    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 14 Running Shoe:

    For everyone completely bummed out by the redesign on the 13s (like me) fear not!! The 14 is back to the comfort I originally fell for in the 12. I hated the 13 so much that I've been hording 12s to stock up in case I never found another shoes that made me happy. I have duck feet, narrowish heels with a wider toe and the 12s provided perfect balance for their shape. But the 13s came along with a much narrower toe box...not even accommodated in the wide widths. I was so disappointed!! But after trying the 14s ans feeling that immediate comfort I'd been used to in the 12s I knew the pain of the era of the 13s was no longer an issue. I bought my shoes at a marathon expo and the Asics rep said he had heard nothing but complaints about the 13s so I know I'm not the only one with the problem.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 14 Running Shoe:

      I bought these at the last minute before the Eugene Marathon because my Nimbus 13's were a little old and my Brooks Glycerins just didn't feel 'great'. I ran 2 miles on the treadmill a day before the marathon then wore these to run on the big day. They were fantastic! No blisters, no leg or foot pains beyond the normal tiredness - not bad for 48 yo legs that don't train enough! I have a wide foot with a high instep and bought the D width and also bought a half-size larger than normal (which is a full size larger than my street shoes). Now three weeks later they still just feel so balanced and cushy compared to any of my other shoes.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 14 Running Shoe:

      I got the Nimbus 14 after running in the Cumulus 12 for over a year and loving them. When shopping for replacement shoes, I tried several different neutral shoes from different companies, and came back to Asics because the roomy forefoot works well for me, the upper doesn't typically cause me any bad blisters, and they just seem to feel better on my foot than other brands. I have a very narrow heel, and both the Cumulus 14 and the Nimbus 14 have a much better (snugger) fitting heel than my old Cumulus 12s, and the forefoot feels just as good.

      I ultimately chose the Nimbus 14 over the Cumulus 14 because after trying them both on, the Cumulus seemed so much less cushioned. I think it seems less cushioned than the old Cumulus 12, honestly--especially in the forefoot. I've done several runs in the Nimbus, from 3 to 6 miles so far, and have loved them. As another reviewer said, it's like running on pillows. One thing I will say is that once I get over 4 miles, I do start to notice that I have the shoes on. I guess I'm saying they feel a little heavy. For that reason, I might get a pair of Cumulus and wear them for my long runs. Overall, I really like the Nimbus, and the gray upper with blue sole and purple liner is really nice looking. For what it's worth, I wear a 7.5-8 regular width in street shoes, and wore an 8 in my old Cumulus 12s, but was getting some blisters on the ends of my toes once the weather warmed up and my mileage increased. I got an 8.5 in these to prevent blisters, and it works well. I have a neutral foot and am a light but injury-prone person, and I run mainly on streets.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 14 Running Shoe:

        I have been wearing the nimbus for several years. I was excited to try the nimbus 14 since it was lighter and supposed to be improved. Unfortunately, I knew as soon as I put it on that it was very different. The toe box felt much tighter than the 13. The 13 gives my toes plenty of wiggle room, but the 14 totally squished them! The tongue seemed stubby and rubbed the top of my foot. And the heel cup felt stiffer. I ran in it anyway thinking it just needed to be broken in and after 2 short runs (4-6 miles each) I gave up on the shoe. The 14 does feel lighter than the 13 and despite the rubbing, it provided good cushion. The only other complaint was that the shoe laces are short. Not much chance for a runners loop or even double knotting. So I'll stock up on the 13 and wait (impatiently for the 15!). May even try some other brands.

              I use these for gym running, road running (15-20 miles/week)and gym classes. I did not like the roomy toe box in the 12's, loved the narrowness and arch support in the 13's and the 14's have some great updates. They run a 1/2 size large for me - I had to return the 9 for an 81/2 and I wore a 9 in previous models. I love the lower heel elevation, heel cup revision and the sole of the heel protrudes less, making my heel/toe stride feel more natural. I can also tell they are a bit lighter. I wish they had the offset lacing like the 13's, which is worth a star for me, but they are just as cushy and comfortable. I love them.

              I have worn the Nimbus series for the past 8 years. I have never had any problems with the new models until the 14. The toe box is too narrow and the forefoot cushion seems to be less than in prior models. I have been running in the 14 for two weeks and every joint from my waist down hurts. Nothing else has changed so can only attribute it to the shoe. It saddens me as I have such great success in the prior models.

                  I run about 50 miles/week in these shoes and I am injury prone in my lower back so I need the cushioning. I also wear these shoes to race mostly half marathons and I've done one marathon in them. I have worn these shoes since 2009 and this model has been true to what I personally need. I have very narrow feet so that fit has not been an issue for me. Mainly I love these shoes because they hug my feet and cushion my joints without being too heavy. I am 5'3' 120 lbs so I am not sure if being on the lighter side could also have to do with how well they cushion.

                  Only issue I've had throughout the years has been the sizing (-star), asics keeps going back and forth. There was also one year I felt the drop was just insane so I just bought the older model.

