Nike Air Pegasus 35
Nike is, no doubt, one of the most well-recognized names in the sports apparel industry and that is for a good reason. Year after year, the company puts out technologically-advanced sneakers and gear that is engineered for top performance. The Air Zoom Pegasus has been around for 35 models and, again, that is for a reason. This particular shoe model has delivered excellent performance in every model and with each update, Nike makes it even better. The Pegasus 35 has some pretty great features in its upper which add flexibility and movement while the midsole has been updated for even more comfort, cushion and response. Nike worked in conjunction with several professional athletes including Mo Farah, a British running star, to adapt the 35 to perform even better. The Pegasus 35 is definitely a great update to its predecessor and will not disappoint.
- Updated lug system delivers smooth heel to toe transition
- Soft Cushlon combines with full-length Air Zoom air unit for excellent cushion and response
- Lightweight engineered mesh upper is breathable and allows for adaptable fit
- One less set of eyelets for more flexibility
- Tapered heel counter for freer movement of Achilles
- Sewn-in tongue for added comfort and ease of putting shoes on and off
- Affordable price tag
- The outsole may pick up some small pebbles from time to time
- May run a little on the narrow side
- I usually need a more supportive style shoe but these work. They have been very durable and comfortable. I used to have the Lunar Glide and these are less stable but more cushioned and comfortable they fit true and look really nice on my foot. The color bleeds through. It is weird. My socks always have the color of the shoe on them. I use pricey dry sweat socks.
- I have been using Nikes for 40 years and these are so good. They are the best they have made in years. I did have to change out the laces though.
- I go about 9 miles a day and these have been great. SO comfortable and the heel cup is very secure. I am able to do my speed work with security and confidence., no slipping. It snugs the Achilles and helps support it well. I didn't have an break in times in these.
- These have a smooth feel to them when running and absorb well. The arch feels a little misplaced though. Other than that they are near perfect. The sole is softer in these that the older pegasus. The shoe does perform pretty perfect.
- These are much different than any other Pegasus I have owned. They are bouncy and have a full length foam sole. They have a great stride transfer and they cushioning is way better.
- Great cushion flexibility and support. They look great and they feel even better. They heel is skinny and a little awkward. Takes getting used too.
- I am able to use m orthotics with these and they have good support. I like the width and they fit right on my skinny feet. They look really nice a well.
- I did not like the 34 model, so glad they fixed the Pegasus. The full length sole foam is killer and they are so padded and secure, it is nice to run in. They last a long time with a lot of running. Great upgrade, very happy with them.
- These are a pure upgrade to the Pegasus. I have worn them all and the last one was horrible I would say they put a bit too much padding in the mid shoe. They are a bit ugly but I love them either way. Feel good when running.
- I had the Epic Reacts and these are so much better in the heel cup. The bottom feels more durable. The back is less bouncy but I can wear them longer without pain.
- These are similar in support to the Mizuno Wave but with a lighter feel to them. They are like a glove since they are all one piece. The foam bounces nice and feels good all across the bottom of the foot bed. Has just enough support and the cushioning is nice.
- Great toe box and a great upgrade to the 34, which I oned 6 of. These are really nice and snug and keep true to the comfort of the Pegasus.
- These were perfect from the first wear No breaking in needed. I didn't get hot spots, they breathe well, and the comfort is the best in the model.
- I had the 32 forever and these are so much better. The foam goes all over the bottom and the support and grip are great. The style is good for casual wear but the shoe is built for a good run.
- These blew the 34 out of the water. These are a normal Nike sizing. They redid the fit to be more like the 31s. They are a great daily shoe for running and walking alike. I am so happy with my purchase.
- Nike fits my feet the best and these are dreamy. I run 20 miles a week and these feel so much better with the full length sole in them. The heel toe switch is great, some of the best Nike has made.
- The toe box is so much better than any Nike I have worn. I hate the heel though, fits weird and make the shoe less than satisfactory. It is a wonderful shoe though. I would recommend.
- So happy with these. They look great and feel way better than my old Asics. They are so responsive and work well out the box.
- I have had all the 30s of the Pegasus and it is great, soft and sturdy. They are light yet durable. A well rounded shoe. I am very happy with these for sure. Sizing seems to be true to Nike.
- The whole Pegasus line is the best Nike has I feel. They really hold up and have a great comfort to them. I like the full foot bd foam now and the heel is ok. I could deal without the point.
- I like it, or wanted to. They flattened out in the sole with 2 runs. This sucks on pavement after that. So disappointing. They were nice.
- They were low and had no support at all. They were tight and way too narrow. The cushioning seemed to fail after minimal use. They are light though.
- The toes are too wide in these and the eyelets are shorter making is less secure. These just do not fit my feet right. Awkward heel cup for sure.
- I tried this one after the 34 ducked and this one did too. These are way too narrow and the cushioning wasn't comfortable. The arches were misplaced and dug into the foot weird. The shoes were sized different as well.
- These are not equal to the Pegasus model The foot bed is new and way different and heel cup is so weird. The arches suck, period, I am not impressed, they went back to the store.
- I liked the 34s but these were way too narrow in the toes and the midsole was way too low and can't be adjusted. The shoe is one piece and it horrible. The sole was way too squishy.
- They redid an already great shoe. This is not a Pegasus for you fans. It didn't fit right at all and seems completely remodeled.
- These were too narrow and really uncomfortable based off the older versions. The laces do not do anything for the shoe either and the heel is awkward.
- These have made me question my loyalty to Nike. These are so narrow i feel they were made for ballerinas. Painfully uncomfortable and a set up for serious hammer toes. Too bad.
- I hate how the heel comes to a point and makes my ankles go numb. It is the weirdest sensation. They ripped the skin off of them as well. The 34s were so good. Why did Nike destroy the Pegasus.
Two noticeable upgrades to the Pegasus 35 appear in the sneakers’ upper. Firstly, the bottom row of eyelets have been removed, automatically pushing the lacing system up on the shoe, giving your foot more room to flex in the forefoot area and allowing the shoe to accommodate more foot shapes. The other noticeable upgrade is something running superstar Mo Farah suggested: a heel counter that tapers away from the heel. Although this may feel odd when you first put the shoe on, once you start running you don’t notice it. In fact, it is a bonus that your Achilles is freer to move. Because of this feature, the heel counter on the Pegasus 35 grips along the lower side of the ankle as opposed to the back so you still get that locked down feel you want in performance running shoes. The interior of the sneaker features soft mesh with a tongue attached to the shoe, which is another upgrade. The tongue of the Pegasus 35 comes up higher than its predecessors for easier on and off capabilities.
- Dual-cushioned midsole features soft Cushlon under the heel for a soft touch down and a full-length Air Zoom air cushion that extends from the heel to the forefoot
- Lateral crash rail on the outsole for support and stability
- One less row of eyelets allows for more flexibility
- Beveled heel helps to deliver a smooth heel to toe transition
- Specially designed tapered heel counter for freer Achilles movement
- Sewn-in tongue for easy on and off
