      Wish they stayed around longer because I went back to them after I couldn't stand the 19's. perfect in every way! I have a narrow long foot and ordered the 2A version and they were perfect. just wish they made the 2A version in all the colors!

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

        I used to be an avid runner years ago and stopped due to a sciatic injury. I took up cycling and recently after a 5 year hiatus I'm slowly incorporating running back into my daily regimen. I bought a new pair of running shoes and immediately without a doubt went back to my Asics Gel Nimbus. The last Nimbus I bought was a 13, now there on the 18th version...I was amazed on how well it felt and performed for my first run. I was great! The Asics Gel Nimbus never let me down even after 5+ years...I can tell the shoe is much lighter, so hopefully it will hold up as the previous versions I had. I do wear a custom orthotic in my shoes which helps with additional support. I highly recommend this version of Asics, it has been a GREAT running shoe and so far hasn't let me down!!

            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

            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.

            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.

              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

              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.

              Cushioning seems very good. It definitely is more narrow in the toe box than the 17.
