    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    Received these yesterday and ran 3.5 miles this morning first time putting them on and they are so comfortable. I have the previous model of this shoe but found these to be even more comfortable than those when I first received them. These fit like a glove. I have an arch between average and high and these have great support. I used to suffer from plantar fascitis and can tell immediately when a shoe does not have the needed arch support but these were perfect from the get go. Highly recommend this shoe.

    Love the silver/gray color with the yellow laces.

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    These shoes are so comfortable, I like the extra cushion and that they feel nice and snug, I get my running shoes a size larger than my regular shoes and some brands have too much room and my feet slide around too much, but with this pair they don't.

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    Triathlete training for Ironman. This is a great shoe that offers excellent structure even for a neutral sneaker. Absorbs impact from tremendous pounding from speed workouts. Be sure to order one full size up if you wear orthotics. Also, the toe box is much narrower than the Nimbus 16 and 17. For the first time in my life, I had to purchase a wide shoe. Road Runner Sports provided excellent customer service and feedback about this shoe, which helped me find the perfect fit for me. I did notice the outersole wears a bit quicker than in the past, especially under the ball of my feet, but I still love this sneaker and already bought my next pair.

    Too narrow and too short. Go back to older versions please!

    By Michelle

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    Way too narrow and too short. Went up 1/2 size and still too narrow in the toe box. Very disappointed as they are the only shoe I've run in since the 17s. The 20 was the last comfortable pair I have. Asics needs to go back to the fit of the older models. These last three have been terribly uncomfortable. I'm in a nimbus now which is ok but not great. I want the 20s style back!

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    Love the shoe but the toe area was too small so I had to send back and get a wide. Hopefully that will work because I have never worn a wide shoe before but this would make my toes go numb.

    Not satisfied with the length

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    I had tried this exact shoe on in a local running store, so I could see how it fit. The same shoe that I purchased from you is shorter in length. Not good. This is not the first time this has happened. The sizing should be exactly the same. This is notIt the first time this has happened. If this happens again I'm done ordering from you. I also don't like when you run out of the D width so soon. I would go back to Gel Nimbus 15 if I could find it

    Had To Buy A Half Size Up to Get the Perfect Fit

    By Kathy

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    The ASICS Gel-Nimbus 18 is a mystery to me. A few months ago I bought the Gel-Nimbus 18 Wide and they were still too narrow and I ended up returning the shoe. Luckily I stocked up on several pairs of the almost obsolete Gel-Nimbus 17. However in both shoes I wear a Wide, since the shoe seems to run narrow. I wear a 7.5 normally for running shoes, but with the 18, I actually moved up to a size 8 Wide for this order and it fits perfectly with my orthotic inserts. My running pretty comfortable with these shoes, but they do not provide as much cushion as the Gel-Nimbus 17. I hope that ASICS makes some modifications on the next version that comes out since I do think these shoes run too small.
