The Concept behind the Pegasus
It takes more than speed and endurance to earn your wings. Earning your wings is recognizing that the run never ends. Earning your wings means living the journey. And that journey is the spirit of the Nike Air Pegasus+ 30.
Thirty years in the making, the Nike Air Pegasus is a proven icon. Every shoe a milestone that’s true to its athlete. The Nike Air Pegasus+ 30 takes trusted craftsmanship and pushes it further.
Over the years, Nike’s commitment to detail has helped the Pegasus stand the rigors of elite training. The kind of training that carried Sheila Reid to the 2012 finals in London, or that pushed Mo Farah to 3 World Championships. The Pegasus+ 30 carries the legacy that has consistently supported world-class competitors in taking it to the next level. A history of achievement meets a new level of precision.
“Pegasus is one of my favorite shoes,” says world champion distance runner Mo Farah, who has trained in the Nike Air Pegasus for much of his career. “It’s really important to have a training shoe that’s very well cushioned, as light as possible, but gives you that support you need.”
Inside The Pegasus
Now, the new Air Pegasus+ 30 builds on its strong heritage with modern technology in the lightest edition yet.
For 30 years, the shoe has been a running staple, beloved for Nike Zoom cushioning,( a cradle-like fit) and its light weight. While the Pegasus model has evolved over time, it always stays true to its roots, consistently delivering the reliable qualities runners have come to expect.
Improvements focus on three fit zones: forefoot, midfoot and heel. Strategically-placed no-sew overlays lend a seamless interior and ultra-lightweight feel. Nike engineered mesh provides targeted support and breathability, and the Nike Zoom unit in the heel offers springy, responsive cushioning. The internal heel counter securely wraps the back of the foot.
Environmentally-preferred rubber in the waffle outsole is durable and provides great multi-surface traction. Precisely-placed flex grooves — deeper along the lateral side and more shallow on the medial side — promote a natural, efficient stride.
The Pegasus franchise has long been known for its secure fit. The Nike Air Pegasus+ 30 uses a Fitsole sockliner to help conform to the shape of the foot. A reflective skin under the upper helps keep runners visible in low-light conditions.
After 30 years, the Pegasus has covered millions of miles. The Nike Air Pegasus+ 30 gives flight to the next generation on a new journey. The Nike Air Pegasus+ 30 is the next phase in a three-decade journey. Take the next step. Earn your wings.
