Video reviews and unboxing
- The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo returns in its second iteration as a lighter and sleeker running shoe that is ideal for everyday runs. The shoe brings signature, innovative features from Nike that allow for a responsive ride, even in the long distances.
- A new textile upper is more lightweight and more breathable compared to the first Zoom Pegasus Turbo. This version does away with the Flywire cables, which is replaced with a new technique to reinforce the shoelaces.
- The midsole gets a familiar treatment as the ZoomX foam is retained in this Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2. Working together with the React foam, the ZoomX produces a midsole that is bouncy yet stable at the same time. The outsole also utilizes the same elements as the previous edition of the Zoom Pegasus Turbo.
The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 is a neutral running shoe that is built following the standard in running shoes. Thus, runners should expect a comfortable fit in their usual sizing. The shoe’s heel width, midfoot room, and toe box are able to accommodate up to medium-volume feet. On the other hand, the toe box height is kept at a minimal to ensure a snug fit. The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 is available in Medium width in both men’s and women’s versions.
The blown rubber outsole of the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 provides multi-surface traction that contributes to a smooth and consistent ride. The lightweight quality of this material ensures the convenience of wear for the runner. Also, when compared to carbon rubber, blown rubber is less firm, thus providing a softer platform during the transition phase.
The forefoot and rearfoot areas of the outsole feature the signature Waffle pattern that is unique to the brand. This detail promotes efficient shock absorption and multi-directional grip by means of using the least amount of rubber as possible. The Waffle pattern is formed by pentagon-shaped lugs that equip the shoe with a durable yet flexible underfoot unit that effectively cushions the forces upon impact. Another Nike running shoe that uses this outsole detail is the Zoom Vaporfly 4%, which is a highly-popular shoe for race days.
At the lateral side of the outsole is a rubber crash rail that aids in smooth transitions and flexible movements. This benefit is further augmented by the angled shape of the heel.
The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 uses a combination of two foam compounds in the midsole to deliver double the cushioning and the responsiveness that aid in long-distance runs—the ZoomX and the React foams. The two foams are positioned stacking one another, with the ZoomX on top and slightly concentrated on the forefoot area, aiming for a soft toe-off.
The ZoomX is built as the most lightweight and most responsive foam from the brand, thus providing greater energy return. This characteristic is guaranteed as the ZoomX is derived from a material that is used in aerospace innovation. The result is a midsole foam that is soft and plush but without the added bulk. The ZoomX foam is positioned directly underfoot to ensure a propulsive sensation as the runner moves forward.
While the ZoomX claims to be the lightest, the React foam, on the other hand, prides itself as the most durable cushioning material from Nike. The React works alongside the runner by—as its name implies—reacting to each step, bouncing back to its original shape, and making sure the ride is consistent with a steady stride. The React foam is closer to the outsole of the Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 because it delivers a high level of shock absorption.
The engineered mesh upper of the Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 has a lofted design, which gives it a slanted, translucent finish. The material has the combined characteristics of breathability, durability, and lightness.
One of the most notable updates in this shoe is the removal of the Flywire cables. Instead, the shoelaces pass through a synthetic strip of fused material that acts as an eye-stay. The synthetic strip provides a second set of holes, or eyelets, which allow for customization when lacing up the shoe.
Beneath the mesh is an inner sleeve that goes across from the toe to the midfoot gives the necessary support to help log longer miles.
In place of a stiff toe bumper, the forefront of the Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 features a densely woven-in material that creates a soft yet protective coverage for the toes.
Meanwhile, the collar remains similar to its predecessor as it presents a low-cut profile and a minimalistic, thin design that tapers away at its end. This layout intends to promote maximum comfort in the ankle and Achilles areas as it prevents chafing. The thin collar is partnered with an equally slim heel cup, which allows the foot to stay centered as it rests on the midsole foam.
In addition to the collar, the tongue also has a thin finish with minimal padding. This is to keep the shoe lightweight and to provide comfort through the least material possible. It also displays a slightly asymmetrical design, which is for aesthetic purposes.
