Such a massive improvement over the Nimbus 13! The toe box is wider and roomier, plenty of room for orthotics, and super light! I've been through the progression of Nimbus models over the past 3 years, run 2 marathons and 8 half marathons, and these are the best. The 13s were so tight in the toes, they almost felt too short, but the 14s got it right! Happy running!

Minimal support. My feet burn. Laces extend too far into the toe of the shoe and shoes break across my toes. Too wide in toe area. Very uncomfortable! Bring back Nimbus 12! They were perfect.

Having a flat foot has always made finding a stable running shoe very difficult. The Asics gel nimbus give me enough support and mold to my feet perfectly. I find Asics always reliable products from the sneaker to apparel, and the sneakers always run true to size.

These do not quite have the room or cushioning that I had with previous Nimbus 12. The toe box was snug. I had to return them as they rubbed my toes. This is the first time that I was disappointed with Asics shoes.

I have worn Asics for over 15 years. I ordered the Nimbus 13 wide and it was too narrow and I had to return it so I bought the 14 hoping it would be more like the previous styles...it is not, I ordered a wide and it is still narrow in the toe box. Alas, back they go!

Love these shoes. I don't pronate or supinate my foot and I have a decent arch (not flat footed). Been running in these for several years. My teenage daughters have run cross country and track and have tried several other brands of running shoes and even a couple of other styles of Asics. One kid is flat footed and is a pronator. The other one has a morton's neuroma. They both came back to this shoe and have stuck to it. Some of you might want to look at purchasing the Powestep Protech full length orthotic support (which one of the family members got through a podiatrist for her foot issues) and then I purchased them for a couple of other family members via Amazon which was significantly cheaper and you don't need a prescription. Both the kids and the spouse use them and find them very helpful for their foot issues. You can even get metatarsal pads and out them on your foot beds/orthotic support if you have a morton's neuroma. Make sure you get the shoes with enough room in the toe box so you don't bang your toes against the front of your shoe. I wear a size 9.5 in street shoes and wear a 10.5 in running shoes.

I have high arches and have become a Gel Nimbus fan over the last several years. I especially like #14 how it fits to my heel better and broke in only after a couple of good runs. The bright colors liven up any workout!

These are potentially the best running shoes I've ever owned. After doing a little research, I made the switch from Nike running shoes, and what a great decision that turned out to be. I'm a college student and am always running around and these shoes with their gel footbeds are so comfortable. I have high arches and these shoes do a great job of supporting them. I did order a half size up, like I do with most running shoes, and it worked out great!

Actually, for me, these are more comfortable than the Cumulus. They have more soft support, more gel support. I had these on today at a running shoe store. The reason I have not ordered these is because I have previous silver Nimbus shoes and these look too similar. The other two colors will not work for me. And also, I have been wearing Cumulus shoes the majority of the time so I am quite used to them. They are fantastic shoes, though. If you want a step up from the Cumulus, these are the ones. They are for the neutral feet. They fit true to size in every way.

Brands I'd also recommend: ASICS works for me.

The Gel Nimbus is back! I had worn the 12s for months when the 13s came out. I tried them on at Dick's and they were so small that I bought 2 more pairs of 12s on Zappos! I held off until the 14s came out and I couldn't resist. They are simply the most comfortable shoes and I can run 6 miles out of the box without a blister or pain anywhere from poorly fitting shoes. I am so happy! Worth every penny for this runner!

I've gotten these shoes for years, but on this pair the toe box is noticeably smaller and the material seems a bit flimsy. If you plan to get them, order a size larger than your normal. I'm sending mine back.

Brands I'd also recommend: I ordered 3 pr of Brooks but too short & too wide.

I absolutely love my shoes! I have touchy, sensitive feet that need serious arch support, and Asics are the only shoes that I can wear out of the box without messing around with inserts or arch supports or having to buy a half-size larger to accommodate that stuff. They are comfortable and they gently correct my habit of pronating and they are pretty! What is not to like?

Brands I'd also recommend: Saucony

Love Zappos, always super fast delivery. The shoe is brighter than the picture. I ordered the shoe a size bigger. I got this shoe for a walking shoe after surgery and to help with recovery. This shoe provides the support I need and the cushion I deserve. Have not been able to do any long distance in them yet. However, they feel great right out of the box and I can see no problem with them.

I have never owned sneakers this comfortable. The insole feels like you are walking on gel. The size is true to fit but because I need some room in my workout shoes, I purchased a half size bigger.

I ordered these because I have knee weakness. They are supportive, and comfortable. They were recommended by someone on the Today Show, and she was so right! They are most supportive tennis shoes I have ever worn.
