Asics out does themselves again

By Edward

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.

        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.

        I returned the 1st pair of 19's because the were too small and too wide.
        This pair wasn't wide enough either. The return process wasn't disappointed either. This was definitely a bad experience.

              I have been a die hard fan of the Nimbus since the #7 model. This is the biggest disappointment of all. Definitely too narrow and too small, and I've ordered the 2E for years because of a bunion issue. I've also noticed that the sock liners wear out way too soon and result in blisters - this has been a consistent problem in the last few models. The soles and uppers are still in good shape, but the blister problem makes me discard the shoe.

              Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

              Listen to the reviews. The 19's don't fit like their predecessors. This was my 4th or 5th pair of the Nimbus family. I've liked all of them until now. I always order 10 EE. I'm a 9 to 9.5 normally. My foot is borderline with regard to needing the wide fit. The 19's were too tight to even consider giving a longer look. Toe box seemed narrow and low and my toe was right up against the front of the shoe. Keep looking.

              I've been wearing Asics for over 20 years and this shoe may break me from that. The toe box is too tight and I now am the dissatisfied owner of 4 blackened toenails, I'm a true size 12 and this shoe size 13 is too short. The motion control is poor and tries to roll to the outside. My Nimbus 15s - 18s never did that. I was not happy with the heel cup wearing out the inside foam on the 18s and this model is starting to do the same.

              Too narrow and too small. Not sure what Asics is thinking here with the sizing. Seems to be more padding in heel area also which makes shoe fit even more snug. I've had 15 pairs of the Nimbus. Very disappointed with the Nimbus 19.

              If I could do no star I would. So disappointed with Asics. We have been buying Asics since the Gel Nimbus 12 and 13. They changed the toe box. The toe box is now narrow. My husband has been a size 10 in these forever. He got them in a 10 and they are tight on his feet. He compared them with the Gel Nimbus 18 and they are definitely narrow. Buyer beware. You need to size up a half a size to feel comfortable in them. Then they might be too small. Get back on track Asics.

              Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

              This Nimbus feels lighter and more cushioned both in the heal, sole and upper than previous years. The biggest difference from recent previous years is that the shoebox is a little narrower and a little more snug fitting. With the narrower shoebox and the lighter weight, it feels like a faster shoe for me. Let's see how it does in my upcoming Marathon next month! For those who like the extra room in the front, you may want to go up half a size from previous your previous Nimbus shoe size or choose a wider shoe.

              I wanted to love this shoe... I have been running in Asics for the majority of my running life, however, I had to vacate my position as a solely exclusive Asics runner. The toe box in the Nimbus was too narrow, to the point where I was developing severe blisters on the outside of both of my big toes. The ride was smooth throughout my foot, but I just couldn't get over the pain caused by the rubbing with my toes. The upper meshing doesn't do much expanding or breathing, which I believe lead to my issues.

                    Very comfortable and very nice shoes. I have the black/yellow ones and are awesome. I just don´t get why the nimbus left the forefoot reflective pads. I run at dawn and in the afternoon in the street. It´s very helpful to have shoes that offer some signs to car drivers when the visibility is low. And I suppose it´s not expensive to stick two reflective pads. It´s my only complain with this shoes.
