  • The midsole utilizes the innovative ZoomX foam technology that brings revolutionary responsiveness, making it perfect for long-distance training. This foam also offers incredible energy return to the user. 
  • An impact-absorbing outsole is integrated into Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 Rise running shoe. It is designed not only to protect the foot but also increase the shoe’s lifespan making it more durable. The rubber outsole also delivers multi-surface traction.

Size and fit

Taking a trainer to the next level, the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 Rise is now lighter and more supportive to keep the user motivated throughout the running session. The standard sizing scheme is used when this running shoe was made. Runners can purchase a pair in their usual sizing expectations. However, it is advisable to test the shoe first or utilize user feedback to achieve a pleasant in-shoe experience. 


Quality Rubber is employed in the outsole section of Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 Rise.  This rubber outsole helps absorb impact by diminishing the amount of kinetic energy that enters the body with each stride. The Angled heel optimizes the initial heelstrike to allow smooth transitions while running. 


The midsole of the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 Rise employs Nike ZoomX foam. This component offers incredible energy-return performance. The foam is combined with the rubber outsole to provide a sufficient amount of cushioning and responsive feel to the foot. 

To improve the running speed, a partial inner sleeve that extends from toe to midfoot locks the foot into the footbed during high speeds. 


Nike updated this running companion with a feather-light upper that is translucent and breathable. The upper is made out of lofted mesh and decorated with the label's iconic 'Just Do It' and 'Swoosh' logos. The heel collar tapers away from the foot to provide additional comfort around the Achilles tendon.

The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 Rise utilizes the Nike Flywire lacing system to minimize the shoe weight while maximizing support. The Flywire design keeps the foot from slipping when walking or running. Another Nike running shoe that uses the Flywire design is the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36
