The more I run, the more I notice what works for me and what doesn’t. Some shoes are for stability and great for distances, while others just work great on short distances. The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo Sneakers work well for both long distances and short speed training or races.
About the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo
They are responsive. I have a pair of the Nike Zoom Pegasus 35’s and I thought those were quick shoes. The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo is even quicker.
The shoe is light. It’s much lighter than it looks. The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo was designed for speed. The sole of the shoe is shaped like a rocker and as your foot strikes the ground, it almost excels you forward. I found that the Pegasus 35’s are similar, however, the Turbo’s have a slight advantage and you feel it when you run in these shoes.
The tongue of the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo stays attached to the shoe. The flywire cable provides a snug, secure, and comfortable fit.
The shoe weighs only 6.9 ounces and it has a 10 mm offset, which is important for me since I tend to have an Achilles issue and wearing anything above an 8 mm drop is imperative.
Taking it on the road
I absolutely love these shoes. These are my second pair of Pegasus shoes. The first ones I bought at Paragon in NYC. The draw for me was the 10mm offset. When these shoes arrived at my door, I was thrilled. I knew I would be in love with them because I already love the Pegasus 35’s. However, many times when sneaker companies make an update, it’s not often for the better. The Turbos are for the better!
The difference is the shape of the sole. The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo has the shape of a crescent moon. This helps you glide through the stride and provides a little more bounce than most other sneakers.
Would I recommend these shoes? You betcha! I enjoy running in these shoes and the 10mm drop makes my Achilles feel a little better!
You can get these shoes online or at any major retailer.
