New Balance 1600v2

5.00 (1 review)

From New Balance: Shave time off what you thought was your best in the New Balance 1600v2 racing flat. With premium traction for slick roads and a snug upper, this shoe is a fierce competitor for those who are in it to win.

Heel-to-toe drop: 8mm
Women’s Version Weight: 132 grams (4.6 oz)
Men’s Version Weight: 156 grams (5.5 oz)
Fast, light, and good traction

I love this shoe! One thing I really like about this racing flat is the tackiness on the forefoot. Racing in the Pacific Northwest means alot of racing on wet roads. Unlike other racing flats, I know that when I go to make a move or power up a hill in a race I’m not going to loose ground by slipping with this shoe. The shoe is also feather light (5 oz). I wear these shoes for the half marathon and shorter. I also use this shoes for track work. They are fantastic on the track but yet cushioned enough to handle a long warm-up and cool down on the roads.
