Nike Voremo 4 Running Shoes: Tangible Boing

Posted by on May 31, 2009 in Gear |

I just completed my first run in the new Nike Voremo 4 running shoes and all I have to say is, “BOING!”  These shoes are set up with Nike’s top of the line cushioning material and you can feel the difference.  Having just retired my 2008 Air Pegasus, I noticed a difference immediately.  Now that may just be the sensation of going from older shoes to new ones, but the improvements that I can feel are a nice snug fit through the midsole, a more...
