Product Description

The GEL-Nimbus 14 is an update to the GEL-Nimbus running shoe and offers a sleeker profile than its predecessors while maintaining its famously plush, yet stable ride. Key improvements include reduction in weight, and increased breathability. Still featuring Guidance Line technology which helps to maintain your gait. This longtime favorite is built on a wide platform, making for exceptional comfort and stability. Great new fall color!

The Asics Gel Nimbus is a cushioned/neutral shoe - cushioned/neutral shoes are for those that have high or normal arches. These shoes are able to handle long runs and protect the joints but don't have the extra medial support that efficient runners don't need.

  • Colors: Lightning/Purple/Electric Blue
  • Impact guidance system that enhances the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off.
  • Biomorphic Fit ® Upper Stretch material strategically placed on the upper helps to reduce buckling and the potential for irritation.
  • DuraSponge outsole for superior durability and cushioning with less weight.
  • Solyte midsole material that is lighter than Asics standard EVA and SpEVA, combined with improved cushioning and durability.
  • ComforDry sockliner that provides optimal cushioning performance in a cooler, drier, healthier environment.
  • Gel Cushioning System in forefoot and rearfoot.
  • Personalized heel fit.
  • 3M Reflectivity
  • Average weight: 9.8 oz. (Size 9)

    Having committed to the New Balance 890 for over two years, it broke my heart to discover my favorite running shoe was no longer available. After reading dozens of sensational reviews about this being the best cushioning shoe for a neutral gait runner, I had to try it out for myself. Out of the box, the shoe felt like a dream - support in all the right places, comfortable spacing in the toe box and decent arch support (I run with inserts anyway due to fallen arches).

    Unfortunately, I took these babies for a spin and wound up with outer knee pain from hell. I average about 30 miles per week in my New Balance shoes with absolutely no knee pain or quad tension. 5 miles in the Asic Gel Nimbus left my knee screaming and my quads miserably knotted. The Gel Nimbus seemed to cause my foot to overpronate dramatically and ruined my natural running stride. The shoe also runs about a half size small. I normally run in an 8, but these shoes were uncomfortably snug.

    My take: Not for use with inserts, and definitely not for anyone that has a tendency to overpronate. I replaced them with the Mizuno Enigma Wave (also a neutral cushioning shoe) and seem to be having pretty good luck.

    Great shoe! If you are a neutral runner this is the perfect distance shoe. I've been running in Asics for years, and they've always served me well.

    I bought this shoe after it received rave reviews in Runner's World Magazine. In retrospect, I would recommend all runners who are going to spend a lot of money and many hours pounding the pavement in a running shoe to go to a running or sporting goods store and try on several pairs before deciding on a style. This shoe did not fit me properly. I am a neutral runner, which are the runners the shoes are supposed to be made for. However, when I ran in them, they caused me to underpronate, and after I advanced in speed and incline, it eventually gave me a quadriceps injury, which required a few days to recuperate from. I went to a running store, and they told me they fit right, so it wasn't that. I am not the only person who has had trouble with these shoes. Perhaps they would work best for overpronators.

    I needed a shoe to replace my worn out Kayanos. I decided to try something new. I like these shoes. The soles have more cushioning than the Kayanos. I did have to go up 1/2 a size from my old shoes (about 2 yrs old), but the new Kayanos fit the same as these. I only gave these a 4 because the blue and purple colors make the shoe very ugly! They were however the only color choice I had.

    I have been wearing the Asics Gel Nimbus shoe since number 9. It has been a very comfortable shoe. This shoe is fairly comfortable with the exception of 2 annoyances. First, after wearing the shoe for 4-5 days, I found at the start of the lacing hole nearest to my big toe, there is a tightness that is causing pain. I loosened the laces in this area to relieve the pain but now the shoe is not as supportive as it should be. The 2nd disppointment is that the heel cups are squishing down and despite repeated reforming of the material by hand, the heel cup remains too squishy and flexible to hold my foot in a secure way. Hopefully Asics designers will take notice and make adjustments for number 15!
