The highly comfortable Nike Air Zoom Vomero 13 consolidates all changes unveiled in last release by american brand and offers some innovations to gain market share among premium neutral running shoes where Asics Gel Nimbus 20 still dominates despite high price tag. Although popular smaller sibling Pegasus 34 receives much more attention (and higher marketing budget from Nike), the Vomero 13 features soft and abundant cushioning with high quality materials becoming a great option for long distances and daily training.
Most interesting change compared to its predecessor Vomero 12 takes place in updated upper where multilayer mesh has been redesigned with plenty of holes forefoot to increase ventilation for improved breathability and more dense mid and rearfoot to provide snug and secure fit. FlyWire cables embracing midfoot are now wider and flat, mostly hidden between two layers and only eyelets which provide custom pressure from lacing system are visible from outside. Regarding visibility, not many reflective elements are present: just a couple of strips at the heel, brand name at the top of the well padded tongue and classical Nike logos on both sides.
Rest of Vomero 13 remains the same featuring double density with softer Lunar foam surrounded with firmer Cushlon in midsole to provide smooth transition and great comfort. Decoupled Nike® Air Zoom units are as well present in both heel and forefoot providing a fair enough responsive ride for a heavy shoe with such amount of cushioning. Regarding outsole, inner area keeps waffle design for enhanced comfort while maintaining cross grooves in the forefoot for improved flexibility and quicker toe-off. More durable rubber (BRS 1000) is used in both lateral crash rail and heel area to reduce wear.
