Read our review of the ASICS Gel-Nimbus 26


Soft as a marshmallow, the ASICS Gel-Nimbus™ 26 will give you a luxurious and plush experience every step of the way.

Whether you’re walking, running or working all day the Gel-Nimbus 26 will get you excited to lace up your sneakers. One of the best cushioned running shoes, you will feel like you're floating on the pavement as you workout. One runner even stated, “From the cushioning in the heel collar to the whole underfoot feel, it’s soft, soft, soft. When I run in these, I feel protected from the impact of the road since there’s such a tall stack of plush cushion,” in our ASICS Gel-Nimbus 26 review. Plus, they are pretty darn stylish too.


  • Upper: A lightweight engineered knit upper gives you plenty of breathability, style and comfort. There is a new and improved midfoot hold to create a more supportive fit. ASICS updated the knit collar construction which improved the fit and feel and made it easier to put on as well.
  • Midsole: The FF Blast™ Plus Eco is a light and energetic foam that provides you with a soft and plush ride. There is Puregel™ at the heel which provides additional cushioning, is lighter weight and is 65% softer than conventional visible GEL™ technology. It also has 24% bio content to make its construction sustainable.
  • Outsole: A new hybrid outsole combines ASICSGRIP™ and AHAR™ outsole rubbers to give you better traction and improved softness, while still being durable enough to keep up with your miles.

I really want to love these walking on a cloud shoes but unfortunately I'm afraid that the toe box is not high enough and my toe hurts after wearing them around the house. Probably going to need to bring them back...
