Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

I love Asics shoes because they basically don't change from year to year. This is almost identical to the first of the GT series I started using over twenty years ago, spun off into a neutral design more suitable to my high arches. I switched to Asics because my previous favorite shoe from Nike would mutate so much from year to year that it was like buying a different shoe every time. The Nimbus may or may not suit your needs, but if it does, it's a great shoe and you can fairly assume that the next year's model will be the same except for minor cosmetic changes.

Size Up According to Instructions When Ordering

By Roger

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

Although being replaced by the Nimbus 19, this model is still a great neutral, cushioned shoe. Most of the negative reviews focus on sizing. I suggest you size up 1/2 size from your "normal" running shoe size, not your foot size. Example: I normally wear a 10.5 running shoe for a foot size of 10....the size 11 gives a good fit without constriction.

The best shoe I've had in several years. I've worn GT2000 and Kayano for years and like them, but the Nimbus has great cushioning and is very comfortable.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

I´m 1.73 mt. high, 70 kg. I run 30 km. weekly and have had never problems with this model, since the nimbus 10. This ones are too tight in the rearfoot and have been dealing with blisters just under my ankles, both of them, for a whole year. It´s difficult to send the shoes back because I live in Peru and bought them in the USA.

The delivery service was fine.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    It is sad that the Asics design team took a wonderful shoe like the Nimbus 17 and made the 18 feel less cushioned and comfortable and narrowed the toe box for some unknown reason.
    I tried the 19 in the store and did not like that feel at all, this seems to be the reaction of many past Nimbus lovers

    I don't run very much during the winter. When I do get out, my legs usually get very sore after my run. With the nimbus sneakers, that has gone away. The cushion is unbelievable.

    Super comfortable but poor sole durability

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    Been wearing the Nimbus through several generations and have always been happy. This is my second pair of 18s and I'm just not happy with how they wear. I'm a neutral runner and for the outter tread to wear so quickly tells me the tread materials have changed for the worse. I only got 250 miles on my last pair before I had worn the outter through to the foam. Going to run a half in them next week and then will switch to the Glycerin.
