Global athletics and apparel brand, New Balance have seen great things over the years. Their classic style has become the unostentatious choice of the decade when it comes to urban chic. With the Vazee Pace, New Balance have more than a few tricks up their sleeves. We got to road test their epic, performance road running shoes.
Out of the box, these lightweight sneaker have a striking design. The bright and bold sole contrasts nicely with the black upper. The trainers are designed for runners seeking an inherently stable and reliable ride.
Created for runners with a quick pace, the Vazee Pace incorporates lightweight and responsive compounds to create a ride unmatched in the performance running footwear market.
Highly responsive REVlite technology features in the midsole to give the Vazee Pace resilient properties and a midsole set-up which is geared toward responsiveness and speed. Engineered on the VL-6 last with a noticeably visible toe spring, this innovative running shoe has a highly flexible blown rubber forefoot which helps deflection and spring, without interruption to whatever pace applied.
The New Balance design team studied the human foot at various speeds to create a second-skin like fit in the upper to compliment the unique under-foot experience the Vazee Pace provides. A deconstructed heel counter meant to contain, but not constrict, contributes to a no-fuss upper, with a bootie construction and material make-up that wraps the arch and allows the toes to splay as they push off the ground.
The Vazee Pace takes its inspiration from Team New Balance athletes, such as World Champion Jenny Simpson and reigning World Champion triathlete Mirinda Carfrae.
The Vazee Pace are by far our favourite New Balance performance running line-up, and are quickly becoming the shoe of choice for runners covering many miles, with the aim always being to achieve their goals and find their Vazee moment.
The Vazee Pace is now available through www.newbalance.co.uk for RRP £100.
