Restores My Faith In ASICS

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

I am not a professional athlete or what one would consider an avid runner, I am just an average person who was never very athletic but exercises to maintain good health.

I work out a few days a week at a local gym which has a walking/running track above two tennis courts.

My routine consists of an approximately 30 minute upper body workout with light weights and jogging approximately one mile on the hard track.

I have what may be considered bowed legs and I have relatively poor biomechanics which makes my feet and ankles really hurt after my jog.

For me, the most important issue is how much cushioning and shock absorption an athletic shoe provides. I do not care if the shoe is light, I do not care if it is endorsed by some famous athlete, etc. I just want maximum cushioning so that the bottom of my feet and my ankles do not hurt after jogging on hard surfaces.

I bought my first pair of ASCIS gels in 1990 and I was very impressed with the shock absorption over shoes made by Nike, New Balance, etc.

Over the years, I grew to like the Gel Cumulus line. I thought they had good shock absorption for their cost.

In 2007, an RRS Associate recommended the Nimbus 9. I usually get size 8 4E, but they only had the Nimbus in 2E. I tried them and thought they were too stiff and did not provide as good of cushioning as the Cumulus.

I stayed with the Cumulus line until I tried the awful Cumulus 14 in September 2013. The Cumulus 14's were the least cushioned, least shock absorbing, and most uncomfortable ASICS shoes I had ever ever purchased even though I got them in my usual size 8 4E.

I was thinking seriously about leaving the ASICS brand when a RRS Associate recommended the Nimubus 16. I was very skeptical - especially considering my previous negative experience with the Nimbus 9's, but with the RRS 90 day return policy, I decided to this would be the last chance that I would give ASICS.

I got my Nimubs 16's in white/black size 8 4E. My opinion is that these are the most shock absorbing ASICS that I have worn in many, many, years. They could use a little more gel in the front of the shoe on the outside, but overall, these are great shoes.

There is no comparison between these Nimbus 16's that I am wearing now and the awful Nimbus 9's from 2007 and the horrendous Cumulus 14's from 2013.

If cushioning is the most important feature in an athletic shoe for you as it is for me, you should seriously consider the Nimbus 16.

I was about to leave ASICS for good, but now my faith has been restored.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

    I usually run in performance cushoning shoes but a friend comvinced me to try these. I thought the added weight would be bad, but the added comfort on long runs is amazing. They breathe well, and cushion supreme. I am going to use this for all my training except speed work, and probably will choose them to do a marathon. I really have nothing negitive to say.

                              Bought these shoes about two weeks ago as I'm training for a half-marathon. This is my first pair of Nimbus and they are great. I ran yesterday for 10 miles and, honestly, I could have easily run more. They have a great cusion without being too soft. No negative comments as of yet. Looking forward to continued training miles and the race with these shoes.

                                Extremely impressive build quality. Gorgeous shoe. Runs approximately one-fourth size small- buy one-half size up.

                                  I have been real happy with the Nimbus-16. I am on my 3rd pair and will stock up on them as it is currently at a very affordable price. I have run in the kayano's for years, but lately, as Asics continues to shave weight off the kayano, I no longer get as many miles from a pair. The nimbus-16 reminds me of the kayanos of old, which are very comfortable and very durable. For race day, I will slip on some racing flats, but for day to day training, the Nimbus 16 is my new shoe, a lot of bang for the buck!

                                                  I am a "heavy" runner - 6'5", 230 Lbs. and 62 years of age I'm still running and one of the things I look for in a shoe is comfort. Pulled these out of the box and did 7 miles with no problems - great support.

                                                  I run about 20 miles a week and these shoes hold up very well, put almost 400 miles on my last pair before replacing.

                                                  Note: I always by an insert and size up 1 full shoe size.

                                                    Used to wear Kayanos but found that my knees got hurt while doing track; used Nimbus 12 and surprisingly the hurt went away; now on Nimbus 16 the improvement continues and I can pound the ground either doing road or track...

                                                        These are without a doubt the most comfortable shoes I have owned in their price range, period! I have two pairs, no regrets.

                                                            This is my Eighth (8th) Pair within the NIMBUS series! I Purchased them on June 17th, 2015. Currently, I RUN/WALK/HIKE over Twenty-Eight (28) Miles per Week- every Week- throughout the Year. Realizing that up-to TWO-THIRDS (67%) of Active RUNNERS suffer an INJURY yearly- the APPROVAL by the AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION was pivotal in my Purchase Decision! The NIMBUS 16s have the Largest ForeFoot SILICONE GEL-CELL units every placed in a GEL-NIMBUS series! At a Weight per Running Shoe of 11.4 ounces, the NIMBUS 16s are comparable to my NIMBUS 15s at 11.5 ounces, but Less than my ASICS KINSEI 4s at 11.9 ounces per Running Shoe. My NI,BUS 15s (LITE-SHOW) were Manufactured in CHINA; whereas, my NIMBUS 16s were Manufactured in VIETNAM. As expected, the Design is First-Class, the Construction is Excellent. the Material & Fabrics are Top-Flight and the Colors are (i) Deep, (ii) Rich, and (iii) Vibrant! As Always, with the (JAPANESE) ASICS Brand: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR & MORE!!!
