Women's ASICS® GEL-NIMBUS® 18 :: Just when you thought this famously revered ride couldn't get any better, meet the newly updated Women's ASICS® GEL-Nimbus® 18! Experience an even better fit and feel from this latest edition that features a more supportive Heel-Clutching System™, and new 3D Printed FluidFit® upper that allows for a more customizable fit and foot hold. Plus, the new Convergence GEL® on the new GEL-Nimbus® 18 will help dissipate shock better and increase the overall effectiveness of the cushioning material.

  • Guidance Trusstic System®: Enhances gait efficiency while providing midfoot structural integrity
  • ComforDry™ Lasting: Features plush underfoot comfort while providing excellent moisture management, high level breathability, and antimicrobial properties
  • Gender Specific Cushioning and Plus 3®: Women's models feature a lower density top layer in the midsole for female athletes to enjoy the benefits of midsole compression, plus an additional 3mm of additional height to relieve achilles tension

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

      Love this shoe. Plenty of cushioning but still feels stable. Only thing I hate is the hideous color of green and hot pink. I already have it in the gray/turquoise and gray/pink versions so I needed another color. Oh well. I try not to look at my feet. I wish the Gel-Nimbus 19 got better reviews. I don't know what I'll get when this model is extinct. It's a keeper.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

      this shoe is far better than the Nimbus 19 Wider toe box--just as light weight The heel may be not as snug as the 19
      and if you have a very Narrow foot the Nimbus 19 may be great

      overall I think this shoe is better and lower priced

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

      I have owned 4 pairs of these shoes and I love them. These are one of the best cushion shoes I could find and my wide feet felt comfortable in them. I bought these shoes a half size larger than my normal shoe size. I plan to stock up on these shoes since the nimbus 19 had so many reviews about being too narrow.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

      I liked the way these shoes felt right away when put them on. Usually my knees will begin to hurt pretty quickly if it's not for me but I had zero knee pain. My only complaint is that my feet fall asleep. They do run a little smaller than most of my running shoes. Maybe I should have gotten a bigger size.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

        Narrow feet runners rejoice! Finally we have a running shoe that actually fits narrow feet. Brooks Ghosts use to be my goto shoe in a narrow, then they changed the fit with the ghost 7's and every one after has gotten wider and wider. My local running store has put me in several different shoes, and I slide around in all of them. Stopping in the middle of half marathons to tighten them up is annoying and there is always a blister by mile 6-7 because of the sliding. A Brooks employee at an expo suggested these shoes when I told him my issues....love him. Finally have a running shoe that actually fits my feet, and now I can think about the run and not where I need to pull over and tighten up my shoes. If you have narrow feet, these shoes are for you.

        Gel Nimbus 18 vs. 19

        from undisclosed

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

        I love this running shoe. The new gel nimbus 19 does not fit the same so I did not buy it. It runs much narrower in the forefoot. Even in a "wide" it does not fit right. I was glad to find the 18 at road runner sports!

        Excellent price and fit! I use this shoe mostly as a cross trainer, great cushion and side to side stability with flexibility. This is last years model and it compares pretty closely to this years without the high price difference. I'm not a high mile runner so I can't speak to comfort with high miles.

        Too little cushioning!

        from undisclosed

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

        I was disappointed. I've repeatedly ordered this exact shoe for several years and always loved it for its cushioning. I had heard other runners complain that Asics have changed-for the worse,but never felt that way-until now. The insole is stiff and provides far less cushioning than it used to. I hope Asics listens to the complaints.
