The show itself was very nice and I loved the colors and NYC design, however I have the Asics Nimbus 15 in a different color and found that these ones don't fit as well. The toe box is much smaller so I had no toe room and my toes became numb after 15 min of wearing during exercise class. They are being returned for a different pair which I can try on first (at a local store).

I really like this shoe. Asics fits my narrow foot very well, and I had previously tried on the Nimbus in my local running store. As other reviews have stated, the NYC special edition runs smaller, about 1/2 size. I wear a 6.5 in the Nimbus and ordered a 7 in the NYC Nimbus. It fits perfectly and feels wonderful. It's a great shoe for a neutral runner or a mild overpronator like me. My molded inserts fit perfectly in the shoe and I appreciate the cushioned, comfortable ride. I'm looking forward to spending a lot of miles with this shoe!

I love my Asics. I thought these where a great price. Cool NY theme...but not worth it. After looking at them right out of the box the quality was not there. I have had many Nimbus running shoes. I live in them as well as jog. These where sad. Sent them back.

The Good: These shoes are very cushy while being really firm and supportive. I have worn the ASICS Kayano 18 for the last few years and really liked them, but as they have grown worn, I decided it was time to find a shoe the didn't allow so much of my weight to roll to the outside of my heel when walking/jogging. I have a bad ankle from an old injury and the extra roll only makes me sore and fearful of another sprain. So, I did some online research and a "find my shoe" wizard and they came up with the ASICS Cumulus. I didn't want to order without trying, so I tried them on at a store and didn't feel they offered much cushion. The salesman suggested the Nimbus and I tried on a pair of silver/bright coral ones-- heavenly! They feel really good on and allow cushion while maintaining the stability I needed. I have a narrow heel and normal/wide fore foot, but these hug just right. The arch seems to be placed well and pretty good as far as support goes- I have fallen arches. They have a nice full cushioned feel throughout from heel to toe, and the impact at the heel is much less obvious with these than with my old Kayanos (I'm a heavy heel striker). The ones I tried at the store were almost $200. I came back home and found these-- same kind/different color and the price was AMAZING. So, I ordered a 9.5 B(M)US size... the same as my Kayanos and the same size as I tried on in the store.

The Bad: The shoes arrived today. I anxiously put on my typical socks and slipped them on. The left shoe was nearly a perfect fit. It was a bit snug against my big toe, and I could have used 1/4" more wiggle room. I knew they'd stretch, so I figured it would be okay- only now my inserts for my heel spur/arch won't fit in them. On the plus side- these are so supportive and cushy I don't need the inserts with them. The bad news is the right shoe was about 1/4" too short not counting the wiggle room I'd prefer. I realize many of us have one foot longer/bigger than the other, but typically in a 9.5 there is enough room for me to compensate for this. Not so with this particular shoe. I tried different socks, then no socks, still the right shoe was uncomfortably too short! I measured the soles (which strangely were not equal on each shoe- one had the arch and beginning toe section set back farther than the other). Also, I measured the top from toe to heel. No doubt about it, the right shoe is 1/4" shorter than the left! Overall the whole right shoe is a quarter inch off sole and top, front to back. By the way, I was aware of the other reviews that had stated that the shoe runs smaller and is shorter. I should have gone with 1/2 size up the first time. I honestly don't know why I didn't. They definitely do not fall into the same size guidelines as my Kayanos did- even with inserts the 9.5 in those are plenty roomy. >.<

The Ugly: In the picture the orange is BRIGHT. It's all good, it looked kind of cool against the white and purple. Well, out of the box the BRIGHT is more of an OMGOSH I'M GOING HUNTING?!?!? Yes, it is THAT color orange. Safety vest, don't shoot me, can you see me now ORANGE. WHEW- it is beyond neon, and beyond bright, it is LOOK OUT HERE I COME with traffic cones on my feet! The orange is a bit much, but for the price, I could live with it.

Shipping Speed: The first pair came in two days, as ordered. I'll be sending those back and expecting a prompt credit for them. The return process has been easy so far- free return, UPS will pick the first pair up tomorrow.

Final Thoughts: All this in consideration, I'm giving them 3 stars and another chance. It IS a highly comfortable shoe, if only it fit right. And for the price (Only 70 bucks with the current discount), I'm willing to try another pair, just a half size larger (10 B(M)US) and see how it goes. One thing for sure- people will see me coming in these (oh my eyes).

I'll remain optimistic and update when I get the new pair. Strangely that won't be for 4 days according to Amazon- even though I ordered them 2-day shipping, but I'm assuming it's because Thursday is Thanksgiving. ;)

This model is not the exact same cut as the nimbus 15. It is tighter in the toe box and shorter. I wear 10.5 in other nimbus models, but need an 11 in this special version. I even measured the 10.5 of this model and the normal 10.5 and could see it was slightly shorter. Just small enough to cause discomfort in running conditions.

This is my 6th pair of asics gel nimbus, and they are the only shoes I will run in. They hold up well.

I read a review that said these weren't a good Nimbus shoe. But I ignored the review because I love the color purple. The review was absolutely correct, they don't have the teardrop shape that I am used to with Gel Nimbus shoes. They were really uncomfortable for running. So I use them to take long walks and kick boxing class. If you are a runner familiar with Gel- Nimbus please don't do it to yourself. I wanted to punch myself for ignoring the review that predicted all of the issues I would have and did have:-(

I actually tried these on at a local discount store, so already new the size I wanted, but I didn't like the color. I found these on Amazon, love the colors and the price could not be beat.

I always buy the Gel-Nimbus shoes. They always fit and feel so good. But these shoes fit to tight. I always buy a 1/2 larger to give me room when I run. My toes however are very close to then end of the shoe.
