My love of sneakers really stems from running in many of the silhouettes that I collect. Given that, a new shoe for actual running is about as good as it gets for me. I’ve run all week in the new Pegasus 35 Turbo, and at this point feel like I have enough runs in to provide feedback. First off, I am not that technical with running, so I’m not going to be going into specifics. If you want a thorough review, I’d suggest checking out the article from @matthalfhill on @nicekicks. Here’s my take...I have large, flat feet, and I’m not overly small for a runner, so comfort and cushion are big factors for me. A couple of miles into my first run, this pair was noticeably more firm than my beloved Skechers, so I was concerned. However, soon thereafter I started to adjust to the lower to the ground and relatively light feel of this shoe and I found its magic. The ZoomX midsole provides the best combination of cushion, support and lightweight feel under feet that I’ve ever run in. I haven’t done any 15+ mile runs in them yet, so stay tuned for that, but for 2–10 mile runs I find them to be excellent. Whereas I typically feel the weight of high cushion shoes over the course of a run, that combination of the weight/cushion feel on the Turbos makes them more comfortable to me the longer I run. I’ve had negative splits in every run in them so far, which is a rarity for me. The upper is the most comfortable knit upper that I’ve ever run in too. They’re wider than a lot of lightweight running shoes, which I find more comfortable the longer that I get into my runs. I recommend going a half size up unless you’re one of the weirdos that likes to run in tight shoes. I hope this helps those of y’all considering trying them out for running.
