Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

In twenty years of running this is the best shoe I have ever worn. Nike really outdid themselves this time. Please don't screw this one up it brought me back into the fold.

Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

I'm putting a three rating because the shoe fits so tight. It feels like it's cutting the circulation of the foot off. They are to narrow. Other than that, they are great shoes with extreme cusioning. Does need more width though.

Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

Best cushion an very ideal for a high arch and neutral runners. I stopped using Asics Nimbus. The Nimbus felt like rocks next to the NIke Air Vomero. I hate to post this comment because I always dislike NIke the company. However, I really liked this shoe. I used Vomero 2 and Vomero 3.
I will call it the "Honda or Toyota" of shoes. Reliable agood ride.
(According to JD Powers the Mercedes is too unreliable to compare this shoe to that brand)

Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

This shoe was perfect for me. Maybe not for everybody, but after a lot of reading, I tried the Vomero and finally found the right shoe. I'm a 25 mile per week runner that carries 10-15 pounds more than a regular runner. The extra cushion is a life saver. I've never had any pain from the shoe, although I've heard some complain of Achilles pain because its too soft. Not a problem for me. This shoe makes the pegasus feel like you are running on wooden soles.

Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

Nicest riding, softest shoe I've ever used. Would be 5 stars if not for the erratic fit and durability. 1st pair were really narrow but lasted about 350 miles. 2nd pair fit better, still tight though, but were shot at 200 miles. Back to Asics I guess.

Nevertheless, the Vmero is a very decent shoe but with stale technology and in my opininon overpriced.

Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

By far the best running shoe I've ever worn. The cushioning is unsurpassed by any other shoe I've worn. The only negative is durability, but frankly I would sacrifice that any time for the lack of wear and tear on my knees and legs. If you want a cushioned (like no other), comfortable shoe this is the one for you.

Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

Got hold of the Vomero 2 this week.3 good runs so far...(I live in Oz). Fantastic shoe! Brilliant ride, cushion as a good as V1, stronger midfoot shank, more durable outsole(appears more robust),incredible breathable upper, lightweight, flexible,BUT best of all is the fit. Wicked, tight heel, accomodating mid and forefoot and a lacing system that allows you a great fit( narrow footers will still be able to get a snug fit, while ave-wide footers like me don't get squeezed). Nike has come up with the goods again!!

By MCM runner

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

I rotate the brands/models of shoes I run in each day, and at any given time I'm using 5 or 6 different pairs of shoes. I've had great experiences with Adidas and Mizuno, and good experiences with ASICS and Saucony. I thought I'd rotate a pair of Nikes in, and bought the Vomero's because RRS had a great sale price. BIG mistake. The Vomeros are AWFUL. (I used to run in and like Air Pegasuses, but moved up to Neutral+ shoes from Neutral). And this will be the first pair of shoes I've EVER returned to RRS. WAY too tight in the foregoot compared to the other brands. And WAY too soft in the heel. I wouldn't run another mile in this shoe even if Nike were sending them to me for free.

Great ride. Very soft. I am a bigger runner, and this was a really plush ride for me. Only downside, the shoe wore out all at once, right around the 175 mile mark. The plastic arc on the bottom cracked in half on both shoes. The soles wore out also, but it still is a soft ride.

Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

I like how most Nike's uppers are snug, but this one is too snug. Also, the outsole is a bit too large & wide for the responsive ride a shoe like this should have. Otherwise, it's nice and light, has great cushioning and smooth heel-toe transition. I'll have to try the Elite to see if I can get the great fit and ride of the old Zoom Alpha and Spiridons.

Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

Hopefully I can answer a few questions I have seen about the Vomero II. I had to opportunity to wear test the Vomero II. (I am 6'1" and weigh 190, wear a D width) Now, it was made clear in the feedback that Nike gave to me and the other wear testers that the final version may differ slightly based on our feedback. I had never worn the Vomero I before wear testing the Vomero II (no retailer in my area carried the Vomero, so I was unwilling to buy it sight unseen). After wearing the Vomero II, I thought I would give it a chance. The Vomero I and II are very different. The II is a firmer shoe. The II felt responsive, where as the I felt "smushy". The Vomero II is very well cushioned, but still very light and responsive. I am looking very forward to the release of this update. Based on my brief eight week experience it is one of the best shoes that I have ever worn.

