    About ASICS
    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… Read the story & more in Amazon's ASICS Store.

    New for 2012, this is the 14th iteration of one of Asics flagship models.

    Overview: The latest version in the lineage remains true to its predecessors. If you liked the Nimbus in the past, you will like this one too. While Asics claims to have made a significant number of changes to the new model, most are superficial. The primary differences are:

    (1) a slightly narrower profile (meaning the soul does not flair out as much), though the toe box retains about the same interior width for your toes;

    (2) weight has been reduced by about 4 ounces per pair, while cushioning remains as good as ever; and

    (3) flashier colors have been added to suggest a more premium line.

    In addition to the more subtle blue/black version, the original release includes two jazzier color combinations: a neon yellow / blue and a black / "digital neon." (If past models are any indication, more color combinations through the year.)

    Brief Background: I am 6'1", 175, and run three to seven miles several days a week - primarily on city streets and paved running trails, sometimes on the treadmill. Once or twice a year I will train up to the half-marathon to full-marathon level for a short window, but running is generally part of my cross training program. The Nimbus 14s are probably my 7th or 8th version to run in of the Nimbus line. (I also periodically buy a set of Kayanos, but prefer the Nimbus for their slightly higher level of cushioning.)

    About Asics: For years Asics has had two popular models: the Kayano (now on its 18th iteration) and the Nimbus. These were the models that first regularly broke the $100 per pair mark. Now, so many iterations later, they are retailing for $140 - $150 per pair.

    Size: 10.5 D(M) USColor: Neon Yellow/Navy/Lightning Verified Purchase
    I am a neutral runner who averages only about 10 to 15 miles a week. For years I ran on the Asics Kinsei and loved them, except for the price. I eventually tried the Brooks Ghost, a less supportive shoe that was quick and had a lot of go! The cushioning lacked immensely though for longer runs but I kept them around as a cross training shoe for speed and strength drills.

    As my Kinsei were seeing their last days and my feet tired of running in the Ghosts (my shins were yelling at me in these shoes), I was back in the market for a shoe that had the quality of the Kinsei, the speed of the Ghosts and a price range that was actually manageable. After a a few weeks of going through Runners World, researching my running style and impact, and eventually looking at the points on my foot that apply the most pressure, I came across the Asics Nimbus 14. I had tried the 13 and 12s during the previous years but was just not jazzed by the feel and responsiveness.

    The improvements in the 14s made it feel like a whole new shoe though! The comfort and support are just right for my neutral running style. I have a "normal" arch and run mostly on my mid and forefoot. In some reports, I saw something about a slower responsiveness due to the cushioning in the shoe, but I felt like they had plenty of get up and go when I pushed the run. The shoe is also well ventilated and prevents any overheating while on my 3-4 miles runs. I usually integrated hills with my workouts and the shoe had plenty of grip and stability for the ups and downs as well.

    The best part of the shoe is that it provides you (me) with one of the best feelings, not worrying about what's on my feet. I can just run and focus on MY workout. They gave me this feeling within day one.

    I have been wearing Nimbus for the past 6 years. I love the cushioning, but I find that the Nimbus 14 is narrow for my foot. It will stretch because it is made of fabric, but I wish the toe box area had been designed a bit wider. I also preferred the off center lacing of past Nimbus models. This is not my favorite ASICS Nimbus design.

    I have been running since quite a few years now. Over the time I have been getting shin splints and running more than 3 miles would be extremely painful for my feet. This was really frustrating as I had enough stamina to go beyond 3 miles but my feet were keeping me off. I tried a number of shoes to address this issue and none of them provided the level of comfort the Nimbus 14 had. The cushioning is awesome and it feels like running on a carpet. Apart from the cushioning they are flexible too and provide a comfortable ride. Although I would not recommend them for training and they are not meant to. Gone are the days of shin splints for me and now I can easily run 5 miles without the excruciating pain at the end of it. Thank you asics for making such a wonderful (and good looking) product. Feels liberating.

    If you are looking for a neutral running shoe with lots of cushioning than I highly recomend the Nimbus 14. If your not sure if you have a neutral running gate than go to your local running store (not a chain) and have them asses your gate and buy from them. Without supporting them, this valuable advice/service is gone (trust me I Love Amazon but for running shoes, etc...).

    This is the lightest Nimbus yet but feels even more cushioned than the previous model. I have an average to narrow foot and the 13 also felt too snug in toe box area, the 14 does not feel too tight for my foot. Fit is the most important aspect of any running shoe, but is an individual thing, so always try on first and jog around the store.

    Assuming it's a good fit for your foot (this shoe runs true to size and for most folks this shoe should be a good fit) than I highly reccommend this shoe. I intentially try/buy other brands from time to time just to mix it up and see, over time, how other top line shoes feel/work. For me, hands down, Asics is the best in terms of comfort/fit, quality, and cushioning. And, in all three of these areas, the Nimbus 14 is the best running shoe to date.
