For a not as keen eye as your humble servant, the new Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 39 can pass perfectly as a new color of the previous edition, although it must be clarified that there are so many colors and editions with each version that is also not crazy to confuse them. In addition, several of the most significant changes such as slightly softer cushioning or the addition of the Zoom Air pad at the rear are not visible from the outside. What will undoubtedly be very visible is the inevitable price increase with each update, a classic that is repeated every year for a shoe that is a myth for the popular runner.
After looking at them carefully, it is Clearly, the upper cut seems more elaborate than its predecessor Air Zoom Pegasus 38 with a fabric with different densities depending on the area, a somewhat intrusive reinforcement from where the eyelets where the FlyWire cables terminate, although it maintains a Swoosh oversized and unpadded on the outside. It seems that it will be more breathable with abundant ventilation zones, although it must be the end user who gives his verdict.
The rest of the Air Zoom Pegasus 39 changes slightly so that the fans of the saga can identify it with models from previous years. The midsole is still completely React although in this edition it has a slightly softer feel. The other novelty of the midsole is the return of the Zoom Air pad in the rear part, although knowing how the Oregon brand spends them, they will remove it in a while to put it back on later. Finally, the sole also receives its update with a small redesign of the studs and a second flex groove that improves flexibility and contributes to a more agile transition. Let's for for a run.
