The upper features a slightly beefed-up saddle and, while actually paring back some of the rubbery thermoplastic, maintains the effective TPU heel counter. The Vomero uses an open mesh similar to that used in the previous versions. The Cushlon midsole is one of the best combinations of responsiveness and cushioning among the foam formulations industry-wide. This round adds a small, stabilizing midfoot crashpad while maintaining the Zoom Air ride and durable cushioning. The outersole continues the combination of blown rubber and longwearing BRS 1000 in the heel. The ride, fit, and performance earned the Vomero+ 5 the Best Neutral Shoe award for our summer review.
