Yesterday, Nike announced the latest iteration of its all-time best-selling
Adidas Hamburg Dam
running shoe, the Air Zoom Pegasus. In the 35 years since the shoe has been around, the style and
of the shoe's upper has changed a lot, but the technology in the sole has remained pretty much the same.
The Air Zoom Pegasus sole is made from a combination of foam and

small airbags that provide extra cushion and spring. And for this latest update, Nike merged the
Nike Air VaporMax Dámské
airbags, so that its contoured to fit the shape of your foot, from your heel all the way to your toe, explains

Chris Nuelle, a Nike EKIN expert, at a launch event for the shoe. And the other exciting feature? The Pegasus 35 has a women's-specific fit.
Hearing that a running shoe is made "for women" may give you Lady Doritos vibes, but men and

women do have slightly different feet. For example, men typically have longer and wider feet than women, and women tend to have narrower

heels and higher arches compared to men. One very small study showed that women who run 50 miles a week or more tend to have higher arches and narrower heels than non-runners, although it's unclear why. These slight anatomical differences matter when it comes

to running shoes, so it's not shocking that running brands make women's shoes differently.Back in 2004,

Nike made the Pegasus' saddle (the part that hugs your arch) more "curvaceous," so that it could provide more support for women's feet. For the Pegasus 35, Nike surveyed women runners about what else they want from a shoe, and found that weight and cushion were super important. So, this new model is made with a slightly softer foam, which makes the

whole shoe lighter (a women's size 8 is about 8.1 ounces, which is slightly heavier than the Nike Epic React).Another difference that you'll notice with this Pegasus 35 is the shape. The heel is designed to bend away from your Achilles tendon, to alleviate some of the pressure that you may feel. The heel is also beveled slightly at the sole, so it "looks as fast as it feels," Nuelle

says. And, the knit fabric of the shoes upper is made with a special textile that makes the color look

extra vibrant on your foot, he says. In other words, you could totally wear these when you're not working out.
