              Asics really work for me. This is my fifth pair. The Cumulus and the Nimbus are my favorites. The guys at the local RRS store have been very helpful and the people over the phone have been fantastic.

                      This is my Third (3rd) Pair of ASICS "GEL-NIMBUS 15's". Presently, I RUN/WALK Twenty-Seven (27) Miles per Week throughout the Year, Rotating daily within my ASICS Collection. In the Six (6) Months since I Purchased the First (1st) Pair, I have NOTED "NO" Wear & Tear nor Damage at all! The COLORS are still 'Bright' & 'Vibrant' and the FABRICS & MATERIALS are Pristine! With my High-Arches, the NEUTRAL Running Shoes are always Superior and the "GEL-NIMBUS 15's" are the BEST that I have ever Purchased! The COLORS, FABRICS, and SOPHISTICATION in the "GEL-NIMBUS 15's" far surpass my "GEL-NIMBUS 14's"! The Weight per Shoe at 11.5 Ounces is only 0.4 Ounces Heavier than my existing "GEL-NIMBUS 14's", but the SUPPORT & CUSHIONING is vastly Superior! The "GEL-NIMBUS 15's" contain the Largest Fore-Foot GEL-unit ever placed in the GEL-NIMBUS series and certainly Rival my existing "GEL-CIRRUS 33's" for both COMFORT & PLACEMENT! As always, with the Japanese ASICS Brand: "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR & MORE" !!!

                      I like Saucony Triumph, but love the Nimbus 15 much better. I weigh over 210 with high arch. Run 1/2 and full marathons - only negative is I wish I got more wear/mileage out of them - most like do to my size.
                      I hope the 16's are as good as the 15's.

                            I have had Petellar Femoral Pain Syndrome for about 1 1/2 years and have been looking for a shoe that feels like my old shoes did before the PFPS. After buying this shoe, the knee pain is not gone completely, but the cushioning allows me to run more comfortably than other shoes I've had. I feel like the knee is on the mend!

                              I've been using the Nimbus line since 2000 and won't use another shoe. Nothing has let me down, as long as I make sure to log total mileage and don't exceed about 500 miles a pair I don't need to worry about any shoe related injury problems.

                                I have high arches and overpronate so this shoe that was recommended by RRS staff, was a very good call. I walk/run 28 miles per week, mostly on asphalt, usually at 80 F and I seldom blister and my feet, back and legs do not hurt.

                                Use 18 to 20 miles a week on treadmill or outside jogging and walking. Like shoe very much except for the poor quality of the cloth covering the toe box. You would think that when you make that kind of money investment in these shoes, Asics would produce a better material. Has happened in other Asics products. Never in Nike, New Balance, or Mizuno.

                                  I have been running in these shoes since I think the Nimbus 3 was out and I switched from the GT series. I have a neutral gait and and 6-1 and 195 lbs. Shoes are not to be messed with and the new version is every bit as good as the last. I run everything from "fast" 22min 5k's to marathons in these shoes.

                                  I've finally found the right shoe for me. I'm female, 5'9" and have always had issues with sore feet & bruised toenails when I amp up my mileage. A sales rep at Pacers in Pentagon Row suggested this men's shoe for me. I typically wear a size 10.5 women's. I wear a 10.5 men's in this shoe to give my toes enough room in the toe box. I'd also previously been told I needed a shoe that wasn't neutral, but my feet would always ache after runs. This is a neutral shoe that works wonders for my feet. Never had a single blister or hot spot. I still wear a silicon toe cap on the one toe that still takes a beating, but they are hands down the BEST PAIR OF RUNNING SHOES I HAVE EVER OWNED. From a vanity perspective, they're not petite and they're not pretty, but they are hard core and make me feel good! Just bought my second pair and wore them in my first half - zero issues. Perfect! They wouldn't be great in the rain b/c of all the mesh, but they are suitable for fair weather and treadmill running.

