Erich G.wrote a review of Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail Running Shoe - Men's on June 8, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
This shoe is an effective combo of the new Peg 36 road shoe and some of the new trail technology Nike dropped into the recent Terra Kiger 5 and Wildhorse 5 shoes. The fit feels relatively low volume up front, but the material and elastic anchors for the lacing system allow for some stretch in the forefoot. The heel cup works well, and it seems the whale tail flip above the cup is mostly for looks. Tough overlays surround high-wear areas fore and aft, fitting for a shoe that likes to head into the woods. There's smart usage of modern lamination / welding around the lacing loops which spreads stabilizing forces evenly without hot spots or thread-bunching.. I've used these on the road, on hardpack dirt and in the woods: my sense is that the Peg's 10mm drop is less ideal for highly technical trail situations (this is where the Terra Kiger 5, with its 4mm drop, shines) but is superior to Nike's other trail shoes when the ground is primarily packed dirt or pavement. Given the moderate tread pattern and speedy roll, this shoe is my go-to for all but the most technical or slippery situations.
