Nike Breathe Cage II vs Nike Air Zoom Vapor V

Hi all...

Just a quick one for those who've tried the above shoes...

I've just bought a pair of Zoom Vapor V's, but I'm finding them quite harsh under foot - theres not too much cushioning going on...and I find my feet ache a fair bit after playing (they're the correct size before anyone asks...).

I'm thinking of grabbing a pair of Cage II's before they go out of stock everywhere, as I reckon the Max Air cushioning may be more what I'm after....

To those who've tried both - how do the Cage II's compare for cushioning?

Thanks in advance.

The Cage does have considerably more cushioning but i much prefer the vapors. They are lower to the ground and less clumpy than the cages. they're still a good shoe, just not as suited to me i guess

Yeah I completely agree with that. The Cages have considerable amounts of comfort. However, the Vapors generally take a little more time to break in, so that might be an issue as well.

Thanks for those comments so far guys...

I was thinking whether it might be just a case of breaking them in a little more, so hopefully they'll get better as I use them.

Yeah, I went with the Vapor's as I wanted something closer to the ground too (zoom air seemed ideal) - and they're great in that respect.

I would give them a little longer. I coach and used to wear them for 8 hour days, and they were fine, so stick with em!

Yeah thanks - I think I need to give them time to break-in a little more, as the rest of the shoe's characteristics are spot-on for me.

Yeah I'm a teaching pro, so they are always on my feet, lol. So it does take a little longer than most pairs of shoes, but once they are broken in, they are amazing!
