In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co., Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which, when translated, expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. Today, ASICS offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories dedicated to bringing harmony to the body and soul.

Also, Amazon is AWESOME. I work weekends in a store that sells shoes, and the shoes were less expensive for me to get on Amazon.com than at my own store with my employee discount! Also, I opted for Free Super Saver Shipping -- I actually got the product delivered by UPS the very next day. I'm sure it's a coincidence because I didn't live far from where the product was shipped, but I still think it's great! I <3 Amazon.com!!!!
Some of the features of this shoe are:
- Off-set laces. Instead of lacing straight up and down, they lace with a slant to the inside of your soles. This reduces pressure on the top of your foot.
- Asics IGS cushion system. They have a gel cushion that absorbs impact for hard surfaces like roads, sidewalks, and treadmills.
- Breathable material, so your feet don't sweat and slip around.
The only reason this shoe did not get five stars is because of the lacing pattern. I find that the off-set laces have me pushing more to the outside of my foot when I am running, instead of a center push. This side push needs more side cushion inside the shoe.
Be forewarned: The Asics Gel Nimbus 12 runs narrow (but fits true to size lengthwise).
The quality looks good and they were clean (not a factory second and not a return/worn shoe. Yay). It's the first time I ordered shoes online and was worried I'd get some B-grade, store second. One of the gel pads on the side looks a bit rough, but I don't think that qualifies this for a B-grade shoe.
The item I ordered and received were size 8 Wide. However, they are still on the narrow side, especially when compared to the Asics Gel Kayano. I own a pair of Gel Kayano 16, size 8 Medium and this Gel Nimbus 12, size 8 Wide has the exact same footprint as the Kayano MEDIUM width.
So, end point: These realistically fit like a Medium Width.
P.S. The cushioning is fantastic! Cloud-like is how I'd describe it. I suppose that's why they're called the Gel Nimbus, haha. Since they were half the new, retail price (these are last year's model), I'll keep them.
I seriously can't say enough great things about them. Stop reading this and order them! You won't be sorry :)
