Nike Pegasus +30

 

Great running shoe. I only run in Nike's, so I tried the top three out which were the Free Runs, the Lunarglides, and the Pegasus. Pegasus are built for neutral runners and are the least popular of these three. But when you think of it, the shoe came out in 1983, and now it is 2014. The shoe has been around over 30 years and the other shoes are just turning five years old.

The upper is a strong mesh and uses a cushlon outsole versus the lunarlon used in the Nike Lunarglides. The cushlon is made for training and does not need a few runs to break in where as lunarlon needs a while to break in just so you can feel comfortable while running. Lunarlon did not work well for me, it wears out very quick and the dynamic support gives out after about 200 miles of pounding which leads to over-pronation and the first signs of shin splints which the lunarlon is made to help since it is a cushioning made for stability shoes.

Even though I pronate, the neutral running shoe conforms to my foot very well. I love the feeling to the shoe. And I'd rather have confidence in a pair of shoes that feel comfortable than in a pair of shoes made for my feet and I hate running an entire season in.

Overall, it is the best shoe I have ran and I definitely will be using this shoe for the rest of my training in high school and further on. It took roughly a year and a half to find the shoe that helps me with comfort while running and with injuries from running. Since I have been running in these, I have had limited hip pain and shin pains which were present when I had been running in the Lunarglides and Free Runs. The shoe is built like a tank and is the best shoe from the Nike arsenal for distance running. I have about  a hundred miles ran in them as of now and they still look like I pulled them out of the orange box.
