One reviewer who is a long-time Nike Pegasus wearer appreciates the open geometry of the Pegasus.
“The upper is breathable and has that “triangular” shape that I’ve come to expect from the Peg,’ he says. “It is nice and snug at the heel, opens up at the midfoot, and opens up at the toe box.”
He particularly liked the more rounded shape of the toe box in the Peg 38, saying, “The toe box doesn’t taper in too much on the lateral side which is fantastic in reducing the chances of getting any irritation around the little toe.”
The Nike Pegasus 38 uses an engineered mesh upper to provide lightweight breathability to the shoe, creating an overall airy feel on the run.
In addition to the roomy toe box, the updated upper of the Peg 38 gives your foot a nice hug with an internal sockliner, internal heel counter and a cushioned tongue.
“It has a thick padded tongue, supportive cushion around the ankle and the internal heel counter feels really secure,” says one reviewer.
