Evaluation The Nike Air Pegasus 2002 is a great shoe - offering a roomy fit, a smooth ride and soft cushioning. So the Storm Pegasus should have equal appeal: it's built on the same last, boasts the same fit and identical cushioning and stability. Like last year, all that's different is a more rugged outsole and a winterised upper. The outsole is a deeper-lugged version of Nike's waffle - it's not as aggressive as the new Phassad or Teocalli, but it does offer more grip on the rough stuff than a road shoe. The first version of the Storm Pegasus was great off-road but a little slippery on wet roads - the latest outsole uses a stickier rubber to overcome this. The upper is well insulated, though water did get through on a wet test run.
In short As it's essentially the Pegasus 2002 with a facelift, the Storm Pegasus will appeal to a broad range of runners. It's not a hardcore off-roader - the midsole isn't low-profile enough and the grip isn't that aggressive - but if you run on a mix of road and trail it'll do you proud.
