- New Balance adds another fantastic shoe in the Vazee collection of shoes in the Breathe. As the name suggests, it is made of an open mesh that delivers maximum breathability in the most arid conditions. Running in very hot temperatures is not as daunting because of the wide, open holes of the mesh and the Heat Foil, which keeps off heat away from the foot.
- A new foam in the Rapid Rebound keeps every run dynamic in a lightweight package. The combination of superior breathability and an energizing run is something that will automatically catch the attention of most runners.
New Balance offers a locked in feel in the heel and midfoot with just a slightly wider forefoot. This is what most runners look for in their running shoes as it gives that racing shoe-type feel, but with still enough room for the toes to wiggle. Medium is the available width of this shoe. Sizing is on the money in this shoe with options 7 to 17 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s.
The full rubber outsole is covered with blown rubber in the forefoot for better traction. New Balance uses huge forefoot grooves for enhanced flexibility. The same outsole configuration is also used in the Vazee Breathe 2.
A Rapid Rebound technology makes running more responsive. As it runs the whole length of the shoe, it also creates a more efficient movement from the heel to the toes. New Balance’s innovative Heat Foil helps with the maximum breathability as it deflects the heat from paved surfaces or light trail.
The upper is made of open, synthetic mesh. It has huge holes that deliver over the top breathability. To hold the midfoot down, a synthetic rib cage that is perforated, secures the area in comfort. There is substantial padding in the ankle collar and tongue for optimal comfort while flat laces ties the runner’s most comfortable fit.
