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'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 am a 57 year old - the stages of flat feet are slowly approaching according to my podiatrist. It's hereditary. The doctor told me these shoes would be best for my feet. She was right! They feel amazing and I work out without pain or expensive arch supports. I like them so much I ordered 2 pairs! Amazing shoes!

Awesome shoe! I've been wearing Nimbus for a few years now. Love them! Also, love the colors in this particular one! It looks even better in person! Also, Zappos is the fastest shipping company around. Ordered this pair at 4:30 one evening and had it by 10am in the next day.

This is my third pair of Asics Gel-Nimbus shoes and I still love them! i have high arches and need to wear custom insoles for extra support, and there's plenty of room for those. Also need a shoe that is pretty stable in the forefoot to protect my toes from too much bending, these do that as well. I put in 40 miles a week walking on a firm sandy beach and they were comfortable every mile!

For athletic shoes, I normally wear 7.5 medium, but for this Asics, I had to order 8 wide. I've heard Asics shoes not made in China seem to have different sizing. This Asics was made in Indonesia. I first ordered 7.5 wide, but it was still too small. I exchanged it with 8 wide, and it fits well.
