I love these shoes. I used to be loyal to Asics Gel-Cirrus33 but bought these since they were discontinued. They are super comfy and provide great support for my flat feet!

I'm an avid wearer of Nimbus since the 12s. I loved the 12s with the cushion and asymmetric lacing, but needed some more structure. The 13s had the structure, but not as cushy. The 14s were totally flat and were unwearable. The Nimbus 15s are by far my favorite with the pillowy entry, cushion, weight and durability. So, now the Nimbus 16..they are more structured across the top of the foot, but the cushion of the 15s are gone. Also, the sole/heel has changed so, it feels as though there's a heel cup. After only 2 runs, I started getting discomfort in my heel...so, back they go and I'm on the hunt for more 15s. Asics...keep the good cushion and sole of the 15s...why change a great thing!

I'm a runner & fitness instructor. I have been wearing Asics Gel Nimbus for years. I buy a new pair every year. These shoes have no cushion at all! My worn ones are more comfortable! What happened Asics, trying to cut cost!? Very disappointed!

I really wanted to like these. Really. But I got them and another pair of another brand and these were not wide enough. They had to go back. I was sad. The look of these looked so much better than the ones that properly fit my feet. Unfortunately, I have to go with fit over fashion. I have wide feet, I hate that and lately, Asics hasn't been offering the double wide that they used to offer on here, why is that? Anyway, I'm sad to have to send these back because they visually looked better than the shoes that fit me better.

These shoes are the best! I am a larger woman and I walk about 25 miles per week. I had a pair of New Balance but when I reordered them 1 year later they were not the same. So I tried Asics GEL-Nimbus 16. They were like walking on a cloud. I am so glad I found them and I highly recommend them.

I'd also recommend: Brooks