By ZMoore

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

I have typically run in Brooks, Saucony, or Asics. After two years of disappointment in Asics, I primarily relied on Brooks and Saucony. Despite my contentment with these two brands, my local running store sold me on a pair of Nike Air Vomero?s. I am a male, 5?8?, 140, and run an average of 30 miles a week. I was looking for a neutral cushion shoe for my 10+ runs. Once laced onto my feet, the Vomero?s felt great: lots of cushion and nice room in the toe box. Two miles into a middle-distance run, however, my feet felt as if they were falling asleep. No matter how much I loosened the lacing, I could not mitigate the feeling. I opted to do a test run with no laces due to the sock style tongue. My test only resulted in the same feeling. The shoe is excessively tight over the arch of your foot. Thus, I have been very disappointed with the structure of this shoe. What appeared to be a promising neutral cushion shoe from Nike turned out to be a waste of 110 dollars. Strange thing is that I ha

Male 5'3 130lbs . Had knee troubles training for a marathon, couldn't find a shoe to get me over 10 miles before the pain showed up. These got me through it. A Very, Very cushioned shoe, not a big fan of the way they feel, but they do what others can not, get me through long runs without pain.

and was getting extreme ankle pain and tendonitis in my achilles. the cushioning on the Vomero is unparalleled and the midfoot flexion is springy. I've been running in them over a month and no problems yet, only worry is how long they will last with my build.

By Ron

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Nike Air Vomero Running Shoe:

Great shoe overall, excellent cushioning and flexibility. Downside: the outside of the sole has only the softest materials, which makes them wear out WAY too fast if you're a supinator. I can only get 200 miles or so!
Fit is PERFECT. Don't make them wider, ADD A WIDE WIDTH if necessary, don't change what Nike's have always been: slightly narrow.

Beware, these shoes are TOO SOFT! I ran in the Mizuno Wave Riders previously, and tried these because they were very comfortable when I tried them on, and when I took them on a short run (3 miles). But after training in them for a month (speed workouts and long runs), I developed tendonitis in both ankles. They just aren't stable enough for faster runners. Their high profile makes you feel like you're running a foot off the ground. Probably a good shoe for your average runner, looking for a comfortable training shoe at slower speeds, but they aren't good when you run a little faster.

The shoe is a tad bit tight in the toe box but not too bad for me as I have narrow feet but I have to say at age 47, I have increased my mileage to over 50 miles per week for over two months and it has been possible because of the awesome cushioning this shoe has. Im 6'5" and 190 and the durability is not a problem either...

Looking forward to Vomero II, these have been great but as with most runners haven't been happy with mid/fore foot fit. Thin socks and different insoles(Pegasus '05)have made them bareable.The Zoom Air is still going strong after 8 months but has lots of forefoot outsole wear as you'd expect. ( I rotate my shoes, Vomeros and Landreth). Fingers crossed for that wider forefoot fit on IIs.

Tue, February 06,2007:
My last 3 pairs of running shoes has been Vomero. They are definitely too narrow in the forefront area. I also think they are too little cushioned in the forefoot area as I get pain there after 20K and up(which I newer experienced with different versions of the Nimbus or Pegasus). Fast and light to run though.

The Vomero has been a pretty good shoe for me. I really liked the cushioning. The width is too narrow. I have a medium width foot and I have experienced quite a bit of discomfort while running. I hope the II will be slightly wider. I know depending on where the shoes are built can determine fit.

I like it. Good cushioning and easy to run in. My only complaint is the width is too snug but that is not a surprise since all Nikes are sized much more narrow than other brands. My feet are small and narrow to begin and usually have too much room in other brands; I don't know whose feet Nike molds their lasts from. I would have rated the Vomero a 5 if not for the annoyingly narrow fit of the shoe.

