Air Zoom Pegasus 33
10.80 oz. (306 gram)
For a long time now, the Nike Pegasus series have remained one of Nike’s staple running shoes and is probably one of the best-selling running shoes year after year. The Pegasus 33 does not differ much from the Pegasus 32 in look. Essentially, it has a neater and more streamlined appearance.
The Zoom Air Unit is the most obvious update of the Pegasus and I really love the addition of the extra Zoom Air unit to the forefoot of the Nike Pegasus 33. It gave the shoe a nice pop under the ball of my foot.
In general, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 33 offers a neutral, cushioned ride that can withstand fast paced running, high mileage, as well as daily training. It is aesthetically pleasing to the eyes and lightweight – weighs 10.8oz and has a 10mm heel to toe drop. This is pretty common for Nikes shoes so it came as no surprise. Last year, a seamless upper with “Flywire” technology was added to the Pegasus which is also present in the new version. Its no-sew toe overlay also makes for a lasting wear, smooth ride, and versatility.
Given the trend of today’s running shoes market, this shoe breaches the gap between minimalists and maximalists.
Below is a list of the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Nike zoom Pegasus 33 running shoe based on my objective opinion:
• Fast and Versatile
The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 33 (Men’s/Women’s) Running Shoe provides a perfect fit, fast feel and responsive cushioning that will help you pick up the pace and focus on your speed. Flex grooves allow natural range of motion Waffle pistons on the outsole for multi-surface traction
• Responsive Cushioning
The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 33’s soft cushion midsole provides a soft, responsive and springy ride which adds proper cushioning and support to your feet for each step you take.
• Secure Comfortable Upper
A consistent fit with engineered mesh allows for breathability, while ultralight, super-strong Flywire cables provide incredible support. The heel is designed to support your natural range of motion and the outsole works to absorb impact and cushion on contact for a soft, smooth transition.
• Retroreflective Heel
Nike made efforts to add some retroreflective elements to the heel of the Air Zoom Pegasus 33 shoe that are pretty sleek and almost undetectable. Once light hits the heel of the shoe, it lights up.
Compared to last year’s model, the Nike Zoom Pegasus 33 is a little on the heavier side.
The Nike Zoom Pegasus 33 is a great neutral trainer, neutral, versatile and capable of handling high mileage daily training. It provides a slight upgrade from the previous model and is sure to please most runners.
