Men's NEW BALANCE® VAZEE SUMMIT v2 :: If you see hills and rocks as an invitation, then the Men's New Balance Vazee Summit v2 trail shoe is for you! Built light and aggressive, your full-length REVlite midsole cushions crash landings and provides snappy toe-offs while the 3/4 length Rock Stop Plate shields feet from stones for a smooth ride. Feel right at home with a comfy, sock-like fit that locks down your midfoot in a flexible, no-sew upper. Run confident in your Vazee Summit v2 trail shoe with durable multi-directional lugs providing grip and strength on all your climbs and descents.
I've only put about 12 miles on these so far but they feel pretty good. They aren't as armored on the bottom as the Inov-8 212s or 290s but they fit my feet a lot better. I usually wear a Wolverine 10 extra wide pair of steel toed boots, or a pair of New Balance 880 V7 size 10D running shoes but in these trail running shoes I had to get a 10.5D. I did have to get some Mudgear socks that are slightly compressing on my feet, while at the same time being pretty thin to make these fit just right.
The traction even in mud is incredible and they dry pretty quickly even when you run through shallow streams.
I'm training to run a Spartan Trifecta and hoping that these will serve me well.
Be warned: this shoe runs very small.
Shoes are way too small. I bought these for my son and he's a consistent size 12. These shoes are so small, he tried to wear them for a run and had to turn back within three minutes of running. I need to return them - gotta find the receipt first.
Racy trail shoes.
The New Balance Vazee Summit v2 is my new go to trail shoe. It fits like a glove, rides low and nimble over hard pack and rocks. The comfort is really good for such a light shoe, even if you are closing in on Clydesdale weight.
i would definitely buy again!
running on all surfaces and feels especially good on trail! very light weight with a roomy toe box. would definitely recommend to a friend! i hope New Balance doesn't rush to change this version any time soon!!!
Go to trail shoe
The same cushioning & protection as the Summit v1. V2 has improve stability for the ankle due to a thick overlay on the sides from the heel o the start of the laces. Overall a great tril shoe.
well worth the money
Very comfortable and light. I really enjoy the tread pattern. I use them on MTB rides as well and are even better for that
Decent shoe. A little bit light on cushion.
Like the shoe but a little less cushion than I normally like. If you like less cushion you may like it more than I do.
The future of sneakers for comfort and fit.. This model..Not for the roads
Love the shoe.
Really comfortable. Good shoe.
