What happens when the world’s fastest marathon runner challenges one of the world’s leading running brands to develop a new shoe?

It brings you the worlds fastest running shoe; the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo. Pegasus Turbo promises to bring “fast” to all runners.

It was launched in what Nike describes as the fastest city, Tokyo. Speaking to Executive Style, running Vice President Brett Holts says “Japan has a reputation for creating some of the world’s fastest runners. The country’s dedication to the sport and its athletes is inspiring, and this year nine Japanese runners ran under 2:10 minutes in the Tokyo marathon.” Going on he said “With Tokyo set to host the 2020 Olympics we’re excited to launch our latest running innovation here.”

The shoes are made to deliver a feeling similar to the Pegasus using the same shape that runners and athletes love. The Zoom Pegasus Turbo takes inspiration from several running shoes. Starting with the Pegasus; Nike’s best selling running shoe of all time.

The Pegasus Turbo uses the ZoomX foam in the midsole and the flywire cable locks in the foot to increase stability, while the 10mm offset and 12mm forefoot stack height to help runners store more energy. But Nike runners advice that the shoes are great for game day but do not have it’s use for day to day running.

The shoes are available now for sale.

I believe every runner is probably having a “shoegasm” right now. Well the faster the better.
