    Nimbus 17 was my fastest Asics shoe. This shoe is slightly narrower inside, way narrower out side. The sole on Nimbus 17 flares out, the 18 much less so, see photo.

    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!

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    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!

    ASICS GEL Nimbus 18s are perfect for me!

    By Dane

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    The GEL 18s are the most comfortable running and walking shoes I have ever had going back to GEL Nimbus 13. Also much better than my ASICS Kayanos which I could never adjust to. No break-in period was necessary with the 18s. I was concerned about some of the reviews of the 18s but after putting about 80 miles on them, none of the issues reported affected me so I give the 18s 5-stars. I have alternate pairs and am now tracking the miles accurately to see how they hold up as I get close to 300 miles on them. ASICS GEL Nimbus 18s are perfect for me. If you want the cushion without mushiness, consider the 18s. Give them a try on the 90-day VIP wear them and love them program.

    Very comfortable shoe when your walking around the mall, fills like your walking on a cloud. However when i went on a run with them I got shin splints so bad that I had to stop running, had to return the shoe.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

      I have been wearing the Nimbus for over a decade now. Been wearing it back when the version was in the single digits. I really love the shoe even more now that thy have gone to the "fluidfit". I like the single piece upper. Annual typical use:1 marathon, 1 1/2 ultra, 3 1/2 marathons, 1 15k run, and a slew of 5k's thru out the year. Shoe has never let me down. Earlier models had a narrower toe box, but the last several models have plenty of room in the toe box, again.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

      I'm 45, 180 lbs., run approx. 25 miles/week. With former ankle injuries, I like cushion! These shoes are comfortable & easy on the feet. These provide excellent cushion & my foot feels very secure & stable. Felt broken in during 2nd run. With approximately 80 miles on now, these show zero wear.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

      I've been running in Gel-Nimbus 16s since they were first available. For a neutral, cushioned shoe, the 16 was the holy grail. It was light, it fit amazingly, and it lasted for hundreds of miles (I put 1783 miles behind me split between 3 pairs). Alas, the time came when they needed to be replaced.

      So I get the 17. BAD SHOE. What they did with the 3D printed upper just made it super uncomfortable. Fret not! The 18 is just around the corner! WORSE SHOE. Very bad. Very very bad.

      What they've done with the 18 is taper the toe box very severely compared to the 16, and add nearly an entire inch to the top of the heel wrap. This means that you either have to live with cramped toes, or you go a full size up and live with a heel wrap that is so high up the heel that it will rub up a good blister no matter what.

      I gave these shoes a good try. Today, I'm returning them. They were a bad decision.
