ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21
Launch: January 15, 2019
ASICS didn’t make many changes when they released the next edition of the popular GEL-Nimbus early this year. Now in its second decade, the GEL-Nimbus 21 still looks and feels like the iconic long-distance trainer it’s always been. But that doesn’t mean ASICS left it entirely alone: Designers filled in the outsole to give the shoe full ground contact for a smoother ride.
Fleet Feet testers say the shoe feels bouncy and responsive on long training runs, and it’s lighter than its cushion would have you believe. ASICS didn’t change much about the Nimbus 21, which suits us just fine.ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21 Review
