Nike’s Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 is one of the brand’s best running shoes. It’s as light as most race day runners, so you can absolutely gun for a PR in them, but it’s sturdy enough to handle heavy-mileage training, too. Its neutral cushioning protects the plantar fascia and can help prevent against lateral pronation. (If you’ve ever noticed the outside of your shoes shaved down a ton after excessive wear, this sneaker is for you.)

The Pegasus Turbo 2 also shares some DNA with Nike’s hyper-fast (and hyper-controversial) Vaporflys, which have been dismantling records since runners started lacing them up three years ago. Notice how tall that midsole is? It’s infused with a similar ZoomX midsole to what you’d find on the Vaporfly. Basically, Nike figured out how to make a featherlight, cloud-like pillow that sends energy back into your movements at a ridiculously consistent clip.

These running sneakers are usually $180, but for a limited time you can get them on Jackrabbit for 40% off. We don’t know why this deal exists. Probably because only one color is well-stocked on sizing (the one pictured above). Oh, and the shipping isn’t ideal — free shipping is 10-14 days, while six-10 days costs $9.99. But it’s an insane opportunity to take a ton of money off an amazing running sneaker, and definitely worth the week-plus wait. Use that time to stretch and ice up. Long miles are ahead.
