Editor’s Notes: After upgrading its Zoom Fly line earlier in the year, Nike has now taken the Air Pegasus (originally released in 1983 as a versatile runner) to the next level. The result is the Zoom Pegasus Turbo, which features the Swoosh’s highly responsive (and exclusive) ZoomX foam. The only two other silhouettes to utilize the ZoomX foam technology are the Zoom Vaporfly 4% and then Zoom Vaporfly Elite.
Unlike the aforementioned silhouettes, the Zoom Pegasus Turbo doesn’t include the carbon-fiber plate, due to feedback from runners that it provides too much propulsion for every day use.
To highlight just how fast this sneaker is, Nike designers put a thick racing stripe right down the middle of the Zoom Pegasus Turbo, giving off very obvious racing car vibes.
