Nike Pegasus 40

Nike introduced a new shoe…in 1983. A companywide contest was held to name the shoe, and after hundreds of submissions, Pegasus was chosen. The Pegasus 40 represents a lengthy legacy, spanning four decades. The upper features a computer generated woven mesh, textured to enhance moisture management, while maintaining the familiar profile of recent releases. The midsole of Nike Air is a standby for millions of runners, and the Pegasus was one of the first shoes to receive the technology, after the Tailwind introduced the breakthrough to the Nike line. The outersole is waffled, an iconic homage to tinkerer and cofounder Bill Bowerman’s curiosity and problem solving. While many shoes have entered the running ecosystem after the debut of the Pegasus, number 40 continues to go toe to toe with its challengers. Comfortable, versatile, durable; feel free to stack on the miles.
