Best Comfortable Trail Running Shoe for Women

The tongue is attached to one side of the shoe making it uncomfortable and bothersome.
The Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 4 was made for you to channel your inner Kiger Mustang. Named after the fastest of Oregon's wild mustangs, the Terra Kiger 4 has impressive traction capabilities, lightweight support, and provides a decent amount of shock absorption. This version is just like the Terra Kiger 2, with a few awesome upgrades.
Comfort and fit: We heard over and over from reviewers how comfortable these shoes are. It must be because of the Phylon midsole and molded sockliner. Another thing to love is the toe box. Human feet fan out at the toes and Nike is on the forefront of industry revolution, finally getting the shape right. As a result, your toes will no longer be painfully pressed together thanks to the wide, square toe box. The shoe also features a 4mm drop from heel to toe, so if you are used to more cushioned, higher-profile shoes, you might need to ease yourself into running in these. And, expect some sore calves.
Traction: The Nike Terra Kiger has a superior grip when conquering the trails. The studded, waffle-print outsole is grippy on all surfaces, including grass and rocky trails. As a bonus, the design won't let small pebbles get lodged in.
Breathability: An area where this shoe is lacking is its breathability. Although it does have mesh upper, it can become hot in warm temperatures.
Price: Ouch. These Nikes are a bit pricey but not too much more than the average. They're not cheap, but if you're willing to spend the extra dollars, you'll have sexy feet on the trail.
