    Like Running on Clouds

    By Anonymous

    Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoes:

    Have waited after my 250th mile in this shoe to write a review for the durability portion and am pleased to say that the durability of the shoe is excellent. Handles trails fairly well, abnormally cushioned from the forefoot to heel( for first time Asics users it feels similar to a Brooks Glycerine or Nike Vomero just with more cushion), love the upper fit compared to the 15's, and, although it's 11.4 ounces, it really doesn't feel heavier than 10.7 to 11 ounces and of course you must realize to have super plush cushion you generally have to sacrifice weight. The only problem I have with this model is the toe box is rather wide and for some that's a good thing but I have a rather narrow forefoot. Overall excellent shoe for long miles!

    Best shoes for my feet

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoes:

    I walk on the sides of my feet, so these shoes really help with that. They have plenty of cushion which I liked because I weigh about 245 pounds. I don't run anymore but I do walk and they're great for that. I've had the Nimbus 12's 13's 14's 15's and the 16's, but I don't like the new look of the 17's. Its a shame they have to change a good looking shoe to what they have in the Nimbus 17's!

      Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoes:

      I run regularly, year round in Minnesota, outside spring through fall and on a treadmill during the winter. I have wide feet and these fit great. I have feet issues and these are the only shoes I can run in on a treadmill or road/paved surface without pain. I use them for trail running as well, although they do not have the proper traction for that so I have to be extra careful. I have tried other running and trail shoes since getting my first pair of Nimbus over two years ago but ended up returning them. For me, the best thing about these shoes is the amount of cushion coupled with the amount of support and also the wide variety of color options. I just saw the Nimbus 17 colors and I am jealous! I am a woman but wear the men's because I like the colors better.

        Great shoe....excellent cushioning. I am a bigger runner (6'2", 205 lbs.) and these shoes provide a great ride.....only con is that they are a little heavy--may get another shoe for races, but these are top-notch training shoes. I underpronate, and these shoes are perfect for my gait as well. Great value as well.....

          Great cushioning, but a bit heavy

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoes:

          i'm 5"7, 150lbs with wide feet. When i first used the Nimbus 16, i immediately felt that it was different from the other shoes that i've been using (NB660, Kayano 19, NB1080, Kwicky Blade). The Nimbus 16 is very comfortable, i literally can "feel" the comfort and benefit of the Asics' "Gel". The fit is very good - it hugged my wide feet and it felt really secure, but not tight. It was heavier, and had to train in them because of the higher "drop". I sometimes complain about the weight of the Nimbus, but i guess i got used to it. Just finished my 3rd marathon using the Nimbus 16 - no injuries because of its superior cushioning, had my best time as well because my feet felt great in them. Other than the weight concern, they're really great - but expensive :)

            Best shoes I have ever bought!

            By Anonymous

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoes:

            I use to be a Nike guy I would run a lot in Nike shox, don't get me wrong they're pretty comfortable. I had had those shoes for about a year when the bottoms fell off and holes started to form by the toes. I was about to order another pair of shox when my friend had got these he told me that they were the most comfortable shoes he had ever had. I really didn't think much of that but then I thought so I bought a pair. All I can say is he wasn't lying they are the best shoes I have ever owned and in future I plan on buying more of this brand. I've only had them for a week and they are the best. I would recommend this to anyone.
