These Shoes Rock! I'm buying a second pair

By Todd

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

Great Shoe!
Very comfortable and love this color combo it has just enough pizazz without looking ridiculous if you wear them with jeans. The color never looks dirty either as I have a tendency to hook my toes behind the chair legs whenever I sit and these shoes still look brand new. I plan on buying a second pair just for running as I have been wearing these everywhere (work, gym, running).

I'm just returning to running after a 6 month layoff due to rotator cuff surgery and found myself buying Asics again. I've tried them all but I always find myself going back to Asics. I love the Gel technology...it just seems to hold up better than the rest. I been running in these pain free in my legs so the proof is in the pudding. No hot spots and toe box feels great. I'm currently running 20 miles/week.

I'm 5'6" 155lbs with a neutral arch.
I bought these a half size up and they feel great. I ran 8.5 miles last weekend and they felt great.
I love these laces too..they are plenty long enough and they stay tied. I find it isn't necessary to double knot them.

I will not be buying another ASICS GEL-NIMBUS SHOE !

By Manfred

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

Can someone please tell me why the running shoe manufactures completely change their shoes almost every year. When ever I find a pair of shoes that fit me well and are comfortable to run in they change the style and the material they are made of. Ten or more years ago I could buy the same shoe for many years and I was a happy runner. I am not happy with these Asics Gel-Nimbus 18, first of all while the left shoe has a nice straight sole, the right one is warped and I can fell it is different as I run. The quality control on many manufactures shoes is non existing. I will not buy another pair of these shoes.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

Been running in Nimbus's for a couple years now. I'm 220lbs, run 25m/week and have wide feet. These shoes are always comfortable and cushiony. Only complaint is I tend to wear them out after about 300 miles. The 18s really are the best shoes I've run in.

Nice Shoe with a very stiff sole

Best Uses

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

I am a 220lb, 5'11'' with an underpronation. I have had great success with the Gel-Nimbus series since the 13, however this sole of this shoe is much too stiff and after 10km, I start to feel shin pain. It is a nice shoe, like the colors etc. I have only worn it for a break-in period of 5 runs with a total of 55 miles but it still feels too stiff. I also bought a 2E width as there many write ups complaining about the toe box being too small. Sized up 1 size with the increased width.

Delivery was very prompt and efficient

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

from undisclosed

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.

    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.

        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.
