Men's Shoes Neutral Running ASICS ASICS GEL-Nimbus

ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite


[Looking for the newest model? Check out the ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite 2]

The men's ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite is built to be light on your feet—and the planet.

ASICS engineered the Nimbus Lite’s upper from recycled plastic, which creates a soft and smooth mesh that also diverts waste from landfills.

A new full-length FlyteFoam midsole cushions the shoe with the help of a byproduct of sugarcane processing called cellulose nanofiber. When worked into the foam, the nanofiber creates a soft, durable ride for hundreds of miles of smooth running.

In the ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite review, Fleet Feet testers loved the plush and lightweight ride provided by the FlyteFoam midsole.

With ASICS GEL technology in the heel and forefoot for a touch of extra cushion, the men's ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite delivers big comfort with a little footprint.

Nimbus Lite - Wonderful Surprise

Love Nimbus Lite as a daily trainer. Lighter and more flexible than regular Nimbus (my last pair was Nimbus 21). Nice cushion throughout the length of the shoe, from forefoot to the heel, yet light. Could have reduced some rubber on the outer sole to maybe reduce a bit more weight (?). For me, the heel cushion could have been a bit firmer to provide that responsiveness (but I am being picky). On another note, Fleet Feet has been terrific during this pandemic, with the online purchases and its shipping. Services have been superb.
