Running shoe release: Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31

Nike_Air_Zoom_Pegasus_31_m_profile_30186 are delighted to announce that the re-engineered Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31, a remastering of one of the most iconic running shoes ever, debuts today.

The Pegasus 31 is a result of the Nike design team partnering closely with Mo Farah and leveraging the insights from over 16,000 wear-tested miles logged by runners of all levels.

As always, much of the design and inspiration for the shoe came from working with, testing and listening to athletes, including Mo Farah, double gold medalist and three-time world champion.

When he said he wanted his favourite shoe to be faster, the Nike design team listened and got to work.


“The Pegasus is one of my favourite shoes and it just keeps getting better,” said Mo Farah, whose go-to training shoe is the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus.  He remembers immediately feeling a difference in the Peg 31 prototype.


“The first time I put on the Peg 31, I felt faster off the ground. I loved that snappiness and snug fit combined with the soft cushioning and protection that I need for my 100+ miles a week.”

The new Pegasus feels faster and more responsive than any version in its impressive 31-year heritage. The latest shoe retains key features loved by loyal Pegasus runners – heel Zoom Air units for a cushioned, quick and responsive ride, a breathable upper and excellent fit.


The new design introduces enhancements like a brand new contoured last for streamlined fit, dropped offset (10 millimeters) for a more natural stance, an engineered midfoot saddle, designed to provide ultimate lockdown while under the foot, and an all new crash rail outsole to provie a smooth transition for any type of foot strike.

These changes provide a better fitting, more natural ride and added toe spring, built-in from the curvature of the toe.

Zoom Air cushioning is engineered to be highly responsive and quick off the ground.

The unique responsiveness of Zoom Air comes from tightly stretched tensile fibres woven inside a pressurized Nike Air unit.


Upon impact, Zoom Air tensile fibres release their tension and then snap back to their original state, generating responsive, snappy, propulsion.

The Air Zoom Pegasus 31 is part of a collection of Zoom Air running shoes that also includes the Nike Air Zoom Streak, Nike Air Zoom Elite, Nike Air Zoom Structure and Nike Air Zoom Vomero.


With Zoom Air, the result is a fast, cushioned ride whether the runner is out for a morning run or a marathon personal best.
