Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

I have been running in the Nimbus for 25 years, but I found I did not like the hard heel counter since version 18. I tried the Cumulus and found them to be a nice cushioned ride, and no firm heel problems.

    Width not true to other models of Asics. Too narrow!

    By Robert

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

    I used to run in the Cumulus for years, but at some point they changed the mold and made the toe box very narrow and not true to the other models of Asics I wear. I had hoped they have improved over the years, but such is not the case, so I have returned these shoes and gone back to the Nimbus which is true to size. Of course the are quite a bit more expensive.

    This my second pair of Gel Cumulus 18 and are very comfortable and last. I have been running in Asics for a long time and recently switched the the 18's with no regrets. They perform as well as all the other Asics I have worn over the years.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

      I wear a size 10.5 or 11 dress shoe. At size 12, this shoe is a close fit. While it very effectively relieved the physical misery I was experiencing, I cannot accurately advise others whether the size runs .5 or a full-size smaller, thus, my award of four-stars.
