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.

            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.

                      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!!!

                                    I really liked the Nimbus 15 and the 16 feels just as good so far. I tried the Nike Vrooms and wore out the heels in a month. No such problem with the Nimbus.

                                      I really like this shoe. I am 200+ lbs with average arch and tend to underpronate and also have wide feet. I own a pair of brooks glycerin which are OK on treadmill but on pavement I needed more cushion due to PF and general bone jarring effects of running and being heavy. These did the trick with short 4 to 5 mile runs for me. Will buy again.

                                        The nimbus 15 was a great shoe,but the nimbus 16 is just the oppoisite. Found the toe box tight, the shoe heavy and stiff. Cause hip pain when ran, when switch to another shoe it went away. Hope nimbus will go back to what was tried and tested,if not I will be switching brands.

                                          I have found my Nimbus to be cushioned as advertised and testified to by other runners. My problem is that they are stiff, blocky and not comfortable. Asics makes a good product but this one isn't for me.

                                          At 300+ lbs. I need casual & comfort to go with sport slacks and polo shirts. I'm a strong supinator so this shoe seems to work the best. Used to use the Nimbus 12-14's to run in until my health issues. Back on my feet, have the 15's for walking in and now the 16's for working in. Inserts added too = Happy feet.

                                                      My GP doc (a marathon runner) recommended Road Runner Sports when I compained of foot pain and referred me to podiatrist. Foot doctor told me to get some "good shoes" vs. old worn out running shoes. The Asics are the result. My foot problem (tender spot on ball of right foot) doesn't bother me too much when I wear the shoes...vs. uncomfortable walking barefooted or with other shoes.

                                                        My wife and I run an average of 25 miles a week. I have been running in ASICS for more than 25 years! As a neutral runner, I've found the Nimbus to be the best shoe for road running. Cushion and comfort are exceptional! The only negative I can say about the Nimbus 16 is that the sizes run a full size smaller than any Numbus I've worn. I've been wearing Nimbus since the Nimbus 11 and this is the first Miis-size I've encountered.
                                                        I believe ASICS to be THE choice for running fanatics!!!

                                                          Bought the GEL-Nimbus 16s as my first proper running only shoe. I run 10-15 miles a week on pavement only and it has been a huge step up from regular athletic shoes. Of all the 2E width shoes I tried, these were head and shoulders above the rest for me. I'm about 50 miles in now and they still feel great and there is barely any wear. They feel incredibly cushon-y and like running on giant pillows. Incredibly soft and easy on your feet. Just ran the entire 5k of the Color run this past weekend and my feet felt great.

                                                          I will say as the only negative I could think of - the tongue seems thicker than any other tennis shoe I've worn. On my left foot, it caused an irritation on the top of my foot after 1-2 miles that I've never had before. Instead of returning them, I looked up some different ways to lace shoes and tried a few new lacing setups before settling on one that eased the irritation. So now I have crossed laces on one, parallel on the other, and happy feet. It's been fantastic ever since.

                                                          I said I was a "gym Rat" because nothing else applied. I walk. Hills on pavement and boardwalks. 5-7 miles 2-4x/week. The fabric inside the heel at the top (where it rolls over) wears out, bundles and causes blisters. The rest of the show looks brand new, but I have to buy a new pair every could months to avoid the ongoing blister problem. VERY frustrating considering these are NOT cheap shoes.
