~~Boston, MA - December 2015 – This July, Boston-based New Balance will update the successful Vazee Pace with the new and improved Vazee Pace v2. An award winning, go-to style for some of Team New Balance’s fastest athletes, the Vazee Pace v2 always has speed in mind. The Vazee Pace v2 will launch in July 2016 with the suggested retail price of $109.95.

Known for its snappy, quick feel and responsive ride the Vazee Pace v2 delivers improvements to durability with the same cherished fit. Championed by a remarkably responsive REVlite midsole for a lightweight and responsive ride, the Vazee Pace v2 features slightly more blown rubber coverage in the forefoot for enhanced longevity. Continuing on the VL-6 last, runners can enjoy the familiar toe spring that provided the same aggressive feel and quick turnover from the award-winning predecessor.

The Vazee Pace v2 continues to up the ante with a fully reimagined upper built for style and speed. A breathable air mesh forefoot with no-sew overlays is designed for your toes to splay freely at toe off, while your arch is held securely through a stylish woven textile at midstance. The sleek bootie construction continues to provide a “second-skin” and perfectly snug feel to the upper.

The Vazee Pace v2 aspires to be the shoe of choice for discerning speed seekers once again, or for anyone who is looking to pick up the pace and unleash their Vazee.
