RELEASE DATE:

Treat yourself to an ultra-smooth and cushioned ride with the Asics Gel Nimbus 15.   There is plenty of protective Gel under both the forefoot and heel, this neutral trainer will guard you from hard impact with the ground.   A flexible platform ensures an effortless transition from heel to toe, and there is a plush upper that wraps around your foot for a personalized fit and long lasting comfort.

The Gel Nimbus 15 is a maximum feature, moderate neutral shoe designed for daily training and high mileage.  I offers optimal cushioning, secure stablility, and an improved upper,.   The ASICSĀ® Gel-Nimbus 15 satisfies the needs of runners ranging from the underpronator to the moderate overpronator.

Combining the shoes multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements, the FluidFit adapts to your foot, creating a glove-like fit.   The FluidRide midsole blends bounce-back abilites, soft cushioning, and lightweight durability, and it helps create a soft long-lasting step.

Working together for enhanced gait efficiency, the Guidance Trusstic System and Impact Guidance System (IGS) enhances the feet natural gait from heel to toe transitions for superior performance.   The IGS system helps provide a smooth, efficient running motion.   The improved cushioning and added anti-microbial properties, the ComforDry sockliner keeps your feet cool, dry, and fresher.

Consisting of an exoskeletal heel counter, ASICS' Heel Clutching System teams with Personal Heel Fit technology, two layers of memory foam, to improve support, comfort, and fit.    This ensures your foot remains snug and centered during your best running activities.   The High Abrasion Rubber (HAR) outsole provides long-lasting durability and terrain grip traction, allowing you to venture and run on varied trail terrains.

These shoes felt good for mid to long range training runs.  I used them for long runs which the shoe felt solid,  sturdy and my feet felt very comfortable and very cushioned.
