Nike Air Zoom Vomero 10 Review
Nike's latest Vomero. Nike Air Zoom Vomero 10.
Nike loves to refresh its lineup every year. This year is no different; Nike introduced Vomero 10 in the first quarter of 2015. The Vomero 10 is the tenth shoe in the lineup. Vomero 9 was brilliant, let us see what changes Nike introduced into the Vomero 10. Is the Vomero 10 just another Vomero or is it something more.
Heel height: 31mm
Toe height: 19mm
Heel-to-toe drop: 12mm
Nike Air Zoom Vomero 10 is available in exciting colorways. The regular Vomero 10 has come in ten colorways. One thing is certain; people will definitely turn their heads. Nike is also offering the shoe in various width options (Narrow, regular, wide and extra wide). If you have wide feet, this is definitely a plus. This neutral road running shoe falls in the lightweight category for a size 9 men’s shoe weighs 286g. The shoe is true to its size and the fit is excellent.
Like many other running shoes by Nike, the Vomero 10 also features a Flymesh upper. This breathable material offers amazing fit along with great support. Experience cool feet, thanks to the remarkable breathability levels of the shoe. Seamless construction makes sure that there is minimal irritation.
Strategically placed Dynamic Flywire cables on the upper offer unmatched stability. This is why the shoe weighs just 286g. Flywire cables offer unparalleled strength-to-weight ratio. Looking closer, you will find a sock liner in the underfoot area. This provides additional comfort and cushioning. An external chassis covers the entire heel area. Nike calls it as FitFrame and it offers added heel support.
In the midsole, we find the Zoom Air unit. These low-profile air pockets offer responsive cushioning. Like Nike’s LunarGlide 7, the Air Zoom Vomero 10 also features a Lunarlon cushioning unit and promotes a super responsive ride. The material is stiff in the rearfoot area and soft in the forefoot area. Along with the great cushioning, Lunarlon cushioning unit helps in better heel-to-toe transition. To make things even better, Nike also introduced Cushlon foam into the heel area. Get ready to experience mind-blogging cushioning and stability with this shoe.
The outsole is made of environmentally preferred BRS 1000 Carbon rubber (Industry standard). This material offers incredible traction on multiple surfaces. Like Nike’s Air Max 2015, we see gender specific Flex Grooves on the outsole. This should offer smooth ride along with enhanced flexibility. You will also experience enhanced gait efficiency. For better heel-to-toe transition, Nike also placed a Rubber Crash Rail on the lateral side of the shoe. A pressure-mapped unique patterned outsole should offer an efficient and a stable ride.
Overall, Nike Air Zoom Vomero 10 is a great neutral running shoe. This shoe has great cushioning, supreme fit and amazing stability. If the Vomero 10 falls within your budget, do go for it without any second thoughts.
