On your high-mileage runs, comfort is the number-one priority.

This is paired with premium Cushlon foam for enhanced cushioning and comfort that lasts through your longest runs. Simultaneously, a rubber crash rail in the lateral outsole expands your footprint so that your feet plant firmly on impact, stabilizing your stride through toe-off. This is combined with a low 10mm heel-to-toe offset, creating a natural footstrike and smooth transition that won't strain your lower body.
Lastly, the iconic Waffle outsole of the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus grips the ground with each stride, helping to propel you forward with greater speed and security. The outsole's durable rubber will last mile after mile, making sure you get the most out of your runs.
