Nike Pegasus 37: The Shoe For Every Runner


There’s a reason this is one of the most popular running shoes out there and the newest version is by far my favorite one yet. The Nike Pegasus has been through many transformations over the years as technology has expanded and runners have become more involved in it’s design.

This shoe is the trusted go-to for runners throughout the world. It is sturdy, made to fit nearly every foot type, and is somehow lightweight enough to wrack up a ton of miles on, while still providing support.

Whether you are a beginner or experienced runner, this is the running shoe for everyone. There’s not much of a learning curve with this shoe, as I’ve found with some of the more technical styles of running shoe that has been put out previously. You can pretty much lace this one up and go.

I took a pair out for a spin this past weekend when we hit mid 70’s for the first time in a while. I ran solo, of course, and was able to put 14 miles on with ease. The heat hit me pretty hard, since Chicago runners aren’t acclimated to the heat yet, but my feet stayed strong and pain free the entire time.

I was able to incorporate some speed work and found that the Pegasus 37 model was stable enough to provide support for the long, slower miles, as well as the fast kick up’s I had planned in the middle mileage of the workout.

I’m so impressed with the versatility of this shoe. Normally I have to switch shoes for my speed and mileage training, but this shoe allowed me to do both in the same workout, comfortably. I highly recommend the Nike Pegasus 37 for all runners, alike. They have a sweet price point of just over $100 and are flexible enough to be used for all of your running workouts. Thanks to Nike for giving us a product that we can all use in our everyday lives right now!

This little dragon agrees the Nike Pegasus 37 is on fire!
