BETTER FOR TEMPOS
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2
Branded Shoes, The new Pegasus is based on the same extendable ZoomX foam midsole as the Vaporfly 4% Marathon running shoe, so it should come as no surprise that the shoe is fast and light. However, it does not lose the qualities of the long distance workhorse of the previous iterations of Pegasus, cutting a good balance between a flat race and a coach for the marathon. The shoe is exceptionally soft on the heel, with lots of pillows to keep you happy for miles and miles. The lightweight rubber sole gives you a good grip on smooth roads and slopes.
More regular ride
Saucony Freedom 3
Best Sneakers, Freedom 3 now uses a PWRRUN + midsole, an Adidas Boost bead-like foam in molten TPU, which helps to remove an ounce of weight and gives the shoe a really smooth, lively and flexible ride. The ISOfit upper is gone, a polarizing ghillie lacing system that was a dream for some runners but a nightmare for others, and has been replaced by traditional old school laces and a shaped and sturdy insole. (The new, simpler setup achieves the “made for me” feeling that ISO2 was looking for, but couldn’t nail.) With less weight and a lower profile, the Freedom bridges the gap in the Saucony range for runners who wanted the luxurious luxury and the rebound of the Triumph 17, but have moved away from its mass.

The RW Takeaway: The Levitate 3 is for runners looking for a stronger, fatter coach with a firm midsole.
- DNA Amp midsole provides high rebound
- Cushioning is firm, especially in the heel.
- Heavier than Levitate 2
Shoes And Sneakers, The Levitate 3 made us jump down the road and continue from the first moment with its elastic and firm midsole. Its arrowhead tread makes heel-to-toe transitions smooth, though flat ears aren’t as grippy on slippery surfaces and cinder paths. The shoe offers a high energy return, according to our measurements and tests by RW Shoe Lab performance measurements and tests. Kacamata Rayban
