When it comes to travel, I like to be prepared with optimism. For example, I always pack bathing suits because you never know when you’ll be invited to a random hot tub party. (I finally got invited to a random hot tub party last year, and yes, I was ready.) I always pack a costume even if there’s nothing calling for one. on the itinerary, because you don’t want to say no to an impromptu invitation from Noma just because the nicest thing you have in your bag is a Rhude t-shirt. And I always bring some kind of waterproof shoe because wet feet in a foreign city are the worst kind of wet feet. And I’m a runner, so in addition to the other shoes the trip requires, I’ll have some slightly outlandish running kicks that only look normal when you’re running. All this optimistic preparation means that my luggage is often 75% shoes.
That percentage dropped significantly with my discovery of the all-black Nike Pegasus Trail 3 Gore-Tex, which is on sale for the next two days for $87.98, almost half the original price of $160 with the code READY20. (Note that you will need to sign in or create a Nike account for the code to work.)
This is a serious running shoe that is capable on the trail, but can also handle a 10K on the pavement without any issues. I logged about 250 miles, mostly on the road, in the previous generation Trail 2 Gore-Tex. It’s something I couldn’t have done in a more rugged trail runner. The Pegasus is also waterproof, while being extremely breathable. You’ll never be dying to take them off your feet at the end of the day. More importantly, the design is subtle enough to wear with civilian clothes, and I’ve managed to get my own pair to work with some costumes as well. And man, I never thought I’d be the kind of person who wears running sneakers when they walk through the airport, but I’m that guy now. It’s like Global Entry for your feet.
If you are a traveler, who likes to run or walk briskly, but also want something that you can maybe hike in, wear in the rain, and wear with everything from shorts to jeans to a suit? Get these. With proper outfit planning, you could probably do your entire trip in this one shoe. Don’t forget the bathing suit.
