Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 Men's Running Shoe QUICK, SMOOTH TRANSITION. Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 Men's Running Shoe has been re-imagined to look as fast as it feels. A full-length Zoom Air unit and beveled heel work together for optimal responsiveness, while engineered mesh and Flywire cables lock you down for speed.
Full-length Zoom Air unit provides a smooth, responsive ride. Beveled heel optimizes initial touchdown and transition. Engineered mesh and partial bootie provide a supportive feel. Bottom eyelet has been moved up to open up the forefoot flex zone and provide an optimal fit. Heel collar has been engineered to rake away from the foot for comfort around the Achilles tendon. High resiliency sockliner shapes to your foot to provide comfort and underfoot support. Small cut outs in the rubber expose the Cushlon midsole and increase outsole flexibility. Athlete: Eliud Kipchoge Offset: 10mm (12 mm forefoot, 22 mm heel) Last: MR-10
The point on the back of the sole is much more pronounced than it appears in the photos on this site. When I took them out of the box my family and I all laughed at how they looked very elfish. The sole comes to a long sharp point out the back of the shoe.
I normally wear a medium width size 7.5 - which is the size I bought of these shoes. They do fit snug, like a glove - toes almost touch the front of shoe. It only took 1 time wearing to get adjusted to that feeling. Being snug, there is absolutely no foot movement which is great. 1 star taken off because they have no traction on wet roads, at least on the first few uses. First time wearing I landed on a wet area of the sidewalk that had been recently watered and nearly lost my footing. I've had other running and trail shoes that had same problem on first few wears (being slippery) so I'm hoping the same is true with these.
Fit and confort are good. Size ran true. I’m really disappointed that the toe collapsed after taking one step. After wearing for 5 minutes, a permanent dimple has formed just to the side of the midpoint. Toe should be reinforced better.
I’m a returning Air Pegasus wearer, this being my 4th pair. My first pair was recommended by my local running shop and I’ve never looked back. I land heavily on my heel and also show significant wear under my forefoot so the new full length zoom bag has been a welcome addition with the newest release. Will probably be the only running shoe I ever wear, I am considering the new “Turbo” model for my next pair.
I wanted to like this shoe. I really did. The upper is one of the most comfortable on a Pegasus in a long time, at least for me. However, at the end of the day, what's under your feet maters much more than what's on top. And this is where this year's pegasus falls flat thanks to the new zoom setup. I was excited to get the shoe after hearing it would include a full length zoom bag; however, after the 50-70 mile honeymoon period ended with the shoe I felt like the ride had become uncharacteristically harsh for me. From what I've seen online it looks as though the full length zoom bag came with a tradeoff of having the height of the bag decreased, resulting in less zoom under your foot at a given point. And I'm a forefoot striker, so this revelation was disappointing since your forefoot is also where there is the least foam cushioning. Although it's a serviceable, snappy trainer for trails/dirt roads, I log most of my miles on pavement. So I have to give it a 2/5 rating.
These shoes are great if you're looking solely for comfort. When i tried them on for the first time my feet were in heaven. I have bunions on both feet and you can't go wrong with these shoes. The issue I had was when I look down at the shoes while standing I can see dents at the tips. They were not able to maintain their shape. Maybe in a few years when I don't care what my shoes look like, I'll purchase a pair again. Right now I'm still caught up in appearance so I will pass on these comfy sneakers.
I love these new Nike Pegasus 35 running shoes. I have been running in Nike shoes since the 1970's. In fact, my first pair were Nike Daybreaks. Without question, these new Pegasus 35's are the best running shoes I have owned. Just to nit-pik, I do not like the flat-shaped shoe laces that come with the Pegasus 35's. I hate them because they often come untied while I am in a good run AND I hate to double-tie my laces. I wish the Pegasus 35's came with the rounded laces that Nike includes with their structure shoes. I have NEVER had those laces come untied while I was on a run.
The transition, speedy feel, and smooth transition make running in any other Pegasus feel slow, clunky, and stiff. The new full length zoom unit and softer foam is plush yet still responsive. This shoe is almost perfect. However the arch support is odd and misplaced, feels too large and awkwardly pushed too far back towards the heel, making the second problem the heel-to-toe drop more noticeable...on to the only other gripe the heel offset: I would love to see Nike turn this same sole and cushion setup into an 8mm drop. This is a speed shoe and I feel the 10mm offset just takes away a bit from the transition. All that being said it’s still the best Pegasus to date and the best running shoe on the market. Just has two glaring design flaws, but everything else is so well designed it still performs excellent. Good job Nike!
Love these! I’d been running im the same old pair of Asics for the past few years but got these and it’s night and day. They are super responsive and you feel the bounce and support immediately on your first few steps. Ran about 3 miles right out of the box and didn’t want to stop. Highly recommend!
P.S. been running on road and trail around the presidio of San Francisco/Baker Beach and they have been holding up nicely.
This shoe is extremely comfy. I’ve had them for about 70 miles now and the end is no where near. I typically need a supportive shoe, (my last few pairs were the zoom fly, lunar glide, and structures) but these are still excellent for my foot. Epic reacts and odyssey reacts don’t work well for me, so if you have a similar running style to mine, these should be great. Fits true to size for Nike, but Nike is always narrower for me. I’m a 9.5 in Nike but a 9 standard sizing. Look incredible on foot, Nike Colors team has done a great job with this shoe. I like bright colors so I got the launch color. However after a 7 mile run and wearing them around a bit longer afterwards, the color bled onto my nice and expensive volt-colored dri-fit running socks! No regrets with buying this shoe at all, just fair warning if you’re going to wear light colored socks.
