Great shoe! Great colors! Got husband hooked on Asics 3 years ago, and bought this pair for his birthday. He loves them.

Without a doubt, the best running shoe I've had. Abundant cushioning and nice midsole support make this shoe an easy choice for any level runner. It is a neutral shoe and will make even the longest run feel shorter while eliminating foot fatigue. I am considering buying another pair just to keep in the closet for later. Buy with confidence.

First, I usually wear a 13 extra wide in any athletic shoe (especially running) and these fit spot on. Perfect. At a local running store, I had been miss-sized (diagnosed) with a shoe to correct overpronation (the Brooks Beast) and my left side and hip began to hurt. This shoe was overcorrecting a problem I don't have. Do not assume that because you are a large guy that you naturally have flat feet and overpronate. Take the "walking in a puddle of water test" and see what your arch really is and check a shoe you wear often and see where you are wearing the heel. I don't have flat feet OR overpronate so a very cushioned neutral+ shoe like the Nimbus is perfect. I will say the Nimbus-16 is incredibly awesome, even for large runner like me. Also, a lot of runners of all sizes wear the Nimbus because it is a neutral+ shoe with loads of cushioning. Perfect fit and perfect cushioning for me. Best running shoe I've ever purchased. I AM worried about the life of the sole. It seems to be wearing quickly but I just chalk it up to me being a large runner. I have two pair which I rotate, which should help.

I'd also recommend: Brooks

Great neutral running shoe with good cushioning available in Wide sizes. Not the sweetest style and not a ton of available colors but not ugly...good functional shoe for running on pavement. Fit is fantastic. I usually wear 10.5 size Adidas and 11 Nike sneakers because of my wide feet. 10.5 EE fits perfectly right. A bit pricey but you're paying for the wide size and cushioning quality. Overnight shipping with Zappos was fantastic as always.

I'd also recommend: Adidas, Brooks, New Balance

I really liked the Nimbus 15's I've had for a year now. But the cushioning has finally compressed and I need to replace for the short distance running I do. I try a ton of shoes due to my finicky sensitive and narrow feet. I tried the 16's at a local store and they seem to be another winner, but I just can't bring myself to buy these hideous fluorescent color schemes. I also don't like white as a dominant color in a shoe. Come on Asics! Some of us don't want to draw that much attention to our feet! I started to buy the titanium/black /red version but I couldn't get past the screaming lime green fluorescent sole. If it had a black sole, I'd purchase in a heartbeat. My 15's are they grey/ orange version and I put up with the orange sole for a year. I'm now done with dominant fluorescent colors. The Nimbus is by far the best running shoe I've ever tried, but until Asics starts offering them in non-flamboyant colors again they won't get my money! Thank you Zappos for your outstanding customer service and allowing the consumer to review shoes here.
