Product Description:

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.

Features & Benefits:

  • FluidFit®: Combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapts to the athlete's foot, creating a truly customized glove-like fit
  • FluidRide®: Provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability
  • Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning Systems: Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement on multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle

  • 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

Comfortable but my feet fall asleep.

By Sheila

Verified Buyer

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

    By Julie

    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!

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    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.

    These shoes are so cushy. They are my go to shoes for long runs, training , and marathons . I broke my tibia a long time ago and still have a steel rod in my leg . These shoes really make it so my legs can take the pounding pavement can dish out. Love it .

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

    Too little cushioning!

    By kitty

    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.

    Been running in this style shoe for 4 years. Perfect fit for me. I like the extra cushion and good support. Sometimes the tread wears out a little sooner than expected, but I still pick this shoe every time.

    short toe box, great cushion

    By Jennifer

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    Asics is my go to shoe. Should have listened to other reviews and bought 1/2 size up. I've been jogging for ~30 yrs and wear a size 9 wide. This model is short in the toe box for sure. A little heavy, but quite cushioned. I'll buy another pair just in a 9 1/2 wide. Asics please make more color choices for those of us with wide feet :)
