I have been a New Balance customer for ten years. It all started from the discounted pair I bought when I started running, which was a funky gold pair of New Balance 749. I tried a couple of direct competitors in between but I had to size up to fit my overpronating duck-wide feet. Those pairs didn’t last either. So, I kept on coming back to New Balance and never looked back.
On Christmas of 2016, I badly needed a lightweight stability running shoes to replace my pair of 870v4 for my upcoming races. Unfortunately, 870v4 didn’t meet my expectations. So, I bought a black and pink pair of New Balance Vazee Prism at New Balance Bonifacio High Street boutique with a 40% discount but, it took me a few months before I started wearing it.
New Balance Vazee Prism is a fairly new line in New Balance performance running shoes at the time because they used model names instead of model numbers. Also, the use of Full EVA (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate) Strobel board for all-day comfort was quite innovative.
