Nike has just introduced a brand new runner to the game with the unveiling of the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo. The shoe is inspired by the dominant Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite and 4% marathon shoes, and employs the same highly responsive ZoomX foam in the midsole and also taking on the same aerodynamic shape of the heel.
The shoe was designed based on feedback from Olympic gold medalist and marathoner Eliud Kipchoge, who desired a shoe with the magic of the 4%, but created for daily use. The Peg Turbo does exactly that, helping runners train for the podium every day.
THREE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT NIKE ZOOMX FOAM
- It delivers 85 percent energy return — the greatest of any Nike foam.
- It’s also Nike’s lightest foam (a single men’s size 10 shoe weighs in at 8.4 oz while a women’s 8 is 6.9 oz).
- It’s currently used in three silhouettes: the aforementioned Zoom Vaporfly Elite (which was worn by Breaking2 athletes) and Zoom Vaporfly 4% and now the Zoom Pegasus Turbo.
The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo will be available July 19 for NikePlus members in the U.S., China, Japan, Germany, U.K. and Brazil via the Nike and NRC apps. In France, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands it will be available via the Nike app only.
The shoe will release globally August 2 on nike.com and at select retailers.
