Nike Pegasus - Profile

February 28, 2014

The Nike Pegasus comes with a heritage like no other running shoe; spanning the thirty years that its current model, the +30, suggests. The shoe originally made its name by providing ample cushioning on what was a very lightweight trainer, to a level of expertise that simply hadn't been done; characteristics which continue to remain a fundamental aspect of any Pegasus shoe.

"How do you improve on a shoe with such heritage?" Asks Nike senior footwear designer, Mike Miner. "Well, we've really dialled in the details in three zones; the heel, the midfoot and the forefoot. We've designed each zone to give you either structure, breathability, or a lightweight fit."


So what exactly are we looking at in the Pegasus +30?

Support and Ventilation

Ultra-light engineered mesh on the upper adds support and ventilation while reducing weight. Unlike the Nike Air Pegasus+ 29, this version features strategically placed no-sew overlays throughout to offer even more support and create a seamless, ultra-comfortable interior.

Responsive Cushioning

A Nike Zoom unit in the heel delivers low-profile, responsive cushioning. Premium Cushlon foam provides soft, springy and resilient cushioning.

Impact Absorption

Sidewall cuts on the midsole absorb impact for softer landings and smoother transitions on your run.

As well as

-Midfoot saddle with mesh and no-sew overlays for ventilation and a secure fit

-Internal heel counter wraps the heel for a snug fit

-Environmentally preferred rubber Waffle outsole for durability and multi-surface traction

-Flex grooves for a natural, efficient stride


"...the simplicities of what a runner needs," says Mike Miner, "that's what make it beautiful."

And rest assured we do of course practice what we preach...shot on location in The Tristore office this morning!
