Nike Pegasus problems - like air max ?

Post by jeff andr » Sat, 26 Aug 1995 04:00:00


As a runner I've usually run in what I call cheap shoes and recently
decided to step up my running to supposedly get a better pair of shoes. I
went into a local running shop and purchased the Pegasus and have 50+
miles; I run 11 miles MWF and 7 TTH so I got most of the 50+ miles in the
first week.

My problem is during the first 1.5 weeks, 50% of my toes have blisters,
developed mild shin splints and now have pain on the outside of my left
knee that kicks in and stays with me for duration of the run. I just had
to take a rest day - don't usually do this mid-week; that's what weekends
are for!

Anyway, after reading of the Air Max problems, am I mixing apples 'n'
oranges assuming that maybe Nike has some problems making their recent
shoes? or am I just facing leg fatigue?

Been running these distances for a while so I believe that my legs are
not the problem.

I've had the same problems with the Air Pegasus.  To make a very
long story short, after using the Air Pegasus for a month, I
needed to have a pair of orthotics to fix the problems it had
caused.

I've haven't had problems ever since with any other brands of shoes.

Lately, I've been wondering if I've came to a hasty conclusion
about the Air Pegasus.  So I've brought them out of storage and
tried then on with my orthotics and I've been feeling pain in my
arch and soreness in my ankles again.  So all I can say is,
the Air Pegasus SUCK.  Don't buy them.

Jason,

I think this is a pretty general reply,  I have an old pair of pegasus
(couldn't run for a couple of years, problem pregnancy, problem delivery,
new baby...)and a new pair of Air Max 2.  

I have noticed that most people stick with a certain brand of shoes
because each brand has a different fit, I can't wear Reeboks, maybe if I
tried them, I would have the same problems you do, they just don't fit
right.

However, for both running and aerobic shoes, Nikes fit me great!  So
maybe Nike just isn't your brand.  

Trish

I agree with Trish. I used my Air Pegasi for 4 years without problem.
They fit me great, and they have adequate padding.  I also just bought a
pair of Air Max Triax, just to see what the higher quality would feel
like.  I like those too, and appreciate the extra padding.  Air Pegasus
don't suck at all.  I would recommend them to anyone who wants a good shoe
for a relatively low price.  They're great shoes if they fit you.  Jason
apparently doesn't have the right feet for the shoes.  Oh well.
