      Comments about Mens Nike Zoom Vomero 9 Running Shoe:

      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.

          Comments about Mens Nike Zoom Vomero 9 Running Shoe:

          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.

                    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.

                        ... 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.

                          Vomero are excellent shoe, the design is different on the 9's. But overall they are good shoes, and have helped my foot problems significantly!!

                            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.
