The original NIKE AIR PEGASUS was released in 1983 and was designed “half-air” to represent speed and agility. It became a solid fixture on Nike’s release calendar throughout the ‘80s, with upgrades released almost annually. Here we see another re-run of the consistently hyped-up 1989 edition, which saw the model morph into what would be considered a more current running build akin to models such as the Air Span II; featuring a mesh base with suede overlays, a hidden Air-Sole unit, and Waffle outsole. Teetering at almost 35 years in circulation, the forthcoming Nike drop transports us back to its heyday with two OG-inspired colourways: Swan, Rose Coral, Black and Medium Grey or Black, Photon Dust and Anthracite.
The return of the NIKE AIR PEGASUS 89 is due to release on WEDNESDAY 1 FEBRUARY: follow the banner below to check them out on NIKE ahead of the drop.
