I used Asics in the past. The GT version and some older Nimbus but I switched to Mizunos for awhile. After trying another Mizuno that was just too wide and didn't provide the cushining I was looking for I went back! At first the sales guy suggested the Nimbus (but not the snow lights). I liked them but he specifically suggested them because others said the fit was different - and it was. It has a nice slim fit (not saying narrow) but didn't feel like my foot would float around in it. I needed a whole size up from a 10 - so got 11. I knew in the first 4 miles run that these were the right ones. I've since run 6 times and they haven't failed. I've used the tredmil for most of these runs due to weather but have also used on the pavement - no issues. The only thing I would change would be this exact fit but in a different color then black and pink. Bottom line...I brought for comfort and not the color. If that's what your looking for - don't let the bright pink turn you off.
AWESOME RUNNING SNEAKER
I run an average between 50-60 miles a wk, and this shoe is awesome. I have a high arch, and am an underpronator. I was using the GT 2170 for yrs, and my foot was rolling outward really bad, underpronating. The minute I put these on and ran I was amazed. Light, Cushioned, especially heel and arch, and my rolling outwards has stopped. I can't believe it, I love Asics, been using Asics for 10 yrs now & I do alot of half marathons. I purchased 2 more pairs of these shoes after just 3 days of owning them. I ran a 7 miler and they are not heavy at all they are a light shoe but yet so cushioned. The GT 2170's were a heavy shoe, and my legs and calves would get tired fast. NOT THESE!
Nimbus is back! Well, almost...
Have worn the Nimbus for years, but hated the 13's so much. The toe box was so narrow and the shoe was very heavy.I skipped even buying the 14's. Read such great reviews on the 15's I decided to give them a try. They are very comforatable and cushiony. The laces are back to a resonable length too! Much more room in the toe box but these shoes run SO SMALL! I returned the size 7's I notmally wear and had to order the 7.5's, which are still on the cusp on being too small. But I'm just wearing thinner socks to accommodate the size. The shoes are very chunky it's A LOT of shoe and they could stand to be a bit lighter. Also, be prepared for the tongue to snake up your shin (Asics, seriously, make them shorter!). BUT all these aside, they are still tremendiously comfortable and need no breaking in. Just put them on and go.
These shoes are awesome, however I would buy 1/2 size bigger than you would normally wear a pair of Asics in. I have run in the Nimbus 14 and 2 previous pair on Asics all an 8.5 and when I got these in 8.5 and ran in them it was excruciating on my toes, but the 9s were perfect! The glow in the dark feature isn't much to brag about... It's the tiny pieces of gel on the shoes and they have to be exposed to the light before they are able to glow.... I guess.... So its not helpful for me when i roll out of bed at 4am , But they are super reflective. They are very lightweight and cushiony and I am very happy with them!
OMG! I bought this shoes about 5 months ago.. This shoes saved me. I was training for a 3K and with the shoes I was wearing I started having problens my ankles and chins.. It got to the pint when it hut so much I couldn't run anymore. Someone told me it was probably my shoes so decided to give this ones a try.. Best choice ever!! Never again have I had any problems or pain while running;) I would buy then again and again:) I'm not a fan of Pibk but this ones are hot!
Cute shoe but wrong fit!
I always buy the asics gel nimbus. I loved the color and cuteness of this lite show special edition. BUT...they were so uncomfortable!! They are not cut the same way as my regular 15's. Way too short of toe box and narrow. I also thought the reflective material was "itchy". These shoes seem like they were made "quickly" and just not your typical perfect, wonderful asics. I had to send them back and got my regular 15's which felt like heaven..again:)
I was disapointed because I have worn Gel Nimbus for over 6 years and buy 3-4 pairs per year. I chose the Lite-Show because I run early in the morning and wanted the reflectivity. I thought the fit would be the same as the other Gel Nimbus 15. They are not the same. The material is not the same and feels cheap. The upper feels tighter than the traditional model. I am returning these to buy the original model.
Love the shoe, but it runs small.
I'm a long time fan of the Nimbus. I've been wearing it for 5+ years. I always buy 1/2 size larger than my street shoe size. It usually fits perfect.
The Nimbus 15 Lite-Show Running Shoe definitely runs small. I am returning the pair I ordered for a pair that is 1 full size larger than my street shoe size. I even compared the "Nimbus 15 Lite-Show" to a pair of "Nimbus 15". The "Lite-Show" version is smaller.
I would normally give the Nimbus 5 stars. I'm giving it 4 because of the inconsistent sizing.
I HAVE WORN NIMBUS FOR YEARS. EVEN OWN TWO PAIR OF NIMBUS 15'S NOW, AND THE LAST TWO I'VE ORDERED FROM ROADRUNNER ARE TOO SMALL. I WEAR A 10.5; THE SHOE'S SAY SIZE 10.5, BUT THEY ARE A SIZE TOO SMALL. MANUFACTURING ERROR...VERY SAD SINCE I HAVE A RACE COMING UP AND DESPARATELY NEED A NEW PAIR OF NIMBUS. HAD TO GO ELSEWHERE.
Super pink, not super reflective
I run early in the morning, usually before the sun comes up, so I try to look for more reflective gear. These aren't nearly as reflective as they are marketed. Also, I am glad I read the reviews and ordered up an additional 1/2 size, but I really could have done a full size up. Otherwise pretty much same as my other Nimbus', no complaints.
Great shoe, but sizing is off
As with the previous Nimbus models I've worn, the cushion is unmatched. This is a great shoe. However, I have never had such an issue with sizing on the Nimbus or any other Asics model I've worn. I wear a size 9 in every other Asics shoe, including previous Nimbus models, but this 9 is at LEAST a half size too small. I hope Asics gets this fixed.
I just started training for my first half and full marathon. These have a lot of cushioning and no leg pain. I feel like I'm running on clouds. They run small, I usually wear a 9.5 running shoe and got a 10, unlike the other nimbus shoes. I could run all day in these.

