      I have superior rating for comfort & cushioning in this shoe. I have Plantar Fascitis & I use a half shoe orthotic to add cushion to the heel. I use them for walking approx. 4 miles daily also casual use. I purchased a pr. of Vormero 8 which I had to return in exchange for my 2nd pr. of Vormero 9. I will purchase more of them.

          So far i am very happy with this version of the vomero, I am very pleased the way the lace up feels. Also on all the other versions the front bulges when laced, they redesigned this part and it really helps. The only problem i have is that the soles on all the vomeros seen to wear out to fast in the mid foot.

            I loved the 6s, I burned out 4 pairs. 7s lacked the cushioning which is critical for me at my age/weight. Never tried the 8s. After 40 miles on the 9s I can say Nike got these right. I am going to stock up once they go on sale. The only con is the tongue feels a little thin.

              Comments about Mens Nike Zoom Vomero 9 Running Shoe:

              ... or how to kill what used to be a great shoe! Somebody should tell Nike to stop trying to improve a perfect shoe if this is the result. I have owned almost any Vomero model but, starting with the 7 series, things have changed dramatically. By far the 9 is the worst Vomero ever. Very uncomfortable, with the new upper, especially the minimal tongue, that pains the top of my foot. Full of unnecessary features, like the side laces and lateral plastic "web". Very poorly breathable. A complete mess. Time to say goodbye and go Asics.

                  Feel much better than 8's. I don't know if they are actually constructed differently than 8's, which just did not feel as well cushioned as prior Zoom Vamero's that I have owned. Enjoying these so far. .

                  53 y/o, run 25+ miles per week, sub-4 hour marathon pace and have used Pegasus for years. As my body doesn't like the running pounding as much anymore, I have looked for more cushioned shoes than Pegasus, but depending on the model Pegasus sometimes still works. Tried Hoka, good for cushioning but too narrow so I got blisters. I liked Vomero 5 but not 7 and now with 9 I like the feel of them so far. I did need to get the wide width Vomero 9, maybe my feet are widening in my old age but the regular width 9 gave me blisters on the outside of my big and small toes.

                      After trying another brand, returned to Vomero and so far the Vomero 9 is an improvement over Vomero 7. You are not able to use the nike plus feature and I found the lacing a bit uncomfortable on my arch to start, but since it has been ok. Would recommend this shoe. I average 25 to 30 miles per week.

                        This shoe has great forefoot and heel cushioning, and is much lighter than expected. I alternate these with Pegasus+ 30s, and the only difference between the two is that the Vomero has more forefoot cushioning. The Vomero is much superior to the Saucony Triumph 11.

                            This my 3rd pair of Vomero shoes. I love them. I only wish this year's model came in yellow. Otherwise, it has made running very enjoyable for me.
