The sneakers are durable, supportive, and easy to clean. A souped-up, speed-oriented version of the Pegasus, the Peg Turbo continues the winning combo of ZoomX and React foams found in the first version. Together they deliver exceptional shock absorption and energy return, so these shoes feel comfortable and fast. Unfortunately, the new thin mesh upper has issues. Its minimal heel support means you have to cinch the laces down for a secure fit, but the tongue isn’t thick or long enough to prevent the laces from causing irritation. If you can handle a looser fit, though, you might avoid the issue.

A new analysis by The New York Times, an update of the one conducted last summer , suggests that the advantage these shoes bestow is real â€” and larger than previously estimated. How much would you pay for some sweet new kicks? $200? What about really old ones? A pair of 1972 Nike waffle racing flat Moon Shoesâ€ sold for $437,500 at Sotheby’s New York this afternoon, setting a world record for the most expensive sneakers ever sold at auction. The problem: They’re completely unlike the training sneakers I’m used to, with a raised heel (translation: No way am I doing squats and deadlifts in these), a pair of Zoom Air pockets in the forefoot, and, all around, a much larger design than what I’d typically use for training. I’m a major fan of Nike’s Metcon line, and I’ve used the Reebok Nano, and No Bull’s trainers â€” and I generally want a shoe without a massively elevated heel and too much cushioning.
