    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

    Have always loved the Nimbus and thought I would try the 18s. I found them to have a short and narrow toe box. I usually wear a 10 and have plenty of room but found these to squish my toes after running some distance. Order a size up. Cushioning was fine, nothing extraordinary.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

        I"m not sure who is able to wear this shoe because it is so tight. I didn't think the width of my feet were that much out of the norm. I bought an 8 regular which was way too narrow and short, then I tried a 8 wide. It was honestly was not any wider, so now there are no options for me on this shoe. This is such a disappointment.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

        Why do shoe companies always feel the need to screw up their shoes. Ordered new Nimbus and the shoe is now considerably narrower then the previous model. So now I have to return them and it cost me around $10 to ship them back. What a waste of time and money.

          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

          What happened to this version of Nimbus?! I've been wearing Asics Nimbus for years and this is the first time a version of their shoe has caused me real issues. One heel keeps slipping, which has never happened in their shoes before. I had to tie the shoe incredibly tight for it to stay put. The shoes feel short, though I ordered the same size I always do (have custom orthodics). I developed an ache in my left top foot (basically big toe joint), which is tendon related, I think caused by the shoe feeling too short. Just an all around bad experience with this version. Hopefully the next version will be much better! Keep in mind that I trained for an Ironman in 2016 rotating a couple pair of Asics Nimbus 17s.

          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 Running Shoe:

          I loved the Aspics-Gel Nimbus 17 -- it was one of the best running shoes I've had in my 43 years running. I should have listened to others' reviews before I bought the Gl Nimbus 18. The toe box is narrower and shallower, and the shoe doesn't feel as cushioned. Why change the sizing and fit on a shoe that was so successful I couldn't get it anywhere -- and I tried! Totally sold out! What a disappointment.

            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.