(See prior post, I ran out of room) The Vomero II is one of those rare shoes where you can forget about your shoes and your feet and just run. I like others feel like the Vomero I is too tight and difficult to adjust the fit on. The Vomero II will be an improvement.

Like others, I noticed a change in the fit on my second pair. These are much tighter through the forefoot. Loosening the laces helped a bit, but they are definately tighter when compared with my first pair. I still consider them a good shoe, but consistency in sizing seems to be a problem. I have heard that these shoes are going to be updated soon? Has anyone heard anything about this?

nike has two big problems with this shoe. 1 it needs to offer extra width, the forefoot is too tight. 2 whatever third world country is making the shoes it needs to be more consistant with sizing. with a great shoe you should be able to put them on and not worry about lacing and just go run!!!

Love the shoe, if you have not tried it on, it is by FAR the softest shoe on the market. Only two thingd I would change - First I agree the vomero does run tight. It made my feet fall asleep the first time I wore them. I corrected this by re-lacing them for wide feet, lacing every second eye(RRS sends a card out when you buy shoes that shows how to do this). Second problem, the insoles are junk. They have a small insert 'pad' at the forefoot and the sole, this insert is either glued or welded in. The 'seam' around these insert pads is hard as a rock. After about 4 miles it feels like there is a rock in your shoe. At first, I thought the problem was with the air insert, but I fixed this by putting in the insoles from my Mizuno Precisions (both size 11). The insoles fit perfect - and after relacing and the insole change, the shoes were perfect! I've tried every N+ shoe under the sun and after the mods I made to the vomero, nothing comes close.

To "love to run" comment: I too had one of the first pairs and thought they were outstanding; second pair was clearly different, not just the color of the swoosh, though they claimed no changes. Is there anything to this. Overall, still very good, but too flexible for marathon (I cramped) so I'm back to Saucony Trig 4 ride which is the perfect shoe for me. In closing though, excellent job by Nike, if only to overcome their automatic discounting in the minds of many because of their marketing/fashion powerhouse. Let's not forget they started a lot of the technology we rely on in the first place and I'm getting tired of people dinging them just because they have a mall presence! Sorry I got carried away - excellent shoe, could use some adjustments, but I'm back to Saucony.

When adding orthotic inserts, they get cramped. The solution is to use a scissors to cut the lateral bands on each side of the tongue all the way down to the base. This allows the shoe to expand to the newly raised arch.

Boatloads of cushioning!!! Feels like pillows on your feet. Great for longer runs. They are a little bit too squishy for speed work though. Highly recommended marathon shoe!

I have typically run in Brooks, Saucony, or Asics. After two years of disappointment in Asics, I primarily relied on Brooks and Saucony. Despite my contentment with these two brands, my local running store sold me on a pair of Nike Air Vomero┐s. I am a male, 5┐8┐, 140, and run an average of 30 miles a week. I was looking for a neutral cushion shoe for my 10+ runs. Once laced onto my feet, the Vomero┐s felt great: lots of cushion and nice room in the toe box. Two miles into a middle-distance run, however, my feet felt as if they were falling asleep. No matter how much I loosened the lacing, I could not mitigate the feeling. I opted to do a test run with no laces due to the sock style tongue. My test only resulted in the same feeling. The shoe is excessively tight over the arch of your foot. Thus, I have been very disappointed with the structure of this shoe. What appeared to be a promising neutral cushion shoe from Nike turned out to be a waste of 110 dollars. Strange thing is that I ha

OK, I think I have found my shoe. After many other Nike's and Asics as a N+ runner, this is by far the best. Just my first short 6 mile run, but, this shoe is the best I have found so far. Try it, those wanting superior cushioning will not be let down. I get amazed that people complain that the shoes don't fit right..... Why not get the right size..... I did and they are super!

