Product news: The Pegasus+ 30 - released to celebrate 30 years of the prestigious Nike Air Pegasus

Runners of all levels know that success takes time – and a lot of hard work. Over three decades, the Nike Air Pegasus has evolved year by year to become a trusted mainstay in running, a shoe that consistently meets runners’ needs and earns their steadfast loyalty. 

Now, the new Air Pegasus+ 30 builds on its strong heritage with modern technology in the lightest edition yet.

“Pegasus is one of my favorite shoes,” says world champion distance runner Mo Farah, who has trained in the Nike Air Pegasus for much of his career. “It’s really important to have a training shoe that’s very well cushioned, as light as possible, but gives you that support you need.”

For 30 years, the shoe has been a running staple, beloved for Nike Zoom cushioning, a cradle-like fit and its light weight. While the Pegasus model has evolved over time, it always stays true to its roots, consistently delivering the reliable qualities runners have come to expect.

Improvements focus on three fit zones: forefoot, midfoot and heel. Strategically-placed no-sew overlays lend a seamless interior and ultra-lightweight feel. Nike engineered mesh provides targeted support and breathability, and the Nike Zoom unit in the heel offers springy, responsive cushioning. The internal heel counter securely wraps the back of the foot.

The Pegasus franchise has long been known for its secure fit. The Nike Air Pegasus+ 30 uses a Fitsole sockliner to help conform to the shape of the foot. A reflective skin under the upper helps keep runners visible in low-light conditions.

Environmentally-preferred rubber in the waffle outsole is durable and provides great multi-surface traction. Precisely-placed flex grooves -- deeper along the lateral side and more shallow on the medial side -- promote a natural, efficient stride.

After 30 years, the Pegasus has covered millions of miles. The Nike Air Pegasus+ 30 gives flight to the next generation on a new journey. 

The Nike Air Pegasus+ 30 is available on nike.com
