Air Pegasus+ 28 Review

After several missed runs I finally have a pair of running shoes.

As some of you may remember I have been having trouble with shoes.  I have bought 3 pairs and now have sent one pair of Vomeros back to Nike in hopes they would replace them as defective.  I mailed them to the Memphis Plant on June 14 and got a product voucher on Saturday June 25.  That's pretty fast service if you ask me.  I was leaving Sunday for a teacher conference so I spent some time in the malls trying on some shoes and deciding which Nike shoe I would order once I returned home.

I picked the Nike Air Pegasus + 28.  It felt like a glove when I put it on.  The flywire system allows for a snug fit but also enough room that your feet don't feel smothered in running shoes.  They are very breathable which is a good thing on all these hot summer runs.  These shoes have the same sole system as the vomeros and a segmented crash pad that allows for some totally awesome cushioning.

It might be that I picked the volt red version but I think they are fast and feel great on my feet.  I ordered them on Tuesday 5pm and got them Thursday 2:30PM.  Just in time for a quickie test run and a full test run on Friday.  I don't think I've ever had this kind of service with ordering anything online before.  And to beat the quick shipping, Nike offers a 30 day run test guarantee.  So if you order a pair of shoes from them online and get them and they aren't exactly what you expected you can send them back for an exchange up to 30 days past the order date.

My legs were a bit tired but that could have come from all those missed runs.  They felt like the pillows that I had in the vomeros.  I'm very pleased with these shoes and have learned that I need to buy a back up pair so I'm in the market for something else,  got any suggestions??  :-)
