Nike unveils Air Zoom Pegasus 31

The remastered Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31

The re-engineered Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31 is a result of the Nike design team partnering closely with Mo Farah and leveraging the insights from over 16,000 wear-tested miles logged by runners of all levels.

Nike says much of the design and inspiration for the shoe came from working with, testing and listening to athletes, including Mo Farah, double gold medalist and three-time world champion. When he said he wanted his favorite shoe to be faster, the Nike design team listened and got to work.

“The Pegasus is one of my favorite shoes and it just keeps getting better,” said Mo Farah.  He remembers immediately feeling a difference in the Peg 31 prototype. “The first time I put on the Peg 31, I felt faster off the ground. I loved that snappiness and snug fit combined with the soft cushioning and protection that I need for my 100+ miles a week.”

The latest shoe retains key features loved by loyal Pegasus runners – heel Zoom Air units for a cushioned, quick and responsive ride, a breathable upper and excellent fit. The new design introduces enhancements like a brand new contoured last for streamlined fit, dropped offset (10 millimeters) for a more natural stance, and an engineered midfoot saddle for targeted structure and support.  These changes are designed to provide a better fitting, more natural ride and added toe spring, built-in from the curvature of the toe.

Men’s Running will be testing the shoe in full later this month.
