Nike has revealed its latest running silhouette, with an upgraded Turbo version of the Zoom Pegasus sneaker. The update comes in response to feedback from elite runners — including Eliud Kipchoge — with new features added to improve the silhouette.
The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo is similar to other Nike sneakers — notably the Zoom Vaporfly Elite and 4% — due to its use of a responsive ZoomX midsole and aerodynamic heel. One difference with the other sneakers is the removal of a carbon-fiber plate, which is used for propulsion in races but isn’t necessary in day-to-day running. Other features include a layer of Nike React foam for durability, a specially-designed heel collar and a thick racing stripe down the middle of the sneaker.
The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo will be available for NikePlus members in the U.S., China, Japan, Germany, U.K. and Brazil on July 19, before getting a general release on August 2.
