which makes it a great choice for pronation issues associated with low arches or flat feet. You'll also find that the waffle-style Nike All-Trac trail outsole is excellent for a range of rock and gritty trail surfaces.

Molded rubber heel and toe rands protect feet and uppers from bumps and abrasion; heel and tongue loops aid entry and exit. Moisture managing nylon linings dry fast for comfort. Removable ergonomic footbeds add cushioning to midsoles; wicking topsheet helps manage moisture. Full-length Phylon™ midsoles offer lasting cushioning and support. Heel Air Sole units give consistent , lightweight, long-term shock absorption and stability. Thin thermoplastic urethane film across forefoot and Trailframe thermoplastic urethane arch shanks supply protection and support on rough terrain. Durable All-Trac rubber outsoles with waffle-style lugs bite into loose terrain and supply reliable traction and braking.
