All right we’re good.

Hey everyone, it’s Jack and Zoe, here from Runbl. I’m here to talk to you about first impressions of the Nike Pegasus Twenty-Eight. I’d run in the Nike Vomero’s before.

Speaker 1:
A bunch.

Speaker 2:
A bunch. It was in there for a long time, off to college, everything. That’s a very very soft heel. When I first put these on, I noticed that they’re a lot more light weight than any Pegasus I’ve ever been used to, that was pretty heavy, which I wasn’t really into. When I tried these things on I noticed that they cut a lot of that weight out of them. It’s the first year they’ve used this fly wire technology in the mid sole slick. Cuts down on a little bit of weight, I’m guessing, which helps out and still wraps your heel in very nicely.

Another thing I noticed when I started running in them, and I do have a couple runs in them, is that this new cushlon foam that they use through the entire shoe is a little bit stiffer than any Nike that I’ve ever run in before. They still do have the air in the heel but since I am fore foot runner, I really noticed it in this shoe, just because they don’t have any air in the fore fit of the shoe. After I get done with a run, I’d notice that the balls of my feet were pretty stiff and almost felt bruised. That is something that loosened up. It took about a week running in them before that really loosened up. I’m not really used to breaking in a shoe at all. I’m the type that’ll just go out and run in the shoe. That took a little bit to get used to. I didn’t like them at first at all. I would recommend, if you pick a pair of these up, really break them in, give them time to break in. Especially if you run a lot on your fore foot, just because it can feel like you’re hurt at first. That does go away and it does loosen up.
