In 1983, Nike introduced the Pegasus, with intentions of it to be the shoe for every runner. True enough, some of the world's best distance runners like Evan Jager, Faith Kipyegon, and Mo Farah have trained in the Pegasus. As one of the silhouette's biggest fan, Mo Farah also played a part in giving feedbacks on how the Pegasus could be improved.
In its 35 years of life, the Pegasus has undergone major technology shifts; such as moving bottom eyelet to open up and provide flex in the foot. Aimed at improving the overall running experience, the women’s version has a softer CushIon foam specially tuned for the female foot while the tongue is notched to make it easier to put on and take off the shoe.
The sneaker has also taken inspiration from the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% where Nike’s designers have combined the two airbags for the previous Pegasus into one that mimics the shape of the 4%’s curved carbon-fibre plate. The new shape provides responsive cushioning that improves transition and flexibility.
Look out for the latest release of the Air Zoom Pegasus 35, in 'Taupe' colorway, this June! The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 'Taupe' will be available on nike.com and at selected retailers for RRP SGD$199.
