- Engineered Mesh – Variably stitched upper provides lightweight structure and minimizes overlays.
- Lateral Crash Cuts – Horizontal grooves in the heel of the midsole allow for easier compression and controlled motion.
The latest Pegasus increases plushness compared to past models, offering a mountain of cushioning and a simple, structured upper for miles of comfort. If you enjoy a super-soft ride, you’ll feel right at home in the Pegasus.
The variable-stitch mesh in the upper minimizes overlays while providing support in key areas. We liked the Flywire fibers that tighten down the midfoot, and the lacing is easily adjustable. Testers also felt anchored in the heel, with a padded heel collar and supportive heel counter.
Even with all the cushioning, the Pegasus 29 is pretty light, both on the scale and on your foot. That lighter feel is helped along by a flexible midsole that produces a smooth transition.
Count on the Pegasus 29 for serious impact protection no matter how far your run takes you. The flexible midsole will keep you moving forward with ease, as the sleek upper hugs your foot right where you need it.
“I don’t remember the last time I was in a running shoe with this much cushioning. But the shoe works as a total package as well – comfortable, supportive upper and very good traction from the outsole rubber.” – Matt
“The Pegasus continues to be designed with the heel striker in mind. High-mileage comfort is what this shoe is all about.” – Alice
