New Balance Vazee Summit Review

Posted on March 28, 2016 in Gear Running Shoes

A favorite shoe feature here at Running Warehouse is the “lace garage”, the stretch mesh pocket located at the top of the tongue of some shoes. Lace garages are most commonly found on trail shoes. Reason being, you don’t want your laces catching on something. Beyond the practical nature of keeping shoelaces secured and you […]
