No matter how cold the weather may get and how inclement the conditions may become, die-hard runners will still be getting their miles in, and Nike Running's Pegasus Turbo Shield lets them stay warm and dry. A silhouette that mixes a Zoom Pegasus Turbo midsole with a water-resistant upper, the Pegasus Turbo Shield was clearly crafted with the winter sprinter in mid, and now it's surfaced in a vivid "Habanero Red" colorway.
A hot red synthetic shroud envelops the upper, secured by an asymmetrical zipper with taped seams and a Velcro closure around the higher-than-usual ankle to keep moisture out. When zipped back, this sheath reveals the shoe's inner workings: a simple black mesh base layer with a flexible black and red striped elastic lacing system. Both form and function are provided by pops of bright silver, which appear on the lateral and medial Swooshes, and are also scattered across the upper to increase style and visibility.
Down below, the aforementioned Pegasus Turbo midsole utilizes ZoomX cushioning for high-speed comfort, and presents a sleek textured shape to add an air of speed. A straightforward black outsole completes the look.
The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo Shield "Habanero Red" is available now on Nike.com. The MSRP is set at $210 USD.
Elsewhere in the world of Nike, LeBron James's LeBron 17 is set to release in a "Win-Win" colorway, inspired by the young hoopers around the nation that encourage him to keep pushing.
