Nothing but forward momentum. This is the simple summation I would use to describe this release of the Zoom Pegasus and the cumulative effort by Nike to improve this shoe over the last five years. Forward thinking design, forward thinking technology, and forward thinking performance. This is truly a runner’s shoe. I am not asserting that it is perfect, but that it really puts runners needs first and foremost and the payoff is overall impressive.
I said in an earlier review of the first version of this shoe, that the Zoom Pegasus Turbo may be the best shoe I have ever owned. That feeling has now been cemented. The exhaustive Research & Development that Nike puts into its products really shines in this release. Everything about this shoe is better than the previous release. I was really looking forward to running in these when spring rolled around. Then the world was told to stay indoors. To be fair, you could still go for runs in a generally safe manner; but, my overly cautious self kept my running to indoors. We actually got a treadmill to make it easy to maintain a fitness routine. I will have a review of that equipment in another post.
Nike released the 36th iteration of the Air Zoom Pegasus in June of 2019. Here is my review of the latest version of one my all time favorites. There is a reason this shoe is Nike’s all-time best-selling running shoe, and the tradition continues with these.
SUMMARY I often get worried when a brand I love starts to substantially expand their product portfolio. When the On Running brand first launched, they had a limited shoe range, each model perfect in almost every way. In a few short years, the shoe line has ballooned and unfortunately, quality has diminished. I was initially […]
It’s been a while since I have posted a shoe review. This delay was due to a couple of reasons. Prior to this purchase, I adopted the approach of using two shoes at a time which meant it took longer to reach 360 miles of use on each shoe. I also scaled back my total running volume and frequency. Regardless, I hit over 700 miles on my On Cloud X and Nike Zoom Pegasus 34’s that I reviewed previously. I loved the Pegasus line and decided to go with another pair of Nikes.
I have eclipsed 360 miles on my New Balance Minimus V20’s and that means it is time to pick up a new pair of running shoes. I have narrowed the field down to three choices. I am debating between the Under Armour SpeedForm RC Running Shoe, 2014 Nike Free 3.0 with FlyKnit, or the 2014 New Balance Minimus Zero V2. I have earlier experience with the Nike and New Balance shoes but the Under Armour are a gamble. Especially coming from the drama involving them and the US Olympic Speed Skating team at the Sochi Olympics. Though I blame most of that performance on the team and not Under Armour.
