Nike Zoom Venomenon 5 Performance Review

We finally saw the Nike Zoom Venomenon 5 in July 2015. The Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon 5 looks absolutely incredible. The colorway of this version is as simple as you can get, but the details will make these a crowd pleaser , so just feast yours eyes. And let’s check it together today.

The Nike Zoom Venomenon 5, with many technologies contained, totally weighs 335g. Let’s have a look at the introduction of the official website first: The Nike Zoom Venomenon 5 cleverly combined the simple Hyperfuse design with the lightweight cushioning system. The excellent grip can make you play freely and can improve the accelerated performance at the same time. The upper breathability is also excellent. What’s more, combining the Phylon midsole with Nike Zoom air cushion, the Nike Zoom Venomenon 5 looks more perfect. With the excellent grip and wear resistance, the Nike Zoom Venomenon 5 is enough to control the outdoor courts.

If the Kobe series stands for Kobe’s gorgeous style in courts, then the Venomenon series stands for his technologies when attacking. After all, though the price is expensive, the quality is also excellent. At the same time, the Venomenon series are always popular in the public and has got many praises.


The upper used materials that are folding resistance .And the upper is not easy to be wrinkled. What’s more, I can say the breathability is pretty excellent .

Appearance: The Zoom Air +Crystal design with the color of ice blue looks so lively. And the silver LOGO in the shoe tongue and midsole make the Venomenon 5 more identified. In some ways, the Venomenon 5 is a bit like the 4th version. The shoes used the popular Lowploy style which consisted of triangular and gradient colors .In general, the appearance can’t disappoint you.



The design of Venomenon 5 is seriously considered, and the feeling of wrapping is also good.


The materials used in the upper ensure powerful breathability that is also one of the advantages of Venomenon 5. You will feel comfortable even if in winter, and I am sure it can perform better in summer.


Although the sneakers have ZOOM, the whole performance is not very satisfying . Possibly,  the reason is that the position of Zoom Air is different from before.


In my view, the supporting of Venomenon 5 is a big shortcoming . The soft upper and low-cut design directly reduce the supporting. So the supporting in ankles is really concerning.

Wear feelings.

The air cushion directly increases the shoes’ gravity center. Though it performed not very good, the wear resistance is worse than expected, the bending performance is quick good which is good for start-up.






Though the shoes do have some shortcomings, the whole is quick satisfying. In short, such a pair of shoes, pricing 949, is very cost effective. And I am sure it can’t make you disappointed.
