SIZED WAY TOOOO SMALL!!!!!!!!!!

By christian`f

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

I had to drive 55 miles round trip because these 11-4E ; which I have bought at least 40 prs. in this size did not fit. The store manager new exactly what to do without me even saying anything; because he is an 11 also. These shoes are sized very small and I was encouraged to go a store personally. This is a problem that should not exist; especially not from the manufacturer, but the retailers should be checking at least random sizes of new models.

Disappointed

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

Great cushioning but the structure of the shoe is disappointing. Have worn them since Nimbus 1 and by far this is the worst build shortest lasting sole of them all. It is too soft in structure and has no lasting support. Extremely disheartened with this model.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

Nice looking shoe, but the ASICS shoe size and width were way too small. Roadrunner took them back with no questions asked, paid for the shipping, and credited my account quickly. Great to do business with.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

I have been running in the Nimbus since 2009 and never disappointed. However sadly I am very dissatisfied with the 19. ASICS dropped the ball here lacking in quality and performance, if you are looking for the quality of the past go elsewhere.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

      Listen to the reviews. This shoe is not sized correct at all. I ordered a full size up from my normal shoe because of the reviews and it's still too small. Even if I'd have ordered a size and a half larger I don't think they would have fit right. You shouldn't have to play a guessing game when ordering shoes.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

      Read the reviews prior to purchase and ordered a full size larger due to most reviews complaining that the shoes ran small. I should have ordered a full size and a half and even then, I still don't think these shoes fit right. The toe box is extremely tight. Definitely will be returning for a refund. Hopefully ASICS will get it right with the 20.

      Love the shoe, fit changed. I have been wearing 9 1/2 EE for years. Had to go to 10 EEEE to get same fit. If fit changes that much ... why? At least provide guidance on website to say the 'new' model fits differently

      Sizing is way different. Purchased to replace my Gel Nimbus 18's. The 19's are a full size smaller than what i wore in the 18, as well as being narrower. Had to upsize from an 11.5d to a 12.5 2e. Once i got the right size, very comfortable with plenty of cushion at the heel.

          Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

          Welp, these are going back to Road Runner - I never even attempted to run in them. I have purchased ASICS for years, and when I slipped these on, my toe was to the edge. I almost feel like if I were to exchange for another size, that I'd go up a full size bigger. I can't be bothered with the back and forth on shipping and will just give ASICS a chance another time with the '20' when it comes out.

          I should have listened to the previous reviews when these were mentioned to be too tight-fitting.

          WARNING--Change in Sizing

          Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

          I have been wearing Asics Nimbus for years and years. I was always an 11-regular width. Asics completely changed its cut and sizing. My toes were being crushed in the toe-box.

          I had mail ordered the shoes but had to go to the store and return them. After an hour of trying different sizes, I ended up with an 11.5 4X wide shoe. I have had the new shoes for about a week and am not quite sure they feel, 'just right'.

          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.

          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.
