Shoe Review: ASICS GEL-Cumulus 20

ASICS celebrates 20 years with a brand new GEL-Cumulus 20

The popular ASICS GEL-Cumulus® celebrates 20 years this year (2018) with a new, stylized update to a brand favorite. And we got first eyes:


Weight: 10.05 oz. for men’s size 9; 8.32 oz. for women’s size 7

Heel-to-toe drop: 10 mm

MSRP: $120


The updated model offers an updated guidance system that enhances your natural stride without feeling overly supportive or cumbersome. The heel counter fits securely (and comfortably) around the heel, the midfoot feels snug, and the forefoot feels more open and breathable compared to previous models. 


Thanks to the combination of ASCIS’ proprietary FlyteFoam midsole and GEL cushioning in the forefoot, the ride feels smooth and stable. While we wouldn’t classify the GEL-Cumulus® 20 as a lightweight trainer, this version offers a plush, pillow-y ride.


The forthcoming ASICS GEL-Cumulus® 20 is an all-around solid trainer for runners of all levels. It’s best for mileage days and long runs when you want a stable, plush shoe.
