      Comments about Mens Nike Zoom Vomero 9 Running Shoe:

      I have been wearing Vomero's for the past 7 years. I currently wear the 8s and was tempted to skip the 9s and buy the 10s. I decided not to take a chance since the design is new with the 10s. Oh and the price was at least $30 less for the 9s. No complaints so far. Recommend to all runners with high arches!! Thanks for the great price and FAST shipping RRS.

          Run everyday, I change out my running shoes every 500 miles. Love Nike Vomero 8 &. 9 the best. I tried Vomero 10 and they changed it out too much. Not enough support in the toe bed area.

            Nothing is as cushiony as the Vomero 4. Every vomero since the 4 has been hard on the foot until now. The vomero 9 seems to be getting the cushion back. I have only used this shoe for a week but right away you can yell there is more cushion that the previous 3 models.

                      I left the Vomero's several years ago- they just didn't feel the same as the 5's - well I can say they're back. I use them for walking - great cushioning and comfort 6'2" 205. No Con's hopefully they won't change what has been a great shoe.

                      I'm 6'3 230 lbs. with medium to high arches, and I suffer from shin splints, I run 25-30 miles a week mostly on roads and sidewalks. I was running in the Mizzuno Wave Rider but was having serious problems with my calves, shins and ankles so wanted more cushioning to take the pressure off. I settle on the Nike Vomero 9, my first run was great, I love the cushion and traction I got on these with ice and snow on the ground, but my arches were a little sore after. My second run went well, I upped my mileage and the shoes felt great, great cushioning and light weight feel, once again my arches were sore after. I am going to try to switch out the standard insole and use my custom insole to see if that helps. Overall, one of the best shoes I've had in awhile.

                        This shoe has been excellent although I got RoadRunners custom fit shoe inserts, it has just made this shoe amazing. I suffered from shin splints really bad on both legs and just after running for a week my legs feel amazing. Although pricey for inserts and shoes I found that it's a small price to pay if I am able to stay healthy, legs feel great and am able to continue running. I recommend this shoe to all runners.

                              I've used Vomeros since the Vomero 2. This is the best one yet. A little lighter. Cushioning is just a tad firmer but still more than adequate. Very, very comfortable shoe. I run 20 miles per week. 200lbs.

                              Purchased these and the Cascadia 10's. The Brooks were a little small so didn't end up running in them. Only logged about 10 miles in the Vomeros because something aboutthem didn't quite feel right. The cushioning in the forefoot seems either raised or stiffer than the rest of the insole. Add that to the fact I wasn't crazy about the color scheme,I sent them back. Just picked up the Adidas Superglide 7's. Will update after a few runs.

                                  I run 50-70 miles a week and these shoes seem to have the cushioning I need. They do run a little small by about a half size. Have had them for a couple weeks and were great right out of the box. Will have to see how they hold up over time.

                                    I have been a runner for 50 years, therefore have witnessed the continuous improvement in running shoes since my first Converse canvas so-called running shoes. I have been with the Vomeros since 2007 and have never been disappointed. I buy the "D" width and have a slightly narrow foot. Of all of my shoes, Vomeros included, these are easily the best ever. For me the width is perfect. The shock absorption is good without being too soft. All of my Vomeros have always worn well.

                                      This is my third pair from the Vomero line (I've used the 6 and 7). I strayed from them for awhile, but when I felt like my heels were taking too much a beating as I upped my mileage, I came back and tried the new version. They fit great, and the cushioning is outstanding. Even with as much cushioning as they have, they are not too squishy. The soles also seem to have a lot more grip than I remember. I use them for runs ranging from 5 to 15 miles.

                                      Excellent shoe for long-distance running with plenty of room in the forefoot so blisters are not a problem. Cushioning is excellent and I love the color scheme. The only problem I have encountered is that I can only seem to run about 350 miles before I have to change them out for a new pair...still, I have run several marathons in them and find they provide excellent stability and endurance...I have purchased more than 5 pairs and will continue to use them until they change the design.

                                      I am 180lb runner and I run 30-40 miles a week.
                                      I really like the overall feel of the shoes, especially the room in the toe box.

