From time to time, there are running shoes which make an immediate impact. The Nike Air Zoom Vomero 14 are among those rare shoes. The shoes are practically one of the best-looking designs on the market, not only from Nike. It is hard to match their aesthetics in the high cushion world.
The Nike Vaporfly 4% Flyknit shoes are among the manufacturer’s finest. While they are expensive, they are certainly one of the leading names on the market for running performance. Its name is actually based on the estimated 4% running improvement they come with for the average runner. This was calculated with a scientific approach and is Nike’s promise to those who are willing to invest in the shoes.
With a premium profile, the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo is worth a look for any runner. Nike is actually very proud of the latest 35th release of the shoes. In fact, it has gone to some lengths to reach the final product. During testing, the shoes offer impressive speeds. Runners can expect the type of speed which is often associated to near own record running abilities. This has been achieved by working with elite runners in Kenya. Since Kenyans have such an impressive running tradition, there is a lot to be learned in their community.

The higher ride height is characteristic and it’s based on the thick React cushioning as well as on the carbon fiber plate insertion.
Runners expect many things from the Nike Air Zoom Structure 22. However, it seems the series is stuck in time. The outsole and the midsole do not do justice to the shoes. Of course, the first miles are fine as everybody things break in is required. But after a few miles, runners slowly start to realize break-in is not coming. The shoes feel stiff and unresponsive at times.
