      I have bought the Gel NImbus forever. I have always bought 6.5D, 1 full size larger than my normal shoes. I walk at least 3 miles everyday.This latest addition is so small my toes hurt every day. I hadnt read the reviews because I always buy the same thing, I wish I had I would have sent these back and now it is too late. total waste of money.

      Shoes way too narrow for this long-time Nimbus wearer!

      By Karin

      from undisclosed

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

      I have been running in Asics Nimbus for 10 years, 25-50 miles a week and 13 marathons. I have wide feet and an extremely high instep and these and the Asics Cumulus are the only shoes that have worked for me. Until the Nimbus 19 (the Cumulus 19 is great!). Even with ordering wide width, going up a whole size, stretching the shoes out, and lacing them differently they hurt my feet because they are way too narrow in the toebox. I saw other reviewers state that they have the same issue with this new model and have switched to Brooks Glycerin. I will give the Brooks a try and hope they fit better. I hope Asics stops messing with something that was perfect until now, and goes back to how they used to make their shoes.

      Toes fall asleep on long runs

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

      Really hate this shoe. I've been running in Asics Gel Nimbus since the 14s and this is the worst. Toe box is way too small. I even sized up half size after reading reviews. I've gone from size 7.5 in Nimbus 14s, 15s, 16s to size 8 in 17s and 18s and now I'm buying 8.5 and is still too small. Something is wrong here. I've been running in these since April and my toes still fall asleep on longer runs. Anything more than 4 miles and my toes are tingling. Just awful ASIC. Please get your act together and bring back the old Nimbus. I guess I need to find a new shoe.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

      I have chronic issues with plantar fasciitis and extensor tendonitis, so my podiatrist recommended a running shoe with good arch support and a wide toe box. The ASICS Gel Nimbus 18 was the perfect shoe for me! Unfortunately, I can no longer find the18 in my size 8.5 medium anywhere, so I was forced to order the new 19, but I had to order one whole shoe size larger than my normal size just to compensate for the narrower toe box, and now I am having foot issues again. I only wore them running twice before my extensor tendonitis pain flared up and a corn formed on the inside of my toe. Why did ASICS have to make the toe box so narrow in this new design!?

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

      I wasn't thrilled with the changes that Asics made to this shoe model, which I've been wearing for years. The ride doesn't seem as 'cush,' the shoe overall doesn't feel as forgiving. The fit is consistent with previous years, but it just doesn't meld to my foot like previous models. I hope they reverse course when they release the Fall '17 incarnation.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

      I usually find the advice to buy 1/2 size up to be wrong for me ( clown shoes!) , so when I saw these were recommended 1 FULL size up, I compromised. I bought a 9 B instead of my usual 8.5 B. I went out for a 6-mile run and had to stop at mile 5 bc my toes in both feet were burning, some were numb by mile 4. I tried a D, but that fit exactly like the B.. I ended up with a 9.5 and they fit beautifully. Have gone on 8- and 9- mile runs in total comfort, no breaking in. I love them, but why size them this way? The older version fit normally. I recommend, if purchased a full size up.1 recommended if you really need a D width.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

      I have been wearing gel nimbus for years, this new design is not good. The toe box is shorter, and flatter, making it quite uncomfortable. Now I'm wondering where do I go from here? How do I find a shoe that fits like the prior model?

      I purchased the Gel-Nimbus 19 after research on which shoes were recommended for runner with Heel Spurs and Plantar Fasciitis. The heel grip is great and the cushioning is good but the shoe run very small in in addition the toe box is very narrow. My big toe protrudes at the top and on my runs my toes go numb. As a result I've decided not to continue running the shoes.

        These are the most comfortable shoes I've ever had. I call them my black clouds. If you are use to the Asics gel nimbus 18 or older, order a full size up in the Gel Nimbus 19. They do run on the narrow side compared to the prior models. My feet are on the narrow side so this works for me. I normally wear a 9. Bought a 9.5 in these...they fit like a glove and are my go to shoe for running. I've ran 1 half marathon and several shorter races in them and they were great! I do think that I will go up to a size 10 on the next pair I buy though for a little more room in the length.