                                      They do wear out pretty fast in my opinion

                                        I am very happy with these so far. In my 15 years of jogging/walking, I have purchased only one other pair of Nike. I mostly jog/walk in Gel Nimbus and Saucony - with occasional changes to Mizuno or others. I am quite large - 280 lbs and I under-pronate (suppinate) greatly. I'm not a heel striker when I jog - I strike mid-foot and have a high arch. I'm walking rather than jogging at the moment until I lose 20 lbs or so again but I find the cushioning in these to be great so far and I've put only about 25-30 miles so far mostly outside on a combination of pavement and trail but a few times on the treadmill. I am very happy with these will quite likely buy them again - we'll have to see how they hold up because I am hard on shoes.

                                          I love running in my Vomera's with a SOF SOLE Hi Arch Insert. This combo CURED my plantar fasciitis in just a few weeks. There is so much arch and support and over-pronation-stopping that it is amazing.

                                          The Vomera's hold all of my arch support inserts better, with more support, than any other running shoe I have tried...including other Neutral Plus shoes offered by Nike, and specially better than Asics. New Balance 1080v4's being in 2nd place, but still nothing compares to the Vomera if you are adding arch supports.

                                          The shoe offers great cushion without being soft or flat; for my 210# body. I float like a butterfly in these shoes.

                                          The shoes are so amazing, I want to wear them all of the time, however, the only problem with the shoe is the sole are so squeky when walking on any tile floor that it is absurd. My wife 86'ed them from the house. I have had many pairs of Vomera's over the last 7 years or so - all squeaked. None of my other Nike's squeak on the same floor. Come on Nike!?

                                            I'm 58 years old and I run between 30-40 miles weekly. i was using a very light-weight shoe before this one. I really appreciate the extra cushion and comfort.
                                            The only thing I don't like about the shoe is I don;t feel I'm getting enough traction even on dry roads.

                                              Let me preface my review by saying I ordered the WIDE version of this shoe. I have duck feet and all Nike shoes are way too narrow in standard widths - unlike other brands. If I want to wear Nike I have to order WIDE. These Vomero 9s in WIDE are a very good fit for me. I dont like my feet all pinched up anyway.

                                              Best thing about these shoes is the upper toe breathability. The mesh really lets the air in and you can feel it in breezy conditions. I bought the Vomero 9s to compliment my Pegasus 30s also in WIDE. While the Vomero 9s are not Nike+ compatible, they seem to offer about the same overall traction on pavement. They seem slightly heavier than the Pegasus 30s.

                                              I have about 250mi on my Pegasus 30s but have switched outdoor running to the Vomero 9s mostly because they are not Nike+ compatible and since I have a Nike GPS Sportwatch, I dont need the foot pod anyway for outdoor running, so Im transitioning my Pegasus 30s to indoor treadmill running to save their lifespan.

                                              The Vomero 9s in red/black are a nice looking shoe that match well with Nike running gear like shirts, shorts etc. Looks like same pigment of red. I like to look good when I run b/c when I look good I feel good and when I feel good I run well. Its a psychological game.

                                              If you have wide feet like me, you'll need the WIDE version. I normally wear 10.5 or 11, but in Nike I always order the larger of the two. So in 11 WIDE they fit perfect. Id rather have a little extra room I can lace up tighter if needed, than not enough room and feet that get bound up w/squeezing and circulation issues.

                                              The Vomeros are not a cheap shoe, but if you run 100mi/mth or more like me, there's no price too great on protecting your feet with a comfortable shoe. The cushioning is pretty good -- Id say equal to my Pegasus 30s. Like any shoe, the "freshness" of the cushioning seems to fizzle out a bit after 30-50 miles, but you get that with any shoe.

                                              Order them and give them a try. If you are a RR VIP like me, put some miles on them and test drie them properly. If they are not for you, send em' back for a refund and try a different set of wheels.

                                                  6'2" 215lbs. Great cushioning, very breathable and the fit is excellent. Could use a little more in the way of stability in the upper for turning sharp corners but, other than that, no real complaints. Was running in minimalist shoes and had to get used to the cushioning of this shoe and loved them once I did.

                                                    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.
