Return to awesome!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Women's GEL-Nimbus 15 Running Shoe (Shoes)
If you liked the Gel-Nimbus 13's (as so many people do!), then I think you'll love the 15's. I searched and searched for a replacement pair for my 13's and couldn't find any in my size. I tried the 14's and they felt terrible on my feet. I was so excited when the 15's came out because I read a review that they were similar to the older, more cushy, models. I bought them without even trying them on, and I am ecstatic with how they fit :) I have tendonitis in one of my feet and after wearing these on 10 runs now, I have no pain whatsoever.
To recap: if you like/need a cushioned running sneaker or just liked/loved the gel-nibus 13's, then get the 15's! Thank you asics for bringing back such a comfy shoe!
Edited to add: I ordered these shoes with regular shipping and they arrived the next day. Yay!

I just bought a pair of Asics Gel-Nimbus 14 L.E (Limited Edition-Purple/Lime) women's running shoes. Read reviews on the Gel-Nimbus 14's (all pretty good reviews but some DID state the same as you mentioned above but the "Limited Edition" ones that I bought felt better/different)? Not sure why that would be true? Anyways I do like them but they are not as cushioned as I had hoped. Can I ask why you "hated" the 14's? Just deciding if I should exchange them for these (& they are cheaper to boot)..thanks!

I second the comment! I loved my 13's and was very unhappy with the 14s.....Gel Nimbus 15 are a return to greatness :)

Makes me sad, I hate my 13's. Loved the nimbus line until the 13's, and keep hoping they'll go back to how they were.

I loved my 14s and already have 2 pairs of the 15 in red both in witdh D. Those fit fine if a tiny bit too loose on the front - nothing that would compromise my running, just pleasantly loose. I need to get an other pair (as my 14 is really falling apart) but I dont want a 3rd in red. Anyone knows what the difference is between a width B and D? is it a lot? Thanks

I brought the exact same 14L.E's simply because they're ASISCs Nimbus and well, is my favorite colors! I thought it was just me in feeling the difference in the 14L.E Nimbus. Its primarly the cushioning. Well its there, there is a big difference between the 13's and the 14's. I trained for a marathon (and ran it) in the 13's. The 14's don't hold up to six miles. I don't hate them as other buyers, but I primarily use them for tennis or cross-training versus long distance runs.

Thank you SO much! I've been looking everywhere to replace my Gel-Nimbus 13's because I didn't think anything would be comparable. Did you have a problem with sizing?
