Some things just get better with age, and the Asics Men's GEL-Nimbus 14 Running Shoe is no exception. This 14th iteration of the Asics best-seller features a new slimmer profile, lighter weight, and more breathability, all while maintaining its reknown stability and cushy ride. Its combination of features make it ideal for runners from severe under-pronators to mild over-pronators, with high to normal arches.
The Asics Gel Nimbus 14 Running Shoe is a cushioned ride for neutral runners, and slight under or over-pronators. The Heel Clutching System™ keeps your heel back which naturally controls your gait. The upper material has been improved to stretch in key zones and provide more breathability. Asics is also using a new midsole compound to further reduce the weight. The result is a comfortable, low-profile running shoe that supports without being too stiff.
The Asics GEL-Nimbus 14 Running Shoe for Men brings with it a sleeker profile than its predecessors while maintaining its famously plush, yet stable ride. Key improvements include reduction in weight, increased breathability, and an all new design sure to please runners ranging from the underpronator to the moderate overpronator.

These shoes provide great stability and comfort. I have bad feet and these really help. They are durable and have great grip for roads. They are not very flexible or light but it does not bother me to much. I use them as a running shoe and a casual shoe and they work great for either.
Start off by saying...I'm not a runner. I just got these looking for a comfortable, every day shoe...and they fit that bill. Size ran true for me.
