These shoes have been great. I have been wearing the ASICS Kayano for several years and decided to try a more neutral shoe, it has been a great transition. My feet measure at a size 11 and I typically wear a size 12 in most of my regular shoes. I ended up with a size 12.5 in the Nimbus 15 for the extra room.

I'm very happy with this shoe. It's got decent arch support and the cushioning is excellent. I used to run in the Brooks Beast, and this shoe is a lot better.

I'm an underpronator and it's always a little more difficult to find shoes. This is now my second pair of Nimbus shoes and I love them! Have tried Brooks and Saucony but these are the ones for me. Won't ever change again!

I've had several pair of running shoes. Asics has consistently been my favorite brand (I've tried almost every other). The Gel Nimbus 12 were far any away my favorites purchased in 2010. However when I upgraded to the Nimbus 14 I was disappointed. They were comfortable to wear, but not for running. I think it lacked impact cushioning. The Nimbus 15 is a tremendous improvement over the 14 and a nice upgrade from the 12. I am very pleased and I expect this will be my shoe for the next several hundred miles.

Absolutely leave these sneakers. I'm a gym rat and bought the orange and grey ones as well. I go 4 miles a day on the elliptical and crosstrainer and my feet feel great. So much better than the Nike airs I was buying before these. Plus I get compliments on them all the time. They look great as well as feel great.
