The Nike Vomero 17 will add some pep to your step on easy and moderate-paced runs. This high-cushioned everyday running shoe comes with a full-length ZoomX midsole for a super soft and energetic feel on every stride.
Designed to handle any mileage you throw at it, the Vomero 17 is a versatile running shoe that can pick up the pace when necessary. With a waffle-patterned, high-abrasion rubber outsole offers durability and traction so you can get after it day after day.
WHY PACERS CARRIES THESE SHOES:
It’s rare that we encounter a high-cushioned trainer that feels good at faster paces, but the Nike Vomero 17 is exactly that.
This running shoe is made to eat up miles on easy days and long runs, but thanks to ZoomX foam in the midsole, it feels at home at faster paces within those runs such as on fartlek and tempo runs.
Responsive Cushlon 3.0 foam adds support to the midsole for stable landings. This soft and responsive shoe is a great option for nearly and run.
Visually, the Nike Vomero 17 represents a significant upgrade to the bulky-looking Vomero 16. An updated engineered mesh upper offers a supportive and structured fit at a lighter weight.
The Vomero 17 removes the forefoot Zoom air unit that featured in previous iterations of the shoe in favor of a full-length ZoomX midsole. The result is a more plush and cushioned ride with the responsive feel of ZoomX foam. The shoe is rounded out with a layer of Cushlon 3.0 foam for added stability. The result is a soft, yet energetic ride.
