Compared to other shoes of the same price I have tried - these are the best - will certainly go for another pair Continue reading...
I've had three pairs of these. the first pair were excellent and very long lasting. But the other two pairs only lasted less than 300 miles before the soles colllapsed, lost all cushioning and started to squeek Continue reading...
Great shoe. No rubbing, no blisters, no soreness. Excellant value and definitely keeps with the more expensive brands in terms of quality, design and fit Continue reading...
A good overall shoe, doesn't feel hugely cushioned when you put them on but what ever's in them works as they're comfy over long distances. Continue reading...
Well you cant knock the price (£60 RRP)for a shoe of this quality. The temptation maybe to go for a more expensive shoe thinking that you will get better quality, but that hasn't been my experience.
The style Continue reading...


They do not have the women's version of the shoe at Nike Town in London yet - and staff there do not seem to have a clue when they are likely to start stocking them.
Has anyone already bought them? Are they any good?

One running specialist shop I spoke to said it was "moving away" from Nike products due to the company's politics....

From experience if you order Persus from that bunch, they sent you Pegasus.

Try somewhere else. Sportshoes are good.

Great name for a running shoe......

If I wasn't a Kayano man I might be tempted.

Posted: 10/03/2004 at 15:31

Thanks - does Sweatshop have them in women's sizes? eg 5?
Start Fitness seems to only have men's sizes....

Posted: 10/03/2004 at 15:39

Sweatshop in Maidstone ...great shoe, I have used on all training inc a 20mile steady last Sun.....real nice ride

Posted: 10/03/2004 at 16:00

yes, mens and womens.

wonder why so many retailers only have them in the mens? seems a bit strange, especially niketown!

Posted: 10/03/2004 at 16:24

Great - thanks.

Posted: 10/03/2004 at 16:31

I have 2 pairs and they are fantastic shoes I got mine from Run and Become ..No sweatshop in Wales;-)Great for marathon training a really smooth comfy ride.

I can't believe how little the staff in NikeTown seem to know about the products they sell (or don't sell, as the case may be!)

Bought myself some Nike Perseus yesterday from Sweatshop - who definitely stock women's sizes.

Posted: 15/03/2004 at 13:27

Quite - they don't seem to have any specialised people who can advise on shoes or indeed who actually know which shoes are available. Last time I'll bother with that store I think. Too big anyway ...

Posted: 15/03/2004 at 13:51

Might be all gone by now but Tiso were selling them for £25 a pair recently - unfortunately not in my size.

Posted: 16/03/2004 at 16:54

Who or what is Tiso?£25 a pair sounds ridiculous!!!!

Posted: 18/03/2004 at 11:01

It's an outdoor specialist shop. Mostly has stores in Scotland and Northern Ireland, but one in London - Selfridges.

Posted: 18/03/2004 at 11:15

sensible, how on earth can this company be selling these shoes at £25?!

Posted: 18/03/2004 at 14:20

Beats me!!!They must have got them from unofficial sources at a guess?Will try and hunt them down and find out if its definitely the same shoe??

Posted: 18/03/2004 at 23:12

I can understand all the uncertainty; but just to reitterate; partner & I were in Tiso in Edinburgh city centre (all be it some weeks ago)and she got Nike Air Pegasus for £25 - the real thing. But like you, I only wish I could've got a pair. I then phoned every Tiso shop in Scotland but never had my size. Good luck 'hunting'.

Posted: 19/03/2004 at 08:58

yeah, but we're talking Perseus here - not Pegasus.

Posted: 19/03/2004 at 09:08

Anne, oops.

Posted: 19/03/2004 at 09:15

well, they ARE a bit similar. Anyway, Pegasus at 25 quid is pretty good! Shame I didn't spot them when I was in Edinburgh Tiso last weekend!

Posted: 19/03/2004 at 09:22

Come on, get the name right will ya.

Do I look like a winged creature?

Well do I?

Posted: 19/03/2004 at 12:08

That might explain how they are selling shoes for 25 quid.Still need to find out where these shops are as I still dont know how they are getting the shoes.

Posted: 19/03/2004 at 23:04


Gives details of where all the outlets are.
I shall be going to the one in London this weekend so will see if they really are selling cheapo shoes!

Posted: 20/03/2004 at 10:24

Start Fitness are selling the Perseus at £55 (link on RHS ====>)

Posted: 22/03/2004 at 10:51

I bought a pair of Perseus yesterday from sweatshop, took them out for there first run tonight, I did seven miles in them and have to say they're an excellent shoe.

Could I have finally found a replacement shoe for the Omni2's???

Posted: 22/03/2004 at 21:03

yeah - I finally got them from Sweatshop, had a six mile run in them this morning and thought they were pretty good.

Posted: 22/03/2004 at 21:09

Couldnt find those 25 quid pegasus on!!!!!Can anyone help?

Posted: 23/03/2004 at 18:05

My fiance just bought a pair this morning after reading Runners World, we've just been out on a 6k run, very good shoe indeed!

M&M Sports Nike Womens Air Perseus Running Shoe Blue/White M&M Price: £49.99

Sizes in stock: 4, 4.5, 5, 5.5, 6, 6.5, 7, 7.5, 8

I have been thinking about getting it myself!

Posted: 30/11/2004 at 23:15

Got 2 pairs of these now, only trouble I am having is that the inner soles have come lose on both of them so am having to glue them back in place! Any suggestions as to why this is happening? Both pairs are under 1 yr old....


Posted: 26/04/2005 at 08:52

The inner soles are removable in most running shoes - to allow for people who wear orthotics. Are they moving around/bunching up when you run, or just coming out when you remove the shoes?

I can't compare with my Perseus, as I wear orthotics and took the inner soles out as soon as I got the shoes.

Posted: 26/04/2005 at 10:25

they bunch up at the back, leaving me with a rather uncomfortable run.

The superglue appears to have solved this problem for the time being.

Posted: 27/04/2005 at 18:22

Just to clear up, Tiso are getting their shoes through the correct suppliers. I was not aware of this information at the time so apologise for any confusion

Posted: 27/04/2005 at 19:11

I have around 8 pairs of persus and never ever had a problem with insoles.
