      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Lite-Show Running Shoe:

      This is the best Nimbus yet. I bought the white ones first and liked them so much I now have a pair of each color including Lite Show. I really like the green and the additional reflectivity is perfect for running at night or real early in the morning.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Lite-Show Running Shoe:

        I have had the Nimbus 16 Lite Show for a few weeks and have found it to be a solid, comfortable shoe. The cushioning is very good, although I think the 15 was better. The downside is the narrow toe box. Unlike the 15, which I could wear in my normal shoe size without issues, I had to send the first set of 16's back and go up a half size. The fit is good going up a half size, it's just frustrating when the sizes are not consistent. The reflective factor is super, although the orange in the Cumulus Lite Show is the color I would have preferred, rather than the green of the Nimbus 16. Maybe in the 17's we can get that orange.
