Air Pegasus vs Air Analog?

Post by Esmail Bonakdari » Fri, 24 Sep 1993 02:54:36


I've decided to get a pair of new shoes. I've been using my trusted
Nike Air Pegasus for a while and was going to get another pair, but
I just discovered the Air Analog. They have an air pocket under the
ball of foot, which seems would add additional cushining which is what
I want.

Anyone know of any other significant difference between these two models?

Also, I currently wear 8.5 EE (EE -> wide), a sales clerk told me that
the Analog doesn't come in EE sizes, can anyone confirm this?

Finally, what is NIKE's phone number?

Thanks,

Esmail

Major significant difference: the Analog has a full-foot Phylon midsole,
while the Pegasus has Phylon in the forefoot and a polyurethane wrap in
the back. In plain English, the Analog is lighter but if you are a heavy
runner, it will break down faster. Also, the Analog has a plastic stability
device which is unnoticable to my feet but has not yet aggrivated my knees
so it must work.

The salesman was trying to dodge the fact that he simply didn't have the
shoes. The Air Analog and the Air Pegasus are the two Nike running shoes
that come in widths, including a EE (although the new Air Structure IIs
are supposed to come in widths also.) You may have to order them, but the
Analog does indeed come in a wide size.

: Finally, what is NIKE's phone number?

If I remember correctly, try 1-800-344-NIKE. (I may have the 344 part wrong
but it sounds right.) This is a fairly busy line, so expect to hold.

So what other shoes that I don't know about come in EE?
I've run exclusively in New Balance shoes for the past
ten years partly because I thought they were the only guys
who made shoes wide enough for my feet.

The Nike wide sizes are not as wide as the New Balance EE shoes.

Asics makes 'wide' shoes, but I've never found a pair to try on.
