        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

        I am a daily runner --on the roads, 5-7 miles. I ran in my first pair of ASICS--the GEL NIMBUS 15 --this year and immediately became a fan of ASICS! I recently purchased the NIMBUS 16 expecting the same great fit and feel--and am very Disappointed. The shoe fits 1/2 size shorter and while the cushioning is great, it does not have the crisp, responsive feel that the NIMBUS 15 had. I have a narrow foot and heel and have run in New Balance shoes for years but have recently become very disappointed in the wearability of their shoes so decided to try ASICS based on the offering of a narrow shoe size. I hope the next version of this shoe will not disappoint!

          I ran a 5 mile race with these shoes over the weekend and was surprised to find the following day I was not feeling intense pain from my Plantar Fasciitis. I've been suffering from this for close to 2 years and with other shoes have always experenced a lot of pain following a road run, but not with the Nimbus 16. Very happy with the degree of support and comfort. If I have a complaint it's the color choices - but I can live with that if it mean no more pain

              I run everyday. I love the narrow fit ( i ordered narrow) but I do not care for the white color. They fit well but have lost some cushioning from the 15 model. I have been wearing the gel nimbus for 5 years now. Overall,I love them but they do wear out fast. My favorite are still the 13!

                These are apparently very different fitting shoes depending on what country they were made in. I normally buy a 10.5 to allow extra room, and these fit like 10s. If I bought them again, I would get an 11. I'm not sure I will though, they have caused me to lose 4 toenails. Seriously, these were ALMOST great. Just size up a half size more than you'd normally would to save your toes!

                  I have wide feet and high arches. I ordered these shoes in 8D (wide), half a size larger than my street shoes, and they are WAY too narrow. They were so narrow, in fact, that my socks showed on either side of the tongue as I laced them up. They didn't even wrap all the way around my foot. They also don't feel as if they would cushion my feet as my other shoes used to do.

                        I'm an avid Nimbus wearer since the Nimbus 12s. I loved the cushion of the 12s, but they needed to be more structured. Nimbus 13s were good, but less cushion. Nimbus 14 were totally flat and unwearable. I loved the Nimbus 15s as they had the cushion of the 12s with the structure of the 13.

                        As far as Nimbus 16s, they are slightly more structured across the top of the foot. So, someone with a low profile foot and average width forefoot, they will fit better. However, the sole/heel have changed so, it feels as though there's a heel cup. After only running in the twice, I started to have heel discomfort (which would have led to plantar fasciitis had I continued to wear them). Also, there's is less cushion than the 15s (I compared them side to side with brand new 15s that I had left). Due to both the heel discomfort and lack of cushion, I decided to return them and located some new 15s which I bought, immediately. Hopefully, Asics will bring back the 15s cushion and structure of the heel and soul in the upcoming 17s.

                              I love these shoes! They have been great for me on my runs I am barely sore at all after a long run. These are exactly what I needed they give so much support that it is like running on air.

                                Great and comfortable walking, standing, running, and working out indoors and outdoors. Love Asics in general, and just bought the new nimbus 16's recently. But, have worn Asics for the last several years. No other brand can compete/supersede, at least for me!! :-)

                                  Love everything from looks, arch support, lightweight, cushioning and comfort from this shoe!!! It is by far my go to running shoe. It really feels like my foot is being hugged by comfort when I'm running in my Gel Nimbus 16.... Makes me run longer and even a little faster, which I've been trying to improve on. I run 15-20 mi a week, and this shoe is perfect for my running needs!

                                  Let me tell you, after years of wearing multiple models of the Cumulus, I finally switched. I thought the Cumulus was nice, tried the Cumulus-16 (had issues with a bruised toe and toe cramping) hated then. Why did I never try Nimbus??! These are great. They are so comfortable, ran 7 miles out of the box on the treadmill. They are great for neutral+ runners who want extra cushioning. Wish they came in other color options, but I never judge a shoe by it's color.

                                    I run about 30 miles a week and found these shoes AMAZING being an avid heel stricker. They're light enough, but still have solid support. I've ran multiple marathons in my Nimbus 15s and they held up great! So, I decided to try out the 16s and I haven't been disapointed at all. Great shoes if you need a lot of cushion with support added in.

                                      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

                                      I used to run in the Asics Nimbus 13. I took a couple of years off running, then decided to get started again and train for a marathon. I decided to replace the 13 with the Nimbus 16 since I have used several versions of the Nimbus in the past and they have always fit well. The 16 is a totally different shoe. I ordered a half size larger than my previous Nimbus' because my upcoming race has a lot of downhill. However, when I got te shoe, it feels just as short as my old shoes and is significantly tighter in the toe box. I like a roomy toe box, so I tried to loosen it, but no hope. Took it out for a few runs to see if it would loosen but didn't. Just too short and too tight. Returned the 16 and got the Brooks Glycerin.

                                          This is the most comfortable ASICS I have owned. I do interval training and light/moderate cardio on my off days. I loved this shoe so much I ordered two more pair and one for my daughter.

                                              Been a Nimbus fan for a few years. They really upped the cushioning in the 16 and it's my new favorite. Broke them in with a few 3 mile runs, then ran in a 10k this past weekend and they did absolutely great!! I always buy 1/2 size up. LOVE these shoes and got them in the fun, bright pink. Got so many complements on them!! :) :)

                                                  I really enjoy wearing Asics and have had 3 pairs before this one. I really like that it is a bit more wider than the prior model and the cushion is much better for me. I run on roads a lot and really appreciate the cushion.

                                                    I was so excited to see the new colors, love them, so I ordered two pairs. I wore them on two runs, and both times I got blisters on my third toe. I don't have this problem with my Nimbus 15s. Finally in desperation, I put my hand in the toebox and quickly realized the source of my blisters. The plastic, reflective strip on the top,outer toebox can be felt on the inside! This is not the case in the Nimbus 15. I'm a long- time Nimbus wearer, but I had to return these shoes and go back to the 15s. I've complained to ASICS, and hope they fix this problem soon.

                                                      I run about 20-25 miles a week, my first pair of Asics were the Nimbus 15 and I loved them, recently just bought the Nimbus 16 and Asics, once again did a fabulous job with these shoes!
                                                      I would highly recommend these shoes to anyone with an average, to high arch!

                                                        I run 35 hard miles a week on roads and have been wearing the Nimbus for 4 years. I was eager for the Nimbus 16 to arrive because the 15 lacked the superior Nimbus cushioning. The 16 has the cushioning of previous versions (12 and 13 were my favorite,) but it is tighter in the toe box than any of them. Wear thin socks with the 16.
