All Of The Cool Ways Nike Has Updated Its Air Zoom Pegasus 35
The veteran runs better than ever.
The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus has been around for 35 years, would you believe it? And when a performance shoe goes such a distance, repped all the while by some of the world's best runners, you know it's a winner.
Still, if you'd been running for 35 years straight, you'd probably need a new leg.
Nike thought it high time to update the veteran runner once again, this time enlisting British long-distance champion and Pegasus mega-fan Mo Farah to provide his expert insight. Though the mesh cut-and-sew upper and part foam, part air midsole remains the same, here's what's new.
The notched tongue makes it easier to slip on and off
The bottom eyelet has been moved to open up and provide flex in the foot
On Farah's recommendation, the collar has been directed away from the Achilles for added comfort
The fast and modern-looking beveled heel helps with touchdown
It now features a full-length airbag, inspired by the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4%, to offer responsive cushioning and improved transition and flexibility
The women's silhouette was specifically tuned for the female foot with a slightly softer Cushlon foam
The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 has just dropped at Nike and select retailers.
