Winner anounced by email on the 31st July 2020
The Nike Air Zoom Vomero 15 is a huge update on the previous versions and there has been some serious work to improve the shoe all round. Because of the size of the cushion line from Nike the Vomero 15 is slightly firmer than previous versions to fit nicely in the range, (if you are after a very soft ride try the Nike Zoom X Invincible). The Vomero 15 is a solid high mileage training shoe in the traditional mould of shoes not the new ultra light, ultra soft versions. The rocker profile delivers a smooth heel to toe and and foam is cushioned but supportive to deliver an all round running shoe to soak up the miles.
A fantastic alternative to the ultra soft cushion shoes on the market. A durable, high mileage running shoe for the serious runner. Nike's traditional range of running shoes has a solid new flagship cushion shoe to deliver a brilliant everyday training shoe
A trusted favourite returns with a big facelift and massively improved. The Nike Air Zoom Vomero 15 is back with updated cushioning and a tough outsole for traction. Its look is inspired by the Vomero 5, combining a classic design with the innovation you want for a daily high mileage trainer.
The midsole has some clever engineering and is the big update to the shoe to take it away from the super soft shoes in the Nike range and make it a stand alone product that that delivers tradtionional feeling firm yet plush cushioning system.
A large Zoom Air bag in the forefoot delivers a great, springy toe off and is a big improvement on the full length air bag in previous version what created a slappy heel to toe transition. A Zoom X core foam is very soft and plush, wrapped in a SR-02 (firmer foam) carrier foam around the outside of the shoe to deliver stability and guideance from heel to toe.
The midsole is built with a rocker profile, with a curved heel and a large toe spring, used on many Nike shoes including the Nike React Infinity 2 with the distinctive heel fin for asthetics.
Longest run in the shoes was 18 miles, with no issues at all - in fact the slightly firm ride offers imporved support later in the run when your legs are tired. At pace, the shoe is fine, but there are obviously better shoes, although this is a very good 3 hour + marathon shoe for example.
Compared to many shoes on the market - the Nike Vomero 15 is plush and incredibly comfortable. There is a solid external heel counter wrapped with plush foam holds the heel firmly in place with no heel slippage. Limited overlays deliver a smooth fit that is suitable for many foot types and the lacing as a lot of adjustabilty across the top of the foot.
A great upper is massively let down by a pretty terrible tongue that is very very thin and goes against the plush natrure of the rest of the shoe. The thin tip to the tongue really is a let down as its folds over easily and is hard to straighen once creased.
A full coverage of rubber on the outsole is durable and while the lugs are not deep there is plenty grip and more than enough to handle some off road running. There is no compromise on durabily over weight on this shoe, it is built to last and be obvioulsy hard wearing.
A Nike Pegasus alternative with added plushness in the upper and a more solid heel counter. The ride is cushioned and slightly oversized, but firmer than many shoes out there - in a world where most shoes are going softer and softer, there are lots of runners out there looking for this type of shoe.
The older Vomeros were softer but Nike is transitioning runners to alterative shoes for this ride, and thank goodness they went old school here. I really enjoyed the firm cushioning, which worked well at speed but created guidance over longer distances. It is not cheap and the Pegasus 37 might offer better value.
