I was looking to try out a shoe that would be suitable for everyday uses and decided upon the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 38. In this brief review, I’m sharing my thoughts about this member of the Pegasus range that people are generally talking about positively.
Materials on the Pegasus 38
The Zoom Pegasus is made from synthetic fabric on the main outer area as well as the inner lining and the footbed. It has a rubber sole. Here are a few shots of the shoes from a few different angles:
How They Feel
The shoe itself is clearly designed for comfort, as it can hardly be noticed when it’s being worn. It feels quite ‘bouncy’ and lightweight to wear and the flexible material means that you might even be able to get away with a size smaller than you normally wear (I did).
The rebound and cushioning are very good indeed in my view although there is not a great deal of support on the ankle area (it can be considered a tad loose compared to other trainers/sneakers).
These might not be the most exciting Nike shoe from a visual perspective (it looks like a bog-standard everyday Nike) but not everyone is going to be bothered about that aspect.
Instead, I’d say the Air Zoom Pegasus 38’s looks are pretty classic.
Get or Forget?
Overall, I give this springy shoe my seal of approval and have already done over 50 miles in them without a hitch. That’s not to say that I’d ever expect to have one from a brand like Nike.
Try them out and I’m sure that you’ll agree with everything that I have mentioned here in this express review.
