Having called Oregon home for over three decades, it comes as no surprise that Nike has developed close ties with the state’s several track clubs, even forming some of their own. And rather than celebrate any one in particular, the brand is currently paying homage to a number of these organization via the Zoom Pegasus 40, including but certainly not limited to the Oregon Track Club.
The history of the Oregon Track Club dates all the way back to 1958, the year Bill Bowerman — one of the forefathers of the Swoosh — founded the organization with help from Ray Hendrickson and Bob Newland. Formerly known as the Emerald Empire Athletic Association, the outfit would be renamed to Oregon Track Club in 1965, after which they would quickly became a dominant force in the track and field scene.
Here, the Nike Zoom Pegasus 40 pays a relatively understated homage to the Oregon Track Club. Alongside flaunting their logo across the lateral rear, the pair features the organization’s mascot atop the insoles, green accents through the shoe, and “OTC” stamps across both the tongue and heel.
Enjoy a closer look at the Nike Zoom Pegasus 40 “Oregon Track Club” via the official images ahead. A release date has not yet been confirmed, but it’s likely these’ll be on the track once the temperature begins to rise.
