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.

What’s New

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.

Comfortable but Hot Soles

Eva 6 months ago Verified Purchase

Bought these to train for a half marathon and had high hopes. Right off the bat they are SO cushy & comfortable but after about 4 miles the soles of my feet felt extremely hot. I wish I could’ve kept these but I had to return. I think they’d be better for people who run 3 miles or under and/or walk.

This asics is now my favorite even over the Brooks adrenaline that I’ve been wearing for years. I run between 3-6 miles most days. Sometimes I run up to 10. I have had plantar fasciitis in the past and it’s not a problem with these. Very comfortable. Great cushion.

Great Shoe

Kellie 1 year ago Verified Purchase

I have been a Brooks GTS fan for several years. I just happened to try these on mainly bc I loved the color. I was instantly in love with the support and cushioning. These feel amazing on my feet and still do after a 12 hour shift in healthcare. I totally recommend to anyone who spends hours on their feet and walk a lot.

Great purchase & experience

Merideth W 1 year ago Verified Purchase

I could not have been more pleased with my shopping experience at Fleet Feet. The customer service rep took his time to scan my feet and help explain the results. He then pulled about 7 pairs of shoes for me to try. Once we found the best ones he let me order the color I preferred online and they arrived at my house the next day. Clean store with helpful employees. Such a nice find!

Fit Great

TERI H 1 year ago Verified Purchase

Thanks to Fleet Feet diagnosis of my feet and what shoe I needed I purchased 2 pair of these shoes. They are lightweight on my feet and feel great on my feet. I do not have the pain when walking on pavement to my back and feet. I will definitely be back to Fleet Feet when I wear these out to have my feet diagnosed again or order more shoes from them. I have recommended Fleet Feet to my family and friends.

Pretty comfortable

als 1 year ago Verified Purchase

These shoes are comfortable although they are a little tight on top. I like the fact that the back is not too high like so many running shoes I tried. No rubbing in the heel or Achilles area. I wear them for everyday use and walking not for running. I found the extra cushioning was not something I have experienced before in a shoe and so it has been hard for me to feel like my feet are touching the ground. Not good for people with balance problems due to the extra cushioning and lack of proprioception with the ground. But comfy otherwise.