        Don't fix it, if it's not broken. For now I will have to
        find another shoe that works. I loved my previous
        Nimbus and cumulus but the new ones don't feel the
        Same.

            I have been wearing the Nimbus for years, the 19s are totally different then past years. They run about a half a size too small and even with going up a half size, its still not a comfortable run. I run about 35-40 miles a week and I never had any joint pain until now. Going up a half a size, makes the arch support in the incorrect spot. Give blisters on heels as there is too much movement of the shoe. Sad, because I LOVED these shoes. Time to try something new.

            I am a habitual wearer of Gel-Nimbus shoes. I always buy half size up and have a great fit. The GEL-Nimbus 19 was completely sized wrong. I bought my usual 8.5 and let a friend try them on and they fit her perfectly. Her size is 7 - 7.5! A great disappointment.

            The new colors are great! I was just as surprised as everyone else at how different the fit is for this model. But ... I have really narrow feet and was absolutely tickled that these fit so nice and snugly in the width. The shorter length and toe box were a bit of a challenge though, and I would have loved to have been able to order a larger size (no 11.5 in my color). But since the cushioning and width were SO amazing I decided to buy some thinner socks, and I am perfectly comfortable with these now for an every day shoe.

            Nimbus 19 is a great shoe! Order a half size up for the perfect fit if you are an avid Nimbus line user. I have this purchase a one star demotion because of the color "blue/purple" description. I ordered early before release so when I opened the box at home I was disappointed to see the shoes were blue. Definitely overall blue with an outline hint of violet in logo or at random seams. I returned based on color alone. I will be keeping an eye out for the next release of colors that (hopefully) match more of my workout clothes.

            My normal width is B. However, the shoes were too tight.
            Combination made shoes too uncomfortable to wear.

            Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Running Shoe:

            I have been wearing Nimbus since 2008. I can't even guess how many miles that includes. Averaging from 25 - 40 miles per week topping out at 50 + during training for 14 marathons. I've been in these shoes A LOT.
            Probably close to 50 pairs of various versions. Most I liked, some were Meh and a few I hated (Version 13). I haven't tried the 19 before this because I really, really liked the 18 and stocked up when they were available. I'm a tough grader, this version I would have given 4 stars except these shoes are noticeably narrower and smaller overall than other versions. So much so that when I took them for the first spin this AM I had to stop and retie my shoes because my toes were going numb. To put it in perspective I've taken other new versions directly out of the box and done 20 mile training runs without issue. Unless I go another 1/2 size up (or to the wide width) I don't think this shoe is going to work for running a marathon (my feet swell a lot).
            Not a big deal to order bigger, but I won't be wearing this particular pair for longer runs. The cushioning is substantial and typical but fairly firm, which I like. I like the crazy colors and patterns, so I am looking forward to seeing the NY Marathon version. The dark blue/violet are really gorgeous.

            Very comfortable shoe to walk in especially as It minimizes the impact on the heel area when walking. The cushioning is the best I have had in any of my sneakers. I also have a high arch and they accommodate that

            The AA width runs very narrow, so if you wear an A - order the B. I had to send mine back. I also had to reorder a 1/2 size larger as my usual size was just a bit short on one foot and my toe was uncomfortable. Once I had the right width and length they were perfect. Road runner was great about exchanging them and getting them right back to me within a couple days each time I reordered.

            The colors are nice also!

            I've been wearing Asics Nimbus for 2 years now and this one is terrible! I ordered my usual size and it was too small. After ordering a half size up, it wasn't much better. Very narrow and my heel kept slipping out. I even ordered a wide. Very disappointed.

                I am a loyal Nimbus wearer. I have completely worn through at least 5 or 6 pairs (the heel lining just wears away) and was really wanting to find a different brand since I'm tired of having to replace the Nimbus every 3-4 months. I tried a few other brands and nothing felt as good as the Nimbus. So, despite all the bad reviews, I ordered the 19's.
                I couldn't believe how small they were. Definitely a 1/2 size, maybe even a full size smaller than my normal Nimbus size. So disappointing. Will probably never wear Asics again as I'm just so tired of having problems with them.

                • Sizing:
                • Feels half size too small
                • Width:
                • Feels too narrow

                This nimbus show feels narrow compared to the nimbus I have run in for years and years.
