Women's Shoes Neutral Running ASICS ASICS GEL-Nimbus

ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite


[Looking for the newest model? Check out the ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite 2]

The women's ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite is built to be light on your feet—and the planet.

ASICS engineered the Nimbus Lite’s upper from recycled plastic, which creates a soft and smooth mesh that also diverts waste from landfills.

A new full-length FlyteFoam midsole cushions the shoe with the help of a byproduct of sugarcane processing called cellulose nanofiber. When worked into the foam, the nanofiber creates a soft, durable ride for hundreds of miles of smooth running.

In the ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite review, Fleet Feet testers loved the plush and lightweight ride provided by the FlyteFoam midsole.

With ASICS GEL technology in the heel and forefoot for a touch of extra cushion, the women's ASICS GEL-Nimbus Lite delivers big comfort with a little footprint.

Great shoes

I love these shoes! They are light but well cushioned. The upper felt a little tight at first but then loosened up after a few runs. I hope ASICS continues to make the lite version of the Nimbus because this is great shoe for me!
