Nike's Air Zoom Vomero has long been known as a well cushioned, yet responsive everyday trainer, and the 10th version continues this heritage. Intended for runners seeking a neutral platform with ample doses of cushioning, the Vomero 10 is an everyday trainer that holds up well mile after well. Nike really went back to the drawing board in the product design and creation process of this 10th edition, and premium cushioning, upper, and midsole materials really make the Vomero stand out from the crowd.
For starters, Nike has fused Zoom Air cushioning units with Lunarlon material in the midsole which creates a responsive yet cushioned feel, albeit firmer than previous editions of the Vomero. According to Nike, this is the first time that these two midsole technologies have been combined which looks to be something that Nike will continue to do going forward, which, in our opinion is a good thing. In the past, the Vomero was notorious for feeling like a marshmallow, depending on the edition which wasn't ideal for many runners. The 10th edition feels much more runable without being overly cushioned either, which is a good thing. Secondly, Nike has adjusted the positioning of Flywire lacing on the upper, for an improved fit with less friction points, as well as added Flymesh throughout the entire upper. Flymesh not only breathes very well, but combines two layers of mesh into together, which adds to the comfort aspect as well. Lastly, an internal fitted bootie really wraps around the foot comfortably and securely.
Most importantly, how does it feel on a run? Really good. Exactly as we describe above, its definitely a cushioned ride without being too much or not enough cushion that's versatile to do anything from daily runs, to workouts, or even long runs without feeling clunky. In short, if you're seeking out a neutral everyday trainer with soft yet responsive ride, give the Vomero 10 a shot.
