I have run in Nike Air Pegasus for years and been very happy. Tried Nike Zoom and Brooks but always ended up going back to Pegasus...however, I'm thinking I might fancy a change of brand..so can anyone recommend a trainer similar to Nike Air Pegasus for support, bounciness etc?
(as an overweight runner Brooks just weren't bouncy enough for me and Zoom were too bouncy...I'm like a fat Goldilocks!)
If it ain't broke don't fix it!
Unless you're looking to change technique i.e. changing from heel/midfoot/forefoot striking to something else, why change something that you're happy with?

hmm...yep, maybe you're right...I just really like the look of Adidas BUT they only get covered in mud after 2wks anyway don't they?
I tried shifting away from Nike Structure Triax / Nike Pegasus (I flip between the two depending upon weight - if I'm carrying a few extra pounds I wear the structure for the better support / motion control) last year into Adidas - they didn't suit my gait, and I ended up picking up a piriformis injury as a result. The minute I cast them aside and went back to the trusty Nikes the injury went away.
Now I will never consider anything other than Nikes - I too have learnt the lesson 'If it's not broke don't fix it!'
