I bring you Nike’s latest installment of the Vomero line! I’ve been running in Vomero’s since version 2 and they are my long distance shoe of choice.
If I am doing marathon / high mileage training, it’s in Nike Vomero’s!
First things first, these shoes are smokin hot! Look at those color combinations! I say it a lot, but Nike really understands both runners and style.
Now for the real details… the main change that Nike is boosting is the fit:
Unlike the Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5, the latest version of this running shoe features a men’s-specific midfoot with elastic mesh panels that lock the foot down and create an adaptable fit, stretching and flexing with the foot for comfort and support through all phases of your run. This update also boasts a mesh inner sleeve that wraps around the entire foot for a plush, comfortable fit and easy on and off.
You can head over Nike’s site for the official specs (if that’s your thing).
My first run in this pair was a 7 miler and they felt like butter right out of the box! How many shoes can you say that about?
All in all, Nike did a great job on the update. The shoe feels different but the same. Familiar… but better.
