Nike Vomero+ 5 $130

Nike Vomero+ 5 $130
Nike has successfully dialed in the Bowerman line, which is epitomized by the Vomero. Version 5 distills the essence of the shoe—great cushioning, midfoot support, and forefoot flexibility—by making as few adjustments as possible.

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.

Nike Zoom Streak XC 2 $70

Nike Zoom Streak XC 2 $70
The Zoom XC may be the most versatile of the competition shoes that bear the Swoosh.

A hybrid of sorts, it draws from a number of models. The upper is very open mesh with a midfoot band of synthetic suede to shore up the fit (you may have seen it in Nike’s steeplechase model). The midsole is a new foam formulation called Cushlon LT, a lightweight version of the resilient foam in the Bowerman line. The outersole is a mini-waffle pattern, a tip of the hat to its use for cross country, as well as on the track and the roads. The low profile, great fit, and light feel are enhanced by the bargain price; in fact, it could be called the bargain champion of this review. The Zoom Streak XC 2 is well placed in the versatility department, working almost equally well on the track, roads, and cross country.

  • Sizes: men 4–13,14,15 (unisex)
  • Weight: 6.0 oz. (men’s 11)
  • Shape: semi-curved
  • Fit: snug heel, close forefoot
  • For: medium- to high-arched feet with neutral biomechanics
  • Range: efficient runners - up to 25K; heavy strikers - up to 15K or just beyond

Nike Zoom Waffle XC/Waffle Racer VII & Zoom Jana Star XC/

Nike Zoom Waffle XC/Waffle Racer VII & Zoom Jana Star XC/
The Waffle Racer pioneered the track spike/racer/cross country hybrid. Version VII upgrades a few features while maintaining its most effective components.

The midsole/outersole is unchanged with a four-nibbed waffle tread and a co-molded shank that works equally on tracks, hills, and dales. The upper’s no-sew technology enhances the support with a smooth interior and, though it gains a few grams in the process, it’s a worthwhile trade-off as the full rand and overlays reinforce the mesh throughout. The fit is unchanged—it’s close—but with good curvature and snugness to match the racing foot. The matching lasts of the spiked (Zoom Waffle XC) and spikeless models, the gender specificity of the Jana and Waffle Racer, and broadest cross country size range in the industry offer runners and teams a wide variety of cross country options.

 

  • Spike $55/Spikeless $45
  • Sizes: men 1–13,14,15; women 5–12
  • Weight: (men’s 11) 7.4 oz. spike, 6.8 oz. spikeless; (women’s 8) 6.5 oz. spike, 5.9 oz. spikeless    
  • Fit: snug heel, close forefoot
