Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 Running Shoe Review

Nike-Pegasus-31-forefoot.jpg

For a long time I would not have considered trying a shoe like the Nike Pegasus. I generally like shoes that are lighter and lower profile, but over the past couple of years I’ve come to realize that a higher drop shoe will work fine for me if it has a relatively soft heel. I […]

Nike knows how to create killer marketing material, of that there is no doubt. I came across the promo video below for the new Nike Pegasus 31 a few days ago and thought I’d share – it features Mo Farah and Melissa Bishop, love the slow-mo gait lab footage! I actually bought a pair of […]
