The zigzag stitch indicative of this high-performance mesh maintains the strength of the shoes upper. And the single bootie construction of the upper and it's tough woven fabric make it hold up well even with constant use. The outsole was noted for being incredibly wear-resistant and lasting for a long time before it even began to thin. All in all, Nike delivers another running shoe built to last beyond your miles.
The lightweight and breathable mesh upper allows ease of airflow and the new lowered ankle collar helps the foot to feel a little more free and breathable without sacrificing any stability. The collar also has a gentle roll away from the heel to provides support without friction to your Achilles tendon. The tongue is a bit longer and larger than past versions and customers have given mixed reviews on that, some feeling like the new larger tongue created a little unwanted discomfort.
The new heel collar design really ensures that the runner will have no friction where the shoe meets the ankles, something avid runners will surely appreciate. All in all, Nike has outdone themselves again with the Pegasus 35. With their incredible options for customization, these shoes will make everyone a happier runner thanks to happier feet!
