Available April 2017 – MSRP $100.00

The New Balance Vazee Summit made its debut in April 2016 and upon release, trail runners quickly realized that it was not just another minimal trail shoe. The combination of a lightweight design, protective cushioning, and sticky traction made it a versatile option for anything from daily training to racing on a variety of surfaces. Now with version 2 on its way, New Balance decided to utilize the same tooling for an unchanged underfoot feel while revamping the upper.

For enhanced comfort and fit, the Summit v2 features a new bootie-like construction for a soft, close to the skin feel. Paired with a Fantom Fit design for a seam free fit and Meta-Lock technology for snug midfoot lockdown, this upper should create an enhanced running experience on the trails.

In order to maintain the essence of the original, version 2 continues to utilize the same midsole and outsole design. The revlite midsole features a rock stop plate to provide responsive yet protective cushioning, and the versatile sticky rubber outsole provides just the right amount of traction to perform well on a variety of surfaces.
