Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 37 Shield: A weatherized running shoe

The Pegasus 37 Shield from Nike is designed for winter running; hence, the addition of a half shroud on the upper. It acts as the water-repellent element of the running shoe for those who run in wet conditions. Complementing the upper is the outsole, which has also been redesigned to offer excellent grip, especially on damp surfaces. 

Pegasus 37 Shield vs. 36 

The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 37 Shield retains the same comfort and accommodating fit from its predecessor. However, because its midsole has been overhauled with React foam, here are some of the benefits you reap from the 37th iteration:

Faster feel. Because the foam creates more energy return, propulsion is generated without having to exert much effort. 

More durable. Compared to the Cushlon ST foam of the precursor, the React foam has a more sturdy build and is intended to last greater miles. 

Who and what is it for? 

The Pegasus 37 Shield is perfect for neutral runners who want a running shoe for:

  • winter conditions
  • tempo runs
  • mid-distance training 
  • daily running
