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.