Asics Gel-Nimbus 15 is AWESOME!
52 yrs old. I started experiencing problems with feet a few years back. I am on my feet all day, including a 3-5 mile walk 4-5 days a week. These shoes allow me to keep going all day. Great at the gym as well. I own 2 pair and will be buying more.
I have worn the Nimbus for years and I really like the 15's. I ordered the Lite-show version in preparation for fall running but I could hardly get them on. Low stars for sizing. I have to send my usual size 9 back and order several sizes to find the correct fit. They do have great reflection and I am looking forward to my evening runs once I receive the correct size.

Super comfortable and cute
Best shoes I've ever owned. I feel like I'm walking or running on pillows. They do run small. I ordered a 1/2 size up as recommend but it was still tight so I had to return for a full size up. Other than that, I highly recommend. Very nice looking too.

Love the shoe, but definitely go up size
Love this shoe. I've been wearing the gel nimbus for a few years. Bought the 15's in the other colors and loved them so ordered these. I had to return them and get 1/2 size up for this one. Odd. But love the shoe. Great cushion!!
San Diego, CA
I bought 2 pair, one for my daughter and one for me. She called me yesterday to say they are too short, so I tried mine on today and my were also. Ordered our usual Gel Nimbus size, but these are not. Will be returning both pair
Feels like Butter!
Big fan of the Asic Nimbus 14, and 15 is even better! The extra gel cushioning is fabulous. Running feels like your not even wearing a shoe. I need to buy a second pair for when this one wears out!

I've been wearing Nimbus for over 3 years. These run a half or maybe a whole size smaller. I was very anxious to get these but they do indeed look cheap. I will try a larger size but I'm not sure the quality is the same as the regular Nimbus 15. 15's are my favorite so far.
Nimbus 15 Lite
These shoes last longer than the regular Nimbus model. I got at least 150 more miles on them than I do on the regular Nimbus models. Love them.
Saint Augustine, FL
Runs very small and narrow; size up at least 1 size; good cushioning; will be returning due to narrow toe box. Average rating due to sizing issues
Can I have Shoes Without Pink In It?
Seriously ASICS, I love your shoes but I don't understand why most women shoes has to have pink in them! Not all women like pink and it's becoming so irritating! Even if I get something of different color, it somehow has to have pink incorporated in the shoe. If I want pink, I'll get the pink version of the shoe!
I Don't Like Pink in my Shoes Runner
Cute and Comfortable!
These seem more cushiony than my Nimbus 14s. They have helped eliminate the heel pain I experienced running in other shoes.
Love these running shoes
Love these! I bought 2 pairs so I have a backup stored away since they already came out with the 16's.