The Nike Pegasus line of running shoes is the best running shoes I’ve come across. I put a lot of hard miles on my running shoes and tried A LOT of different brands, but the Nike Pegasus shoes are the only ones able to hold up to the abuse. They are incredibly comfortable and I wont run in anything else. Keep up the good work Nike.
Comfortable and well fitting but not durable at all
Very unimpressed I've owned these shoes for about 5 days and I noticed on the the left shoe that a hole has already formed on the toe I've ran once with these shoes on the material is cheesy and I won't be buying another Nike shoe with mesh again
This is my first pair of the Pegasus model and they are awesome! I have been using them for my daily training runs of 5 to 9 miles for the past 2 weeks, I even feel I could wear them for tempo runs and maybe some speed workouts too. The fit is wonderful with a roomy toe box. The attached tongue is nice, means it won't move or bunch up. The inner liner is soft and comfortable. I find the heel cup secure and I find the unique design for the achilles very beneficial. I hope this achilles design becomes a trend with future models, I remember having to cut a notch in the same area of a pair of older lunar racers for my achilles. Overall great shoe right out of the box!
The Air Zoom Pegasus is a great running shoe but hopefully some of the designs will revert back to the 34th edition. As another reviewer noted, the toe box is smaller now. In addition, the new point at the bottom of the back of the shoe should be removed from future versions: the point causes the shoe to not fit properly in foot holders on rowing machines.
I had been running in Pegs since the Pegasus 30's, but last year I searched around for other options after the 34's just didn't work for me. I was excited for the release of the 35's though after hearing all the new updates that were coming - specifically the full-length foam and lighter weight. I fell in love with the shoe after my first run in it. It's padded enough for daily running on concrete, but doesn't feel squishy while running. The responsiveness is great. Almost 2 months of 70 miles per week later, the shoes are still holding up - although I'll probably get new ones within the next couple weeks just to be safe.
For reference, I have had recently the Pegasus 30, 31, 32, 33, and 34. I still wear the 33 and 34. The 31 was ok, the 34 is awesome, I am very happy with it..But this one, is legit. The only issue was all my 34 is an 11.5, which was a bit loose but fine, I could have gone down to 11, and this 35 model I bought in 11 after trying the 11.5 which was HUGE. I could probably get away with a 10.5. If you are in between sizes, go down. It's soft, but not flimsy, light but durable...Very nice features to hug your foot.
I've been running in 34's and I really enjoyed them. They had more room in the toe box in all directions, which I liked. 35 toe box is small and the midsole height is low and not adjustable due to the tongue design. The tongue gussets doesn't stretch as it should because they are sewn in (not sure what the designers were doing). The full length air is a nice upgrade but the foam sole felt a bit too squishy but I can't be certain since I didn't run in them. Returned and purchased some 34's before they ran out of stock.
I have been wearing Nike Pegasus for more years than I can remember and IMO the 35s are a bust. The fit, for the first time, is very different and not at all for me. The upper arch area cannot be adjusted like the previous versions and the front has less lacing slots. In addition to the poor adjustments Nike added design gimmicks that serve no purpose, pointed back ends and heals. This one unfortunately is going back. I hope the 36s are better.
The most comfortable Nike yet. Feels fantastic for All day wear. I do see side panel wrinkles, but I still love them. I plan to buy 2 more colors. I am not a runner. I bought them because they are crazy comfortable and gorgeous.
I have 7 pairs of Pegasus 34s, Adidas Solar Boost, Alpha Bounce and Brooks Glycerin in the closet. Pegasus 35 is the best. Not quite sure about some reviews regarding a too large toe box. I don't feel that at all. The 34s certainly feel as big to me. I am a big guy wearing size 14 so I have plenty of experience with tight toe boxes(no half sizes available for those of us with clown feet). Love the soft, breathable upper. They feel air conditioned, especially compared to the new Solar Boost, which are like wrapping your foot in aluminum foil and oven roasting at 375 degrees.
Just got these in the mail today and am loving them!! Fit is very similar to the Peg 34's, but a much more attractive style and color combo, I went with the Black/Gunsmoke/Oil Grey/White. Excellent ventilation and perfect support for my feet. Like all Nike's, I recommend a half size larger than you'd wear in most shoes. Very happy with these!!
got to say, way to go nike. this is the best version of the Pegasus yet. very stable, light weight and breathable. i hate to say it, but i even prefer these to my nike epic reacts. these will definitely be my go to shoes for training runs. i will say these run very much true to size. i wear an 11 and these are definitely a size 11 in a normal width.
These shoes are great. However, I’m only 16 miles in and the right shoes air pod has already popped. I trust nike but after this I’m not sure anymore. I was on the road but there happened to be a small thorn about 1cm long and that was enough for these to pop. Disappointed
Got my new 35's in the mail this week and was surprised when I slipped them on that they are probably a 1/2 size too big. I've been wearing Pegasus since 32 and loved the slightly more narrow, less toe box room feel of the latest versions as it really fits my foot well. This version, while lighter and with much more cushion in the heel is a decent upgrade from the 34's. I'd recommend trying a pair on first before buying to make sure you get the right size for you as these don't follow the typical "runs smaller/narrower" Nike specs.
