Video reviews and unboxing
- The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus is known for being one of, if not the, most reliable running shoe from the brand. The excellence of the shoe is taken one step further, in the form of the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo. As the name implies, this Zoom Pegasus Turbo is meant to deliver the ultimate speed and a solid fit and feel, making it perfect for speed sessions and race days.
- The upper presents a translucent material that gives the runner a lightweight feel. This unique design makes the shoe look like it is moving even when the wearer is standing still.
- The main attraction of the Zoom Pegasus Turbo is the midsole, where it uses the ZoomX foam. First introduced in the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4%, this material offers a fantastic level of energy return, as well as a heightened responsiveness with each stride. The sole unit is completed by a rubber outsole that helps in achieving smooth landings and transitions.
Runners are recommended to purchase the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo in their usual sizing preference, as the shoe runs true-to-size. Although the shoe follows an anatomical shape, the silhouette is quite different, as it has a beveled heel for maintaining a good running position and long-lasting comfort. The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo is available in medium width for both the men’s and women’s versions.
The outsole of the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo features an unusual shape: It starts as conventional in the forefoot, then it tapers towards the rearfoot for a pointed edge at the heel. This design secures the foot, therefore allowing it to move correctly in a biomechanical sense.
The outsole tread is made up of pentagon-shaped nubs across the length of the shoe. The high-wear areas are formed from carbon rubber, in which the geometric pattern endorses durability. Meanwhile, the remaining portion is made from React foam. While similarly durable as the carbon rubber, the React foam has an additional purpose of stabilizing the ZoomX in the midsole.
Featuring the ZoomX foam in the midsole, the Zoom Pegasus Turbo provides the lightest and most responsive ride, which is ideal for runners who are after speed and comfortable agility. ZoomX gives the wearer a fast and bouncy sensation that is long-lasting and consistent.
The unique composition of the ZoomX allows it to be softer in the heel area to ensure a protected and well-cushioned ride, but not at the expense of bounciness.
The highly-compressible nature of the ZoomX foam reacts according to the weight applied to it, and it responds promptly to produce a forward propulsion. Because this technology is created from Pebax®, it has a low density, is flexible, and has high impact resistance.
The translucent mesh upper of the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo aims for an increased amount of airflow for improved breathability. As it keeps the foot cool, the translucent mesh also provides a seamless fit that reduces the risk of skin irritation.
Flywire cables are found on both sides of the upper, which are a set of strong wires to wrap the midfoot and arch in a snug and adjustable support. The Flywire cables help connect the laces to the midsole for a guaranteed locked-down fit.
Because of the narrow heel area, the heel counter has a thin structure. It permits the foot to stay centered and balanced over the midsole foam.
The low-cut collar has a curved shape, as it aims to prevent rubbing and chafing in the Achilles area.
