Nike Free Run+
Experts say that running barefooted minimizes the chances of injury and by wearing the Nike Free Run+, you will get exactly the same experience. It has an extremely flexible free sole which enables s the wearer to experience the feeling of running barefoot as the sole adjusts itself to the topography of the ground. When Nike came to know that all the Stanford athletes are practicing barefooted on the golf course, they came up with the idea of manufacturing a shoe that would give the similar experience of running barefoot.
The flexibility of the sole was designed in such a way that it would be caricaturist the biomechanics of a runner running barefooted. The upper of the shoes are made out of flymesh which is breathable, colorful as well as flexible. The lacing system of the shoe sits tightly on the foot which makes it secured and ideal for running. The pair of shoe weighs around 242 gram and has an 8mm heel drop. This sneaker has a slipper-like feel along with high breathability and great styling. The cushioning of the sneakers makes it a must try.
Nike Air Pegasus+
Distance runner Mo Farah has acclaimed Pegasus as one of his favorite shoes. The Pegasus has been manufactured keeping in mind the three most important points that are the forefoot, the midfoot and the heel. The engineered mesh provides the utmost comfort by providing a highly breathable material and the heel. It has a seamless interior as well as an ultra-light feeling. The Pegasus is famous for its security.
The design of the shoe has been created in such a way that it keeps your feet cool which is an ideal choice for the monsoon season. Overall, the Nike Air Pegasus+ is the jack of all trade in the shoe category. A neutral platform with a 10m offset which weighs around 10.4 ounces is one of the most ideal shoes that you will ever get. The sole of the shoe is highly durable yet light weighted. This is one of the unique features that you won’t get in the other shoes. The outsole of the shoe is Premium Cushion foam, and the forefoot and heel consist of Zoom Air. The insole of the Pegasus consists 5mm of padding and breathable neon fabric of 1/2mm. The upper material of the shoe has engineered mesh which wrapped the entire shoe for extreme breathability which is a feature you must look for while choosing a sneaker for the monsoon. Moreover, the flywire helps to keep the lace secured, and the shoe also has excellent rubber coverage on the outsole. But the only disadvantage of this shoe is the outsole which frequently picks up small rocks. Other than this, it is one of the ideal shoes that you can roam around wearing in the monsoon without getting uncomfortable.
