Back in 1983, the mythical Greek flying horse Pegasus served as the inspiration for the new Nike Pegasus running shoe. Designed to be lightweight and flexible, yet supportive, its construction elements included a nylon upper with a suede toe, low-profile foam midsole to absorb impacts, and Bill Bowerman’s famous waffle-style rubber outsole. The company invited athletes to take to the air with the aid of the innovative Air Wedge heel cushioning unit; in fact, the shoe was originally dubbed the Air Wedge Trainer. The Pegasus went on to be the company’s all-time, best-selling running shoe (and highly prized street kick), while evolving through the next four decades.
