Unbelievably smooth ride!

I got these shoes on 3/31 and have run about 10 miles in them so far. When I put them on for the first time and laced them up, I was pleasantly surprised by the cushioning and flexibility. When I started my first run the shoes seemed to bounce off the pavement and moved me along like a self-propelled push mower! I have run in some variation of the Nike Lunar series for the past 5 years, but needed something with a bit more support without giving up the cushioning I have come to expect. These shoes fit that need perfectly! The Vomero has been the flagship of Nike running for some time now, and the 7's do not disappoint. They are fantastic for running, but also stable enough for training and the CrossFit classes I take. All around great shoe for the active athlete!

Great well cushioned runners

I have had all of the versions to date and at first I actually doubted that these were going to cut it. They looked and felt different to the rest. These fit really well and secure and has a pillowy softness at heel strike right through to toe off. This is a great update but wish nike puts more meat on the outer heel outsole like they used to.

Good Update

4

I am a male, 54 yrs old, 175 lb running 30-55 mpw and am a mid to front foot striker. I've worn the Vomero 4, 5 & 6 the past few years and have run 5 marathons. On advice from a specialty running shoe store, I tried the Brooks Glycerin (another neutral + cushioned shoe) all year this year and whenever I got up to 40 mpw or more ramping the miles up for marathon training, I started having calf tightness and hip pains. For me, running 15 mi in the Glycerins felt like I had just run a marathon. Bought a pair of Vomero 7's and put 41 mi on them during my first four runs and my calf and hip pains have started to go away. When comparing the Glycerin vs. Vomero specs on another website, the amount of mid and front foot cushioning is about the same for both shoes but the Vomero had significant more stability characteristics. I was going to forgo running a marathon this fall due to all my leg pains but with the Vomero 7's, I think I can run another one!

My go-to long distance shoe

4

I trained for my first marathon exclusively in this shoe putting over 400 miles in one pair. I'm a mid/forefoot striker and the blown rubber is your best friend here. Still, all that softness comes at the price of durability. Now that the shoe is "classic" it's the perfect time to buy. It's been almost a year since that marathon and I've run in countless shoes since then. I just bought a second pair of these because it is a great shoe for long runs. I wish the toe box were a bit wider (I have very wide feet and wear a wide in this shoe. Only Merrell Trail Gloves satisfy my desired toe-box space), but I can get over it as the mesh is pretty forgiving. I call this shoe the "work horse" of my rotation now, but I don't expect more than about 200 miles before noticeable break down. If you need a good cushioned shoe for days when you're spending hours on the road, AND you have other shoes to mitigate their lack of durability for your short/mid-distance runs, this is the shoe for you.

Different from Vomero +6

3

This shoe is markedly different in construction to the +6 it replaces. The HUGE difference is the way the tongue attaches to the shoe. The +6 tongue is completely sewn in on three sides, all along the eyelets to the top of the shoe. The +7 tongue is only sewn in on one side, at the base of the tongue; there is no stitching on the side at all. Why is this important? If you are a triathlete, the +6 is a great "no sock" shoe coming out of T2. The +7 is terrible. Without socks, the rough stitching on the +7 will tear your feet to shreds. Trust me, I discovered this the hard way. There are other differences: the heal crash pad in the +7 looks bigger and the way the heel cup is supported is also different. The +7 bolstering material looks like leather, giving it a richer appearance than the +6 which looks like vinyl. The +7 construction is surprisingly different from the +6; it's really a totally different shoe.

Squishy

I normally run with the Air Max models which I'm OK with. However, curiousity and the sale price led me to check out the Vomero+ 7 which had some great reviews on its comfortable cushion ride. I am 5' 10" and 202 lbs and require a neutral shoe (supinator). Run about 15 mi per week. This is a nicely-built shoe. I followed the recommendations and ordered a 1/2 size up. Width is fine in this sized-up version but as expected, a little long so I sometimes feel the tip of the shoe catching on the pavement as the trailing leg swings forward to begin the next stride. For me, this is not a replacement for my Air Max. It feels too squishy and gives me the sense that it's not very stable. My experience may be due to my heavier weight. Probably a good shoe for lighter runners, but I would not recommend this for 200+ lb runners. I expect these shoes to go flat sooner due to the softer sole materials.

