You're sure to be impressed by this latest version of the GEL-Cumulus® legacy, eighteen years in the making, that now features Convergence GEL® Technology, providing you with improved comfort and an unprecedented ride.

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

    I have been running regularly for almost 6 years now and found the Cumulus 15's in 2013 when I ran my first marathon (size 10). I loved them but had toe issues and was suggested to go up an additional half size in the 16's to a 10 1/2. I LOVED the 16's!!!! I hated the 17's as I had purchased in that larger size (10 1/2) but wound up being too big once I got into longer distance runs. I purchased the 18's in a size 10 and they felt snug at first but stretched nicely to fit my foot. I put 250 miles on that pair training for the marathon this year. They remind me of the 16's that I loved in fit and feel! Great cushioning and support! I highly recommend them!

    Sturdy shoe

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

    I had three pair of the nimbus but recently switched over t these shoes because they had a lower heel to toe difference. They are not as cushioned as the nimbus but still provide excellent support. My plantar fasciitis is getting better after only a week or two with these shoes.

    Rear fabric chews up skin on Achilles and ankles

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

    Too much fabric/cushioning chewed up my Achilles and ankles during run. May cut a slit and see if I can pull out some of the fabric. Love the feel of the cushion on forefront during run, but I need my skin.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

        I think this sneaker is more than just a half size smaller in comparison to the 17. It does not have the same forefoot construction, and I doubt going up a full size would make this a comfortable shoe for me. Unfortunately, I am unable to find the 17 in my size, and can only hope that the 19 will go back to that style. While I have 2 pairs of the Nimbus 18, I don't feel it has the same firm feel that I like in the Cumulus 17. The 18 in both styles seems too formless in the forefoot area.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

        I've been wearing ASICS Gel Cumulus for 10 years. I wear an 11 Narrow. I waited all spring and summer for a pair in this size to become available. The shoe fits perfectly except in the very end of the toe box. After 30 minutes of a run, my toes are numb. I finally held them up to my last pair and their is a 1/4 inch difference. Sadly they are going back after a 4 week trial.

        Thus shoe was very short. I could not wear it and had to return it. I have worn Asics for over ten tears and this is a first in not fitting.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

        Have Achilles tendinitis and this shoe was recommended due to 10" heel drop. No problems after a week of wearing for daily runs of 3-7 miles. Very comfortable and flexible shoe except the toe box is VERY tight. Had to send my usual size shoe back and get 1/2 size up and they are still a toe-squeeze. Strangely enough, once I start running in them, I don't notice the tightness. Overall, a really great shoe.

        Not nearly as cushiony as older models and a much more narrow fit in the toe box. Like the older models much better!

            Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

            I have been wearing Asics for many years. I am running less right now because of illness, but generally I run about 10 miles a week. I have learned that the only thing I need in a shoe to keep injury-free is decent cushion and the correct fit. I need a shoe with a wide toe box and over the years have relied on the Cumulus in a wide width to give me what I need. I have never had trouble with heel slippage in any of the Asics shoes I've owned until now. In addition to the heel issue, I find the toe box feels tight and overall, the shoe to feel less than comfortable . . .not the "put 'em on right out of the box and feel great" fit I have grown accustomed to. Even with all of these issues, I decided to give the shoes time to break in but during my last outdoor run, I had trouble with pain in my ankles and the next day had pain in my outer thigh. Bottom line, I am definitely sending these shoes back. My problem now is what to replace them with.

            Why must we always have a new "model" every year? Couldn't the manufacturers give their customers the option of buying more than their latest edition? I already know the answer to that. . .planned obsolescence.
