In the early 80s, when Nike was still known as, first and foremost, a running shoe company, the Air Pegasus was developed. This simple design utilized the space shuttle silhouette, nylon upper and EVA midsole; it was primarily designed to introduce an Air cushioned training shoe into the marketplace at an affordable price.
Unlike many other Nike runners from this era, the Pegasus did not slip away into the obscurity of fond recollections by only the most devoted of Nike fans. The Air Pegasus has stayed in production for over thirty years, always staying true to the original mission of incorporating new technology onto a simple, eminently usable silhouette.
The Air Pegasus New Racer takes the original appearance and adds modern touches, such as an updated ripstop nylon/mesh/synthetic suede upper, a sleek, tonal red colorway, and a streamlined appearance. These subtle tweaks are the perfect tribute to the timeless simplicity of the Pegasus.
