which to buy
I do some light trail running and both of these are the same price, so was wondering which do you think is better and why? thanks.
I've used the Pegasus 28, trail and normal. The trail ones have better grip off-road, especially if the ground is wet. They also keep the water out quite well, although if you run through a puddle you'll still get wet feet.
Downsides to the trail version - they're not as breathable, so you get sweaty feet if it's warm and you do a long run. They're also not as good on road, feel slightly less cushioned.
I mostly use the trail version as my parkrun shoes. I've also done a couple of off-road 10Ks in them. My long training runs are usually a mixture of road of trail (in the dry) and I prefer the regular version for those.
One other point, I recently bought a pair of normal Pegasus 29's and I'm not getting on with them as well as I did with the 28's. Gone back to the 28's for the moment, going to try a pair of Brooks Ghost 5.
