Product Summary

The Nike Winflo 8 Shield is a weatherized road running shoe for your rainy day runs. They are a neutral shoe with a 10-millimeter midsole drop. It features Nike’s famous Zoom Air units in both the forefoot and heel for cushioning. The Winflo 8 Shield is only available in men’s sizing and comes in sizes 6.0-15.0.

The Winflo is water-resistant—it features a water-repellent upper, gusseted tongue, tape-sealed seams, and bonded eyestays to keep water away from your foot. The outsole is inspired by all-winter tires to provide traction in wet and dry conditions. Multi-directional shapes help to shed the water and microgrooves grip the road.

Customer reviews for the Winflo 8 Shield are generally positive. Users loved how affordable they were able to get weather-resistant shoes. They thought the shoes had good traction and were comfy and kept their feet dry. Users did wish they were available in more colors and suggested sizing up because they ran small. People also shared that the shoes were squeaky.
