New Balance Vazee Pace Running Shoe Review
The New Balance Vazee Pace is designed for a stable ride and costs around £100
Created for runners who are quick off the mark, the New Balance Vazee Pace incorporates lightweight and responsive compounds to create a comfortable ride.
Fit: 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. The result is an incredibly snug and comfortable fit.
Feel: It is an incredibly light shoe at just 214 grams. The Pace has a highly flexible blown rubber forefoot which helps deflection and spring, without interruption to whatever pace applied. Highly responsive REVlite technology features in the midsole to give the shoe resilient properties and a midsole set-up which is geared toward responsiveness and speed.
Ride: The Pace has a deconstructed heel counter meant to contain, but not constrict and the bootie construction wraps the arch and allows the toes to splay as they push off the ground. The lightness is extremely noticeable over longer distances on both the treadmill and the road.
Weight: 214 grams (7.5 oz)
Offset: 6mm drop
Verdict: The Vazee Pace is a great option for runners looking for that edge to add to their speed and the shoe’s lightness makes it a fantastic option for longer distances and gruelling gym classes, too.
