"Okay so I've been a fan of New Balance for a couple years. As you can see I run track, and the first spike I bought from New Balance was the SD200v1. That is a low top spike and is very lightweight. The Vazee Sigma is a different spike from that and that isn't a bad thing. For one Sigma uses stronger materials so I'm not worried about my spikes wearing down too much like I did with the SD200v1 (or I’m gonna call it the SD1 for now on). So while the materials are stronger they are less comfortable. That's the give and take and I personally learned that I like comfort more than durability. If you have that sort of preference you might not like that. It’s not painful but it’s not the most comfort in any form or fashion. So that’s one negative I have for it. The lacing system I personally liked and I would recommend they keep in future models, that being said the upper sock-like net they have, messes things up and doesn’t secure my whole foot. So the good of the boa (think I’m spelling that right) system is negated by the upper. The strap overlay is a nice touch but with my foot moving it doesn’t help me out much. That’s unfortunate. So far it sounds like I’m being negative and I’m not trying to be, this is a very good shoe. Is it $150 worth? That’s for you to decide. Personally I got it off Amazon for $120 and think that’s a fair price. It’s the same price I paid for the SD1s when they came out and those are on sale nowadays. I would recommend this shoe to people who are running in events like the 55m, 60m, and/or 100m dash. The 200m you could maybe get away with even with the shoes’ lack of ankle security, but any distance beyond that is pushing it for sure. I’m going to go back to SD1s because I prefer feeling light of my feet but that doesn’t make the Vazee Sigma a bad spike, just not for me."
