Advice for Road Runners: The Nike Women's Pegasus 39 Shield Running Shoes in the Black/White-DK Smoke Grey-Volt colourway offer protection from cold and wet weather.
They also feature an outsole that offers enhanced grip on wet pavements - making them an excellent option for winter running.
The Nike Pegasus 39 Shield Running Shoes feature React cushioning. However, there's also a Zoom Air Unit in both the heel and forefoot. As a result, they should deliver a protective, yet responsive underfoot feel.
Wet pavements can be slippy to run on over the winter. To help you overcome this challenge, the Pegasus 39 Shield have a Storm-Tread outsole. Inspired by winter tyres, micro grooves grab the surface. At the same time, multidirectional shapes help shed water to improve direct contact with the pavement.
The upper of the Nike Pegasus 39 Shield has a number of technologies to help keep you running in challenging conditions. Firstly, a water-repellent finish helps keep your feet dry. This is complimented by a gusseted tongue and skins on the toe area. Both of which help stop water seeping in.
Next, a knit material acts like a warm jacket for your feet. There's also a heathered lining in the collar that should result in your ankles feeling warmer and staying drier.
The Nike Women's Pegasus 39 Shield Running Shoes should be great for cold, wet winter runs. That's because they are likely to keep your feet warmer and improve your underfoot confidence on wet surfaces.
As the midsole offers great protection, these should perform over a range of paces and feel comfortable for daily miles.
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.
