Restores My Faith In ASICS

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

I am not a professional athlete or what one would consider an avid runner, I am just an average person who was never very athletic but exercises to maintain good health.

I work out a few days a week at a local gym which has a walking/running track above two tennis courts.

My routine consists of an approximately 30 minute upper body workout with light weights and jogging approximately one mile on the hard track.

I have what may be considered bowed legs and I have relatively poor biomechanics which makes my feet and ankles really hurt after my jog.

For me, the most important issue is how much cushioning and shock absorption an athletic shoe provides. I do not care if the shoe is light, I do not care if it is endorsed by some famous athlete, etc. I just want maximum cushioning so that the bottom of my feet and my ankles do not hurt after jogging on hard surfaces.

I bought my first pair of ASCIS gels in 1990 and I was very impressed with the shock absorption over shoes made by Nike, New Balance, etc.

Over the years, I grew to like the Gel Cumulus line. I thought they had good shock absorption for their cost.

In 2007, an RRS Associate recommended the Nimbus 9. I usually get size 8 4E, but they only had the Nimbus in 2E. I tried them and thought they were too stiff and did not provide as good of cushioning as the Cumulus.

I stayed with the Cumulus line until I tried the awful Cumulus 14 in September 2013. The Cumulus 14's were the least cushioned, least shock absorbing, and most uncomfortable ASICS shoes I had ever ever purchased even though I got them in my usual size 8 4E.

I was thinking seriously about leaving the ASICS brand when a RRS Associate recommended the Nimubus 16. I was very skeptical - especially considering my previous negative experience with the Nimbus 9's, but with the RRS 90 day return policy, I decided to this would be the last chance that I would give ASICS.

I got my Nimubs 16's in white/black size 8 4E. My opinion is that these are the most shock absorbing ASICS that I have worn in many, many, years. They could use a little more gel in the front of the shoe on the outside, but overall, these are great shoes.

There is no comparison between these Nimbus 16's that I am wearing now and the awful Nimbus 9's from 2007 and the horrendous Cumulus 14's from 2013.

If cushioning is the most important feature in an athletic shoe for you as it is for me, you should seriously consider the Nimbus 16.

I was about to leave ASICS for good, but now my faith has been restored.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

    Bought the GEL-Nimbus 16s as my first proper running only shoe. I run 10-15 miles a week on pavement only and it has been a huge step up from regular athletic shoes. Of all the 2E width shoes I tried, these were head and shoulders above the rest for me. I'm about 50 miles in now and they still feel great and there is barely any wear. They feel incredibly cushon-y and like running on giant pillows. Incredibly soft and easy on your feet. Just ran the entire 5k of the Color run this past weekend and my feet felt great.

    I will say as the only negative I could think of - the tongue seems thicker than any other tennis shoe I've worn. On my left foot, it caused an irritation on the top of my foot after 1-2 miles that I've never had before. Instead of returning them, I looked up some different ways to lace shoes and tried a few new lacing setups before settling on one that eased the irritation. So now I have crossed laces on one, parallel on the other, and happy feet. It's been fantastic ever since.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

    I said I was a "gym Rat" because nothing else applied. I walk. Hills on pavement and boardwalks. 5-7 miles 2-4x/week. The fabric inside the heel at the top (where it rolls over) wears out, bundles and causes blisters. The rest of the show looks brand new, but I have to buy a new pair every could months to avoid the ongoing blister problem. VERY frustrating considering these are NOT cheap shoes.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

      I've been running for over 40 years and have been using Asics cushioned shoes since the early '90's. In recent years the Landreth has been my favorite - the fit was perfect and I really liked the firm cushioning - I probably had 8 pairs of them, maybe more. They were discontinued and I then bought the Nimbus 16's. I've run in the previous Nimbus models before and liked them, even though I thought they were getting pricy. I've found the 16's to be way too soft for me. It feels like my heel is practically hitting the pavement with every stride. I probably put 40 miles on them before I decided to retire them. I also think the inside upper of the shoe, particularly the tongue, is not as well finished as the Landreth. The fit was fine but it was just too soft. I would have returned them if I'd come to this conclusion sooner. My Mizuno Wave Rider 18's have the perfect blend of fit and firm cushioning for me.

