Just brought a pair of Cumulus 13 having spent the last three years running in Nike's Vomero.
I found the heel is held well and the cut of the shoe around the ankle is low so unlikely to cause any irritation there. The cut of the shoe around the midfoot is snug but not too tight, just holds the foot nicely with more room in the toebox.

Really like this shoe, can't wait to race in it and see how it fares. It'll take something special to make me change from this shoe.
