Gel Nimbus 17

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe:

I have the Gel Nimbus 17s in four different colors. It's strange how each color fits differently--in the same size! Why would this happen? This color--the white/pink/purple--are the least comfortable of the four that I own. They just don't have the cushioning that the others have. I kept them for walking--even though I am a runner.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe:

The first time I wore these shoes it was great. It felt like I was running on cushions compared to my previous pair of running shoes. They fit perfectly, true to size, and I felt like I could run forever. I've been looking for a good pair of running shoes for a long time and I believe I found them. I will definitely be getting these again.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe:

I have worn Ascis Gel-Nimbus for years, but I've found the last couple of pairs I've purchased to be of poor quality. These came out of the box and seemed to be warped. Like maybe they were left in heated storage too long. They didn't seem to be even or sit flat on a surface (rocked). I assumed that would change once I wore them a few times. After a few runs, my feet just hurt. The cushioning and support was just not there. Thank goodness for the VIP status as these were returned.

Favorite running shoe. Log 30 - 35 miles a week and love the cushion this model gives. Wish they would keep making the 17. I'm an older runner and need the extra cushion. Highly recommend.

These are my go-to runners-I buy several pair a year. My last two pair of nimbus runners, the heels have worn through when I've had a short time. I hope this pair have better longevity. The laces seem shorter on this new pair.

      Disappointed in newest model because of blisters

      By Wilson

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe:

      I have bought the Ascis gel nimbus shoe for many years and have always loved the cushion and lightweight feel of the shoe. I have worn them new with no issues until this current #17. After running a couple of times and then walking, I developed a painful blister on the back of both feet by the heel. The right foot became swollen and hot and tender and painful to walk, sit or stand. I wonder if there is a change in the shoe? Very disappointed.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe:

        The jury is still out on these. I've worn Asics for years as they help keep my feet happy. These feel a little stiff unlike prior pairs that never needed a "breaking in" period. Cushioning is just ok. Will stick with them for now as I'm rehabbing from Achilles surgery but I'm not sure I'll buy them again when it comes time for final marathon prep this winter.

        I've worn Asics for many years but something has changed with my feet. While I love the fit and the feel of this shoe, the toe box isn't big enough for my right foot. I will have to return them and stick with Altras.

        I have been wearing Asics for about 35 years and love the Gel Nimbus. It is cushiony but also supportive. I run about 35-65 miles a week and run marathons, 50ks, 50 milers and 100 milers. I run primarily on trails and the Asics Gel Nimbus works well.

          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe:

          I use my Asics for all my workouts...running, biking, elliptical, abs, etc. Very comfortable. The only "knock" is that the tops of my feet go numb after more than 45 minutes on the elliptical. I must have them laced too tight. Otherwise, a great shoe at a great price. I really liked the no hassle returns.
