Men's ASICS Gel-Nimbus 25
The updated ASICS Gel-Nimbus provides even more comfort and cushion with a sleek updated look and feel.
The legendary ASICS Gel-Nimbus 25 just got more comfortable and cushioned.
Whether you are learning how to run or have dozens of races under your belt, the Gel-Nimbus 25 has been completely redesigned to give you the best experience possible. Continuing its tradition of being one of the best running shoes, ASICS gave the Nimbus 25 more cushioning, adding 20% more FF Blast™ Plus Eco foam underfoot that is made with at least 20% bio-based material from renewable sources.
ASICS updated its gel with brand new PureGEL™ technology that is lighter and softer. It is strategically positioned in the heel to give you enhanced shock absorption, softer landings and smoother transitions.
A brand new upper completes the redesign of the Nimbus with an updated tongue and collar construction that has more stretch and extends around the ankle to give you a plush and premium experience.
Whether you are training for a race or standing all day for work, the ASICS Gel-Nimbus 25 is one of the most cushioned shoes and will keep you comfortable day in and day out.

Heel: 41.5 mm / Forefoot: 33.5 mm (M)

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.

The Asics Gel-Nimbus 25 is an excellent max cushioned shoe! The fit is exceptional and the upper provides a comfortable lockdown. The midsole provides a cushioned ride for those medium and long miles in any training cycle. I’ve ran in wet conditions on pavement and found no slippage or sliding. The outsole is still holding up after 150 miles. The toe off is still bouncy and energetic and midsole still out of the box comfy! It is by far the most comfortable shoe I’ve trained in. I find that I can still pick up the pace a bit even though it’s in the max cushioned category. Of course there will be lighter and faster shoes and others that have better gripping outsoles, but in the max cushioned category, the Gel-Nimbus 25’s provided me with best comfort and cushioned ride for my long runs. In the max cushioned category…definitely a 5! I’m using it for my first marathon in a few weeks! I have a carbon plated racing shoe, but on my first marathon…going with comfort and fit!
I have used the nimbus series for sometime. The 25’s are like wearing pillows on my feet. Very comfortable.
I have some pain in both of my feet and these Nimbus sneakers are the most cushy comfortable sneakers I've ever owned!
Super comfortable shoes. Would absolutely love to give it a 5.... However, I feel a difference between the left foot and the right foot when I walk. Kinda like I'm walking off-balance. Will try a few more times before returning if issue doesn't correct itself.
