Nike Air Zoom Vapor X

April 22, 2020
Air Zoom Vapor X

When we talk about the air zoom vapor we are talking about the roger federer model by excellence. The new air zoom vapor X are an improved update of its predecessors. With this new version nike has improved one of the weak points of this shoe, its durability, without neglecting the comfort and lightness that characterize this model.
An upper part with the improved Dynamic Fit system gives this model a very comfortable feeling when it comes to movement that requires greater mobility and speed.
A midsole that adds a Zoom Air unit to the rear of the heel that adds a good cushioning feeling and closeness to the tennis court. Polyurethane midfoot boot that helps stability and provides more agility in lateral movements and in great demand. Finally, a Phylon sole that provides extra cushioning.
This version adds traction on the perimeter of the outsole providing a good feeling of stability and greater speed in changes of pace and direction. We have 7.5 mm thickness in the areas of greatest demand for greater durability. It does not contain rubbers in the areas where there is least wear and tear, trying to squeeze the most of one of its best qualities, it´s lightness.

Pros

A very light and fast shoe when maneuvering on the court.Very comfortable, few can be compared to this model.Good feeling of stability in lateral movements.Many different colors depending on the player’s taste
Cons

Even having improved durability in this new version, it is still one of the weak points of this model.

Summary

In my opinion, it is a shoe for a type of club player, medium-high level or professional level looking for a feeling close to the court and whose game is characterized by quick and explosive movements but without being a player who needs a shoe that can withstand great wear and tear and more hours on the court than usual. Players like Roger Federer, Grigor Dimitrov or Felix Auger-aliassime use them. If your style of play and your footwork is similar to that of one of these players, then this shoe is the one for you.
