    Comments about Mens Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 Running Shoe:

    Before I bought these shoes I had a terrible time finding shoes that gave me the support and cushioning I needed to accomidate my weight and to give me the right arch support. I was constantly getting blisters on my heals or had aching feet from not enoough cushion. Since buying the Volermo+5 I haven't had a single problem with blisters. The shoes are comfortable beyond my expectations, even when running 10 plus miles at a shot. I liked them so much that I immediatly went out and bought a second pair.

    I would definately recommend this shoe to anyone.

      Just retired my old Vomero+ 4's after about 1000 miles. My new 5's feel a bit more responsive with more mid-foot support. Looking forward to another thousand miles of comfortable running.

        Comments about Mens Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 Running Shoe:

        Probably the best long distance endurance shoe I have ever encountered in 25 years. All of the new shoe designs are getting narrower and pointier on the front toe ends, and squeeze your little toes to the point of beeing bloodied. NOT this shoe! My feet are not torpedo shaped. This shoe is straigh sided, and has a blunt front end, and does not pinch your toes. Amazing! Also, most long distance runners are mid foot strikers, and unfortunately todays shoes encourage a very ineficent heel striking. My Saucony triumphs I had for 2 months before had no mid foot support at all, and you HAD to hit heel first as to not slap your soles on the hard pavement. Geez.

        This shoe is a fantastic mid foot runners shoe. It has a cut angular heel to discourage heel striking and you bound along at a high rate of speed with a fantastic energy return on each stride. They do NOT feel mushy like my older NB shoes did. I just wanted to keep running and running in these, and my very first run I blasted off 15 fast miles - and wanted to just keep going. If you are a marathoner and are serious about setting new PR's and getting the most efficient running shoe ever, get the Vomero 5's!

          Comments about Mens Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 Running Shoe:

          As I started to ramp up my weekly mileage I was looking for a shoe with a bit more cushion. The Vomero 5 did not disappoint. I'm 5'10" 160 lbs and a neutral to slightly over pronator. This shoe just fits great. Great feel in the midfoot and toebox areas without being sloppy. As far as the heel, holds my foot in place without any slippage during downhill runs.

          Never thought I'd be in a Neutral+ but glad I found a home in these for my LSRs.

          Comments about Mens Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 Running Shoe:

          I have been wearing Vomero's for about 3 years now. My first model was the Vomero 3's. Just like anyone else, I bought extra pairs since I found the shoe that was perfect for me. Then it was time for a new purchase. I never tried the 4's but decided to purchase the 5's. Right from the beginning they felt too wide for my medium foot, but I kept them resulting in tying them tighter. The bottom line is they only lasted for 6 months, I am starting to have shin splints and the soles have worn out.

            Comments about Mens Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 Running Shoe:

            Nike is finally catching on to design shoes for bigger build people. Being 250+lbs it has been a challenge to find a shoe outside of NB or Asics that can withstand the pounding that a shoe takes from regular running. I am a fan of the Vomero line and these shoes hold up for 300+miles and continue to look good while taking a beating.

                  I have put a little over 100 miles on this shoe now. It is a great shoe. They feel a bit snugger than my previous Vomero 4s, but in a good way. The one thing I must agree on with some of the other reviews I have read regarding this shoe is the cushioning. It is good, but not quite as plush as the Vomero 4s.

                  Purchased these shoes to train and run in the LA Marathon and they were awesome! I badly injured my left foot which required 7 pins & screws about 5 years ago, so my foot still has issues. I tried the Pegasus which was good, but was then turned onto the Vomero. The extra cushion is what I need and it carried me to complete my first marathon well under 5hrs.

                      5'10", 178 pound male, 15-20 miles per week. Former Asics buff who wanted to try something new. Did a lot of research prior to purchase. This shoe is amazing! Great fit, wide forefoot (like an Asics shoe), a lot of cushion. No hot spots, no blisters...fits like a glove. Recommended for runners who want a little more cushion than a Nimbus can provide, plus a better ride.

                      Note: I wear an orthotic for high arches, and use Lock Laces.

                        I am a long time Pegasus runner. I asked what would be a Peg alike and I was given this shoe and I am very pleased. I ran my first race 2 weeks ago after being out 5 months from spinal surgery and it felt real good. Thanks

                          Great cushioning.....period! I run about 15 miles per week and roughly 2 5k's per month. These feel lightweight and the cusioning is fantastic. I've tried: asics nimbus, kayano, and cumulus. While they are really good too, my legs feel less fatigued after running in these. I will be buying a second pair soon!

                            I have had the Zoom Vomero 3's and 4's and I am ruined. I have tried premium Asics among others (Kinsei's) and still go back to the Vomero. They are soft and cushy. I have worn them completely out at around 600 miles plus or minus a hundred. I highly recomend them for being light, cushioned, and good for a 180 pound plus marathoner. Note---I do wear custom orthodics for my high arch/plantar fascitis.no pain with these

                              Great shoe for heavy heel strikers. When I started training for long distances three years ago, I suffered through shoes that didn't have enough cushion. I found this shoe at the Seattle Marathon expo and have been loyal to it ever since. I'm 5'7" and 175 lbs. I run 20-40 miles per week. I have to replace the shoe after 250-300 miles, so it is expensive, but my body appreciates it.

                              I am currently training for an Ironman in Nov. 2010. I have three pairs of Vomero 4's 2E. I have over 900 miles on them. Great Shoes. The Vomero 5's are a little different for me. The 4E is a great fit for my foot. The 5's are a little stiffer underfoot for me. Definitely a firmer ride. The 5's don't support my arch like the previous model. After running for an hour in the 5's my arches don't have the support that I need. I will only be using these shoes for shorter runs and definitely not for my upcoming Ironman. So you'll have to excuse me so I can continue my search for my next shoe. Last time it took me 4 months to find the Vomero 4's. Wish me luck... My advice to runners. When you find a shoe that you love. Buy all of them that you can get your hands on!!!

                                  I'm a lady with big feet. I have to buy Nike's Men's 11.5 since Nike's women shoes only go up to size 12.
                                  This is the 5th pair of Nike's Zoom Vomero's I've purchanced and I love them. I do have a tendency to go through shoes more quickly than others but I like shoes to fit perfectly.
                                  I love the arch support in these shoes and the broader toe box.