Excellent Shoe

5

I'm a big guy. 6'4", 260, built like a linebacker. I tried these on at the local RRS store as I'm a forefoot striker with high arches. I used the shoedog heat formed insoles the store made for me, and this shoe is awesome with them. Its not particularly lightweight, but that doesn't really matter when you're my size. For walking, lifting weights, etc, it has plenty of heel cushioning,and for running, it has plenty of forefoot cushioning and responsiveness. I also like the colors it comes in, as there are some fairly neutral ones, unlike many shoes these days. The people at the RRS store were very helpful. I'd always been told by other running specialty shops that I pronated and needed a motion control shoe, always based on how I walked, never on how I run. Thank you rrs for helping me out. As usual, the standard insole is garbage, as it is in most shoes.

Disappointed

3

I have been a fan of the Vomero. I am a stocky guy that works out a lot that enjoys running as well. I under pronate so I need a neutral shoe, the vomero has always giving me the comfort I need without being too soft in the forefoot. This shoe fits slightly smaller than the previous versions. My biggest complaint is in the heel and midfoot cushioning. I was expecting this shoe to have even more cushioning since it was heavier but I do not feel that it does. I feel the forefoot still has the right amount of cushion to responsiveness and it does seem more breathable. Those are the only positives that I can give this shoe compared to its predecessors. I am going to try one more run in them, but feel sure I will be returning these as bad as I don't won't too.

Terrible followup to the Vomero+6 FAIL

1

I really liked the cushy ride of the Vomero+6 but the +7 is a totally different animal. It doesn't have nearly the same cushion, particularly in the midsole and forefoot. It feels like a stability shoe as it is not very flexible compared to the +6. Plus uppers are really hot -- I miss the open weave of the +6 mesh. What is really strange is these shoes gave me shin splints for the first time in my life. I was in denial about it until I switched to the Air Pegasus 29 which are much more flexible and have more cushioning than the Vomero +7, plus the Pegasus are less expensive. I didn't have much mileage on the +7s, but they were beating up my legs for some reason. Maybe it was the stiffness and lack of cushioning.

Comfortable quality shoe

5

Comfortable. Great with jeans. I'm 6ft, 215 and they are comfortable to run in. I've had 2 knee surgeries and I love these. Very stable. Not for marathons, great for the casual runner who needs a little added cushion. If you are a minimalist, these are not for you. If you a retired athlete like me, you will appreciate the comfort and stability, but still great for the gym. Not bulky at all. Still performance minded with stability. I normally wear a 12.5 in nike's and the 13's fit perfect. I wear 13's in puma and Adidas.

Good shoe

I run 18 to 20 miles/week and recently tried this shoe at the recommendation of the guy who's running a marathon training program I'm involved with. I had been running in some Asics Gel Nimbus shoes and have recently had a flare-up of IT band pain. My guy says the Vomero helped some other runners he's coached who ran in Asics and who also were having IT band problems. Haven't had them long enough to know if this is the solution to my problem but so far so good. The shoe fits well and is light and comfortable. I haven't taken it out on a long run yet but plan to this weekend.

Tongue issue have to get resolved

2

As stated in an earlier review, the contruction is different than on the V6 and this is a problem. I've been a 30-50 mile/week runner for over 30 years. I have been a Vomero fan since the Nimbus changes seemed to have reduced cushioning. Also, never really liked the WaveRunners or other neutral+ offerings. The tops of my toes have been bloody and blistered by the poor way in which the toungue is attached to the shoe. Otherwise, fairly similar to previous Vomero's - maybe a little stiffer. I sure hope the tongue issue gets resolved or I will have to suspend my long loyalty to Vomeros.

Great Training Shoe

5

This shoe is a great race training shoe. I rotated two pairs for marathon training and had no issues with muscle/joint pain. I'm 5' 11'' and 215lbs. Used in the race with no issues and would recommend for anyone's first race or if you have issues with muscle/joint pain. It's a "safe" shoe to run in. I'm training in them for my next race, but using a lighter shoe for the race itself this time. Was thinking of getting the 8's, but playing it safe and going with the solid 7s that worked well for me.

Nike keeps messing up a great shoe.

2

Why does it seem like every great shoe gets screwed up with an update? I have ran in the Vomero since the beginning. In my opinion, it was a great shoe up until the 5 then things have steadily gone down hill. I've always loved the cushioning and the 3 and 4 were their best shoes. I am 6'4' and close to 245. They were perfect but every update since the 6 i have had to return because of either poor fit or poor cushioning or poor tread life. Nike needs to go back to what they were doing right in the beginning.

Good shoe, but colors suck.

3

After numerous runs in the Vomero 7's they are right on par with previous versions of the shoe. The cushioning is still there and they as flexible as expected from this line of shoe. Not too much different from the Vomero 6, but the 7 is slightly heavier. I do like the arch wrap that gives a snug fit when you tighten them. Biggest drawback is the color availabilty. I've been buying the Vomero's since the 3 and have always bought them 1/2 up.

