New Balance Vazee Pace 2
The only thing wrong with the first iteration of this minimalist shoe was the bafflingly long laces, which required triple knotting. With that fixed, NB has changed very little else with this update. It’s still fast and responsive but with enough of a heel drop that newcomers to speed training or short race shoes won’t feel intimidated. The semi-bootie construction ensures a snug fit and the forefoot has been enhanced with softer rubber for added bounce. Bottom line A slim, secure speedster that will even suit those new to picking up the pace.
