In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co., Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which, when translated, expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. Today, ASICS offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories dedicated to bringing harmony to the body and soul.

Asics makes excellent running shoes in general, but at the high end of their range the Kayano and the Nimbus are standouts. Kayanos are best suited for "neutral" runners who have a perfect step and gate. The Nimbus are a bit more forgiving for those of us who run on the outer edge of one or both of our feet. I fall into this category, in that my shoes show wear on the outer edge of one of my heals. Having run in both the Kayano and the Nimbus, I would give the nod to the Nimbus as it provides a little more "support." (Note - they provide support for running, but next to no lateral support necessary in other sports such as basketball. They are best for running or spending time on your feet all day.)
This is the eleventh (or XI) version of the Nimbus. In theory each iteration would get progressively better, but that has not always been true. Version ten (X) was a bit less cushioned and slightly heavier than nine (IX). That has been cured with this latest model. It is softer and lighter (purportedly by an ounce, which sounds silly unless you run). It breathes a bit better as well.
For the fashionable crowd, the colors are much better in person than shown on the website. The black / graphite version in particular is a nice addition to the traditional white / blue color combo.Read more ›
It's funny how people will spend money on things that don't improve running or comfort but yet when you suggest to them to try out a good pair of shoes and they baulk at a shoe that is in that price range. For me its money well spent not only to improve your running but to also help you protect your knees and back from injury.
Asics keep up the awesome work on making a great shoe even better!
* Light Weight. Weight is the same for both the Nimbus 10 and 11 (12.4 oz).
* Toe-box is far roomier (too much?) in the N-11 than the 10. I prefer a tighter fit.
* Sizing in the N-11 is closer to shoe size than the N-10 which seemed to be 1/2 size smaller.
* Heel was more form fitting in the N-10.
* Offset lacing in the N-10 resulted in a tighter fit.
* Cushioning in both shoes is excellent from heel to toe. The N-11 is less "squishier" than the N-10 which is well cushioned but resulted in a firmer ride.
* I much preferred the traditional design/look of the N-11 over the N-10.
Nothing beats an Asics however, bottom line for me - the N-10 has the edge over the N-11 with its better fit from heel to toe. And with retailers looking to clear out the model, the $50 savings is notable.
I couldn't imagine wearing another brand of running shoe, and the odd experiment with Nike, Brooks, Reebok, New Balance, etc. only confirmed my belief that Asics was, and always would be, my shoe. Recently, I bought two pairs of Nimbus 11's, intending to rotate usage.
The first time I wore them, on a short (6 mile) run, a little internal nubbin created by the sewing joining two pieces of the shoe lined up directly over the first knuckle of my big toe (or, if you prefer, the tibial sesamoid of my first metatarsal). It rubbed a nice circular hole through the skin which bled all over my socks. A fluke I thought. I put on a Band-Aid, and tried again; different socks, tighter lacing; the other new pair -- each time the skin opened up at the same spot. Asymmetrical lacing may be a fine idea, but for me, it creates a rubbed spot exactly where I don't need one (actually, that would be anywhere on the foot, but an area where skin stretches over the bone
is particularly bad). My Nimbus 10's also had asymmetrical lacing, but for some reason, did not have that little nubbin the elevens do. My foot is a little wide, but otherwise not unusual. I still love Asics, but I'm doing the mail-order thing to find a couple pairs of Nimbus 10's.
Moral: Poke your finger in your new Nimbus 11's before you buy, and if you feel a little bump over the tibial sesamoid, ask your Salesperson about the return policy.
