Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 Trail Running Test And Review

From 2017 until now, the hottest thing in the world of running is the “Breaking2 Plan”. Nike with three athletes have challenged the world record . Although the final plan went bankrupt, the athlete broke the world record of 2:57 seconds by the 2 :25 seconds.  Nevertheless, people had to admit that this was the most successful marketing in selling .

With the dropping of “Breaking 2”, Nike subsequently released the “Breaking 2” running shoes, respectively, Zoomfly, Vaperfly 4% and Pegasus 34, the protagonist of this running evaluation is Pegasus34, but the color is the black gold color.

The difference between Pegasus 30 and Pegasu 29 is a bit. In my opinion, the Pegasus 30 has a slightly heavier shoe type, and the the 31-generation  seems a little stiff, also the material will be wrinkle easily. The 32 followed the 31 for the design , also the 32 moved the  craftwork of  hot melt material , then used the kyrine .The Pegasus 33 followed the 32 ,but used the Zoom.

So we can see the picture as below :



As always, white Nike paper bag with orange “NIKE.COM” and  orange handles . Cardboard is placed under the bag to reinforce the three-dimensional feeling of the bag.

For the box ,it is nothing special. it is a normal

There is the info of the side

The size of the shoe box is 320×200×100. On the left side of the shoe box is a side sign with shoe size information and English color matching information. The full name of the shoe is called NIKE AIR ZOOM PEGASUS 34, item number is 880555 017

 Pegasus 34’s toe with similar the  33, but the 33 and 34 will be better for the upper design which reduces the friction caused by the incompatibility of the toe  and the upper. Each person’s toe shape is different, The  Pegasus 34’s shoe type tends to be slender, but it doesn’t produce instep or partial pressure.


The Flymesh 34 was used the Flymesh  material  which was breathable and lightweight. No matter if it was touched by hand or on the upper foot, it could feel a strong texture. Large meshes are also used on the upper, the body and the mouth of the shoe. The elliptical mesh gives the shoe a more speedy appearance. Compared to the previous generation Pegasus 33, the mesh of the Pegasus 34 is larger and more widely distributed  from the toe extends to the golden Swoosh.


The golden Swoosh on the  shoe has a gold triangle printed on it. This triangle should be the “metal star” mentioned above. Swoosh uses hot-melt technology to melt in the upper, such a Swoosh not only play an aesthetic role, but also can strengthen the support of the upper, so that the shoes can also be fixed in the fierce acceleration of the feet.


The shoes used  a dynamic Flywire, Pegasus34’s dynamic Flywire extends around shoes. 32-34 generations have adopted flying lines, 32 are domineering exposed Flywire, 33 are semi-built-in Flywire, and 34  used completely built-in Flywire. The advantage of a completely built-in Flywire that it can reduce  break due to carelessness.



The tongue with the Nike logo and the word “PEGASUS 34”. The following is a fine-grained mesh to increase breathability. it prevents the wrapping from deteriorating after the sides fall, and it prevents the undesirable friction caused by falling on both sides.


I like the red one ,it feels very soft and beautiful. On the insole is printed the gold “RUNNING” lettering, followed by a Swoosh, the thickness of the insole is  about 3.5mm. That is great .


The first aspect of the configuration is the separation of the front and rear zooms, the foremsole is Zoom  which more thinner and  even more than 1cm. The Zoom Air air cushion of the rear forefoot is fan-shaped and the thickness is about 7mm. The midsole does not look much different from the previous generation in terms of appearance. The upper part of the midsole is designed with slashes. One slash is separated like a zebra crossing. The slashes are clearly visible in the middle of the midsole.
In fact, the Pegasus series is not only the Zoom Air cushion, Cushlon foam is also powerful technology. The supersoft feel of Pegasus 29 is due to the presence of this foam. The name Cushlon is preceded by cushion, meaning cushioning, and behind it is the suffix of the foam.Pegasus 34 does not feel as soft as a hand when pressed.



The Zoom is very obvious. The Zoom of the forefoot is less impressive, but it also highlights the speeding up of the startup. The padding of the heel just enough to buckle before running, I barefoot through the shoes to experience it lining, I feel more soft and smooth, and the heel fill will make the upper part of the ankle not border the shoe .

The Pegasus 34 felt thicker and more comfortable in terms of wrapping. Here are the differences between Pegasus 33 and 34:
The mesh of the 34 is much larger and the relative breathability will be better.
First :33 used semi-built-in Flywire  and 34 is a completely built-in Flywire . Durability of 34 should be higher.
Second :34 followed by no reflective design, and 33 have, 33 night run more better.
Forth : 33’s shoelaces are circular stripes, and the 34 is a weaving staggered pattern. The 34 shoelaces are less likely to be loosened.
Five: 33 was followed by a gauze design, while the 34 was a hot-melt material. The 34 was superior in terms of wear resistance and stability (because the presence of the mouth of the shoe, followed by the fact that it was not so stressed).


Zoom back and feedback can clearly be felt when playing , but it is not particularly powerful. During the acceleration process, the forefoot’s force-generating grooves allow the shoe to quickly deform and help accelerate. Even if it suddenly accelerates, the shoe will not feel dragged.

There are more pictures as below :  Overall,Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 is nice and perfect for  running ,then it will be better then the 33, how do you think ?
