Read our review of the ASICS Gel-Cumulus 24


Run for miles in the soft, comfortable ASICS GEL-Cumulus 24.

The legendary ASICS GEL-Cumulus gets an update to make it softer and more plush. ASICS added FF Blast foam to the midsole that gives it a soft, responsive ride. Plus, designers increased the stack height of the foam to give you a more comfortable run. ASICS’ signature rearfoot and forefoot gel technology provides impact absorption and a softer feeling at the forefoot.

ASICS use their gender-specific 3D Space Construction, which compresses differently to address the biological differences between men’s and women’s feet. They also continued their trend of decreasing the heel-to-toe drop from previous models to provide full ground contact for a smoother and more efficient run.

The new outsole of the GEL-Cumulus 24 is made of ASICS Lite and contains flex grooves to give you some flexibility at push off. This is a stronger and more durable material than standard outsoles. Testers loved the new outsole in the GEL-Cumulus because it gives traction and grip, while being minimal and durable in our ASICS GEL-Cumulus 24 review.

The jacquard mesh upper wraps around your foot for a comfortable fit. The new mesh is more breathable to prevent your feet from sweating when you are bringing the heat during your run. It also stays true to ASICS sustainability measures and is made with recycled materials to reduce waste and carbon emissions. The tongue and heel are both padded to provide the ultimate in comfort and the tongue is semi-gusseted, so it stays in place throughout the run.

Although it is known as one of the best running shoes for beginners, the ASICS GEL-Cumulus 24 is a workhorse of a shoe for anyone who is running or walking.

ASICS made quite a few changes to the GEL-Cumulus 24 to make it softer and more comfortable. The biggest change is adding the FF Blast foam to the midsole, which gives the Cumulus a more responsive and cushioned feel. They were able to increase the stack height of the shoe with the new foam. They also gave the shoe full ground contact and decreased the heel to toe drop from 10mm to 8mm for a smoother, more efficient ride. A new ASICS Lite outsole provides more durability and traction. Finally, ASICS improved the upper by changing the heel for an improved fit and making it more breathable.

Who It’s Best For

The ASICS GEL-Cumulus 24 is a great everyday training shoe. Whether you are a beginner just starting out or are running your 50th marathon, this shoe will get the job done.

Pretty easy review

I gave this a one star because there’s no other option. I ordered a pair and a day later I got an email saying sorry these are unavailable. Then an email asking me to rate what I couldn’t order! Way to go Fleet Feet!

Great comfortable shoe for everyday wear

Bought ASICS Gel Nimbus 24 initially. Had worn Nimbus in size 11 1/2 for last decade or more. Current edition had a really narrow toe box a new tongue design and was just not comfortable. Returned them after trying to break them in and finally gave up. Tried on the new edition of Cumulus (24) and got it in a 12 medium width. Great cushion and heel support and most importantly great width in toe box. Highly recommend this for everyday comfort. Don’t run anymore so can’t comment but comfortably for long walks.

I very much appreciate the fitting process and Maggie's expertise and care that goes into fitting my kids. Knowing they leave with a well fitting pair of shoes is a relief. Thank you!
