FEATURES of the Asics Women's GEL-NIMBUS 15 Shoe.
SPECIFICATIONS of the Asics Women's GEL-NIMBUS 15 Shoe.

Fabric:

  • Lightweight and flexible synthetic textile and polyester mesh uppers offer maximum breathability and comfort; exoskeletal heel counters help cradle heels for increased support
  • 100% Polyester
  • Guidance Trusstic System integrates vertical flex-groove construction for enhanced gait and efficiency while providing midfoot structural integrity

Lining and Layers:

  • Personal Heel Fit (PHF) uses two layers of memory foam lining around the collar
  • Vertical flex groove in rubber outsoles follows the line of progression throughout the gait cycle to enhance gait efficiency

Fit:

  • Discrete eyelets disburse lace tension, for customized fit and enhanced upper comfort.
  • FluidFit upper technology combines multidirectional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapt to the athlete's foot, creating a truly customized glove-like fit
  • Exoskeletal heel counter provides improved support and creates improved heel fitting environment.
  • Discrete eyelets disperse lacing tension so you get the most comfortable and secure fit across the top of the foot

Midsole:

  • Fluid Ride midsole adds quick rebound after foot strike and it provides soft cushioning for comfort
  • Guidance Trusstic System is the integration of the Guidance Line technology from the outsole through the midsole
  • FluidRide midsole provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability
  • Guidance Line is a combination of midsole and outsole design that uses a vertical flex-groove to add flex to these structures so you can achieve the most efficient foot strike

Support and Cushioning:

  • Rearfoot and forefoot silicone-based gel inserts absorb excess shock in all directions, delivering cushioning and stability
  • Rearfoot and forefoot GEL cushioning reduces shock during impact and toe-off phases
  • High 13mm drop is ideal for heel strikers or runners who prefer a little extra heel cushioning
  • Full-length GEL cushioning
  • Gel-Nimbus is designed to deliver support for overpronation, those in need of neutral cushioning, and underpronation
  • ComforDry sockliner offers light cushioning for comfort and is treated to repel the bacteria that causes funky odors
  • Impact Guidance System (IGS) is Asic's design methodology that uses linked support, cushioning, and performance technologies and structures too complement and enhance your natural gait
  • ComforDry sockliner provides cushioning performance and anti-odor properties for a cooler, drier, healthier environment
  • Heel Clutching System is a heel-counter support that helps center your heel and midfoot during foot strike

Traction and Grip:

  • Asics's High Abrasion Rubber (AHAR) is highly durable rubber placed in critical areas under the foot to ensure maximum traction and outsole lifespan

Upper:

  • FluidFit is the combination of stretch mesh and stretch reinforcements that allow the upper to conform to the natural shape of your foot

Features:

  • 13 mm drop, heel height 25 mm, forefoot height 12 mm
  • Great for runners ranging from the underpronator to the moderate overpronator
  • APMA (American Podiatric Medical Association) Seal of Acceptance
  • 3mm of additional height on women's models helps relieve achilles tension.
  • Impact Guidance System (IGS®) helps slow pronation for an optimal gait and natural foot movement from heel strike through toe-off
  • Pronation is how a runner's foot rolls laterally between footfall and toe-off: Underpronation is when the foot rolls outwards, overpronation is when it rolls inwards, and a neutral pattern is when little rolling occurs
  • Under to neutral pronation stability.
  • 13mm drop (heel-forefoot offset) means that your heel is higher from the ground than your toes, which offers a more traditional running shoe sensation
  • Rubber sole
  • Stable platform

Run like the wind in the newest edition of the GEL-Nimbus 15 by Asics. Eliminate painful joints during ground strikes or sore ankles and feet after a workout with some of the softest shoes available. Like other Asics lines, the FluidRide gel cushioning system is dispersed among the entire foot, lessening the force of each strike and spreading the energy across a wider area. Like clouds on your feet, thanks to the Solyte midsole, the GEL-Nimbus 15 reduces the jolt of each stride and weighs less than the majority of running shoes currently on the market. Finally, the sworn enemy of any athlete-athlete's foot-is warded off by ComforDry technology that keeps your feet dry and clean during exercise. Runners are built from the ground up, and there is no better foundation than the Asics GEL-Nimbus 15.

