Asics GEL-Cumulus 15 Lite-Show -

In the Asics Men's Gel-Cumulus 15 Lite-Show Running Shoe, you stand apart from the crowds, or in this case, apart from the dark. Lite-Show technology shines brightly, almost eclipsing technical updates to this neutral, cushioned running shoe. Reflective uppers and glow-in-the-dark gel pads send light back from where it came, so oncoming traffic is more likely to see you pounding the pavement. When you electrify your blinking armband and zip up your reflective vest, the Cumulus is the finishing touch that takes you from sort-of lit to being a full-on running Christmas tree.
The 10mm heel-toe drop compromises between hard heel strikers and minimalist runners. Gel cushioning in the heel and toe uses gel to absorb footstrike impact to give you a softer run over the long haul. Asics' Impact Guidance System helps the shoe follow your foot from heel to toe for a smooth transition as you land and leap forward. Together, the Guidance Trusstic System and Guidance line work to economize your gait and offer midfoot structural integrity.
Updated with a Solyte midsole provides a cushioned ride without adding unwanted ounces, and welded overlays now extend through the midfoot for a secure but not restrictive fit. Two layers of foam in the heel conform to your foot's shape, letting you personalize the fit of the shoe for greater comfort and stability. The ComforDry Sockliner is like a whistle or bell that you didn't order, but quickly come to love. This liner adds a bit of cushion for a softer footfall and has antimicrobial properties to help reduce the stink factor of your shoe.

Lining and Layers:

  • Guidance Trusstic System integrates Guidance Line while allowing for midfoot structural integrity
  • P.H.F (Personal Heel Fit) has 2 layers of memory foam that line the collar and mold to the heel
  • Guidance Line, a vertical flex groove designed for enhanced gait efficiency

Support and Cushioning:

  • ComforDry Sockliner provides cushioning performance and anit-odor properties
  • Gel cushioning under impact areas, toe and heel


  • Open mesh upper, welded overlays


  • Heel Clutching system, exoskelton heel counter
  • Impact Guidance System, ASICS design philosophy to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off
  • Solyte misole
  • APMA (American Podiatric Medical Association) Seal of Acceptance
  • Reflectivity designed to enhance visibility during low light hours

"This little brother to the ultra-plush GEL-Nimbus measures up in nearly every way. It sits almost as high off the ground, boasting plenty of foam underfoot to protect you from the road. 'The cushioning is good, but not overboard,' says Melissa Congleton, of East Lansing, Michigan, who admits to being an extreme heel-striker. The forefoot features a two-piece GEL unit, bigger than the on one previous models. Even so, the shoe remains fairly flexible. This is due in part to a new outsole configuration; better segmentation of the rubber patches allows for deeper flex grooves. The shoe's upper received subtle tweaks, like lighter, welded-on overlays that now extend back through the mid-foot. 'My feet feel secure, but not restrained,' says Betsy Daly, of Emmaus, Pennsylvania."

Asics GEL-Cumulus 15 Lite-Show Reviews:


The Gel-Cumulus 15 offers great cushioning without going overboard. It's a bit firmer than the Gel-Nimbus -- that makes it a more responsive shoe. I don't feel like I'm wallowing in excess cushion. It's also pretty stable -- it's not a motion control or even a stability shoe, but its wide base makes it a good choice for neutral runners and even slight overpronators. The Lite-Show style includes more reflectivity than the standard shoes, but the gel does not glow in the dark as the Zappos summary says. Only the Gel-Nimbus Lite-Show shoes include glow-in-the-dark gel. Not a big deal, of course. Only demerit I'd give this shoe is that the laces are too short if you like to use the last eyelets to lock in the heel.

This is a great shoe! It really does feel like you are running on a cloud. I can't speak to the build quality but feels solid, I will update after getting a few more miles under my feet. Overall, very comfortable shoe.
