The new Air Pegasus + 27
So we notice the new Nike Air Pegasus has an updated ‘feel’. One puts feet to the pavement in these lighter shoes and notices the soft sensation of a marshmallow underneath. The 27th version of Nike’s staple in the Bowerman series has a patented Cushlon EVA midsole configured similarly to the more expensive Zoom Vomero’s.
With only sporadic running these days, I am wearing a pair to run and work in, wearing them every day just to see how long they will feel good. After 3 weeks they are still very cushioned, even after a short mile with the dogs and then 8 or 9 hours on the sales floor.
Nike kept a good full medium forefoot on this version, but with a less sloppy fit using a ‘bootie sleeve’, a fabric saddle attached to the tongue that hugs the instep nicely.
To keep calling myself a runner, I’ll have to add some time and mileage (does speed mowing the lawn count?).
These shoes are motivation to do just that…~Staff review contributed by Barry C.
