Nike built the Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail from the chassis of the iconic Pegasus 36 but added some off-road modifications to make it suitable for the wild.
Unique to the Peg Trail is an entirely new mesh upper that breathes during sweltering heat and drains after taking a dip in a puddle, and Nike added abrasion-resistant skins on the toe and heel to boost durability. Designers also gave the shoe separate Air Zoom units in the forefoot and heel for better stability and responsiveness.
Underneath, Nike gave the shoe more aggressive lugs with flat tops for increased traction on the trail and comfortable cruising on pavement.
With the same fit and feel as the Pegasus 36, the Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail is a serious trail running shoe disguised as an everyday trainer.
