    For background, I am an average runner that runs three to six miles several days a week - 2/3rds of the time on a treadmill and 1/3 of the time outside. Some seasons I kick up the miles for a marathon, but in general running is part of a cross training program. I have traditionally, oscillated between New Balance and Asics, but flirted with other brands.

    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.

    I have always been a Nike person... always buying Nike from when I was a teenager. I started doing some research when I started running about 2 years ago and bought my first pair of the Asics Nimbus Gel 10 and have never looked back. The shoes were so comfortable when fitted properly with a proper pair of socks. Now comes the Nimbus 11 and I debated on whether to purchase them or not and I'm glad I did. The shoe just fits better... the shoe is more stable (keeps the foot) from rocking on its side, not that the 10's were bad but it's just kicked up to another level. The shoe laces as well, are nicer, meaning that they hold tight when you tie them and don't come loose. Your foot feels firmly planted on the ground without some of the fatigue that you feel with other shoes.

    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!

    Like the golfer looking for a better wedge and not finding it, I bought these shoes (and every new Asics model that comes out)...fully expecting some technological design edge which will hydroplane me effortlessly across 5-10 more miles a week. Asics builds a great shoe (the best) but this shoe certainly didn't leapfrog the Nimbus 10 shoe in form or function. Here's my side-by-side comparison:

    * 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 have been an Asics fan and customer ever since I started running more seriously, about 10 years, and 18 marathons ago. I appreciated the perfect fit, and the ultimate in cushioning, first in Cumulus, then in Nimbus.
    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.
