I have just heard from Nike that they are unleashing the 31st edition of the Pegasus on the running public, after developing the product with insights from elite athletes including Mo Farah, Galen Rupp and Rita Jeptoo – note they didn’t ask me! As a result, Nike believe they have been able to construct their fastest, most responsive collection of Air Zoom running shoes yet and I am going to be testing a pair soon.
The blurb that I have been sent sounds promising:
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31: A neutral running shoe for training day in and day out, the new Pegasus feels faster and more responsive than any model in its impressive 31-year heritage. The latest Pegasus retains key features loved by loyal Pegasus runners – heel Zoom Air for a cushioned ride, a breathable upper and excellent fit – and introduces enhancements like a contoured last for streamlined fit, dropped offset (10 millimeters) for a more natural stance and an engineered midfoot saddle for targeted structure and support.
Well, I have history with the Pegasus, so I will reserve judgement, but if the shoe is good enough for Farah and Rupp, then I guess it’ll be good enough for me! Stay tuned for a review as soon as I get my hands on the pair that I have been told are on their way to me.
In the mean time, here is a picture to whet your appetite!
