Pegasus 30 v Pegasus 30 Shield
Could you please explain the difference between the two types of pegasus 30 shoes you stock? What does the Shield refer to and is there any major difference in the shoes?

With the 30 Shield the whole upper is reflective with reflectors on the heel counters as well. These are designed to be off road and trail shoes although having used them for a couple of months now the water resistance is a tad questionable on the uppers. In the 29GTX shoes you could run through puddles and not have any seeping dampness but these definitely let water in although not as much as an ordinary running shoe. These also have insulation in them to keep your feet warm in colder weather and the tread is chunkier than on the standard 30, there is also a stone shield as well so that you don't get thrown off balance when on rough ground. I also own standard Pegasus shoes (29s) and these are definitely more robust and will withstand trail running although the predecessor the 29GTX had a Gore-Tex upper and was a far superior shoe to these. As the 28GTX was discontinued these are the next best thing.
