Men's Shoes Neutral Running ASICS ASICS GEL-Nimbus

ASICS Gel-Nimbus 23 Lite-Show


Light up the night in the men’s ASICS GEL-Nimbus 23 Lite-Show. This running shoe incorporates reflective accents throughout the design, which allow you to stay more visible in low-light conditions.

Besides the additional visibility, the ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite-Show features the same great functions as regular GEL-Nimbus 23. ASICS re-designed the gel cushioning in the Nimbus to give it a softer feel and compress more when you land. This gel works with ASICS’ FlyteFoam to give it a smooth, cushioned ride.

The upper features a soft, engineered mesh that accommodates most foot sizes. The stretchy midfoot paneling and new eyelet shaping help the shoe hug the foot and move with it naturally. The ASICS GEL-Nimbus 23 Lite-Show is the perfect shoe to run in all night long.

Who It’s Best For + -

This is a great shoe for long distance runners who do some of their training in the dark. The Nimbus 23 is a great everyday shoe for those who love a lot of cushion.

Why You’ll Love It + -
