Are you looking for a durable, comfortable and smooth trainer? GEL-Nimbus has long been an exceptional premium, neutral everyday training shoe with lots of cushioning and comfort. In recent years, it has evolved with the inclusion of lighter, softer and more sensitive midsole materials, making it ideal for beginners and dedicated marathoners.

Mass: 8.7 ounces (women’s size 7.0)

Shift between heel and toe: 13 mm (36 mm heel, 23 mm front)

Why it’s great: The GEL-Nimbus 24 is a reliable, high-volume daily exercise machine loaded with plenty of suspension and comfort, as well as sufficient stability and a little return on driving energy. This year’s edition offers a smoother, softer ride and a more cozy and comfortable fit than the previous model, plus it’s almost half an ounce lighter.

For who is it: Runners who are looking for extra cushioning or those who need a shoe for long runs that won’t bother them and yet offer some sensitive bounce.

Pros

  • The comfortable onset of a flexible, knitted tongue with wedges and a soft interior are the first signs that running in the Nimbus 24 is a great experience. From here, the soft and absorbent GEL cushioning wedge in the heel and the sensitive FF Blast + foam midsole dampen, guide and drive every foot from touch to toe.
  • There are very few shoes that run as smoothly as the Nimbus 24. It’s a durable and long-lasting hard worker, but it’s just as comfortable on long runs and tempos as on occasional recovery runs.
  • ASICS ‘3D Space Construction technology creates individualized midsole deformation at every step to provide female runners with a gender-specific ride and support for their gait pattern. What does it mean? It’s a combination of higher heel and toe height and a strategically designed 3D honeycomb feature that is cut from the top of the midsole, allowing the runner to squeeze and bend the shoe exactly as his foot rolls from heel to toe.
  • GEL-Nimbus 24 has been designed with ecological design in mind. Its soft mesh upper is made from recycled materials to reduce waste and carbon emissions, while the ASICS LITE rubber sole is lighter, stronger and more durable than standard sole materials.

Also: In February, ASICS launches the GEL-Nimbus Lite 3 ($ 160, 8.1 ounces), lightweight and extremely sensitive hybrid cousin GEL-Nimbus 24. Its flexible FlyteFoam midsole is made from organically sourced materials and creates a peppy feel that it is favorable for tempo runs, long intervals and racing. from 10K to marathon.

Disadvantages

  • There’s not much you don’t like about the GEL-Nimbus 24, except perhaps that it’s not light and agile enough for shorter, faster races or speed work on the track.
