The men’s shoe (opens in new tab) is also discounted in the sale, from $120 to $96 with the code SAVE20.
The Nike Pegasus is a brilliant everyday running shoe, designed for daily miles. It’s a workhorse and could get you around everything from a 5K to a marathon. While it might not be the fastest running shoe on the market, it’s responsive enough to allow you to pick up the pace when you need it, and is a good running shoe for beginners, and those clocking out longer miles alike.
The Nike Pegasus 38 is a good choice for experienced and beginner runners alike. It's more comfortable underfoot than the Pegasus 37. With the 38th iteration of the shoe, Nike attempted to fix some of the fit issues — the toe box is wider, the laces do up slightly differently and there’s cushioning beneath the tongue for a comfier fit. They’ve also fixed the shallow heel cup of the Pegasus 37, which many runners found caused blisters on the run.
When it comes to Nike Pegasus 39 vs Nike Pegasus 38, from our testing, we found the Nike Pegasus 39 to be the slightly better shoe, but at $64, it’s definitely worth shopping for the cheaper Pegasus. With the 39, Nike added an extra Zoom Air unit to the foot's heel and slightly tweaked the upper, but aside from that, the two shoes are very similar. The Pegasus 38 is still a wonderfully reliable shoe — it’s well-built and durable, so you can expect to get hundreds of miles out of it.
This is a fantastic shoe for beginners who want to feel comfortable, stable, and supported as they move, and more experienced runners, who want a reliable all-rounder. If you only shop one deal today for running, make it this one. And be sure to check out our Memorial Day sales live blog for all the latest savings.
