    Comments about Womens Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 Running Shoe:

    I'm happy to report, as one of the 1st of many runners in the Vomero 5, that it only gets better. I ran in the previous version last year, and the 5 looks and feels even better. No major changes, but the toe box feels roomier and is easy to adjust. The arch wrap also feels light and flexible, unlike with other shoes. My favorite thing is that I can feel more energy return as I run, maybe due to having more 'duralon' rubber on the outsole than the 4. Now, I just wanna run....

    Comments about Womens Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 Running Shoe:

    I love this shoe, in general. It was recommended by a local running shoe specialist when I was suffering from painful plantar fasciatis and heel spurs. I was convinced I needed cushion because my heel hurt, but I was told I needed something slightly stiffer to help stretch my foot in order to recover from the plantar fasciatis and heel spurs. It was true! My only complaint with this shoe is that, long before they were worn out, I have had "blowouts" in the air cushions in two different pairs of these. (In the first pair, I stepped on a twig, heard a hissing sound, and immediately noticed that my shoe had gone flat. The second pair was flattened by a little burr which put a smaller, slower leak in the cushion, again, rendering the shoe unusable for running. I still like the shoe and have ordered another pair.

      Comments about Womens Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 Running Shoe:

      I always hate to see my shoe updated. 9 of 10 times I don't like the update near as much. But in this case it's just as good if not better. Very comfortable and light. I'm not interested in speed so I don't make that assessment. But for endurance these shoe make the grade. Not sorry, even delighted that I decided to buy the new version of my trusted shoe.

        Comments about Womens Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 Running Shoe:

        If your feet roll in the least towards the outside this shoe may not be for you. In my case (I am a heavier, tall woman), the outsides of the shoe lost ALL stability factors within one year and my feet literally slid off the sides of the footbed. Very uncomfortable at that point. Sad - was a very expensive shoe last year.

          I'm a 5'10" woman, 155 lbs. I run 25-35 miles weekly, 7-9 miles per run, on road, pavement, or packed trails. These are the first running shoes I've owned that have inspired a review. I have a neutral gait and high arch. These are THE MOST COMFORTABLE RUNNING SHOE I HAVE EVER WORN . I am not kidding when I say it feels like running on spongy pillows. They give me bounce. They keep my muscles from tiring as quickly. A great roomy toe box (yes, like other reviewers I suggest ordering a 1/2 size up from your normal running shoe size). I have just gone online and ordered myself two more pairs so that I've got replacements when they wear out. Nike really got this one right!

                My first pair of running shoes 3 years ago were Vomeros - I felt like I put on a pair of slippers.....I tried other brands to alternate, but none worked or felt as well. I now own 6 pairs - mostly Vomero 4 and 5. Someone once told me that if you find a shoe you love and works for you....stick with it, so I have! And, Roadrunner has the BEST price on my favorite shoes!

                Comments about Womens Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 Running Shoe:

                I wasn't too sure about these shoes when I 1st put them on. They felt & looked wide & sloppy. Then I noticed that the strap across the arch was loose & had another (tighter) hole to lace through. I relaced the shoes using the tighter hole and they fit much better. I wore them around the house for a day just to make sure they were going to fit.
                I have now worn them for about 6 runs of 3 - 6 miles. They have awsome cushioning, nice and springy, no break in needed. I'm not sure I would pick them over my Nimbus, but they are a close 2nd (better than any others I've tried). That is mainly because of the wider fit, they don't hug my foot as well as the Nimbus. These are a great shoe to alternate with the Nimbus.
                I am a personal trainer and can be on my feet for long periods of time. I normally don't wear my running shoes to the gym, but these might be good for those days when I will be on my feet a lot.

                  A Road Runner consultant recommended these shoes to me when I was training for the San Diego Marathon back in 2008 and I have been running in Vomeros ever since. I have run 4 out of 6 Half Marathons in this product and about to run another Half in October. I love them!! They have the best cushion, cup my heel well, and are very light! As well, they are great for all seasons. Thanks, Road Runner for your help!

                  Comments about Womens Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 Running Shoe:

                  Have been running for 20 years, treadmill and road. Had given up on Nikes several years ago, as the quality started to go downhill. I need good support and demand lots of cushion, due to knee problems and orthotics use. The Zoom Vomero 5 delivers the cushion I had been missing with all those Asics, used to get with the older Nike Air Max series, and is even better than the Mizuno Wave Creation on that score. It's a little wider midway between heel and forefoot (at the arch), but can be laced tighter for support in that area. They are comfortable and fairly lightweight.

                    This is a great shoe. I have had the Vomeros 3 & 4. The 5 is a new design but beware you will wear a 1/2 size larger than you normally would in this shoe. For example-I wear a shoe size 6, Nike Vomero 3&4 size 6.5 and a size 7 in Nike Vomero 5.

                    Hope this helps!

                      by far the most comfortable running shoe for long runs--i have bunions & am used to having aching feet, but not since i've been wearing the voomero

                      I run 50K per week and the Vomero 4's were great. As I have bunions,the new Vomero 5's have been changed, and the new fabric in that area rubbed large blisters on the bunions. Returned the 5's that I had and ordered 4 pairs of the old Vomero 4's. Why did they have to change something that was already very successful??

                        I have been running in the vomero 4's and loved them the 5's are every bit as good maybe better. I have run in brooks and asics but the vomeros are just the most comfortable. I ran my first marathon last year in vomeros and did half of my training in them. Once I switched I found that I had less injury and soreness. As soon as I put them on I was sold I just love them. It might sound cliche but they are seriously the best running shoe I have ever worn. I have recommended them to 3 others and the feedback is equally as positive.

                        I'm very upset that I can't find this shoe anymore.
                        I have a bunion and this shoe was the best that I ever wore as it had the flexible piece right where you need it. I had several generations of this shoe & the new one isn't nearly as good. I also have a high arch and this shoe was the best all around. I've been running seriously since 1978 and have raced at all levels from 5k-marathon, preferring marathon and 1/2 marathon. I really hope this design would return.
                        My comment about wearing out quickly pertains only to the forefoot tread.

                        As stated I am not an AVID Athlete..so this is for all of us out there! I LOVE these shoes! The toe room for my big toe is super! I DID order a half size larger than my normal shoe size as that is what I had before...that works for me so I made the comment about 1/2 size. I DO wish there were more Vomero 5's available especially in the metallic gray coloring. I ordered white/blue and they came in a timely way...am very pleased. I was able to wear them right away! Now my older ones have become my back up shoes. I walk/jog/gym 6 days a week! These work!

                          I love these shoes. I started jogging again in my 40s after a break of many years. Not only was I packing 25 extra pounds (10 left to go!), but my knees are a disaster from multiple knee surgeries. I've tried several cushioned shoes, and the Nike Vomeros are the best. My knees never hurt, even when I run on pavement (I run mostly on a treadmill, but I train outside occasionally in preparation for 5ks). Technically, I'm a mild pronator, but that hasn't been a problem with these Neutral+ shoes. The only down side is that they are slightly on the wide side, especially in the heel. However, I lace them up nice and tight, and it's not a problem.
