The ASICS Gel Nimbus Lite 3 is topped off with a stretchy mesh upper made with over 60 percent recycled polyester. A thin gusseted knit tongue locks down the fit.
“The bootie construction with its soft, stretchy upper and tongue fabric makes these shoes comfortable right out of the box. Since they are so stretchy and flexible, I didn’t get any spots whatsoever,” says one reviewer.
A plush, padded heel collar wraps around your heel and ankle, allowing just enough flexibility without sacrificing support.
“The heel collar is really plush and comfy. The material is super soft and the cushion practically melts around my ankle. Also, the tongue is super stretchy. Something about the stretching sensation when I tug the shoe on is super satisfying,” one reviewer says.
Some reviewers were nervous that the thin mesh upper wouldn’t provide enough support, but they were pleasantly surprised.
