Running gears - New shoes- Nike Pegasus 27+

I mentioned already a post before, I have a pair of new shoes. I bought a pair of Pegasus to replace my old Sauconys. I wanted to get something for long distances and after a little research I choosed the Pegs.

The first Pegasus- Hello Pegasus 1983

Pegasus's history in nut shell:

Pegasus is Nike's one of most iconic and oldest running shoes. First Pegasus created in 1983 is known to be the shoe for every runner and had experienced various changes and modifications throughout its life. It disappeared for awhile in the 90s but thousands of runners reached out to Nike through emails and phone calls asking for the shoe they love and hoped that Pegasus will be back and it was.

In 1983 Hello Pegasus was created that featured an Air – Sole wedged in the heel a swing of other features not found on any shoe at its price range. By 1987, the shoe got its official name changed to Air Pegasus while the amount of air was increased for better cushioning. The Air Pegasus was updated in 1989 with an upper and was especially soft and fits like a glove.

On its 10 birthday in 1993, Air Pegasus sold 17 million pairs and its inner sleeve was changed into a spandex but with mixed reviews the changed proved to be temporary. Air Pegasus went to a more traditional upper in 1994.
Air Pegasus in 1996 was the first of two editions of the shoe where a visible Air – Sole unit in the heel was visible but most runners were not happy with the changed and the shoe regressed to the consistent, reliable cushioning.

Air Pegasus was reborn after a three – year lull with all the good genes of its forefathers plus some evolutions. The heel wedge was replaced by a full – length Air – Sole while a new version of the tried and true Waffle outside offered exceptional traction. The reintroduction of the Air Pegasus was made exciting with a more universal fit and supportive upper.

For the very first time, the women’s shoe was modified to match the female anatomy in 2004 as the Air Pegasus experience a steady evolution of the millennial version.

Air Pegasus featured a better fitting upper, more flexible forefoot and gender –specific crash pads in 2006 making the Runner’s World International Editor’s Choice for Shoe of the Year. And in 2008, Air Pegasus +25 became the best Air Pegasus, paying respect to the original while providing cushioning that was not even a hint in 1983. Cushioning technology featured a three – pronged system of full – length Nike Air, light and flexible Phylon and soft PU. As a whole this system forms the most complete combination of lightweight, durability and comfortable cushioning than any Air Pegasus in 2008.

The Nike Air Pegasus SE came out that featured the original waffle design, a whole new full length air – sole and a lighter 2007 shoe. Nike Pegasus SE was a hybrid performance shoe with an upper sole inspired by the original Pegasus that came with a special box for collectors.

Air Pegasus 25 was the best edition that came out in 2008 and was Nike’s best seller until 2009. The retro style of the Pegasus SE was designed more for a fashion trainer rather than for a serious running shoe. The Air Pegasus continued its timeless series with Air Pegasus 26 and 27 and the controversial Nike Air Pegasus 28.

My personal experiences:
I own this shoes less then 72 hours ago, but I love them! I tried them out yesterday during my long run and I clocked nearly 28km in. They are awesome, give you a very plush ride. Shoes are well cushioned but quite flexible in the same time. The hells have Nike Zoom unit integrated in.
When I picked up the shoes from the box, they were surprisingly light! I expected something heavier. I scaled them and only 8 grams different between those and my LG2-s. Wooow!



Lunar vs. Pegasus ( Lunar is UK10, Pegasus is UK 10,5)


I feel Pegs are more plush then LG2s but not as responsive, but I can't feel the "floating" effect, what my LG2s give me some time on sharp turns. Thanks for yesterday drizzle I could try them out in wet condition as well and I noticed the Pegs give you better grip in wet condition. With LG2-s I had couple of interesting moments in wet condition.
28km in one go for first time, no irritation, no blisters, no worries... just a pleasure! I think I found my ideal long distance training (racing?) shoes! I feel myself very lucky, that I did the right pick for a first time! What should be a next????
Unfortunately my LG2-s is a bit small for me..I started to look a Lunar Elites now for a shorter distances and speed workout and tempo runs.

Today, I went to the beach with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
"You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
