Customer Reviews

Comments: I have been a loyal buyer of Pegasus since they were re-released, always enjoying a heavier more substantial shoe with plenty of cushioning for long road miles. But the 31's are basically just a stiffer version of the Free's. Which is exactly the opposite of what I'm looking for. Sorry Nike but you got sucked in to the latest fad and ruined one of your best lines of shoes. I'll be logging miles in your competitor's shoes.

Comments: I have been a Pegasus fan for years, but this is my favorite. In the past, I have used the Pegasus for long runs and a flat (Zoom Streak or Lunarspider LT) for speed work and short distance (10k and below) races. However, this Nike Pegasus 31 is a game changer. The lower offset, lighter weight, snug (but not tight or narrow) fit, and firmer more responsive cushioning all combine to make this iteration of the Pegasus feel fast. Past versions of this shoe could feel clunky and too soft. Not anymore! There's still plenty of cushion here to use them for long pavement runs, but this new fast feel and comfort make me want to keep them on for races. Well done, Nike! This is my GOAT running shoe.
From: Gio, Irvine, CA, USA. October 22nd 2014

Comments: This is the 3rd or 4th version of this shoe that I have worn. I am 6'5" 200# and run about 20 miles per week. This shoe is different than the 29th and 30th versions of this shoe. The arch and mid-foot area are different and there is less support. Feels like there is less arch. The shoe looks cooler, but not enough for me to keep wearing them. My feet hurt after 40 miles in these shoes. I'm off to another brand. Too much change Nike. Bummer.
From: BIGJ, Cincinnati, OH, USA. September 28th 2014

Comments: This shoe is flat out awesome. It oozes performance, doesn't feel squishy. Feels secure around the foot, not constrictive. It is apparent Nike put some R&D into this reboot. Very impressed.
From: Chris, Perrysburg, OH, USA. August 6th 2014

Comments: It's been years since I've run in a Nike shoe, but decided to give the Peg 31 a try. It fits true to size and provides a smooth, responsive ride - not too soft, just firm enough, with a skosh of stability. I like; it's a nice complement to the WR17 in my closet. Depending on how it holds up, the Pegasus could become a regular.
From: Bruce, Davie, FL, USA. July 7th 2014

Comments: I bought the Pegasus 31 the day it was released. I've put over 70 miles on them since. While I love the looks and their comfort when I slip them on. I cant run more than 5 miles in them without some unusual pain in my feet. I average about fifty miles per week, in everything from flats to neutral trainers like the Boston, 890, even the Peg 29. I am a supinator or underpronator and it feels like the midsole on the 31 collapses on the lateral edge but firms up on the medial side. It feels like a stability shoe to me. 36819Hoping the Zoom Elite 7 will work better for me.

Comments: One again Nike has made the "D" width toe box too narrow and gives me no option but to switch shoes after running in Pegasus since the 2nd version in the early 80's. So, have switched to the Mizuno "Sayonara" which says it all. Good Bye Pegasus it's been good.
From: Daniel, Sioux Falls, SD, USA. June 25th 2014

Comments: Great version of this shoe, I highly recommend it. I had the Peg 29's for 2 years and really liked them, but the 31 is now my favorite all-around trainer. The Pegasus 31 has great attention to detail and appeals to my appreciation of classic running shoe design - the shoe is not overdone at all. The features are minimal and subtle, but very effective... Footbed and upper are comfortable and feel durable. For me they fit perfectly and suit my form quite well. I'm 41 and run 20-25 miles per week, mostly roads and gravel trails.
From: Mac, Pittsburgh, PA, USA. June 17th 2014

Comments: The 31 is amazing, best Peg yet. When I first put them on my initial thought was these are more comfortable than my Free Run 2's, that is not possible! But it's true, like someone else said they disappear on your feet. The 10mm drop feels perfectly natural, much faster shoe than the 29 and 30 certainly. The only problem is, I still have a few pair of 29's and 30's I need to burn through! Phenomenal, well done Nike.
From: Arturo, Ashburn, VA, USA. June 11th 2014

Comments: So glad I ordered a replacement pair of 29's these look like crap
From: Anonymous. June 9th 2014

Comments: This shoe is awesome. Much more responsive and fast feeling than the 29 or 30. The shoe feels like it has lower drop, too, maybe 10mm instead of 12 or 13, which helps with the transition. I think Nike hit a home run here, the shoe just disappears on my feet.
