"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 a 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. "
