It's supportive, but not so bulky it will slow you down. It's cushy but still lightweight and flexible enough that you'll be able to feel the road underfoot. Nike wanted to make a reliable, multi-purpose running shoe and the Pegasus 40 checks all the boxes.

Save over 30% on CBS Sports readers' favorite shoe of 2023: Nike Pegasus 40


The Pegasus line has been a staple among runners for decades -- 40 years to be exact. From the beginning, it's been built as a balanced, daily running shoe that delivers comfort and support but still adds a little extra bounce to your step.

The Pegasus 40 does that with a layer of Nike's signature React foam in the midsole. React foam is soft enough to cushion your foot when it lands but durable enough to spring back into shape when you lift off again. That spring back into shape helps provide a little extra lift in your stride. You also get two Air Zoom units, one in the heel and one in the forefoot. These small air capsules act kind of like a bouncy ball for a little extra propulsive power with each foot strike.

Overall, it's the ideal balance of support and responsiveness that runners look for in a daily trainer or for slow to medium-tempo runs and recovery runs. The daily trainer is available in men's, women's and kid's sizes.

Regularly priced at $130, you can find select women's sizes on sale for up to 34% off and select kid's sizes for up to 37% off while they're on clearance. You can also splurge on a custom design all your own for $160.
