Nike Air Zoom Vomero +4

Built on the same lasts as its predecessors, new strategically placed overlays and extended cash pad from heel through midfoot, the new comfort fit and unbeatable comfort of the Nike Air Zoom Vomero 4 will surely be a success.

MSRP : US$130
Weight : 12.4 oz / 351 gm
Predecessor : Vomero 3
Features : Gender Specific, Zoom Air®, Cushlon™ midsole, EVA strobel, BRS 1000™, Duralon™, Waffle Fill™

Recommended for runners looking for a light weight and highly cushioned shoe.
History : Vomero 4 ('09), Vomero 3 ('08), Vomero 2~1

BRS 1000™ : A highly durable carbon rubber we invented for use in outsoles. BRS stands for Blue Ribbon Sports, which was our name before we came up with Nike. The tie-in? Both BRS and Nike last ... and last...

Cushlon® : Cradles the foot for support and plush, resilient cushioning.

Duralon® : Blown rubber helps reduce weight and increases responsiveness.

Max Air® : It's just what it sounds like: maximum cushioning. Through blow-molding, more pressurized gas can be put inside even bigger air bags. The bigger the Air-Sole unit, the less traditional cushioning material is needed. More cushioning, less weight. You do the math.

Nike + : A pocket under the sockliner for secure placement of Nike+ sensor. Connected to iPod nano, information on time, distance, calories burned and pace is stored on iPod and displayed on the screen; real-time audible feedback also is provided through headphones.

Waffle® : Waffle Fill and Waffle outsole configurations provide good traction.

Zoom Air® : Two layers of nylon fabric, joined by densely packed fibers, are sealed inside polyurethane. The unit is inflated; pushing apart the fabric and creating tension on the fibers. What does that mean? I don't know, but the result is a low-to-the-ground, hyper-responsive speed cushioning you can feel. And it does it in less space than other Air-Sole units.

Best shoe I've ever worn - just bought pair #5 - not because the ones I have are wearing out, just because I've heard there will be a few changes with the 5th version next year.
