  • You want something that can make your jaws drop both inside and out.

Who should not buy it

If you want something with a dedicated heel loop, opt for the Nike Air Max 97. Also, you're better off wearing the more durable Nike Air Max 90 if you're desperate for a super-tough pair.

The Nike P-6000 in history

Aiming to further make its impact in the running culture, the Swoosh brand released the Nike Air Pegasus in 1983. With its affordable price range and impressive support features, the shoe made a buzz among runners and casuals. It exhibited a molded sockliner and the BRS 1000 rubber outsole. It was based on the Greek mythical stallion Pegasus, which symbolizes swiftness and elegance.

Numerous follow-up models were released after the 1983 classic. These included the Nike Air Pegasus 89, 92, and 2006. While it was designed and built to be a performance shoe, the shoe was considered for lifestyle use because of its rather common design.

Celebrating its decades of bringing the best in runners, Nike released a street version of the Nike Air Pegasus. Introduced in 2019, the Nike P-6000 features vintage running aesthetics combined with modern comfort and street-centric supportiveness.
