I have normal arches but I also over pronate which is a dilemma in itself and finding the right running shoes has been very difficult till I Asics 3030.
they have helped with my shin splints and they are so comfortable and well cushioned now all I have to think about is my running and not my feet.
Hope Asics always carries them.
Still in awe of these shoes and want them back !
Tried the replacement Asics GT 3000 and didn't like them at all.

I probably used the Nimbus for 30 years and after having turned my ankle twice over a 20 year period i thought i should try something more stable. Right away i could feel more stability in the heel area with the 3030's.. Plus my foot seemed to sit down more into the shoe.. I can't blame the Nimbus totally because i think alot had to do with the fleetfeet inserts i was using. They had me to high in the shoe.. And when i was doing some cross country running my foot turned when coming up a hill and turning.. I'm 5' 10" 180lbs.. I like these shoes i think they do give me more side to side protection. Where as the Nimbus was a little more flexible but not much protection side to side.. The 3030's seem to have good flexibility for being more stable.. i like that

Goodbye planters fasciitis! I never cared about running shoes until I went over 40. I would wear whatever was on sale. Heck, I had a pair of Nike shocks for 8 years! I did some research and found a great shoe finder on runnersworld.com. These were on the website for those with minor issues. I bought these and the asics gt2170's. The GTs have great arch support, but are really heavy. The 3030's are very light and seem to be made for slight pronation. I use the GTs for everyday walking, and the 3030s for running. I tried minimal shoes a few years ago, and they really mess up my feet. I can run super fast in them, but with a price. I suggest a slow break in period if you go minimal. I run 11 to 15 miles a week.
