Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

Typical great Asics running shoe. I have extra wide feet and weigh 190 lbs. I also run 20+ miles a week. The last four running shoes I have purchase are Asics. I have completed three, five mile runs. My feet and joints feel great after the runs. I am happy with this purchase.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

I had a full hip replacement and was finally given the ok to resume some running. I tried a couple of different shoes before settling on the Nimbus. So far so good. The shoes felt great right out of the box. After 3 years of not running due to the hip, I quickly was able to resume running pain free.

Good, dependable shoe but ankle pads hurt

By Stephen

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

Same great cushion as always but the foam around the ankle area cuts into my ankles. The shoes are getting worn in so the discomfort is decreasing but the first few runs were rough. Overall, though, a good, dependable, solid shoe at a good price.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    I started using the gel nimbus 17s and loved them, but can't find them in my size. For a 12.5 2E width shoe, Asics only offers one color choice but really wish they had more options for us 2E wide runners. Got the 18s for a great price and like them just as much as the 17s.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

        I loved the Nimbus 17's and find these a huge disappointment. Had to size up a half size, breaking down too quickly, taking some of the joy out of runs. Nowhere near the cushioningof previous models. I see the 19s are coming out soon, hopefully they'll be better.

          Filled out the shoe dog information and these were amoung the selected shoes for me. Truly love these shoes! Great support. great fit! Comfortable, supportive shoe that has me doing pain free cardio again. Run-walk the dog 2 times daily with minimum foot pain. Anyone who has experienced plantar fasciatis can relate at the elation of pain free excercise. Yes, for heavy athletic guys needing a stable and comfortable shoe I fully promote my Asics!

          It took trying 2 sizes of shoes--my normal 9 - 2E were too tight, so had to expand to a 4E (the salesman told me that the Nimbus 18's were cut someone smaller than the 16 & 17s), but once I did that, the shoes were great. After a very brief break-in period, I am now transitioned to these as my primary walking shoes. Great support and comfort!
