As early as 1983, Nike launched its first Pegasus model. It had the designation Air in front of the model name and was one of the first shoe models for running that Nike designed with an encapsulated gas cushion in the midsole. Nike Pegasus 38 Review.

In the first years, this shock-absorbing unit was placed in the heel of the shoe, but eventually, it formed a larger part of the midsole and reached all the way to the forefoot. Since last year’s version, Nike has chosen to place it only in the forefoot – which is also the case in this 38th version.

Today, the technology is called Zoom Air and consists of a completely flat, gas-filled shock-absorbing cushion that provides a quick response in the kick-off (the Zoom Air unit has a slightly higher gas pressure in the men’s version compared to the women’s model).

The midsole consists, just as before, of Nike’s light and resilient React foam, but the thickness of the sole platform has increased somewhat. Other updates from version 37 are subtle and are limited to a new upper material that provides better space in the forefoot and a more padded tongue.

The Nike Pegasus 38 clearly holds up and is still an excellent all-around model that works well on both faster sessions and quiet rides. Thanks to the outsole’s classic waffle pattern, the Nike Pegasus 38 also gives a good grip on most surfaces.
