New for 2013, Asics introduces the black and red limited edition colorway. The Nimbus 14 is slightly lighter and more breathable than the Nimbus 13. The Asics Gel Nimbus 14 is the flagship running shoe in Asics cushioning category. This shoe offers the lightweight stability of the Trusstic System® which reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe. This longtime favorite is built on a wide platform, making for exceptional comfort and stability. Features enhanced upper fit with Asics proprietary asymmetrical lacing design, while cozy Solyte Midsole material provides a plush road feel.
The Asics Gel Nimbus is a cushioned/neutral shoe. Cushioned/neutral shoes are for those that have high or normal arches. These shoes are able to handle long runs and protect the joints but don't have the extra medial support that efficient runners don't need.
Midwest Sports only ships Asics products to domestic addresses in the U.S. and U.S. Territories.
Impact guidance system that enhances the foots natural gait from heel strike to toe-off.
Biomorphic Fit Upper Stretch material strategically placed on the upper helps to reduce buckling and the potential for irritation.
Asymmetrical lacing design that enhances upper fit and comfort while minimizing the potential for irritation.
DuraSponge outsole for superior durability and cushioning with less weight.
Solyte midsole material that is lighter than Asics standard EVA and SpEVA, combined with improved cushioning and durability.
ComforDry sockliner that provides optimal cushioning performance in a cooler, drier, healthier environment.
These shoes have good support in the heal but they are a bit too tight so I had to send them back. I have a lot of Asics but this pair was not for me.
5 StarsExceptional quality

I run approx. 25 miles/week and this pair of shoes is the best I ever had. Many brands and models, including nimbus 13. Nimbus 14 is something special.

I love this shoe after my local shoe sales man introduced them to me! They give the arch support I need and I am flat footed. I now have three pair of Nimbus Asics and they are well worth it!!!
5 StarsGreat shoe

This is my third pair of the gel nimbus series. Comfortable shoe, although feels a little heavy if you're used to more minimilast shoes. The red and black version look sharp as well. Always a plus.
