The more responsive Nike Air Zoom Vomero 12 continues improvement to become one of the most popular running shoes among premium cushioned ones where Gel Nimbus 19 is still the reference despite its high price tag. With soft but plush cushioning it is a great choice for long distances and daily workouts.
It is not fair to name just one major change but several minor updates from its predecessor Vomero 11 that makes current one a great edition. The seamless upper is based on three different layers to improve breathability and features an internal bootie construction for superior comfort. Amount of thick Flywire cables has been reduced from 5 to 4 and are integrated with laces for a secure fit.
Midsole in Vomero 12 keeps double density with softer Lunar foam surrounded with firmer Cushlon in order to provide a smooth transition and great comfort. Decoupled Nike® Air Zoom units are as well presnt in both heel and forefoot providing a fair enough responsive ride for a heavy shoe. Regarding outsole, inner area changes its design looking for more cushioning while maintaining cross grooves in the forefoot for improved flexibility and quicker toe-off. Lateral crash rail has been slightly changed with updated rubber and heel zone uses a more durable one.
