Best extremely durable Nike shoes for Men

The Portland athletic giant got its start making running shoes. A waffle iron and billions of dollars later, Nike is the worldwide leader in making, marketing, and selling running shoes (among other athletic products). In fact, the current CEO of Nike got his start designing Nike's most popular running shoe: the Air Zoom Pegasus. Over the years, Nike has continued to perfect its popular running line, developing shoes for every stride, every budget, and every style.

There are durable shoes and then there are extremely durable shoes. Extremely durable shoes can withstand pavement pounding and trail climbing. They're shoes that go past the traditional 300 mile replacement mark and allow you to get up to 600 miles. And while we wouldn't recommend giving them as heirlooms to your children, extremely durable shoes truly can withstand the test of time.
