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.

Moreover, it is responsible for the efficient toe-offs of the shoe and contributes to its overall durability.

It serves as the underfoot cushioning of the shoe. It also evens out the pressure beneath the contours of the foot. 

Breathable comfort of the Vazee Verge

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.

I race distances between 800 meters and 10K whether it be on the track, the roads, or on cross country courses. My typical training consists of easy days, long days, workouts (fartleks, tempos, interval training, etc.). My typical training paces range from 7’30 a mile on easy days to sub-5 minutes a mile on fast interval days, and with many paces in between. I run anywhere from 40-60 miles a week. My personal bests are 2:00 for 800m, 4:30 for 1600m, 9:50 for 3200m, 15:57 for 5K, and 34:10 for 10K.