Holy SH&%! These are the best shoes I have ever had. I am 5' 10", 180 lbs, with high arches. I've had a few pairs of Asics Gel Nimbus - although they last awhile, they never seem that soft to begin with. I loved the Shox TL line, but now they're $150 and only come in Halloween colors. These are the most comfortable, cushiony shoes I have ever worn. They feel like they are about 1/4 size too big on top of the 1/2 they advertise...so if you are on the edge go down yet another 1/2. I tend to have wider than average feet and have not experienced any of the problems others posted.

For those who have problems with the snug forefoot. I loosen my laces everytime I put the shoes on. The lacing system tends to snug up on me when I pull the laces tight to tie them. If I loosen then all the way down, I get a better fit. I really like these shoes. I understand they are due for a "refreshing" in early 2007. Hope they are not changed too much.

im 180lb. I bought this shoe for long distance running. I ran with this shoe 3 days in a row total of 18 miles. I agree with many; the the width is to snugged which is annoying while running. You feel slight pressure. May cause hotspots etc. Granted it is a very soft ride but for racing it seems the shows would work against you. If you have narrow feet might be the ideal shoe otherwise, stay away. I am returning mine to nike.

I'm 5'9, 175 lbs and run 20-30 miles per week. I use to run in the Asics Gel Nimbus, but because of thier changes I now I have a new shoe. The Vomero are possibly the most comfortable running shoes I'm ever had. The only change that I would suggest is to make the toe box a little wider... had to go up a half size.

I'm putting a three rating because the shoe fits so tight. It feels like it's cutting the circulation of the foot off. They are to narrow. Other than that, they are great shoes with extreme cusioning. Does need more width though.

Ran 20 miles (over 5 days) in these before being in such pain that I had to take them back. I hated these shoes and thought maybe they were just breaking in but was not the case. When I took them back the lady at the running store said Nike is aware that the forefoot cushion is inadequate and that is one of the things they are changing in the new model available soon (I think). Also said that Nike has a tendency to break down quicker than other shoes. I am a heavy runner so this is very important as I break down shoes quicker because of my weight anyway. I was so disappointed in these I can't imaging ever even trying Nike again!

Never been a Nike fan (have a bit of Mall fashion reputation to be taken seriously) and this is the first pair for me. 170 LBS, high arches (plain vanilla neutral) and I like a fair amount of cushioning in the forefoot. Normally run in Adidas Supernova and the Vomero feels great! They are certainly comparable and have nice toe box room. Before these I tried Asics and was sorely disappointed.

I'm a big guy, 230 but I move like a jungle-cat on occassion and this shoe doesn't work for me. Durability is poor -after 100 miles forefoot broke down past the treads. I'm a heel striker and achilles' ache like never before. No where near enough support for big guys despite being very comfortable and possessing nice cosmetics. Good shoe for dudes south of 180 I think.

Best Nike in decades, ideal Marthon shoe (from a vet of 40+ incl. Boston). Have been running since early 70's and ran in the the Obori. Drifted away from Nike with better Adidas, New Balance and Saucony. Thrilled with the Vomero, but proper fit (snug instep is better for me, toe box here is much improved allowing closer sizing to street shoe), gradual break-in (to adjust to cushion), thin socks preferred. Tred wears a bit fast, but cushioning remains.

The Vomero might be Nike's replacement for the Tailwind, but it is clearly a different shoe. The toebox is quite wide and the cushioning provides a "sloppy" ride. Be careful if you are expecting the Vomero to be the new and improved version of the Tailwind.

The best Nike I've had in a long time. Considering I have been running in Nikes, off and on, for > 25 years, that is saying something. I have a classic Nike foot, on the narrow side of D, with a high arches. I am only 145 pounds, but like more cushioning than you get in the Pegasus for those 10 mile plus runs. The great thing about this show is the soft feel and the flexibility, which you usually don't get in the neutral plus category. Here's hoping Nike stays with this shoe for a while, without "improving" it into one I don't like.

