Heartbreak Boston GM Conor Cashin says this of the Pegasus, Nike's longest running shoe franchise: The Nike Pegasus is like your favorite flavor of ice cream: sure, you can go ahead and try some chunky, swirly, novelty, unicorn rainbow flavor & that'll do you fine on vacation or once in while. But when it matters, when that sweet sugary hit needs to count, you've got your go-to. It's so rich, so smooth, so creamy. Just right. If that flavor were a shoe, it'd be the Pegasus - the one that always delivers.
Now on its 37th edition, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus is redesigned but still running as smooth as ever. Built with a React Foam midsole and a Zoom Air Bag (tuned separately for men & women) in the forefoot, this shoe is more responsive and more durable than it's ever been.
Now that we've Conor's interpretation, let's hear the history, the heritage, & what makes this one the best yet (video below).
