    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe:

    I'm training for the Dallas Carry the Load 20 hour, 15 minute walk. I'm putting in quite a few 4-5 hour hard walks 3-4 times a week. As the weather warms, I need a shoe that wicks away the sweat (I'm heavy foot sweater.), stands up to the 30K plus steps and supports my 265 lbs frame.

    For grins, I completed a 5K this past weekend running for the first time since 1990. No tenderness or soreness in knees that 2 doctors wanted to cut on years ago when I was 50 lbs lighter. No blisters or hot spots with brand new shoes.

    I should add, the next day after the 5K, I was on the paved trail walking a short 13 mile, 15 min pace/mile.

    I have both the green and white/blue shoes. Both look and feel great. Do go with the extra 1/2 size.

    Only negative was these were very new and still had the strong odor from just being made as they came out of the box. 5 hours after each had road time, odor was gone.

    Just use these as a change of pace from the cumulus. It's an okay shoe. Nothing negative about it. A good average shoe for flexibility and cushioning

    Great Cushioning for Clydesdales!

    By Craig

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe:

    I was a long-time Adidas guy until they transitioned into "boost" mode a couple years back and no longer had a shoe in the Neutral + category. (Since I weigh 190, cushioning is a top priority.) So I switched to ASICS Nimbus-16, which I ran in for 300 miles.Great shoe. I've just replaced the 16's Nimbus 17's. When comparing Adidas and ASICS, there's definitely a difference in how the cushioning feels. There's more of a rebound feel with Adidas. ASICS absorbs the impact no problem, but doesn't seem to rebound. Of course, at my pace, rebound isn't a factor. As far as sizing is concerned, I have a narrow foot with high arches. I wear a 12 street shoe. With Adidas, I upsized to 13 and that fit great. With ASICS, the 13 was too big, especially in the toe box. So I wear an ASICS size 12 1/2. Would I recommend the Nimbus 17's? Absolutely.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe:

    Wear these for walking on asphalt, concrete, dirt roads. I buy 1/2 size up from my running shoes. These have excellent cushioning, fit true to size (1/2 size larger than running shoe), outsole wearing well after 3 weeks. 3-5 mile daily walks w/ no fatigue or issues. Highly recommended.

    Lives Up to the Billing

    By Micheal

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe:

    Very cushioned in forefoot and heel. Which is surprising, as most shoe makers talk about forefoot cushioning but rarely do the products live up to their billing. Very light. Fit is normal. All around great shoe. The test will be long term wear. I am not a super high mileage runner, so I anticipate this pair will last a reasonable amount of time.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe:

    Very comfortable show, but shorter than my Gel-Cumulus 17s. I bought the usual 1/2 size larger, but they aren't quite as roomy. I do like the extra cushion, and saw an immediate improvement!

      I've been buying this model for years, every time I wear a pair out I just get the next version. Sole wear is great, Ive never worn the soles out, I usually wear out the lining, specifically the inside of the heel. Not sure why, but who cares. The shoes are good, great cushioning.

      First time reviewing shoes, but these are amazing. I had the nimbus 16 before this and the 17 didn't let me down. The cushion insoles feels like i'm running on a cloud and they were everything I came to expect with the 16's. Ample room in the toe and not one complaint. Well made shoes. I run maybe 3 miles a day M-F on concrete and these shoes don't give me knee pain like some Nike's I had prior.
