Its a shame that I have to retire my old pair of running shoes. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve broken them in so nicely, that it fits exactly the way I want it to. Problem is: its really time to get a new pair. So, the first thing I do is head on over Runner’s World to do a little research because the review and articles they provide are very informative and I always feel empowered by that information, knowing that when I decide in a pair, I’ll really like them.
And so, this time I decided on a classic: the Nike Air Pegasus 30. They’re comfy, super-cushiony, and is the culmination of thirty years of running history. Plus, they look real stylish, too. But that’s not why we buy shoes, am I right? I took them out for a quick 3-miler and I must say “These are damn comfy.” I’ll continue to update this post if I notice any quirks to the shoe, or something like that. In the meantime, here are the specs and more photos. Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
