Not for my foot,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Women's GEL-Nimbus 15 Running Shoe (Shoes)
I was so excited to get my new pair of Asics, but alas, it's not for my foot. I wore it one hour around the house and my feet felt like they're burning. I have:
I thought this shoe with its plentiful cushioning would be right, but I wouldn't take a chance on something that hurts after a half hour, so I sent them back. I'm sure the shoe would make plenty of other feet happy though :-} It's quite cute looking. More pink than I expected from the picture, but very stylish that way.

I also have a wide foot and high arch. I bought the Gel-Nimbus 12 baout 2 years ago and they work very well for me. I would like to purchase the Gel 15 but I am wondering, is the shoe you bought a B-medium width? Mine are a wide width and they are very comfortable.

I ordered a wide. If I were to do it over, I would order a size up. Asics may run a little tight.

If I were you... do you know what kind of foot you are? This is a NEUTRAL shoe. Suggestion is to
go into a Running store and find out what kind of feet you are. If you are an Over Pronater this shoe
wouldn't work for you.
I was tested as a Neutral and I've put on 48 miles on these already and they are perfect.

I went to a much respected running store in Salt Lake and was told that Asics are the narrowest of women's running shoes. Hence the wide was the solution in the Nimbus. I have since switched to the Brooks Ghost 5 and I absolutely love them! They are perfect for my wide neutral shoe needs and I wear a medium width in the Brooks.

I was looking for a cross trainer to replace my gel nimbus 11's (which I LOVE, but Im not much of a runner) and I tried the Gel Envigor line and the arch was too high for me, so you may want to try those (though they are a cross training shoe)!

Loved the Asics 13. Now the 15 is narrower (even though I ordered wide) and it does not feel as cushiony, what happened. Somewhat dissapointed. Thinking perhaps I should go 1/2 size up, since it is really hitting my toe.

After testing some sizes, my salesman had be go a full size up from my norm in non-running shoes. When I did, I found Brooks shoes too wide for me. The Nimbus was just right--which I guess means I agree that Asics run narrower than Brooks. I can't really speak for other brands.

One time I bought a stability shoe on an employee's recommendation (he was wrong...), and had a similar burning pain up the outside of one of my legs. Found out a stability shoe is for over pronaters. I wonder what your pronation is? I under-pronate on one foot and am neutralish on the other. At running stores they'll put you on a treadmill and video your feet from behind to see how they roll and tell you.
Also, maybe try buying men's running shoes? I often find them far more comfortable and they usually have a bigger toe box, and are wider. They aren't as cute, but I often buy them anyway because I have high arches, long toes, and a wide foot as well as some arthritis and it's better than getting old people shoes. I find that the insert I have to use fits better in men's shoes as well. I know I also used to have good luck with Reeboks when I was younger, so that brand may be worth a look.