Asics GEL-Nimbus 15 Reviews:

Reviews:

First, let me just say it was *really* hard for me to spend this much on a pair of shoes. That said, for me they have been worth every penny. I am not a runner, but walk briskly more than 100 miles a month around my hilly neighborhood, often loaded down with 10#s of ankle weights and a stroller. When I upped my game and got a treadmill all the athletic shoes I have loved before started giving me painful shin splints when used on the treadmill, a problem that I could not overcome through stretching or adjusting the incline. (Exception: Saucony Vegan Jazz Pro, purchased for casual wear, not workouts. Pain-free on the treadmill, but not ideal cushioning or support. Again, I have the stiffer/less cushy vegan version.) I had read about pronation in Zappos reviews before, and I thought I understood where I stood, but I was wrong. (I am totally neutral, as is the Gel-Nimbus.) In desperation I ended up in a local running store and the Asics Gel-Nimbus was their suggestion. There was a less expensive neutral Asics model as well, but the Nimbus felt so much better and I was desperate my husband pushed me to splurge. I came back to Zappos to order, since I had already returned so many shoes and felt guilty about all the free returns, and finally found my shoes. Compared to my Asics Gel-Kahana 6's (previously my most recent preferred pair for the neighborhood, especially when wearing ankle weights) they are far less structured, much lighter, and way more cushioned. They feel amazing, although with weights I would prefer more structure, on a treadmill (no weights) these are ideal. I often wear no-show socks, but when I wear low-cut socks instead the color from the shoe has transferred to the heal of my socks and does not wash out with detergent alone. I have Wine/White/Flash Yellow, and the "yellow" seems way more like highlighter green to me. The white Asics stripes are glittery white, and the silver and wine are very shiny. My 5 year old daughter and her friends are in love. I found the Nimbus to run small and needed my first ever 10.0. I usually wear a 9.5 in running shoes (the occasional 9.0 in Adidas) and my Asics Gel-Kahana 6's are 9.5. Back when I ordered my Kahana's I tried to go wide for a roomier toe box but found the ankle far too loose. I prefer a roomy toe box, and while I wouldn't call these wide, they certainly aren't narrow. I have logged over 200 miles in them now and I don't regret them one bit. Finding the right pair (and being able to return so many wrong ones through Zappos amazing free returns) was worth the wait.

In 2006 I bought 3 pairs Asics Gel Nimbus. They fit my foot perfectly. After that although the name stayed the same, the construction of the shoe changed. The wide and deep toe and narrow heel last that worked so well for me was discarded by Asics. Every year after 2006, I ordered Nimbus from Zappos and returned them--heel too wide and toe too shallow. But finally Asics seems to have wised up with Nimbus 15. Toe is both wide and deep, great for high arch, and heel is narrow. In 2006, I bought size 7.5 width B (my usual size in Asics). This time, 7.5 was too short. Size 8 width AA is a perfect fit. Go figure. The lightening (silver) shoe color is not quite as garish as it looks in the picture, but I could have done without the hot pink decorations.

I have been wearing Asics for years and this is the best model they've come out with in a while. I am 30 years old and have a degenerative hip and osteoarthritis and wearing this shoe means the difference between walking and not walking. They are a bit wider than the Nimbus 13 or 14 but I like the extra space in the toe box. Awesome shoe. I think I'm going to order another pair of these just because I like this model so much more.

If you have a wide foot; high arch, and need cloud-like cushioning in the forefoot, the Asics Gel-Nimbus 15 are a dream sequence! I am a toe-strike runner (with slight ligament damage in my right foot), who was horrified by the 13s & 14s, but now I'm back! The only negative: I hate all 3 color choices...ended up getting the purple, but there is way too much day-glo in them! Only good if you're running at night!

I have tried and returned so many shoes including brands like Brooks and Nike. Nothing compared to these shoes. They are worth every penny for comfort. I wear them at work and walking/running. Asics and Saucony are the best brands for comfort/cushioning. You won't be disappointed.