Cushion without clunk

5

Great shoe. This is my third pair this year. I switched over from the Asics Nimbus because the cushioning felt softer. I was also surprised how's light the shoe felt given the amount of cushioning it has. It's very soft. Only downside is that the shoe has a thick sole so your foot is positioned higher in this shoe compared with some of its counterparts which is fine for running on roads but has caused me to roll a couple ankles on the trails.

Great, cushioned neutral shoe

5

I am a Clydesdale who has run multiple marathons. Since the Nimbus 13 was updated to the 14, I switched to the Vomero 6 and now the 7 and have not been disappointed. The Vomero provides a wider toe box than the Nimbus and cushioning is nearly equivalent. It seems the Vomero 7 is slightly lighter than the 6 but little was lost in regards to cushioning or support. I have run several 15 plus mile runs in the Vomero 7s without problems.

It's a Runner's Shoe

I love Nike Vomero's, been wearing them for 20+ years. I am 63 and run 4 miles every other day. Comfortable, fit well and cushioned just right. My only complaint: they wear out more quickly than other shoes and I don't think it's the way I run. Still, I'd rather have a great shoe and replace it more often than one that is not as comfortable, not as cushioned, not as well fitting but lasts longer.

Great shoe right out of the box

Got my first pair last week run 5 miles in them the day i got them in the mail ran 10 more miles in them last week with no problems at all. So i order 1 more pair and got them today took them out of the box and ran 5 miles no problems at all. Great shoe. Been running in Nikes for years like them all but the # 7s are the best. Great running shoe. If you need a lot of coushion these are the shoes for you.

Still a great shoe

I am a 25+yr runner, I have tried all the recent shoes and they are bricks of death. I totally wore out the +6 because the tread was too soft. The tread in the +7 looks a lot better. This version is narrower in the toe box and a nice improved upper for comfort over the previous model. seriously now who would feel the extra ounce of weight LOL just get out there and run!

Felt good in the store but that was it !

Gosh going back wards here the Vomero 7 felt great in the store better then the Brooks but in real world wearing them the Brooks work for me better. I use these for walking only so your usage may differ from me. They don't fit good just behind toe box cushioning seems plenty but wrong foam maybe for me so could not wait to take them off after my walk will return them to RR. Brooks Gylcerin 10 much better for me and my feet.

Great shoe!

I am a 225 lb. runner. I have not run in a pair of Nike shoes many years and was a little apprehensive to purchase. Glad I did. Superior cushioning for a large runner like myself. The Fly Wire lacing system enhances the overall fit and comfort. Bought the Zoom Vomero + 7 as a closeout but would definitely buy the 8 next time I need to buy again.

Poor heel cushioning;Vomero 6 far better

2

I've owned every Vomero offering, unfortunately Vomero 7 ranks among the worse (simply my opinion). The upper is well designed, but the heel and arch offer very little in the way of cushioning. I've gone back to my 6's until I can find a suitable replacement. Just FYI; mid-fifties,7 day runner,6 ft/170,very high arches,mid-foot striker. Thanks.

The best Nike ever

5

The thing I like about this shoe is that it felt good right out of the box. It fits my foot like a glove with no pressure points or slippage anywhere. I am a neutral runner, and this shoe does not exert unneeded control over my normal gait. The cushioning is just right. It is the best Nike that I have ever bought.

The Best Shoes

I have been running with the Nike Vomeros since they first came out. The vomero 1. A lil under 7 years. These shoes by are are the best running shoes I've had. The only con that I have is that I have to replace them every 3 months. On average I run 12 to 16 miles a week. Hope this helps other runners.

Still the Best shoe for a runner over Six feet tall and over 200 pounds. Feels comfortable, snug fit and a great flexibility. Out of the Box they felt great. I Been using them since The first ones and this ones are The Best by far. My average daily run is from 5 to 6 miles and they perform with excellence.

I walk along Alii Dr in Kona and the Volt color though gaudy is readily seen by those driving. A real safety plus. Most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I clock about 50 miles a week and go thru a pair about every 3 months. I don't like the Vomero 8 and will be disappointed when I can no longer get the 7.

nike needs to provide wide shoe that will fit larger size runners who usually have a wider foot. their vomero 5's were a 4e and a great shoe when it came to width and cushioning. i love nike products and i'm disappointed when they only provide a 2e in their max cushioning shoe. jmho

So Far So Good

4

I bought two pair to replace two previous pairs of the 5's (helps me extend mileage and save my knees). Some of the reviews had me a little worried, but so far the 7's are keeping my knees and back happy. Given that I'm 6-2 and 200 with high arches I think that's commendable.
