Nike Pegasus+ 29, $100
Height: 38.7 mm (heel); 25.5 mm (forefoot)
Weight: 9.9 oz (M); 8.4 oz (W)
The Pegasus remains a go-to choice for a marshmallowy-soft ride. A breathable mesh upper provides structure to hold the foot in place with few overlays. Underneath the foot, Nike removed the independent crash pad at the heel, opting instead for cutouts in the sidewall that compress upon heel-strike to slow excessive inward roll of the foot. Wear-testers say the high heel tab can irritate the Achilles.
Bottom Line: A sound choice for recovery runs and long miles.
