[Looking for the latest version? The women's ASICS Gel-Nimbus Lite 3 is now available.]

The women's ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite 2 gives you lightweight cushion for miles and miles of comfort.

ASICS packed the Nimbus Lite 2 full of FlyteFoam cushioning technology for a soft and bouncy ride. For an even softer landing, designers included ASICS’ signature GEL technology in the heel and forefoot.

Much of the mesh upper is made with recycled materials, which diverts waste from landfills while maintaining the breathable performance you demand from your shoes.

Love these Asics Gel-Nimbus Lite 2 running shoes. They are a true comfortable fit. I did not have to break them in. They give the support and comfort all in one. And they are really designed beautifully.

This is my first pair of ASICS and I love them. I use these shoes for my longer 6+ mile runs. I would highly recommend them to these shoes to my friends and family.

Comfortable but Bulky

Nicole 2 years ago Verified Purchase

These shoes are extremely comfortable. They are lite weight and provide a lot of cushion. I use for everyday wear and they help my feet to ache much less at the end of the day. I do wish that they were not quite so bulky. The sole sticks out about an inch past the back of the shoe and took quite a bit to get used to.

Comfortable shoe

Wore my ASICS Gel- Nimbus Lite shoes for first time in a Zumba class ... Not real sure they are the best shoe for a lot of quick lateral dance moves.....BUT then wore them on several walks and jogs with my dog and WOW!!!!! Love them. So comfortable and cushioned and this will be my go- to shoe for jogging and walking. Love them !!!

My new favorite running shoes!

I LOVE these! At first they felt a lot more spacious than I'm used to so I actually ordered another half size smaller to compare. But I quickly realized that my normal size was the right size they just have a little more room in the toe box which I now love! My feet are so happy in them on my runs and I will definitely be ordering more!
