Not too many shoes last through 29 versions. The latest Pegasus is a testament to the comfortable, crowd-pleasing fit and ride the Pegasus series has offered over the years. A fresh design from heel to toe, the Air Pegasus+ 29 sports a few innovative features that look to keep it on the top of the list for neutral runners who want a reliable daily training companion.
What to Watch For
- Engineered Mesh Upper: A lightweight, breathable material that minimizes the need for overlays, this mesh has differing weave patterns to give the upper added support where needed.
- Controlled Cushioning: 10mm of Zoom Air in the heel is encased in Cushlon carrier foam, which has been notched laterally in the rearfoot for better compression. Fine grooves in the rubber outsole further improve the shoe’s cushioned feel.
- Lighter Weight: The Men’s Pegasus 29 is estimated to come in at 10.0 oz, while the Women’s model should tip the scale around 8.4 oz. That’s about a half ounce lighter in the Men’s and a full ounce lighter in the Women’s.
