What’s New

ASICS added their PureGel technology to the Gel-Nimbus 25, which increases shock absorption and is softer, bouncier and more sustainable than the gel used in the Gel-Nimbus 24. They redesigned the shoe adding 20% more FF Blast+ foam and an extra 4 mm of stack height. Plus, they extended the heel and decreased the heel-to-toe drop to 8 mm to give you a softer, lighter and smoother ride.

ASICS also redesigned the upper, giving it a stretchy knit upper that adapts to your foot for the perfect fit. There is more cushion and padding around the heel collar and a new lacing system to lock your foot down and provide structure.

Who It’s Best For

The ASICS Gel-Nimbus 25 is great for runners or walkers who love cushion and comfort. Whether you are running long distances or walking the dog around the block, this shoe will work well.

Why You’ll Love It

With more cushion and an updated look, you will love the new PureGel experience underfoot and the overall comfort of the new Gel-Nimbus 25.

Smooth shoe glad I switched back to Asics

CHibberd 4 months ago Verified Purchase

great neutral fit soft sole running feels easy again. At 6' and 195lbs these are a great shoe for my casual runs 3 times/week at 9:30-10:30 min/miles. Much better feel than previous Hokas

LOVE the Men's | ASICS Gel-Nimbus 25

SK 5 months ago Verified Purchase

Wow...this is the most comfortable gym shoe I've ever worn. I have back issues and I feel more comfortable IN this shoe than out of it. I use an elliptical machine daily and this provides support no foot pain (like every other shoe I've had) and super comfort. I ordered a few more to have them for a while. Easy to put on without untying and retying too. Get this shoe!

Beat Hoka for cushioning

Jim F 6 months ago Verified Purchase

Can't beat the cushioning: just the thing to keep the knee surgeon off my case for restarting training runs after replacement surgery.
