Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 92 Premium History

Back in 1983, Nike designer Bruce Kilgore together with then Nike CEO Mark Parker and other Nike designers worked on a running shoe with an idea in mind – it should be an affordable option for runners. They came up with a simple-designed running shoe with a nylon and suede upper known as the Nike Pegasus. It received an official name change to “Nike Air Pegasus” when air-sole cushioning became one of the best options for runners. The 1987 version of this shoe had more air volume in the heel for improved cushioning, while the front part of the sole utilized EVA foam.

In 1989, the Nike Air Pegasus upgraded its material from synthetic leather to a soft and breathable mesh upper, while the Nike Air midsole and a rubber outsole retained. Its release received a positive response from runners that it became a hit and one of the best sellers of its era. This version inspired another bestseller from the line, the Nike Air Pegasus 1992 version. It took the synthetic mesh and leather upper with side panels, but the lateral reinforcements along the heel are much larger than that in the earlier version.

Fast forward to 2016, Nike launched a premium version of the Nike Air Pegasus 92 known officially as the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 92 Premium. The upgraded materials made the classic shoe look more sophisticated and even more stylish. It utilizes a premium leather on the upper, a Nike Air Zoom unit midsole, and a herringbone-patterned outsole.

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 92 Premium Style

The premium update on the classic Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 92 makes the shoe more stylish and modern without losing the original silhouette's timeless appeal. One can easily rock it with any casual outfit as its overall design offers flexibility in terms of styling.

Fit & Sizing

The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 92 Premium is available in men’s sizes ranging from 6 to 14 in D Medium width. The structure of these shoes provides sufficient hold and support on the feet considering its running shoe DNA, while the traditional lace closure allows a snug but adjustable fit. There is also an extra eyelet on the tongue to keep it secure. The tongue and collar are both padded to provide comfort around the ankle.

Notable Features

The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 92 Premium is an updated take on the ‘90s classic. It features a chunky sole with a Nike Air Zoom unit, similar to the other Nike Air Pegasus versions. The compression-molded one-piece upper, however, utilizes a premium leather material from heel to toe instead of mesh.

Additional Info

  • The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 92 Premium also features a Nike Air Zoom sole unit for soft and plush cushioning and a herringbone-patterned rubber outsole for grip.
  • The Nike Air brandings are visible on the tongue and on the heel. The heel counter, on the other hand, displays the text “Air Pegasus”.
  • The “Olympic” colorway of this shoe model features golden aglets (the tips of the shoelaces).
