Check out the Fresh Brew Run Club review of the Nike Pegasus Trail 3 Gore-Tex
Thinking about purchasing the Pegasus Trail 3? In this video, I go over my first impression of this trail running shoe, on a very challenging run in Sedona, Arizona (spoiler alert, I only fell once). Watch the video below for the full review.
Overall, the Nike Pegasus Trail 3 is a fantastic running shoe. It was stable, gripped the trail even on dusty terrain and was durable enough to endure a very rocky path. That durability protected my feet from rocks, dirt and cacti. The elastic band around the ankle helps to seal your foot off from debris and even water.
I wouldn’t say there are any directly “bad” elements of this shoe, but the Nike Pegasus Trail 3 Gore-Tex is a bit heavy. But that weight is for good reason, the shoe is strong enough to withstand some tough trails and runs. The shoe is also a bit pricey, so be sure to shop around for the best deals.
Overall, this was a great shoe. It prevented me from slipping, even when running downhill on a dusty path. It clearly protects your feet from rocks and obstacles you may encounter on tougher terrain. Plus, the colorways are pretty cool.

NikeTalk user TC1900 posted new official images of the upcoming Nike Pegasus 38. What are your thoughts?
Here’s a first look at the Nike Pegasus 38
The Nike Pegasus 38 is the next iteration of one of Nike’s most popular running shoes. After a significant refresh with the Pegasus 37, the 38 is poised to build on that solid base without many major changes. The midsole looks to be the same, with updates to the upper.
Thanks to the Twitter account Rolows_13, we have an initial image of the shoe:
Based in the leaked image, the midsole appears to be the same as the Pegasus 37, but there does appear to be a new upper. The 37 had a full mesh material on the upper, but the 38 appears to have several different materials. The Swoosh is bigger and it looks like there might be some reflective elements on the updated version.
According to Nike, “The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 38 releases to Nike Members April 15 in Europe, April 22 in North America and April 29 globally.”
Some of the initial reactions from LetsRun.com were mixed:
“I like my 37 so have a good feeling about these ones” -fwnvbjkbjsd
“I don’t see the point in it myself. It is good for long slow runs but nothing else. The boston and even reebok shoes are far better (and much lighter).” -ozzyosbournesdentures
“I don’t get what they’re doing with that heel. On my Peg 37s with about 350 miles, the last 2cm or so of the heel looks untouched. There’s a decent amount of foam in the rear of the shoe that seems completely unnecessary. It’s just extra weight.” -shuffleshuffle
