Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 37 Performance Review

I have long interested in Pegasus and enjoyed the experiences it brought me. So the minute I saw this Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 37, I just couldn’t wait to take a shot and I felt quite honored to show you something regarding this shoe .

Over the past 4 years, I have worn out 10 running shoes, most of which are Nike shoes. Like many runners, I started with the Zoom fly though, it really does a help. It is safe to say that in the past 2 years, Nike has improved a lot and brought a brand-new trend for the running shoes in the market: both the technology of carbon board and the perfect combination of the thick sole and light weight are the highlights pursued by many fans.

For me who is a heavy runner, I feel it hard to manipulate Zoom fly and Next%. So I finally turned to Pegasus which turns out to be an excellent helper.

I can say without exaggeration that the first sight alone of this Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 37 makes me obsessed with it. And chances are that many of you will get impressed with the shoe as well. The overall shape is very smooth and all the details indicate the originality of the designer. Besides, I can tell from the shoes that Nike made great efforts in balancing the functions and the exterior design, making the shoes quite “clever”. But anyway, it is only in the eye of the beholder.

(the asymmetrical toe design is compelling)

(the Zoom and iconic logo in the insoles)

(again, the shoe tongue design is asymmetrical. It is light and wraps well.)

(the two-color midsole is a visual transition and also indicates different materials used in the front and rear parts.)

(the classic heel design)

The upper of Pegasus37 is made of double-density engineering mesh and the toe provides support in part. My feet are relatively wide and after trying the Vomero12 , I ditched the initial thought of buying it. Then I tried this Pegasus37. To be honest, I felt it did not fit my feet very well, neither. And disappointment ensued. But before long, the cloud of disappointment faded away after I started running because the wrapping in the vamp finally replaced the feeling of tightness. And the air permeability of the upper was also excellent, which made me like the shoes all the more.

Pegasus37 is equipped with Zoom air cushion as well as the React foam, and according to official introduction, the thickness of the cushion has been increased and can meet the demand of different gender. During long runs, runners can feel the steady and powerful shock relief which should be credited to the nice setup.

Pegasus37 “succeeded” the classic outsole design of Pegasus series. The texture is clear and the fact is the grip is very nice and satisfying. It is the excellent grip that increases my confidence so that I can even keep on exercising even on wet and slippery roads.

A single shoe weighs 272.6 grams. It is amazing that Nike has done such a tremendous job in this aspect with the thick sole.


Again, subjectively, the Pegasus37 overwhelmed others in its appearance; it also wins a complete victory over Kinvara and Boston with its wrapping. And its cushion is nice though, it is not outstanding. In a nutshell, Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 37 is overall excellent. And I am expecting more surprises of it..
