    By Pam

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Womens Nike Air Pegasus + 26 Running Shoe:

    The Nike Air Pegasus has been my goto running shoe for several years now. Several pairs of both the +2007 and +25 model have kept me injury free while training for 2 marathons and multiple shorter races. Unfortunately, the changes in the +26 are not favorable. The height of the toe box is now much lower causing the fabric to rub on the tops of my toes. I am so disappointed that I have to search for a new running shoe. Sadly, I will be returning this model.

    Comments about Womens Nike Air Pegasus + 26 Running Shoe:

    I've worn Nike Air Pegasus for many years, but the +26 seems to have a wider heel, causing heel slippage problems. Not sure if it's coincidence, but suddenly having knee problems while wearing these new shoes.

    Comments about Womens Nike Air Pegasus + 26 Running Shoe:

    I've purchased the Pegasus for the last four years, and the +26 is a great immprovement on a sound product. It is lightweight, and perfect for us runners with high arches and boney feet. I am also a supinator, and I find its support is exceptional. I took advice from a friend who had purchased the latest model, and got the 1/2 size up, only to go back and get my true size. I felt the 1/2 size larger was too loose, and I noticed the heel/ankle support rubbing too much. I don't have that problem at all with my true size. The Pegasus is truly the best running shoe. I have worn Sauconys, Asics, Mizunos, Brooks and other Nikes, and I always go back to the Pegasus. I currently run 2-3 miles daily during the week, a 3.5 one day and a longer (4-8) miler on the weekend, and I can usually stretch mine for a year. Even training hard-core for a full marathon, so averaging 30-mile weeks, they've lasted nearly a year! Perfect shoe.

      Comments about Womens Nike Air Pegasus + 26 Running Shoe:

      I have been wearing Pegasus for a long time except when they took a break from them. I was excited in 2002 when they brought them back as most my running injuries knee (ITB) and foot (plantar fasciiitis) went away again while running in the Pegasus. I am an avid runner including training for multiple distances. I am a supinator with a fairly rigid foot. I found these wider in the heel and toe box with not as much support in the mid foot, although i am wearing them i have felt the tightness in my feet coming back. I wish Nike would stop changing these shoes. Might have to search again for another shoe to replace them, disappointed.

      I have always loved Nike Pegasus shoes
      but this model is rubbing against the sides of my small toes and giving me painful blisters. I even tried the wide width.

        I wear these shoes with my arch supports, love the cushion and dependability. Tried on other shoes for my next pair...nothing better then these! They don't rub on heel and have good support. I run mostly on the road, so I am unsure how they would run on the trails.

                I have tried many different shoes and I always come back to Air Pegasus. They are so comfortable and accomodate my narrow feet. I have run two marathons in the Air Pegasus and I would not trust another shoe for that long of a race.

                  Switched from ASICS Cumulus line (after 4 or 5 pair), looking for a change. Reasonably comfortable, but less forefoot cushioning than the Cumulus. Have not tried on a long run yet, so don't know if that will be critical. Arch support is good. Overall, a decent neutral shoe, but not sure I'd buy again.

                    I am a long distance runner and in addition, take a variety of gym classes (Step, Pump (full body weight training), Attack (high impact aerobics), Spin (cycling) and Combat (mixed martial arts). The Nike Air Pegasus is GREAT for running and has been great for all of my other classes. I love this shoe and buy multiple pairs each time I order. I am glad Nike does not drastically change this shoe (besides small upgrades) as they do with some other shoes.

                      I love these shoes. They feels like I have pillows on my feet. I think they are slightly on the wide side but with the usual inserts I put in all my running shoes they are great. I would definatly buy them again.

                      I have bought the Nike Air Pegasus for years! It is one of the running shoes that has the most value for its dollar. I have a number of foot related issues, but these shoes provide the support and comfort to keep me running. These shoes have gotten me through my university cross country team trainings and training for a half-marathon.

                          I run almost daily and I've tried other shoes, but always come back to the Air Pegasus. I perfer when they don't have the mesh at the toe area, but that's because I tend to lift my big toe up when I run and it eventually will wear a hole in the mesh.

                            I really like this shoe. I run in a hot, humid climate, and this shoe really breathes. It doesn't feel too heavy, but the sole has excellent traction. The shoe fits my foot snugly, but not too tightly. I am also excited about using the Nike and iPod insert that syncs with my Nano. There is a spot in one of the shoes under the insert to put the sensor in. I think that using this technology will be a real asset in my training.

                            disliked Nike's because they are normally very narrow (i have wide feet) I can run in these 20+ miles a week with no problems! great shoe!

                              I run on the roads, on dirt streets, as well as sand and dirt trails and have found this shoe performs well on all terrains. The Pegasus has enough cushion to be comfortable on the road, but enough stability to be great on the trails.

                              Love these shoes! I have high arches but don't like a heavy shoe. I've been using Asics Cumulus, Mizuno wave rider, etc, and haven't found the perfect shoe... until now! Very comfy.

                              I've worn Nike Air Pegasus for many years, but the +26 seems to have a wider heel, causing heel slippage problems. Not sure if it's coincidence, but suddenly having knee problems while wearing these new shoes.

                              The Nike Air Pegasus has been my goto running shoe for several years now. Several pairs of both the +2007 and +25 model have kept me injury free while training for 2 marathons and multiple shorter races. Unfortunately, the changes in the +26 are not favorable. The height of the toe box is now much lower causing the fabric to rub on the tops of my toes. I am so disappointed that I have to search for a new running shoe. Sadly, I will be returning this model.

                              I have always loved Nike Pegasus shoes but this model is rubbing against the sides of my small toes and giving me painful blisters. I even tried the wide width.

                              This shoe doesn't have enough forefoot cushioning for me, plus it hurt my knees and feet for any run over 3 miles.

                              I've been switching shoes for a while - Gel Landreth, Asics Cumulus, Mizuno Wave Precision. These Pegasus have the best cushioning of the past few shoes I've tried. The sole is not ultra flexible, but that's the only drawback.

                              after reading reviews on this shoe I thought i'd give them a try. I just got back from a 7 mile run and I felt as if I was wearing heavy clonkers.They are not true to size. Iwear a 61/2 and I felt as if they were a size too big. The shoe ks way too heavy and my heal slides.

                              I have worn Pegasus for a long time, but I was thinking about changing to something else after the Pegasus 25 (3 pair), but after wearing the Pegasus 26 just once I can already tell they are a big improvement. The cushioning is much better!! Please NIKE do not change them again!!!

                              I haven't worn a shoe this comfortable since the Vomero 2. I supinate slightly and have very high arches and narrow heels (but normal forefoot width). I have a terrible time finding shoes that do not aggravate my plantar faciitis or my knees and these do neither. They fit nice and snug through the arch and they are freakishly lightweight. I just hope Nike doesn't go and change them next year!

                              Great SHOES! Definitely a stepped up from the Pegasus 25, more cushion and TRUE TO SIZE! Great for short runs, I do 7-10miles easily but I wouldn't use them for my long distance. Flexible and light for training.
