I finally replaced my trail shoes. This was long overdue as my old pair was way over the expiry date / maximum mileage. They were fantastic and we shared some amazing adventures.
But onto new beginnings! Enter my new Nike Trail Pegasus 29’s! I tried quite a few pairs of other models but when I put these on it was amazing! I think they made these from a mold that was cast from my feet. They are honestly that comfortable.
I've had dozens of Nike Pegasus shoes for the road over the years and they definitely are the best out there for my feet and my style of running. So I’m not totally surprised that I like the trail version as well. But these are the most comfortable shoes I've had on my feet for a long time.
I took them for a good technical workout on Saturday and loved every second in them. Along with fit and comfort a trail shoe also needs to be trusted…trusted to have the right grip at the right time on the right terrain. I could trust all my previous trail shoes on any terrain, dry, wet, rocks, sand, mud or gravel, I knew they would give me the grip I need.
The Nike Pegasus Trail 29 gives me all of the above with the most amazing fit and comfort to go with that. I was surprised and very very pleased! A great ride for sure!
It was one of my coldest runs of the year with an icy wind taking the actual feel well below freezing. But I was happy and had an absolute blast in my new shoes.
