For each members of the U.S.A. Track & Field (USATF), their coach, and various support networks of friends and family, this very moment is crucial as preparations are now underway for the Track & Field Olympic Trials in Eugene, OR. A long time supporter of the team and the Olympic movement, Nike will begin to issue the newest rendition of its classic runner, the Nike Pegasus, to those participating in the competition. Various alterations and upgrades went into this latest variant, the Nike Air Pegasus+ 29, including a more robust Flywire overlay and a weave-base upper (similar to the new Nike Flyknit technology). A slight articulation of the outsole means greater flexibility and a more natural range of motion. Appointed with USATF’s “star and wings” emblem at the tongue and two forms of red, white, and blue color schemes, the Nike USATF Air Pegasus+ 29 is available only to members of USATF currently with public availability starting on June 5th.