Having a narrow foot, I have been a fan of Nike for quite some time. I was always a fan of the Pegasus shoe for the fit, last and value - that is until the '05 came out. Not being happy with the Pegasus '05 and hearing that the '06 isn't going to offer any change back towards the '04, I decided to try the Vomero. I have been incredibly happy with the comfort that the Vomero has provided and after a little more than 300 miles the support still feels pretty good although the tread has worn quite a bit and will probably replace with another pair. looking at some of the other comments, I do wonder whether or not the cushioning does take a little bit away from the forward propulsion, but as someone coming off of a broken leg, I had no problems with any of my joints from running in this shoe. I'm still a Nike fan - just not not a Pegasus fan anymore.

I've read most of the reviews of this shoe and if I was going to buy these based on some of the feedback I would feel a little confused. I've been running most of my life, although it was never in a competitive environment. I ran to stay in shape for soccer. I now do triathlons so I've gotten a little more serious about my running. I'm a shoe fanatic. I have about 6 different pairs all from different companies. Up until last October I had never owned a pair of running shoes from Nike. I tried on a pair of Zoom Elite 2's as a recommendation from a saleman at a running store and fell in love with them. I didn't think they could get any better until I tried on the Vomero's. Like any shoe, it's not going to feel the same for everybody. The Vomero's provide some stability but they are not made for people that need stability. If your knees hurt from wearing those shoes then you are one of those people. If you twisted your ankle from wearing these, it's not the shoes fault. I hav

I now have about 150 miles on these shoes. Excessive wear had been expressed as a concern by some individuals. The wear I am noting is what I normally expect in a shoe. I anticipate being able to put about 350-400 miles on these with out difficulty. I still find them to be a bit softer than I like, but I am adjusting well. Because they are soft, they are also quiet and I realized that I have to alert others that I am about to pass so I don't scare the daylights out of them.

Great shoe!!! A pleasure to run in. I have put a 100 miles on them so far. I love the combo of the zoom air and the nike free features. I disagree with the comment that the shoe encourages over-pronation. I feel that it allows natural pronation. If you over-pronate then the shoe is not for you, but if you have normal pronation or under-pronate then you will enjoy this shoe.

the air hayward is probably the model that most benefits from nike.s design learnings with the Free 5.0. the shoe is highly flexible and light, while also delivering solid cushioning and the right stability for a neutral runner. The flexibility is on par with the Mizuno WR8/9, which is hard to duplicate, while offering superior cushioning. the Seamless upper is very comfortable and allows my overly wide forefeet to fit, even though i wish they.d offer a wide. nike appears to intend this shoe as niche lightweight trainer, but it should really serve as their platform for all future training shoes. the pegasus and new vomero are just too tall, encouraging excess pronation. the height of the pegasus pushed nike to stiffen it, which works, but when the shoe wears out, it deflects too much, exagerating a healthy pronation motion into an unhealthy over-pronation. they.ve tried to address this wear tendency in the vomero but flaring the midsole, but it doesn.t work. in any case, the cushioning

I have always run in Nikes. I was addicted to the Pegasus until the Skylon's came out. However, due to the mileage I put on shoes I needed more cushioning. I bought this shoe, broke it in on a 6 mile run and immediately fell in love with it. I am 5'8", 168lbs. w/medium to high arches. This is the most comfortable shoe I have run in. I just completed the Tampa Gasparilla "PT Cruiser Challenge". I ran the 15K in a pair of Air Zoom Elites, but ran the 5K and the Full Marathon in this pair of shoes. Total comfort. Total support and cushioning. A little heavier than a racer, but for the long miles or extra cushioning this shoe is the BEST! It only took three days for me to recover and I was back out running a 10K in this pair of shoes. If you are a medium build - lower end of large build, with medium-high arches, and you want the ride of your life - snatch up a pair of Air Vomero's you will not be disappointed.

I'm all about cushioning and fit. The best shoes so far have been New balance 1060's and Asics Gel Landreth, but nike's have always fit my foot the best for some reason, and the Max Moto's while great fitting needed a bit more cushioning in the heel. But now the search is over. The Vomero's are the best shoe ever! God bless you Nike.
