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.

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!

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

I am very disappointed with this shoes. I have worn Asics for as long as I can remember and this style...where's the gel? Ran in them 4 times and my knees were so sore. went back to my old Asics until I can find another brand that is cushioning.

Best fitting shoe, true to size, wonderful support and cushion, well worth the money! I wear an 11 narrow, this size is hard to find- this shoe felt like it was made for my feet. I love Asics and don't plan on ever changing. I have not had one songle incident with knees etc since changing to Asics.
