Better than the 15 and the 17

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

    The toe box is much roomier than the 15, which my feet need. I bought the nimbus 17 but because the 16 has a roomier toe box, I bought another pair of the 16. Alternating them on my runs, keeps my toes happy. Both are highly cushioned and keep me going for miles.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

      I loved the Nimbus 15. After reading all the comments I bought both the Nimbus 17 because of the better reviews but decided to also try the 16 because they were on sale. The 16 fits me and my feet better so much that I bought three pairs! Comparing the 16 and 17. The 17 is more cushioned. For me that is almost too much cushioning. The 16 is a little more sprigy and I like that. This said it is cushioned and comfortable. The 17 are also a little wider. I have narrow feet for the narrower fit of the 16 fits me better. The heal fits my feet perfectly too. So my recommendation is that if you have narrow feet you give these a try.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

        My previous shoes were Asics and I loved them so much I wanted a similar replacement, but this style is considerably more narrow. I loosened the laces so much that I barely have enough left to tie them. Even so, my toes are so squished from the sides that my feet go completely numb after a few minutes of running. I gave them a week to loosen up, but to no avail. I love the look of them and they seem well cushioned so am genuinely disappointed that they will have to go back.

          I love the Asics Gel nimbus. I have two pins in my foot from a bad break. These shoes have the best support for running. I love the neutral shoe with a little more cushion. I run, walk and cross train in them on a daily basis. I have 3 pairs of the Nimbus that I rotate daily so I don't wear them out.

            I love these shoes. They are cushioned but not too much. They provide good support and are comfortable right out of the box. I run in a neutral shoe but have some pronation issues with my right foot and these shoes manage that without over-correcting. I'm training for a marathon and so far, this shoe is fitting the bill.

                    I usually wear a 9.5 but had to get these in a 10. This is my third pair of the Nimbus 16s. I have IT band problems because I'm a heal striker. These shoes have great cushioning for those long runs and have helped me ease my IT bands. They're like wearing slippers! I've ran and trained for 3 marathons and one ultra marathon in these shoes and they STILL feel brand new.

                      I've been running for 15 years and recently ran my first marathon. I loved my nimbus 15. I suffered from planter facitis. This shoe has so much cushion they feel so comfortable. But you will have to get them a half size bigger because of all the cushion. I decided to try hokaone because I heard that they were also good for PF. But they don't have the cushion that I need around the heel. So I purchased the nimbus 16 and my feet feel great. No pain in my heel or bottom of feet. These are my favorite shoes for pavement.

                        I wear them to work because I stand all day in retail. They have really helped my feet and my back. Highly recommend.

                                This is a great shoe! I am a runner and love these shoes. I have run in the Nimbus for years and love them. These are right on par with the amount of cushion needed for someone that runs daily. The comfort is unbeatable and my joints thank me every day I wear them!

                                      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

                                            These shoes were recommended to me after my evaluation with Shoedog in July. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever run in! The knee pain I was experiencing during running disappeared after I started running in these shoes.

                                            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 this shoe! My feet feel like they have great stability and protection and yet the shoe does not feel heavy. I love the regular shoe laces with the GEL Nimbus 16! The laces on the 15 were just difficult to tie.

                                                        This is the first pair of Gel-Nimbus that have owned. I think they compare to the other Asics that I have worn in the past. Great shoe for distance running.
