Nike Vomero 15 vs 14: Should I upgrade? 

The most prominent updates featured by the Air Zoom Vomero 15 are the new ZoomX midsole, re-engineered upper, and added rubber on the outsole. Here are some of the experts' thoughts on these changes: 

What got better

  • Plusher wrap 
  • Stable ride 
  • Better grip 

What got worse

  • Stiffer underfoot feel 
  • Less in-shoe ventilation 

To cut to the chase, only upgrade to the Vomero 15 if you want a softer version of the Vomero 14's upper with a better heel lock. If you're looking for daily trainers with better cushioning, the more fitting options are the Asics GlideRide and the Saucony Endorphin Shift.
