Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Exclusive Running Shoe:

I do not believe that this shoe is related to the 19 rather it is most likely a "demo" for the now released 20 shoe. It way too narrow compared to the 19s I wanted to replace. Need to return them and speak to a fit expert regarding the new 20s. I may need go for a wider width.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Exclusive Running Shoe:

    Others have commented on how small cut these shoes are, both in length and width. I got around that eventually by upping one full size and going to 4E (from 2E). Now I'm finding the shoes are quite comfortable, though I worry a bit that they might end up too big ultimately. Please keep the more neutral gray and black color combos coming. Your shoes have always been either way too loud and crazy for my more advanced years, or too light (whites and light grays)--the shoes would get dirty in an instant!

    Sure hoping that the Nimbus 20 is more accurately sized!

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Exclusive Running Shoe:

    I have used the Nimbus line now for 5 different and this one is by far the worst. Too narrow and too short. I'm a 4 E and the toe box is too tight. The shoe does have great cushioning but the shoe gets soaking wet with sweat in any amount of miles put on. The shoe seems to collect moisture and get heavier. Not recommended. This is a shame as I really like the previous models of this shoe.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Exclusive Running Shoe:

    Have run in Nimbus for 20plus years, but the 19s are not good. Even after sizing up a full size, this shoe is too narrow and borderline too short. Asics, what have you done?? Why change sizing now? I will be looking for a new shoe that fits. Please return to your previous shoe sizes.

    Toe box too small on this version.

    By Dennis

    from undisclosed

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Exclusive Running Shoe:

    I've used many version of the Gel-Nimbus over the years and suddenly the toe box it too small on this version. The cushioning and overall length feel as expected, but the toe box is too low and narrow. These will be returned via the great return policy and I'll look for closeouts on the Nimbus 17 or 18.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Exclusive Running Shoe:

        I've been wearing this shoe since version 5, as it's one of the few i found that fit my wide forefoot. This model is exactly like most of the reviews I read before trying and nothing like the previous models. They shrunk my 4E forefoot to a D and it's now unwearable for me. I'm actively looking for something in the 18 model, because this one is a no go. Why did they have to mess with a great shoe?

        So small and narrow cannot wear them compared to same size Nimbus 18's . The Nimbus 18's were slightly small and narrow but these are so small and narrow that I do not think sizing up will even help.

        The newer model Nimbus 19 - 5 tend to run a little small and less wide. Take this into consideration when you buy them. Still an excellent shoe, sizing just seems off?

          Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Exclusive Running Shoe:

          After years of being a loyal Nimbus customer I thought the move up to the 19 was going to be a logical, productive step. Nope. Super tight (and I have skinny feet) and generally uncomfortable. I gave them a solid break in period but no improvement and took them back to make use of my first VIP swap out. The girl said I was not alone. Went back to the 18s (bought online) which worked great, but now that they are out of stock I made the jump to Nike. We shall see...

          Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Exclusive Running Shoe:

          Tried these as a replacement for my 18s on the recommendation of the sales person and ordered them 1 full size larger. The toe box was nice and roomy and the width overall seemed good. However the height in the 19 seems to be shorter than the 18 which causes pain on the top of my foot above the arch. On a 10 mile run I adjusted the laces, even skipping eyelets at least 3 different times trying to get the pressure off of the top of my feet without success. When I compared the 19 to the 18 measuring the height of the eyelets I found a ¼" difference which is not good for someone with high arches and that wears orthotics. After 5 different runs trying to get used to the shoes, they are going back and will try a different brand.

          Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 19 Exclusive Running Shoe:

          I've used the Asics for many many years. And now as a diabetic I use them daily as a walking shoe. However when I purchased the new 19's I found them very tight, smaller toe box and very uncomfortable. I traded in my 10 1/2 B for a wider D, as suggested by RR customer service. The shoe was still too narrow and tight to lace up. Something has definitely changed with this newest model. I decided because of my love for the shoe to go back to the 18's with hope that Asics will go back to what makes them so great. RR has excellent customer service and they did their best to accommodate me.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Excellent customer service, quick response to ill-fitted shoes. Thank you.