        Finding a shoe that is comfortable is tough. Been running w/ Nike Lunar Glides. I found this shoe comfortable, but after giving ASICS another try I'm finding that the too soft and little support Nike Lunar Glides may have been the reason for my frequent running injuries. The ASICS nimbus are durable, light, and have a firm sole that keep my feet comfortable and make me feel confident on the road. Again. Thank you

          Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

          I've been running 10 miles every Saturday for several years. I recently went from Mizuno Wave Creation 13's to Wave Creation 15's, and I don't know what they did to the shoe, but my calves killed me from the very first run in them! After a few weeks, running less and less distance each time, I had to stop running completely for 10 days.

          I decided to try these Nimbus 16's, and they felt great from the very first run! Since I had injured my calves, I started at 5 miles, then went 7 and then 9, and the last two weeks I got back to my regular 10 miles! An added bonus is that my feet and ankles feel better now too.

          So ... sorry Mizuno, but thank you Asics!

              These were the first Asics shoes I have had to immediately return as they felt too narrow compared with the Nimbus 15.
              IMHO The cushioning is not as good as the Nimbus 15.
              I immediately bought another couple of pairs of Nimbus 15's and will await the Nimbus 17 improvements.

                I've had exceptionally good luck with both the ASICS Nimbus and Kinsei shoes. I've run about 50 marathons since switching from New Balance to ASICS in Jan 2012, and have had far fewer injuries and better overall performance from my shoes. This pair of Nimbus was delivered about 10 days ago. I put only 14 miles in training runs on them. Then I ran a full marathon yesterday. No problems at all! Love these shoes!

                  I have been running in ASICS Gel-Nimbus series since April 2011 and absolutely love them. I started with Gel-Nimbus 12's went to the 15 Lite-Show and just recently (Nov 2014) got a pair of 16's.

                  Now, I'm not saying they're the reason, but I took 1st in the Men's 40-49 age group at the KC Running Company sponsored Mustache Dash 5K in Omaha, NE wearing my new Gel-Nimbus 16's. But they helped.

                  They are so comfortable, well padded, light and breathable. I love the roomy, mesh toe box. It's not restricting and allows my feet to breath on hot days.

                    Had previously been running in the Asics 2100 and 2000 series shoes. The Nimbus has a plush interior and softer ride feeling. Stability is sufficient for those without gait dysfunctional issues.

                        I was always a nike shoe runner since 1973 (red waffle shoes) but now nike wears wrong for me. I am older now 57 years old, and my ankles would twist
                        and the nikes wear uneven, and i would have leg and hip pains at night.
                        I went to R R had the guy do a shoe fit and got my nimbus 16 asics the
                        legs feel great and do 40 miles a week. I will be ready for old man road racing soon.
                        Thank you R R

                          I've been running in the Gel-Nimbus for many years and have been extremely satisfied with this shoe. The Gel-Nimbus fits well, wears evenly and provides me with a stable platform which to run.

                                  I have been using Asics Nimbus for years, but decided on a whim to try some Hokas. Big mistake! The Hokas never fit quite right and created lots of blisters and bruises. It's nice to be back in the tried and true.

                                  This is a great shoe, awesome support for a neutral shoe. The arch support is not the best but I have high arches. I bought a different insert and it fixed the problem.

                                  I have run in the Nimbus since the 8. These are by far my favorite. Best cushioning, best fit, and most comfortable of all the models I've had. Bought a half size up and they are perfect. Buy them you won't be disappointed.

                                  The shoe is expensive but worth the price. From the box I was able to take the shoes out on a 5 mile road run. The shoe is cushioned both in the forefoot and heel, creating a soft cushioned running experience. The only down side I have discovered is the shoe is not very breathable, it is a warm shoe and great for the fall running, but I fear in the spring and in summer this shoe would heat up your feet on the run. The shoe wears well and is the cushioning is lasting with the miles I have placed on the shoe. I would recommend this shoe to anyone looking for a cushioned durable shoe to train in.

                                    I'm 5-10, 185 lb and avg. 20 miles a week. This is my 7th version of the Nimbus and once again, a great shoe. I have not had some of the issues people mention regarding the toe box. Fit is spot on. This is indeed the softest and most cushioned Nimbus yet. This is fine for me for long runs. Serious runners will definitely want a different shoe for speed workouts, and pace runs. But if you want or need a cushioned ride and are pounding pavement - this is your shoe.
