Men’s New Balance Vazee Pace

The Vazee Pace, another award-winning lightweight trainer, continues New Balance’s transition in image from “shoes for chubby white guys” (thanks, SNL) to a leader in the fast, performance category. Similar in shape to the Fresh Foam Zante, with a high arch and strong upturn in the toe, the Vazee Pace uses a different midsole material—Revlite—to provide a firmer, bouncier ride. The outsole is split into multiple pads, with durable carbon rubber under the heel and toe, and responsive blown rubber under the ball. The upper, a simple mesh with thin welded overlays for support, holds the foot nicely without binding anywhere. Testers praised the balance between weight and cushioning

“The Vazee Pace has the weight of a racing flat combined with the durability of a long-run trainer. Very comfortable ride with surprisingly ample cushioning. This shoe is built for speed and built to last, showing little wear after more than 200 miles.”
