Need better sole materials (worn out too fast)

By Mariano

from undisclosed

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

I've been using the GEL-Numbus for the past 6 years, roughly two pair a year. This is my first 19, and I'm disappointed on how fast the sole is wearing off. I believe I ran less than 50 miles in a month with it, and it's close to be gone already. It looks like ASICS changes the compound for a softer material, but it feels unsafe to me. I leave in the Seattle area, and unfortunately running on wet pavement is a frequent thing. Going downhill on a wet pavement on a worn off sole shoes is not fun.

I believe I'll exchange it for some other brand. Hopefully the Nimbus 20 will fix this.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

As a long time Cumulus fan, I thought I would try the Nimbus for the extra support and cushioning. However, it was just way too tight and became unwearable on my short runs.

Absolutely the worst update ever

By Richard

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

This shoe fits totally different from the previous version, especially in the toe box. I've run in gel-nimbus going through two pairs a year for a while and never had a fit problem before. It's like the shoe is a size shorter and narrower. I got blisters on my toes the first run. Unbelievable that Asics would have such inconsistent fit in such an expensive shoe. Pay attention to the negative reviews; I wish I had!

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

I have run in the Nimbus for years, and just like most reviews here I was very disappointed in the fit of the 19. I have always been a 9.5 and the first pair I received were way too small and too narrow. Initially I tried a 10 and didn't like the fit but after trying to find an alternative went back and tried again. I've gotten use to them and do like them but hope in the next model they add back a little width that they took out from the 18. The half size up is just enough that it isn't tight but could use a tad more room.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

I had to return my normal size for Asic Nimbus. I usually wear 10.5 2E. I found the correct size. Looks like Asic may have changed the sizing and last. I found my correct size with 11.0 2E. The Nimbus 19 runs small in length. You might want to size up another half-size to find your comfortable fit. Road Runner allows you to "find the perfect fit". Thank you Road Runner Sports.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

I got these because I needed cushioning, due to an injury. I usually run in Brooks pure grit line (50/50 trail road). I can get 500-600 miles out of the grits (40 miles week). I had to drop back to 5 miles a week (2 short runs) and I am still working my way back. Strava says I have a 121 miles on these shoes and the sole and midsole is worn out.

By John

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

Great fit for a narrow shoe, neutral runner. Good cushion throughout entire foot bed. I was aware from reading reviews before ordering that the new Nimbus 19 ran a bit narrower and shorter than the previous 18. I ordered a half size larger and the fit worked well for my foot.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

    I have changed my mind on the Nimbus 19. I have always been comfortable in size 10.5 2E. Unfortunately, version 19 runs small in length and narrow in width. I have run in them 5 times before I realized that they are not going to stretch or flex. I have decided to return them but I am not sure if I will order size 11.0 2E. Undecided and confused!

    Asics out does themselves again

    By Edward

    from undisclosed

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

    I purchased the gel nimbus 19 for running, I am by no means a running enthusiast in terms of racing or competing. I am a recreational runner as I enjoy many forms of physical activity. I have owned nimbus models 16-19 and have been impressed by their durability as well as consistency. Prior to my first nimbus purchase I was kayano kind of guy but the nimbus in my opinion blows the kayano away. I have never really ran in anything but Asics shoes dating back to my track days in high school and they keep upping the ante with every new model that arrives. Just a great shoe from a great manufacturer.

      Unfortunately, Asics changed up this shoe quite a bit. Fit is completely different from previous versions (not in a good way). Much more narrow and tighter than previous versions. I thought it would be a matter of breaking them in, but they have not changed since I bought them.

          Nimbus changed in a bad direction.

          Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

          Probably pair number 20 of the Nimbus that I've bought and these are the worst. Ordered my regular size like all the others and they didn't fit. I ordered a 2nd pair just to make sure it wasn't a one-off issue and those didn't fit either. I had to step up another size from where I was for the last 19 pairs and they fit horribly. I can't get them to feel good no matter how I lace them. They cause more pain than my older ones. I'm really unhappy.

          After wearing at least 4 pairs of Nimbus and/or Kayanos each year for the last 20 years, I've got to change. The last several pairs of Asics have come apart between the soles and uppers. Some kind of manufacturing defect.