                                  Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 15 Running Shoe:

                                  Always consider the source, I have been running for 38 years(79,3xx miles). Been running with the DS trainer since #1. #17 was one of my favorites. #18 didn't work for me. #19's were better but not quite enough forefoot cushioning. Tried the Nimbus 15. I am getting use to the additional 2 oz in weight. The forefoot cushioning works. Not sure all that gel in the heel is necessary. (I get 600-700 miles on a pair of shoes- no wear on the heel). Not sure why the tongue of the shoes has so much padding, especially at the top. 4.5 stars. Soon to be 71, maybe the years and miles have made my feet a little more sensitive. I still run 40 to 50 miles a week and have only logged 4 runs(33 miles). So far so good. Stealing from Nike-"There is no finish line"!

                                    I broke my Left heelbone in 2008, and have since blown through all the cartilage remaining, which means that I have bone-on-bone contact whenever I take a step. While I do both have and need orthopedic inserts, I have found that the average "life" of a shoe is about 6 months. I ordered the Nimbus 15s, and these feel great! Running hurts me too much, but I am an avid walker, and these fit the bill. I am going to order at least one more pair, I just need to get paid first!
                                    Nice job!

                                      I loved the Nimbus 14's and wasn't eager to move onto the 15's, but I love these even better. Great fit and comfortable right out of the box on both pairs I own. Just a solid shoe!

                                        I have been an Adidas fan for years. After a foot injury caused by the lack of cushioning in a pair of Adidas shoes I decided to give the Asics Gel Nimbus a try due to the overwhelming positive ratings it has received by novice and professional runners. Right out of the box the comfort was noticeable. As soon as it was on my foot it felt like my foot and ankle were surrounded by pillows and the cushioning on the bottom of the feet felt amazing. After logging about 15 miles in 2 days I have no foot pain and my legs feel refreshed. I am now an Asics fan and Adidas is in the rear view mirror.

                                          I have relied on the New Balance 763 for over a decade, but when they were discontinued I could not find a replacement (and I tried every shoe brand) neutral plus until this shoe. I had developed achilles tendonitis due to lower heel posts in the more expensive New Balance 1080v3 and aggravated a stress fracture in other brand trials (Brooks, etc). This shoe saved my running as it preforms and feels identically to my old NB 763. So if you were a fan of that shoe, this the shoe to go into. The only downsides are an arch that is a little too low and does not extend postiorly enough on the top of the mid-foot. second the new "breathable" uppers make this somewhat of 3 season shoes as cold, wet weather does not go well with shoe. I hope they keep it around for a long time.

                                            Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 15 Running Shoe:

                                            I am 5'10", 155lbs, and have had knee surgery on each leg. I run ~5 miles two-three times per week and participate in a circuit training class three times per week. This is my second pair of the Gel-Nimbus 15s.

                                            Pros: Very comfortable and the cushion is outstanding. My knees and ankles tend to ache in other shoes but much, much less in this shoe.

                                            Cons: I had a little trouble with blisters during break in on both pairs but my foot tends to recover and the issue goes away quickly. I think the reason may be due to the toe box being a bit roomy. This shoes also seems to be a little heavy so a good shoe for somebody like me but probably not for a serious racer.

                                            Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 15 Running Shoe:

                                            This is my third pair of this model. I'm a 64 year old male who has been running for 40 years. I have run six full marathons and numerous half-marathons. My mileage is down now due to a nagging injury. I like everything about this shoe except the fact that I quite quickly wear a hole in the top of the toe box. I was told by one of your assistants on the phone to simply put some duct tape on the inside of the toe box but this does not work. The tape just rolls and balls up after just a few runs. Since I really like the feel of these shoes, I just keep ordering them and replacing them fairly frequently.

                                              Daily runner, between 35 and 40 miles a week. Loved Vomero 4, 5 and 6, but the 7s and 8s never lived up. Tried a variety of shoes in between (including Nimbus 14s which gave me blisters on my little toes even with the 2E width). Finally the 15s seem to have a wider toe box and are now the perfect shoe for my foot and stride. Just bought my second pair.
