This is my 5th pair of gel nimbuses, and is great for running. I like the stability because this Is what the shoe is known for.

I have used the nimbus for almost 10 years. I tried a different shoe about a year ago and fell into knee problems. After a 6 month layoff I bought a pair of nimbus 16 and this is by far the best fitting and best cushioned shoe I have worn. I am 20 lbs. overweight and the shoe has enough cushion to handle it.
