I'm always buying the Nike VXT and / or the Air Monarch because they are the only shoe that has sufficient arch support for me in a style i like. both are very well padded around the ankle and the base of the foot. they are a like wearing fluffy clouds on your feet compared to a lot of other shoes that feel thin and flimsy. I love the fit and feel of the VXT especially.
this last pair(the ones you are looking at) do not have the same arch support as the previous model which had a silver swoosh on the side. There were really only 2 pairs of shoes that fit me right, out of the box, and now there is only 1. If i wear shoes lacking in arch support I get crippling pain in the knees and ankles. If I am going to have to start buying shoes+ additional arch supports I'm going to drop nike start geting the $50 American made New Balance shoes and you can keep your flat footed crap for the masses.
if you are like me, and buy these for the arch support, you need to jump over to the monarch, because it no longer exists in the VXT series.