                  I like these shoes so much I am stocking up and will be ordering my 5th and 6th pair with such a great price!

                    I was looking for a 2nd pair of neutral plus shoes to switch out from my Brooks Glycerin. I had used the Nimbus quite a bit from a few years ago. BAD mistake to go back--I wound up with knee and back pain--my forefoot felt squished width-wise, and the shoes never felt comfortable. Don't know what they did, but I should never have left Brooks. Sorry, Asics, this just won't do!

                      I am a distance runner in college. Currently my longest run is 2 hours, but when I finish that long run, my feet do not feel like they have been pounding the ground for the whole 120 minutes. They are very comfortable.

                          These shoes are really great for people who constantly get shins splints or other similar leg injuries.(But do aorder a half size bigger than your normal shoe size). I did not have an injury for 7 years after switching to the Gel Nimbus series. They are a bit heavy but that it the trade off for amazing cushoning. I have worn each pair for well over 500 miles each and I run all of my road races in them (although most people would probably prefer a lighter shoe for 5k and 10k). Only negetive I've notices with the last two models is that they are very stiff and need to be broken into for about 2 - 3 weeks. I will rotate between my new pair (for shorter runs) and my old pair for about a month.

                                  I am a long time fan of Asics and have jumped around from model to model. I have been using the Nimbus for the last 4 years and it is a great shoe. At any time I have 3 pair that I rotate. I really wish they would bring back the black versions (from last season) they don't show dirt.

                                    I have worn Asics Gel Nimbus for years and this was a very disappointing model. The forefoot was incredibly narrow. I finally had to use a shoe stretcher! But the heel cushion was also wierd - almost too high? and it rubbed on my Achilles to the point of persistant pain even after I took the shoe off. I finally had to stop wearing them. I have jumped ahead to the Gel Nimbus 15 and they are the usual great fit I have come to expect from Asics Gel Nimbus.

                                      Try others, but alwasy come back to Nimbus because of the cushoning. I have 2 pairs, one for daily wear and one for walking. Order 8 1/2 in all my sports shoes so they are true to that size.

                                            I love this shoe- I switched from the Brooks Glycerin to this. I can't believe how much longer it takes the Gel-Nimbus shoes to wear than the Brooks Glycerins, I feel like I was throwing money away! The only aspect of this shoe that I do not like is the weight, they are on the heavier side. Otherwise, great shoe. Best for training on roads and/or pavement. I haven't run trails in them yet. I also over-supinate; these shoes had enough cushion on the outer edge.

                                                I ran two half marathons and all the training for both plus got halfway through full marathon training before I felt like these shoes were finally wearing out. That was a lot more miles than I normally get. My feet didn't seem to hurt as bad in these with double-digit runs.

                                                    I run 20-30 miles a week and weigh 185 lbs. These shoes have a much tighter toe box than the 12 or 13 models. They took a long time for my feet to adjust and not get blisters on the outside toe area. They were not as durable as prior models and were done in 300 miles with not much warning signs. I would not recommend these shoes. I got a pair of 15's and hope they are an improvement. The 12 and 13's were great shoes so I'm hoping asics goes back to their original formula.

                                                    Like Asics. Worn them for years. If they fit you, you will not wear anything else. Road Runners website taught me that I was wearing the wrong shoe. This is my Third time ordering Nimbus-14. Will order the 15 when the price lowers.
                                                    However, much to my surprise and dismay, this delievery I received a pair of shoes from Road Runners that had been tried on!!! The insert was missing from the shoes, the tag was in the box not on the shoe, one shoe was strung differently than the other (laced to make it fit tighter on the ankle), the other shoe laces tied together. I would have returned them if I could have waited for another pair. (My area the warp speed still takes 3-5 days...rural.)

                                                      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 14 Running Shoe:

                                                      I wore 2 pairs of the Nimbus 12s and loved them, then on to the 13 and they were great. Now the 14. It took 75 miles for them to FEEL good. On my half-marathon, they felt like there was a marshmallow under the ball of my foot which was irritating. Then on a 15 mile run, I had the same problem on both feet and worse. Painful!
                                                      These shoes are nice for a 10 miler or less. I think they have TOO MUCH gel under the forefront of the shoes. It is really irritating. I tried on the Nimbus 15 and will NOT buy them. I could feel the marshmallows just standing in the store. I bought the Asics Cumulus 15 and the Asics Kinsei 4 in hopes that one of those shoes will be wearable for a marathon in 10 weeks.
                                                      I'm also disappointed that Asics did away with the asymetrical lacing system. And the laces on the Nimbus 14s are TOO SHORT, and I don't have a wide foot at all...if anything, it is on the narrower side. I hope the cumulus or kinsei will work for longer runs otherwise I will be done buying Asics. Too much cushioning is not always the best. There needs to be middle ground. I would not buy the 14s again unless I was only going to be running 3-6 milers. I am a neutral runner 130 pounds.
