These shoes are unbelievable. The gel makes you feel like you can walk forever. Didn't know how much difference the gel would make. I was able to put them on and start walking. There was no break in period. I usually wear a 9, but got a 9 1/2 and the fit is perfect.

A few years ago I switched from another brand to Asics. I've never looked back. My girlfriend also endorsed Asics and persuaded me to the Nimbus16. She had one of the older versions. After trying them out I called her and said order these! She did and loves them also.

I'd also recommend: If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

I absolutely love the Asics Gel Nimbus 16 shoes! I have been buying Asics running shoes for many years. I used to wear the GT 2000s and then the Gel Kayanos, which are both fantastic shoes. Recently, a bone spur developed on my fourth metatarsal, due to a foot problem that I was born with. It was in dealing with my foot issue that I discovered the Gel Nimbus has a touch wider outside edge which helps to support my foot. I think the cushioning is awesome. They were comfortable from the moment I out them on. I absolutely love these shoes. I could not be more pleased. I have already ordered two more pairs: one in the same color I ordered originally and a second pair in another color!

I have been ordering the Gel Nimbus shoes for years and was disappointed that the style has changed enough that they don't fit. There is a bar across the top front that doesn't allow that area to stretch so I couldn't even get my foot all the way in the shoe

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.
