Nike Air Pegasus 36 | Cody Hudson Edition

Nike Air Pegasus 36 | Cody Hudson Edition

The iconic Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 returns with more perforations and engineered mesh in the upper which strategically targets breathability across high-heat areas. A slimmer heel collar and tongue reduce bulk without compromising comfort, while exposed Flywire cables give you a snug fit at higher speeds.

The Chicago-based artist, Cody Hudson, is the latest participant in Nike Running’s A.I.R. (Artist In Residence) program. Extending Nike’s longstanding connection to graphic arts, this program pairs a creative talent with a range of contemporary silhouettes (both apparel and footwear) in the spirit of creating playful and energetic product capsules. 

Nike say; “When cultivating the design for this collection, Hudson wanted it to feel naturally artistic yet polished and purposeful. His conceptual design is brought to life through bold colours, simple graphics and clean text, creating a modern ensemble for the modern runner.”

These limited edition Pegasus are part of a collection of products, which are an expression of Hudson’s artistry in which he emphasizes organic shapes and colours. “The loose circle pattern to me is about constant motion and movement, but in a less than perfect way,” he says. “The bold and graphic shapes are meant to be abstract and open-ended enough where the viewer can start to bring their own meaning to them.”

These shoe’s are simply stunning and they are bound to make you stand out from the crowd.

The Pegasus has long been a firm favorite in the Nike Running line, one of my personal favorites too. They offer a light, firm, yet cushioned ride which is suitable for any distance.

There is a reason why the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 is so beloved by runners—it’s a workhorse. And with super-breathable Flymesh fabric and a fine-tuned aerodynamic shape, it’s made to help you train to be faster, for longer.

The Pegasus boasts full length Zoom air, which Nike claim is an airbag that runs from heel to toe and does two things: it absorbs the impact of every stride and it provides a responsiveness that’s reliable on mile one and mile one hundred.

The Cody Hudson Artist Apparel Collection is available July 18th in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Greater China, and September 5th in North America. I don’t expect the stock will last for long, so don’t hang about if you would like a pair.
