Mo Farah weartesting Nike AIr Zoom Pegasus31

When asked by Nike Mo Farah said 'The Pegasus is one of my favorite shoes and it just keeps getting better.'

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 is 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.
