The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 33 Deconstructed

The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 33 is one of the brand’s most accessible running silhouettes. It is priced at $110 and comes in narrow, regular, wide, and extra-wide fits. Finally, Chinese site fastpass took the ax to this runner to see what’s inside.

There’s a lot of Zoom in this shoe, both a forefoot and heel unit (thank you for the close ups fastpass), but also cardboard due to Nike’s Ecosole. The heel unit is fairly thick at just over 11mm, while the forefoot unit is thinner at 7mm but spread like a fan beneath the ball of the foot. The engineered mesh isn’t Flyknit (which this writer prefers — Flyknit is often stiff and unpleasant, this mesh isn’t) and that may be a deal-breaker for some. It’s reassuring to see that the Flywire does actually run beneath the midsole layers to aid at keeping one properly locked in.

Check out the gallery of images below and let us know whether the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 33 looks more appealing now that you know exactly what’s inside it.

  1. “The engineered mesh isn’t Flyknit (which this writer prefers — Flyknit is often stiff and unpleasant, this mesh isn’t) and that may be a deal-breaker for some.”

    I’m kind of confused with what you’re saying. I thought Flynit is supposed to be more comfortable? If not, what is the point of Flynit? I’ve never had a Flynit shoe, so that is why I am asking. So do you personally prefer Flynit?

    1. You’re right that was a bit confusing. What I meant was that I prefer the engineered mesh. Flyknit is so stiff when compared to other knits from adidas, Puma, brandblack, etc. Flyknit costs a ton because it’s Nike and it’s not as good as other knits. So I prefer the cheaper EM.
