The Nike Air Pegasus has reached it’s 30th anniversary this year, releasing the +30 this year for $100.

The now-classic running shoe continues to epitomize it’s Greek namesake, the majestic winged horse, by providing quickness, flexibility, and added cushion. The Nike Pegasus began with a simple mission: “To design a more accessibly priced every person’s Air training shoe,” as told by Nike CEO Mark Parker.

Not only did the Pegasus give runners an affordable option, but it’s a pair of durable kicks proven to meet the needs of any runner type. From the original Bill Bowerman waffle sole with the standard BRS 1000 rubber to this year’s added fitsole sockliner that molds to the shape of your foot, the shoe is still the ideal training shoe for World Champion runners like Bernard Lagat and Mo Farah. Although the shoe has gone through many alterations and modifications, Nike will always strive to make this the “shoe for every runner.” Check out The Complete History of the Nike Air Pegasus.
