Nike Air Zoom Percept
More responsive and more stable than the Pegasus, and if you have trouble with fit around the toes it’s worth a look.

Our Review

Nike says this women’s shoe is the "big sister to the Air Pegasus", and it’s certainly one of the softest shoes in this guide. A beveled outer edge at the heel (the impact area), allied to soft foam where the shoe first hits the ground, is designed to slow pronation ...  Continue reading

After trying several makes, and suffering with various nasty niggles I decided to try these shoes. Am now really enjoying pain free running again, and am starting to up my mileage. Would recommend them to any Continue reading...
Love them so far because my orthotics are suited and I feel confident that I will not blister Continue reading...

Look like they might be targeted at Pegasus ? Will have to wait till my local JJB has them in ;-)

I bought a pair of these yesterday. I am neutral runner (found that out yesterday!!) and tried on about 5 shoes during my foot assessment (thank you Sweatshop, Reading!) including Brooks, New Balance and Adidas.

I preferred the cushioning on the Nike best, although New Balance came a close second - both feel very soft inside. The Nike and the New Balance came in at the same price.

Road tested the Nike today and they are excellent. I have been wearing Asics for a year and the difference is massive (to me anyway). The Asics feel 'hard', but then I like to feel cushioned.

Hope that helps,

Thanks, I will have a go in some when I find a shop with some in stock, in a 9.5 (which automatically excludes JJB).

Don't know if you have managed to get a pair of these yet in a size 9.5 but just thought I'd let you know that I have just bought a pair but have not tried them out yet as they only arrived today. Am walking about the house with them on and at least they feel good! They feel like you can really get up on your toes with them and they feel really cushioned so will give it a couple of days before giving them a test drive on a short run.I take a size 9 and managed to get mine from The Runners Shop in Beckenham, Kent(020 8663 0630).The guy called Mark was really helpful as although their website( they had my size in stock, they didn't but Mark very kindly ordered a pair from Nike in Belgium for me.Give them a call as this is the only shop that I have found that does womens shoes bigger than a size 8 and if they don't have it in stock they seem to be quite willing to order it for you.The customer service that I have had recently from other shops in regards to ordering shoes in my size has been quite pathetic resulting in either being sent mens size 9 or completely the wrong shoe and then having to ring several times to get my money refunded. Give Runners Shop a call. Good luck.

I absolutely love mine.

I tried some at the expo and the fit was good but the heel seemed too soft and it felt like my heel was trying to bend over something every time it stuck.

Sorry, just ralised I am talking about the Vomero. Did try the precept but can't remember what they were like only that there was nothing on the nike stand for me.
