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.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

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.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

    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.

      I am getting back into extra walking and running after a 2 year break. Shin splints has been as serious issue and I still cannot run for long periods of time. These shoes are comfortable and after two weeks of wear still feel great. I love having a soft feel when landing on my feet while running and these shoes do it for me. No issues so far and the shoes stick to my feet without twisting which is a plus.

        I average 20-30 miles a week running and most of it is on pavement. I have religously used the Gel-Nimbus for the past four years and I love them. I have found no other shoe that even compares to the Gel-Nimbus for road running, especially since I have a bad knee. Highly recommend this shoe.

            Love asics shoes--have worn them for years. Usually get the nimbus and cumulus shoes. The nimbus 16's were very comfy, but felt a bit narrow in the toe box. I sent those back and got some Kayano's and they felt better to me. I wear all my shoes with orthotics and these just felt better to me in the forefoot.

              I average about 30-35 miles weekly. The Gel-Nimbus has been my preferred running shoe for several years. The 16 is the best yet. It has great heel and forefoot cushioning while at the same time having a fantastic look. I've found it best to have about 3 pair amongst which I can rotate. This tends to lengthen the life of each of the pairs of the shoes longer than otherwise. I highly recommend this shoe to anyone looking for a cushioned neutral shoe.

                      Normally run in stability shoes; but, decided to give the Nimbus 16 a try based on friends' recommendations and my desire to have more cushioning. The Nimbus 16 is a plush, comfortable shoe. I do not have any knowledge regarding previous models. The Nimbus 16 also provides sufficient stability and is not restrictive.

                        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.

                        This is the best shoe for me now. Ever since I had issues with my achilles and plantar fasciitis switching to a heavery shoe with above 10mm heel to toe drop has made me 100%. Yes it's a bit heavier shoe and i'm a bit slower but I enjoy feeling great all the time :) THANK YOU Nibus16 :)

                        I have been running on the Gel Nimbus series since #6 (I think) - at least since 2005, and have run over 50 marathons with them. Best running shoe ever until the 15 which caused plantar fasciatis for me. I retuned them to RRS and got the GN 16 as a replacement and no problems. The Asics Gel Nimbus is back in my favor!

                        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

                        I purchased the Nimbus 16, 3 pairs, because I rotate my shoes. I am a firm believer to always rotate usage of running shoes for the following reasons: your feet sweat approximately a pound of water and you need to allow the shoes to air out; running in the same shoe day after day lessens the life support of the shoe and may cause injury to the runner. I wear orthotics to support my medium to high arch so I purchase the men's Nimbus. After 44 years of running and 6 years of walking I developed what some sports specialists call aged foot spread. I find the Nimbus 16 D running narrow in the toe box and require a bit more room as my feet tend to swell some while walking 5-8 miles a day, 6 days a week. I ordered a Nimbus 2E, but the arch width and heal width were too wide to provide my foot adequate support. I am returning all 3 pairs of the Nimbus 16 at this time. I was fortunate to purchase 2 extra of the Nimbus 15 before they became extinct and hope these will carry me until either a new Nimbus 17 comes out, or search for a manufacturer brand that will meet my needs. In comparing the 15s to the 16s I believe the Nimbus 15 may have slightly more cushion in the forefoot than the Nimbus 16, a feature I benefit from. I am hoping the manufacturer takes another look at the Nimbus 15 & 16 and puts back that extra room in the toe box like the Nimbus 15. I am grateful to the Men's Nimbus 15 D! Thank you, Janet

                          After running with Nimbus for 10 years, I switched to Kinsei 4 after a horrible marathon experience with Nimbus 14. Then to Kinsei 5 which tore and split on top of forefoot soon after purchase. Back to Nimbus 16 and the magic has returned! Great fit and cushioning...like running on air.

                            I've been running on the Nimbus since the much-hated 14 (which I liked). Nimbus is my favorite running shoe and this is my favorite versin of it! The colors are good. The color schemes for the Nimbus 15s were atrocious. Especially the women's colors, but that's for a different review. These have great cushioning and feel very comfortable even on my double digit mileage runs, despite my VERY high arches.

                                I've run several times in my new shoes and I'm liking them so far. I run three to four times a week at an average distance of four miles a run. I have Fred Flintstone feet and the 2E width is more than roomy enough, even the toe box. I'm also a big boy and the cushioning feels great. A word to the wise, you do need to order a half size up. So far, so good!

                                I've been running the Nimbus for several of its generations and loved the 15 - great right out of the box and I ran through three pairs of them. I've only put in about 30 miles but the 16 is definitely narrower through the toe box and as others have noted you can't stretch the lacing to gain any room. Cushioning is great and very stable. Disappointed with the width in the toe box.

                                  Owned a pair of Nike Lunar Glides before, and just when I thought things couldn't get any better, I finally switched to Asics and bought this pair and I coudn't be happier with my purchase. My first run with these I was able to run 2 miles more than I an usually do. That erased about 2 months of training for me. A great buy.

                                    Running for 21 km per week on pavement they feel comfortable and soft on impact. good lateral support as well. Started running on treadmill and no problems either, smooth and comfortable ride.

                                      Over the years I've bought 4-5 pairs of Asics Nimbus including 2 pairs of 15's. They're comfortable and last at least 2yrs. of moderate running & use at the gym. Some reviewers have said that the toe box seems smaller but I've had no problems even with my right foot bunion.

                                        I run 12 to 20 miles a week. I want the most cushioned shoe and this can't be beat. Extremely soft ride. Just the right color scheme -- I love blue -- and sizing. It's a tad pricey, but well worth it for the runner who runs many miles on hard pavement. With these, running on concrete feels as soft as a trail run. Highly recommended.

                                              Great cushioning. Toebox seem narrow compared to m 15s but maybe they need to be broken in more. Orthotics fit well and provides excellent cushioning and support for an underpronator, flat footed runner.
