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.

I was excited to purchase the Nimbus 19 after briefly trying the Kayano only to find a cheap replacement insole and narrow fit. They were awful and felt like some crappy New Balances. Returning these.
I just don't understand the thinking of the designers at Asics. You would think that they would understand that, even if you continue to strive towards improving the performance of a particular model, you would appreciate that (i) people who bought and liked the previous shoe would be your most obvious purchasers of new models and (ii) you are designing for the same size and type of foot.
Why is it then that the main issues that I am having with model changes is with the actual fit and size of the shoe?
I have worn a size 6 for years, including in Asics. I started with the Cumulus 12, then 13, then the 15"s in both Cumulus and Nimbus. I loved them both and continued to buy them until I could no longer find them in my size. I then bought the Cumulus 16"s, which were horrendous in many ways, but most noticeably, they were "short" in the toe box. The next option was the Nimbus 17 which was ok, although the toebox was a bit narrow and on very long runs my toes would start to feel uncomfortable. I then decided to try the Nimbus 18, but bought a 1/2 size up based on all the reviews, which fit fine. Wasn't in love with the shoe though, so when the Nimbus 19 came out, I decided to switch. Having bought 1/2 size up again, the shoe is AGAIN TOO SMALL. The cut of the front of the shoe is almost in a V shape, and so the toes rub against the side. I do run in them, but use them for shorter runs and switch to shoes with a more roomy toebox for the longer runs,
What I will say though, and why I have given 4 stars, is that other than the sizing issue, the shoe otherwise feels awesome!. The shoe is is somehow both much lighter and the tread even more cushioned than previous models. In effect, it feels like a heavily cushioned "light" trainer and is much more suited to speedwork. So as annoyed as I am with the sizing problem, I will grudgingly buy this shoe again but in a full size up this time.
The problem with this new Nimbus 19 is that the wider model (D) that I always purchase is NOT wider! It is narrower that the D model of Nimbus 18, for example. So my feet are tight inside the shoe... I wore them 3 times and quit... I'm wearing only the older Nimbus 18 purchased in October until I get a new one... I don't know if the problem is the 19 model itself or it was a mistake and the tag was mistaken... I took some photos comparing the two models showing visually the difference between them.
I don't know if it's possible to return them, because I live in Brazil and the only chance to receive another one would be next May, when my husband will be in San Diego (not in Florida where this ones were delivered). I'd like to know if the problem is the Asics 19 Nimbus model (so buying another one would not br helpful...) or if this specific pair came with the wrong tag... Please, tell me if it is possible to return it or to change it for a Nimbus 18 instead of this new 19. In the photos attached, the green?gray one is the Nimbus 18 purchased last October and the Blue/Orange is this new Nimbus 19. We can see the big difference in width between the soles. and we can see that the inside tags are the same size (9.5) and width (D - wich is the wider one for women)
Thank you very much for your time.
