About a year ago I bought a pair of Nike Lunar Racer 3 running shoes, and at first, I wasn’t a fan, but I grew to like them so much I bought another pair in another color. These pairs of shoes were my primary running shoes in 2015.
I recommended them to anyone who asked me what shoes they should run in and with good reason. They are light and offer great support.
Only thing is I think they are more suited to track and short distance work. I mainly run long distances, but they still were comfortable; until the beginning of December.
I have a flat arch in my feet, and my left foot started to bother me during runs. This discomfort extended to when I first got out of bed in the morning and when I played basketball.
I took a week off from running while I traveled home for Christmas, but after my first run, the pain returned to my left arch.
Nike Zoom Pegasus 32 Running Shoes
So far I’ve had two runs in these beauties. On New Year’s Day I ran five miles in the blistering cold, and the next day I ran fourteen miles on the treadmill. I love the way these shoes felt on my feet.
I still had the ankle support of the Lunar Racers but had a more spring in them and provided way more arch support, which is important for longer distance runs.
The Flywire cables around the midfoot provide additional support throughout the foot. The mesh upper allowed my foot to breathe.
This is key because I don’t like my foot to get too hot but it still was able to keep my feet warm in the cold temperatures, so I believe this is a shoe you can wear in the cold and in the heat.
I would recommend the Nike Zoom Pegasus 32 for any level runner. They work for me on a comfort level, a performance level as well as an aesthetic level.
They are currently available for men and women (click the links) as ID products (you can design them in any color combination you want).
