There is a reason why the Nike Pegasus has lasted this long. Beyond the incremental updates over the last 37 years, the Nike Pegasus has been one of the most trusted runners in Nike’s line up. For this year’s all-new Nike Pegasus 37, the runner features some major updates in terms of design and construction.
Downsized Zoom unit
First up, Nike downsized the Zoom unit from full length to a smaller forefoot unit with twice the thickness. On top of that, the brand tailored the runner’s feel to each gender’s preferences by altering the pressure within each unit. These changes were made based on feedback from runners which revealed that women preferred softer forefoot units while men preferred more responsive ones.
New midsole configuration
Next, Nike introduced a new midsole configuration – encasing the forefoot Zoom unit into a React foam. Yes, you read that right. Just like the Pegasus ZoomX, the new Pegasus 37 comes with a full React midsole. This allows the sneaker to be much lighter than its predecessors and provide much better impact protection. Combine that with a thin, mesh upper, the Nike Pegasus 37 presents itself as one of the lightest runners you can get.
But not everything has changed. The Nike Pegasus 37 still has a collar that tapers away from your heel – to prevent abrasions. It also has the same waffle outsole, so you can expect the same level of grip as seen on prior Pegasus runners.
