Kid's ASICS® GEL-NIMBUS® 16 :: Let your little ones loose to have a blast on the playground, feeling confident that you're sending them off in a shoe that provides maximum comfort and performance with the Kid's ASICS® GEL-Nimbus® 16. They'll be equipped for a plush day of fun and adventure with the GEL® Cushioning System that provides maximum protection and bounce, and the ASICS® Guidance Line® technology that keeps their strides solid and stable. Plus, you'll rest easy knowing your little athletes won't outgrow or wear-out these shoes overnight thanks to the kids-specific midsole and reinforced stitched toe cap added to meet the demands of rugged wear and growing feet.
Features & Benefits:
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems: Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement on multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle
Reinforced Stitched Toe Cap
Trusstic System: Reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe
Guidance Line: Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency
Guidance Trusstic System: Integrates Guidance Line construction for enhanced gait efficiency while providing midfoot structural integrity
I bought these for my 13-year-old boy. He is a low-mileage runner (up to 20 miles per week the past two years). He has had no injuries in the past when wearing the Nimbus in women's shoes (feet still too small for a men's), but we thought we would try these in a more manly color. I noticed right away that he was making loud slapping sounds when he ran - his feet were almost silent in the women's Nimbus. After about a month he has shin splints. He's now wearing my Nimbus shoes until his arrive. He said the cushioning is not nearly as good in the kid's version. If your child needs them for PE or just wearing around they are great, but they aren't a running shoe for those that run mostly on concrete.
