Hey, I finally got a brand-new pair of Nike Pegasus+ 30 running shoes. Ready to take them for a spin tomorrow and so I figured it would be great to do a quick pre-run review and then in a couple of weeks compare them with some real miles of marathon under their (my) belt. Here is a quick re-cap of my story about how I ended up getting them. In my posting here I revealed that I had some bad luck with the Mizuno Waver Rider 17 running shoes. It was the first time in a long time that I actually switched shoe models and brand at the same time and I had high hopes to have found a better running shoe for myself, but the experience turned a bit ugly after experiencing running related wounds on my toes coming from the Mizuno Wave Rider 17.

Is the Mizuno Wave Rider really the right Running Shoe for me? I am not that sure anymore and I am ready to break up with this running shoe even though I just had it for 5 weeks.

I had read many positive reviews about the shoe and it seemed to be a great move up from the more basic Nike Pegasus running shoe that I have been using for many years in different versions.

While I do have many running shoes, most of them are actually “retired” because they did their job protecting my feet on one of the many runs I do and they simply reached their expected end of life. I have been a big fan of the Nike Pegasus running shoe for many years, but with the 29th incarnation of the Nike Pegasus I was not too happy. It seemed like I just did not get the same mileage from the shoe anymore compared to the older models that I had before. I do not remember, but I think my love affair with the Nike Pegasus running shoe start with model #23. The Nike Pegasus 29 did not make me too happy even though I had a total of 4 or 5 pairs, but as I increased my running last year it became apparent that we have to part ways now. [Read more…]
