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:

  • 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

short toe box, great cushion

By Jennifer

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 :)

Great shoe

By marlene

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

Great shoe. I am a fast walker and like running shoes for this activity. I average about 28-35 miles a week. I ordered the orthotics too. I wore the shoes when they arrived with the original inserts, but needed more support and inserted the orthotics. Shoe gives a lot of support or stabilizing to the foot. I have a high arch and I need the support. The shoe was on sale and I know the purchase was a good deal.

Still happy but a little tighter and a little less cushy.

By Jennifer

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

I've been wearing Asics Gel Nimbus for years now. The issues with this release were that the shoes feel a bit tighter than normal - and I ordered the same 10.5Ds that I've been wearing for years. They also aren't quite as cushy as brand new Nimbus.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

      I currently have the GEL-Nimbus 18 in the Comic design and they are by far the best shoe I have ever purchased. So I went to get another pair and they are sold out of my size which is why I purchased these in the same exact size. These are so uncomfortable. The width is so much smaller and the fit around the toes is a lot smaller. Just uncomfortable in general. So disappointed since I figured it would be the same fit. :( Back to the drawing board. Love Road Runner Sports - Disliking Asics right now.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

        I really wanted to like these shoes since this was my 2nd pair since the Saucony Kinvara's I originally ordered made my toes burn. I read good reviews for the Asics so I figured a shoe at this price had to be good. Was I wrong! From day one these shoes made my feet burn and my little toes feel like they had blisters. I tried them at the gym, at aerobics class, walking, and jogging and every time my feet burned. I rarely wear them, but every know and then I put them on thinking they will be comfortable and unfortunately they are not. Since I had already traded in a pair of shoes within my 90 day trial period I did not want to push my luck and replace these shoes so I kept them. I totally wasted my money on these Asics Nimbus shoes!

        These shoes are not near as wearable as my Nimbus 17 pair. They are tight in the heel and toe area, making me wish I had ordered a half size bigger.
