Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 Review


Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 is a neutral-cushioned road running shoe that works well with both beginner and experienced runners. Featured by OutdoorGearLab, a leading outdoor gear review site, as the best buy among running shoes, The Pegasus 34 delivers a fast and responsive ride which help the athlete go even faster. Not only that, majority of the users of this shoe indicated that it’s extremely comfortable through tough roads and doesn’t require breaking in.

Designed for daily road running, the Pegasus 34 maintains its tried-and-true cushioning and support found in all models of the Pegasus line. This 34th edition now has a lighter yet supportive Plymesh upper for advanced cooling that can prevent your foot from overheating as you go for those extra miles. 

If you’re a runner with healthy amount of pronation (neutral pronation) or one with high arch and supination, the Pegasus 34 is the running shoe for you because it has full support for neutral to supination. This shoe has been engineered specifically to provide excellent cushioning and shock absorption.

The ones that should avoid this shoe are severe overpronators because it doesn’t have the much needed arch support for stabilizing the foot if it rolls too far inward.
