Notes: In 1983 the Air Pegasus shoe was created and named after the winged half-horse to represent movement, quickness and the allure of flying. In its 35 years of life, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus has undergone major technology shifts and supported training efforts of countless everyday runners and some of the world’s best distance runners. When it came time to update the shoe, designers turned to feedback from elite athletes, one being one of the silhouette’s biggest fans, champion British distance runner Mo Farrah. Oh and Nike CEO Phil Knight is also one of the Pegasus’ biggest advocate, rocking the sneaker at many black tie events.
