Avoid if wide feet or overpronate,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Men's GEL-Nimbus 14 Running Shoe (Apparel)
I moved from Nimbus 12 to these shoes. I run 15K per week am 5'7" and weigh 170 lbs. I have 4E width feet and am a mild overpronator. I had experienced knee pain due to overpronation prior to the Nimbus 12 but once I got those the knee pain resolved. The Nimbus 14 were not as wide as the 12's, I would say the 14 4E was equivalent to a 2E in the 12's. Also, after running 5K in the 14's I had mild knee pain just like before the 12's. Therefore, I would only recommend this shoe if you are a neutral runner and NOT for anyone with wide feet. I am currently trying the Brooks Adrenaline since they are a true 4E and more of a stability shoe. If those don't work out, I will try the Asics Kayano. Warning for wide feet, the new Brooks Beast also runs narrow.

It sounds like I wrote that review myself. I probably won't try the Nimbus 14s re the narrow fit reviews. The Brooks Adrenaline 12 in size 8 1/2 EEEE is an excellent fit for me. The Brooks Dyad 7 in the same size felt like an EE width and were sent back. Brooks Beast fit well enough but I needed a neutral, not motion control like the Beast. (sent back). The New Balance 990v3 I have are good widthwise but fit slightly bigger than the Adrenalines. (Expensive too @$145) Good running everyone!

I'm in the same boat, I need to know if the 2E is a true 2E or should I get the 4E.
