When designing the GEL-Nimbus® 17, ASICS opted for a little more revolution than evolution. Serious weight reduction takes center stage, with a nearly seamless Fluid Fit® upper that fits and feels like a runner’s dream. The new FluidRideTM midsole and extended Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning system improve upon the already famously plush and luxurious rid. Nothing but the best would do underfoot, thus a new top-of-the-line ComforDryTM X-40 sockliner sits atop a new full-length ComforDryTM lasting for the ultimate in cushioning and comfort. Has the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Seal of Acceptance. 23mm heel, 13 mm forefoot.

WHAT A SHOE! I have had continuous knee pain for several months during my runs. I went to a Virginia Runner and picked a pair of these up just after they were delivered. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! At first, I didn’t know what to make of the extraordinary cushioning because it is certainly not as dense and hard as a typical running shoe but they guaranteed the shoe for 30 days, regardless of condition for 30 days, so I gave them a shot. My first run was a 1/2 mile warm up and I followed it with 8×1/4 mile sprint intervals. I finished that run with no knee pain or back pain and they were as comfortable as can be! They are all heat bonded so there are not any friction points like on some of the other shoes. I might have just become a convert from Brooks because of this shoe. It is a neutral shoe, so don’t expect any correction for under or overpronation.

If you like comfortable, durable shoes, Nimbus 17 are the Gold Standard These shoes are amazing. I don’t give 5 stars lightly, great products get 4 stars, but I save 5 star rating for products that go above and beyond, that really blow me away and these shoes get a full 5 BIG shiny stars in my book.

The Japanese created a shoe that feels like you are really running on a cloud, the Nimbus 17, Bravo! A whole new experience in light weight seamless running cushion. Asics did a great Nimbus 15, then a very disappointing, hard and heavy Nimbus 16, and now a spectacular Nimbus 17.Just ran in the rain and the shoe gripped perfectly, with super cushion like it was part of my foot, not a shoe.
