Nike Pegasus Trail 2 Running Shoe Review

Nike just dropped the new Pegasus Trail 2 – this is a React foam based trail running shoe. It looks good, but what’s the practical difference between this and all the other trail running shoes that Nike has? (Like the Wildhorse 6, Terra Kiger 6, and Pegasus 36 Trail?) That’s what we’ll talk about here in our hands on review. We’ll also compare it to another running shoe that has a lot of React foam. Here’s the styles now available (We are a Road Runner Sports affiliate): Let’s dive in and take a look at this trail runner. Nike Pegasus Trail 2 – YouTube Review Why read when you can watch?

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail Running Shoe Review

Recently Nike revised the trail shoe version of their Pegasus 36 line of running shoes. The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail Running Shoe is a moderate option for an off-pavement trail running shoe. What do we mean by that? That’s what we’ll discuss in this review. Where can you get it? Road Runner Sports: All right, let’s take a look. Nike Air Zoom Pegasus Trail Running Shoe Hands On Review on YouTube We featured this shoe as part of our Nike Trail Shoe Shootout 2020: Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail Running Shoe – Sizing, Fit, and Feel This shoe runs true to size. My normal size is a Men’s 11 – and this shoe fits perfect in that size. That said, as with many of Nike’s running shoes, it is not a wide shoe. So, if you have wide feet, you may need to go 1/2 size up. On the upside, there’s probably a few brick and mortar retail stores you can find this shoe in – so we’d recommend you try it on first, if possible. (That [Read more …]

It’s specialized for off-pavement running (or walking) on rough terrain. Trail running shoes normally have deep, boot-like lugs on the outsole – for maximum traction. You can see the Terra Kiger 6 has an aggressive tread pattern with deep lugs – as you’d expect.

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail Running Shoe – Quick Look

Let’s take a quick look at an excellent trail running shoe – the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail. It’s available in a fresh new colorway: Aura/Light Armory Blue/Mint Foam/Blackened Blue. That’s a mouthful, but the important point – it looks good. It is officially known as Style AR5677-401, by the way. Where can you get it? Road Runner Sports: This is a trail running shoe – and that means it’s meant for off-pavement running. Trade the pavement for the path with the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail.
