The sneakers are durable, supportive, and easy to clean. The Peg has been a favorite in Nike’s running lineup for decades, and the latest iteration comes with several changes in the upper (it’s also available in a trail version ). Nike added larger perforations in the mesh for better cooling at high temperatures, and the tongue and heel collar are trimmed to save weight and improve the fit. The midsole is the same soft, bouncy combo of Cushlon foam matched with a full-length Zoom Air unit, and Nike carried over the grippy rubber outsole from the last version, too.

The new Winflo 6 got a makeover compared to the previous version, but it maintains the same affordable price tag, dependable cushioning, and grippy rubber outsole. The partial mesh upper has a sleeker appearance, and the shoe now sports the Peg-like pointed heel. The similarities between the shoes are more than skin deep, however: Like the Peg, the Winflo features soft Cushlon foam and responsive Zoom Air units in the midsole, although the Winflo’s Zoom Air units are split into separate forefoot and heel sections.
