Out of the box, the Turbo feels plush and lightweight. It’s on the same last as the Pegasus 35, so you’ll notice a similar streamlined, performance fit with a roomier toebox, and a seamless, breathable upper that stretches to conform to your foot.
The Turbo’s heel collar curves away from the Achilles, which offers immediate comfort and, for most runners, alleviates any potential hot spots on the heel for most people.
Nike’s proprietary ZoomX foam provides 85-percent energy return (more than any other Nike foam out there and, quite frankly, more than many popular trainers on the market today). It’s the foam used in the Vaporfly Zoom Elite, the Vaporfly 4% and, now, the Pegasus Turbo.
With every step, ZoomX foam bounces almost totally back to its original shape before impact. The transfer means more of your energy is returned, rather than absorbed. Theoretically, this means you’ll end up with more energy after your Sunday long run than you would if you were wearing a shoe with soft, less bouncy foam. And so far, testers agree it works.
Nike says you should get, on average, about 500 miles out of each pair. So, plan on durability. For most runners, this means you might complete your entire marathon training cycle with just one pair of shoes (though, to be fair, we do recommend alternating shoes as a method of injury prevention).
