What’s the difference between Pegasus 35 and 36?

The Pegasus 36 is built on the same midsole as the 35, so there’s no difference in the ride character. If you sense that there’s a difference, that’s probably because you are comparing a worn-in Pegasus 35 with a fresh-out-of-the-box 36. The upper is where you’ll find some changes.
