This model may still be available on clearance. But we've reviewed a newer version since we published this.

Weight 330g
Evaluation While soft, easy-riding shoes elicit a love-it or hate-it response, Nike’s super-cushy Air Pegasus has certainly been turning on the charm with plenty of runners over the last year. The Storm Pegasus is the winterised version, with a water-resistant upper and a studded outsole.
It’s fine on dry pavement – a very similar fit and smooth ride to the original Pegasus – but it’s at its best off-road. Like many lugged outsoles, the deeper version of Nike’s waffle outsole can slip on wet pavement, but it grips splendidly in mud. The midsole has also been firmed up slightly for the trails, where you don’t need as much cushioning, but you do need a good feel for the ground. It’s still pretty soft though, and therefore not stable enough for really uneven ground.
And the water-resistant upper? It’s perhaps too warm in mild conditions, but it certainly keeps the feet dry and toasty in grim weather.
In short This is the Range Rover Air Pegasus, with extra grip and water-resistance for off-road running. Its cushioning has been tweaked for the trails, but it’s kept its likeable fit and feel.
Try it if you liked Nike Air Pegasus 2000 (£60); Adidas Response Trail (£60); Puma Entice (£50)
