                    Comfortable shoe that can be used for everyday use or for walking or jogging. This is my second pair that I plan switch out. Looking forward to the new version coming out this Spring...

                        Best service ever my shoes size was not in the store so my sales clerk helped to order them and have them sent to my home without paying for shipping. I so have enjoyed my runs in the morning in my new Numbus 16 Running shoes they feel so comfortable since receiving them last week.

                        Thank you again for great service!

                            I'm prone to plantar fasciitis and the Asics Gel Nimbus have been my shoes for at least 6 years. I walk/jog daily between 2 and 6 miles. I've tried others and none were better for me. This version is just as good as the last. Gel Nimbus and stretching keep my feet pain-free.

                                  These shoes are really uncomfortable; nothing like the 15s. The sizing was a mess as well; I ordered three different pair and none of them really fit well - one of them was a mens version - and it was equally uncomfortable. My regular size was too short and narrow. Experienced heel and hip pain during and after a run; not really willing to try out the next version of these.

                                  Inconsistent fit, lacks cushion of the 15

                                  I had a pair of 9s years ago and they were good. Got back in at the 14 which was okay for short runs but did not love them for long runs. Then along came the 15 and I was in love. These were the only shoe that did not leave me with achilles, toe or forefoot issues (except for a blister when I upsized a half size per the retailer.) Ran two halfs in these. Then I could not find more 15s and upgraded to the 16 which was a complete downgrade. I have run 15 miles in them (2 runs) and had toe numbness, then shooting pains, the forefoot feeling like it was on fire, achilles flareups at the 5 mile mark. The forefoot cushioning from the 15 is gone. The sizes are off. I had a 10 in the 15 and definitely needed a half size bigger in these. The toe box seems narrower than its predecessor. Radically changing shoes is what made me ditch other brands. Bring back the 15 which had nothing wrong with it.

                                  I know I am repeating what some other reviews have already stated-however i do want to make sure everyone who is thinking about purchasing this shoe is VeRY aware that the sizes are completely inconsistent depending on where this shoe was manufactured. I have been an avid fan of the Nimbus for years. After dealing with buying and returning several pairs (8.5 felt like a 6, 9 felt like a 10) I grew frustrated and switched to Brooks. I do think the old nimbus are better than Brooks, however I cannot believe ASICS would allow such variation in sizes, leading to fit/purchase disasters. Nobody has time for that!
