Advice for Road Runners: The Nike Women's Air Zoom Pegasus 39 Shield Running Shoes in the Light Bone/Vivid Purple/Cobblestone colourway provide added warmth and water resistance to keep you running in the harshest conditions!
The shoes use responsive React midsole foam and include heel and forefoot Zoom Air units to smooth heel-to-toe transitions. The React foam which forms the midsole is lightweight, durable and springy and provides excellent cushioning without bulk.
This Shield version also incorporates a textured Storm-tread rubber outsole. This is grooved to provide more grip on wet surfaces and shed water. This shedding of water also increases direct ground contact for greater traction.
The upper insulates and protects the feet from excess moisture. A heathered upper and tongue lining increases insulation. Aeroloft technology on the upper improves heat retention but also ensures the feet don’t overheat.
Sealed seams and a gusseted tongue help prevent water from entering the shoe. A protective toe box and skins placed around the toe area also enhance this water resistance. Finally, a water-repellent treatment helps water bead off the upper.
The Nike Women's Air Zoom Pegasus 39 Shield Running Shoes are great for running through the Winter. Like the standard Pegasus, they still feel responsive across a range of paces, but offer superb warmth and protection against the harsh elements encountered through the Winter months.
Shoe size is a personal preference and everyone's feet are different, but we want to ensure you avoid any pain or discomfort from bruised toenails, rubbing, blistering or pins and needles.
Your running shoes should have enough width to allow you to spread your toes and should have some space at the front (we recommend having a half to one thumb's width of space from the end of your longest toe to the front of your running shoes).
This usually means that your running shoe will be at least a half size bigger than your regular shoe size though this can vary from brand to brand.
