The Zoom Vomero+ 5 includes the fabled Nike Zoom Units that its predecessors have used to put the running world on its ear.
Nike Zoom Units are super lightweight, thin, responsive cushions strategically placed in the forefoot and heel of the Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5. The ultra thin cushioning gives the Zoom Vomero+ 5 a “low rider” sensation. The close to the ground feel provides maximum maneuverability at a highly aggressive level.
New to the latest model is the breathable mesh upper portion of the shoe. This new “airy” mesh includes overlays to lock down the foot and provides a stable, sound environment for training.
These synthetic overlays do not contain one single stitch. Honestly, I hate when the nylon stitches come out after the 26th mile and I am in full sprint heading for a 302nd place finish!
An external heel wrap that includes the Zoom Air cushioning holds the heel snug and prevents slippage that can lead to blisters. The plush sock-like inner puts a smile on every runners face.
Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 has a further segmented crash pad than its predecessors. The segments in the crash pad dampen strike force impact, and improve shoe resiliency while not infringing upon the flexibility needed for speed. Flex grooves also appear on the outsole to ensure flawless heel to toe transition.
BRS 1000 carbon rubber outer soles make the Zoom Vomero+ 5 a long lasting road companion. The extra blown rubber bottom gives the Vomero+ 5 wearer an extra bounce in their step while providing enough traction to take them for a ride on any course.
Nike+ was created for runners who enjoy recording and monitoring each step they take towards achieving their fitness goals.
You simply place the sensor under the Nike+ ready sock liner and start moving and down the track. Information is transmitted wirelessly to the receiving device of your choice. Nike+ sensors calculate a runners pace, distance and calories burned.
Is Nike Zoom Vomero 5 The Best Running Shoe For Me?
From expert marathoner to beginning shedder of pounds, you will find Nike+ to be a useful tool for achieving those lofty goals you are striving for.
Most Nike Vomero+ 5 wearers will tell you they enjoy a plush, smooth, low to the ground ride while running.
On the opposing side, a handful of malcontents have reported loss of cushion resilience after about 300 miles of hard training. For a neutral shoe with maximum cushion, albeit slightly heavier, be sure to check out the Nike Air Max Moto 8.
Runners experiencing knee pain and shin splints have pointed to their Vomero+ 5’s as the cure. One runner went as far as to state that he actually uses his calve muscles now that he has made the jump to Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5.
If you would appreciate this type of relief in your running shoe, snag yourself a pair of the latest Zoom Vomero 5’s from Nike.
