    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

    For the Nimbus 13-18, I've worn size 9.5, 4e. For these Nimbus 19s I had to buy size 10 4e to get these feeling in the width. As a result, there is slightly a longer length in the toes, which is manageable for my short 2 mile runs. I don't run longer than this so I cannot comment on the impact.

    I took the inserts out of these Nimbus 19 and compared them to the previous Nimbus 18. The inserts are the exact same size despite being a half size larger.

    I still recommend the shoes, they are light,cushion well etc.

    After having my knee scoped two years ago my gait changed, and at age 70 I was having heel pain because I now supinate. This show has helped quite a bit when running and especially walking--I do both @ 5 times a week.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

    I have bought Asics GEL-Nimbus shoes (14-18) for years and they have been an excellent shoe. They are cushioned well and have a wide toe box which I require. For whatever reason the 19 has a much narrower toe box and the heel is narrower as well. I cannot run in these shoes. My Nimbus 18s are nearing the end of their life, I am running a marathon in less than a month, and now I have to search for a replacement shoe. Thanks Asics!

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

    Most of the negative reviews about the Nimbus 19 have centered around small sizing. Road Runners recommends that you order ONE FULL SIZE up. In the past, I have worn a size 10.5 in the Nimbus 15, 16, and 17. I went to an 11 in the 18's, and then to an 11.5 in the 19's. They fit great and have the plush ride, cushioning, and support as expected from the Nimbus nameplate.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

    Unlike the 18 model, toe box is very narrow.. actually the 19 - 2E wide model compared to the 18 -2E is like comparing 2E to D wide.
    Practically i had 2 runs with the new shoes ( 8 miles and 12 miles) , resulting in blisters on fingers . although i run with same shoe model (Nimbus) for years , i had to throw them to the garbage. what a waste :-(

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

        Been running in Gel-Nimbus and competing is Asics for over a decade. These are horrible. Reading the reviews, I ordered 1/2 size up and 2E width. My normal is 10D. While the shoe "fits", it doesn't fit right. My normal size would have been too small, and even with the up-sized show, the toe box is still narrow. Going up-szied also made the shoe bigger than what it needs to be, I've had to cinch down the laces so the upper is crunched. Running in them is akin to wearing clown shoes.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

        I have been buying GEL Nimbus shoes for years and love them but the latest pair are not a good fit. I am always a solid size 10, width 2E but these shoes are smaller in both length and width. I thought that they would loosen after I wore them a few times but am finding that is not the case.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

        This shoe is incredibly narrow feeling. I can wear a 10.5 D in many shoes, but needed an 11 2E in the Nimbus 19 to get a reasonable fit. Still wasn't crazy about the fit and the heel collar dug into my achilles a little bit. Not a fan of this shoe at all. Hopefully they remedy the sizing issue with the Nimbus 20, but so far from what I hear, it's only slightly corrected, and sizing may still be a bit off.

        I've owned about 10 pairs of the Nimbus and most versions ran pretty similar to the previous version. The Nimbus 19 is definitely about 1/2 size smaller and much narrower in the toe box. Surprising that after all these years that the Nimbus 19 is off compared to previous models.

        Toe box way to small. Totally different cut than the last six models. 10 4E should be very wide but this shoe is not. Disappointed!
        Need to find a different wide comfortable shoe to stand in for 14 hours straight.

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

        These Nimbus 19s run pretty small. I think it is because of the knit top. Too snug. I bought a pair of men's for myself (usually wear W 9.5) but because of a bunion, I often try mens Nimbus. These 8s just barely fit-since my woman's foot is smaller than a mans, I hope to be able to run in them.
        Bought a pair for my son who always wears mens 9.5D and he had to send them back! He wasn't sure what would have made them fit-so I recommend trying this model on before purchasing. Not sure how Nimbus can rectify this issue and stay with the knit design.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

        This shoe just arrived the other day, and was to replace my previous GEL-Nimbus 18 shoes. Sadly the shoe has changed a bit and shrunk. I measured to be sure, and it is truly a bit smaller. Unfortunately, my foot couldn't afford the loss of toe room, and this shoe has to go back. However, the change may work out well for some of you, so I can't downrate the shoe over it. My 3 star rating only means that I can't really recommend a shoe that I didn't run in.
