Nike Air Zoom Vomero 12 $140

The Zoom Vomero was introduced as a deluxe cushioned, neutral, high-mileage shoe. Round 12 keeps this focus front and center. The upper is much like Round 11: engineered mesh with support from welded internal layers.

The midfoot has a row of webbing straps connected by Flywire to add support and lacing options to the lace throat. The gusseted tongue keeps the foot comfortably in place. The reshaped midsole eliminates the heel crashpad, and a new longitudinal groove around the perimeter in the lower half directs the deflection of the sole. A firm outer shell encases a softer inner foam layer that surrounds the heel and forefoot Zoom Air units. The outersole features rounded pods, arranged like a two-lane road extending on the lateral perimeter around to the arch. The medial forefoot is similarly composed, but with three sections of pods separated by flex grooves. The combination of heel and forefoot pods offers both extra cushion and grip. The result? A deluxe cushioned, neutral, high-mileage shoe.

Testers: “Great cushion, really pampers the foot. Fits really well.”
