 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

Asics Gel Nimbus 14


RELEASE DATE:

  •   September 2012

 

Asics’s premium neutral running shoe in its 14th year.   This shoe stills feels reassuringly expensive and plush, with great attention to detail and materials.   There are changes to the outsole construction resulting in a slightly firmer ride than its predecessor, and updates on the upper results in improved ventilation.

While the Nimbus could do better in some areas, the overall lightweight Nimbus 14 is a worthy successor to the series and it is aimed to please neutral runners and mild pronators with its cushioned, yet stable ride.

The Gel-Nimbus 14 is a maximum feature, moderate neutral running shoe designed for daily training and high mileage.

These shoes felt good for mid to long range training runs.    Also, I used them for runs up to 20 miles which the shoe felt sturdy and my feet felt  cushioned and sturdy.
