Nike Pegasus 33 – No compromise shoe with looks to boot!

The latest edition of the Nike Pegasus provides a fast and compact feel without compromising on cushioning and comfort. A flexible shoe suitable for the neutral runner, it is able to handle high mileage so you won’t be left feeling sore underfoot.

At 250 grams (US9 W), it sits between the Brooks Launch and the slightly lighter Hoka Clifton in terms of weight, but it’s not as bulky as the Clifton and has a more responsive ride.

The seamless mesh upper won’t rub or irritate bunions, and the Flywire cables ensure your feet won’t move around in the shoe. What’s more, the Pegasus also looks fantastic.

It’s a good idea to have different shoes for different uses. Being an avid Hoka wearer I would use the Clifton for my long easy training runs, and bring out the Pegasus for faster-paced training and racing when I need more speed.

If you haven’t owned a pair of Nikes since the 80s now might be the time to re-visit this iconic shoe and see why it remains one of the most popular and long-lived on the market. I wasn’t disappointed!

Key reasons why I like the Nike Pegasus 33

  • Lightweight
  • Superior cushioning
  • Durability
  • Stylish look
  • Well priced at $179.95
