      Comments about Mens Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 Running Shoe:

      Great improvements over the last few Pegasus models. Totally different with less shoe and introduction of the Nike Air Zoom technology.

      First off the construction of the shoe is excellent. Fused overlays (much lighter) with no stitching makes it much lighter and better looking. The upper on the forefoot has a very stretchy mesh much like the Nike Flyknit that makes the toebox fit snuggly, but still stretches where toes do not feel cramped. Midfoot upper has a very supportive but not stiff overlay that just hugs the foot. Heel upper has a very firm heel cup that is very supportive.

      The cushioning of the Pegasus 31 is much different than on previous models. They lessened the amount of cushioning and added the Air Zoom cushioning on the heel strike. This makes the shoe very responsive without feeling too squishy or mushy but that is very subjective. Also, heel to toe drop is much less than previous models at 10mm which is better. The footprint of the sole is wide which is great because you feel very solid when you strike the ground. Some shoe manufacturers make the footprint of the sole that is much too narrow and it feels too easy to roll an ankle and just not solid on the strike. The shoe is lower to the ground, however, provides ample cushioning. The shoe feels pretty light. The Pegasus 31 looks really good and gets the much improved award for appearance from the Pegasus 30 models.

      This is like the Swiss Army knife of running shoes. It has plenty of cushioning for long runs, yet the design also allows them to be still good for speed work. The shoe is designed more for slight overpronators as the heel cushioning is slightly firmer on the inside of the heel as opposed to softer on outside of the heel. They are great to run in and you forget them very quickly. Just comfortable on the feet and Air Zoom cushioning is just great. They really should use the Air Zoom technology on all their running shoes.

      The only improvements that I would like to see is a model that favored the underpronators (supination) runners with firmer cushioning on outside of heel. Also, I would like to see a bit more cushioning in the forefront making the heel toe drop slightly less. However, those are minute gripes. I gave it 4 stars because I haven't had much time on the shoe and don't know the longevity of it, but it is the best Pegasus model Nike has made yet and best shoe I have run in for a while. I will most likely have to buy another pair for storage because we all know how difficult it is to find a great shoe that fits your style of running.

        I run 30 plus miles per week in size 8 2E and have been an avid Pegasus wearer for years. This shoe is narrower than the +30, particularly in the toe box where the shoe tapers more from the outside ball of the foot to the front. The sole is firmer as well.

              Have run in almost all versions of the Pegasus' and this one is probably the best. Extremely comfortable and cushioned without being overly soft. Alternate my shoes every day, but find myself wanting to run in these all the time. Upper is definitely an improvement - more sock like. Great update!!

                    I've had the 29 and 30 models of the Pegasus. I loved the 30 but this is possibly even better. Nike has improved every minor flaw of the 30. The 31 is less squishy and more responsive. The heel to toe drop is better. The upper is more breathable and the heel collar isn't as bulky. Style wise they look better too. These are going to be my work horse trainers this summer. I think this shoe would work for any surface or speed. It's that good.

                      Comments about Mens Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 Running Shoe:

                      This is a brilliant shoe. I couldn't have asked for something better. Unusually for this "round" of shoes this is my third attempt at finding one. It's a very fitted shoe so if you like a roomy overly sloppy toe-box this is not your shoe. If you like a perfectly fitted shoe, with not sloppy movement–this is what you want. I feel as if it's an extension of me rather than an annoyance I have to deal with.

                      My previous was a LunarEclipse 3+ Sheild–I really should not have been a shoe so supportive. This is one one criticism with Shoe Dog–it shoves everyone seemingly into a supportive shoe (many people also run differently on a treadmill than outdoors). Regardless, I have a high to normal arch, slight underpronation, and all around mid-foot strike. For that, this shoe is perfect!

                      Cusion: Zoom is only in the rear half, not exactly in the "heel" as others. Quite nice–I don't miss not having it in the front (even if I'm a mid-foot striker). It's actually still quite "Cush" in the mid-foot area!

                      All around great shoe from Nike–gives me a very solid, smooth, run. Makes me want to run more!

                      Only warning: The Nike Pegasus 31 does follow their recent trend of narrower than "normally" slightly wider fitting Nike shoes. For my not-narrow but narrower european sized 9 feet, it's perfect. Keep that in mind.
