Good to know

  • The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 FlyEase is a running shoe that’s designed for the consumer who has neutral pronation. The majority of its components are similar to the original Pegasus 34 iteration, but with a lighter Flymesh upper and a lace-free lock-in system that involves Bungee cords and a zipper at the heel.
  • The underfoot platform features a full-length foam material that carries the foot throughout the activity, aiming to deliver a responsive ride. Two plastic cassettes that have compressed air inside them are added in the rear and forefoot sections of the midsole. They heighten protection from impact as well as the cushioning.

The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 FlyEase was designed using standard measurements. Regarding length, it aims to accommodate the usual preferences of consumers. The available widths for the women’s version are B – Medium and D – Wide while the men’s iteration features the D – Medium and 4E – Wide options. The semi-curved shape of the last allows the natural curvature of the foot to ease onto the platform.

The outsole unit of the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 FlyEase makes use of a rubber compound to protect the midsole from wear and tear. It has pentagonal patterns raised sections to enable traction and support over the surfaces.

Thin grooves separate the outsole into sections. They permit the natural movement capacity of the foot by causing the sole unit to bend accordingly to the motion.

The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 FlyEase’s underfoot platform is made up of a foam unit that runs the entire length of the shoe. Its purpose is to provide a responsive and shock-absorbing ride.

Air Zoom cassettes are added to the rear and front portions of the midsole in the FlyEase version of the Pegasus 34. These components heighten the springiness of each step while also amplifying impact attenuation.

A rubber crash rail is placed on the lateral side. This element helps the foot in keeping steady when striking on the ground and when transitioning from the heel to the toe.

Flymesh is Nike’s proprietary cloth-like upper. It’s designed to be smooth, breathable and flexible. The FlyEase iteration of the Pegasus 34 gets an update because the material used in it is lighter than the past ones.

The lining of this shoe makes use of smooth fabric. Its goal is to wrap the foot and prevent irritation or hot spots softly.

The FlyEase closure system involves a zipper and a hook-and-loop fastener on the heel part. It fundamentally eases the means by which the foot enters the shoe’s interior chamber. When unzipped, the collar opens wide to facilitate easy entry/removal. Fastening this unit finishes the closure of the upper.

There isn’t a traditional lacing system in this product. Bungee cords connect to the standard Flywire cables that are positioned on the lateral and medial sections. They can’t be tightened or loosened, thus completing the intent of the FlyEase initiative to do away with the conventional shoestring adjustment method.
