Nike Zoom Pegasus 36 Initial Runs Video Review with Comparisons to Pegasus 35 and Vomero 14

Article by Sam Winebaum

Nike Zoom Pegasus 36 ($120)
Stack Height: 28 mm heel / 18 mm forefoot, 10 mm drop
The highlights of the 36th edition of the Pegasus are a 0.4 oz / 12 g drop in weight to just under 9 oz / 252 g brought about by effective changes to the upper.
Nike achieved this weight drop by effectively slimming down the rear of the shoe's collar padding, getting rid of the painfully snug extended  padded tongue and opening the fit by having the FlyWire enter further down the sides of the mid foot.

There are no noted changes to midsole or outsole but I did notice a very, very slightly more flexible, softer, and bouncier ride for Peg 36  when running Peg 35 on one foot and Peg 36 on the other. The ride remains classic Pegasus.

I tested the Pegasus 36 on one foot and the Pegasus 35 on the other and detail the differences in construction, fit, and ride while also comparing to the Zoom Vomero 14 (RTR Review), my 2018 Shoe of the Year,

Yes Sam. When I ran in the Peg 35s I didn't lace them up. Hell I loosened them all up to the point where they were just there for decorative effect and they were still tight!

Forefoot needs way more cushion. Since it seems we're the only ones who see eye to eye on the Peg 35, you have become my trusted source for shoe reviews.

Thank you!

Thanks for the review!

Are you also going to review the trail version of the new Pegasus (Pegasus 36 Trail)?
I - and I assume also a lot of your reader - would be particularly interested in a comparison of the Pegasus 36 Trail, Kiger 5, and Wildhorse 5.

Thanks and cheers, Jay
