ASICS Gel-Nimbus 21


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.

ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21 technology

  • GEL technology. When used in the heel, ASICS’ GEL technology reduces heel strike impact for easier landings. In the forefoot, GEL absorbs more shock as your foot rolls forward
  • Flytefoam Propel. ASICS’ energetic cushion formulation that mixes a unique rubber compound with foam for a bouncy ride
  • Impact Guidance System. A combination of four technical features—external heel counter, ASICS’ Guidance Line, Guidance Trussic and Dynamic Duomax—that leads to a better stride and more efficient performance
