Profile of the New Balance Vazee Verge
Use - Coming from a line of reliable running spikes, the Vazee Verge from New Balance is best for sprints and short distance running events in track and field. These races can range from 100 meters to 400 meters.
Spike Type - Since the Vazee Verge is built to perform on track or rubber surfaces, the spikes that go along with it are pyramid spikes. These are 3/16 inch in diameter in order to optimize surface grip and traction, heightening the speed and slippage prevention of the athlete.
Spike Plate - Just like the spike plate material of the Adidas Distancestar, it also has a TPU plate. It is also dubbed as a “high response TPU plate” that is responsible for the shoe’s traction and durability while employing minimal weight.
To maintain the highly acclaimed reputation of the Vazee series from New Balance, the Vazee Verge has incorporated some features that are worth noting. One of these is the FantomFit technology that secures lightweight support and fit.
The high response TPU plate of the shoe, meanwhile, is responsible for keeping torsional rigidity, as well as supplementing traction to the track spike.
Size and fit
Providing a secure wrap around the foot is the open mesh upper of the shoe. Behind the comfortable and secure fit provided by the upper material of the Vazee Verge is the FantomFit technology. It basically offers a sock-like fit for the foot.
The New Balance Vazee Verge is available in standard sizing measurement for both men and women. You can get a pair of these track spikes using your usual size preference.
The high response TPU plate of the New Balance Vazee Verge is intended for maximum surface grip and traction—regardless of condition. Moreover, it is responsible for the efficient toe-offs of the shoe and contributes to its overall durability.
Found in the midsole of the Vazee Verge is a glued down sockliner. It serves as the underfoot cushioning of the shoe. It also evens out the pressure beneath the contours of the foot.
To give the track spike a well-ventilated foot chamber, an open mesh acts as its outer coverage. It has a number of perforations that permit air circulation. Further, it also wraps the foot securely, adapting to the natural contours of the foot.
Integrated into the upper design of the Vazee Verge is New Balance’s renowned technology—FantomFit. It involves two materials that are combined through a no-sew process to provide an irritation-free experience while providing ultra-lightweight support and fit.
