Editor’s Notes: When the Air Vomero first dropped in 2007, it debuted a new type of foam, which was said by Nike to be “softer and more responsive than any material available at the time.” The Zoom Vomero 5 took things to a new level years later when it separated the Zoom Air cushioning in the heel and forefoot.
A decade on, Samuel Ross and his label A-COLD-WALL* brought back the popular runner, albeit with a slight modification: a protruding heel counter, which split opinion online and even prompted some sneakerheads to cut it off.
Now NikeLab is releasing a heel counter-less Zoom Vomero 5 in two monochromatic colorways. The in-house Zoom Vomero 5 has a mixed-material leather and canvas construction and is rounded out with reflective detailing. Tonal laces accompany each colorway, while the original Cushlon and Zoom tooling remain the same.
Both colorways drop in Europe tomorrow, February 1, for €150/£130 (approximately $170). There's no word yet on a North American release, but stay tuned for updates.
