very pleased with shoe performance
on February 21, 2014
I'm not an expert on Asics nimbus styles, Asics in general, or any other brand. I've now read that each year (?) this style is upgraded. Also, maybe there are special editions periodically within a particular current version. This shoe is identified as LE (limited edition). I read reviews here on this shoe, and on the gel-nimbus 14 "standard" edition. There seemed to be consensus that it was a good shoe, with occasional complaint.
I'm 58 years, male, 160-165 lbs. Not too overweight. Reasonably fit. Run for exercise approx. 30 minute, 3 to 4 mile, asphalt bike trail, florida flat. 15-20 miles per week. I was running in less expensive, off brand, trail (dirt) style shoes. Decided to try these for improved comfort, and maybe improved athletic performance. I got both benefits. Noticeably easier to maintain effort, much more enjoyable now to run. I read enough to self diagnose my gait. (normal). Ordered here online.
I found I can confirm the advice for a better shoe is worth the extra expense. Very happy with fit, color, comfort.
