Women's | ASICS Gel-Nimbus 21

Description

Get your head out of the clouds, and put your feet there instead.

Now in its 21st year, ASICS revised the fit of its popular GEL-Nimbus running shoe to accommodate more foot shapes. The premium engineered mesh upper adapts to the movement of a runner’s foot to provide a more comfortable ride while giving additional room in the forefoot.

Designers pumped the latest Nimbus full of Flytefoam Propel to cushion each step. The lightweight foam-and-rubber formulation delivers high energy return for increased bounce and better performance. Under the heel is ASICS’ iconic GEL technology that reduces impact and allows for a smooth transition forward.

In the Fleet Feet ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21 review, testers found the cushioning made the shoe ideal for long distances.

The ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21 continues the legacy of the burly running shoe that will carry you for as many miles as you want to go.
