Love these shoes! Love the comfort and the style!
This is my FAVORITE shoe. I had never worn the Nimbus before, but when I tried on this update I knew I HAD to have them. They hug my arch, they're soft and squishy, but you don't sacrifice weight-these shoes are still super lightweight. I typically like shoes that are lightweight and firm, but wanted a more cushioned shoe for my easy and long runs. This shoe is soft, but not too soft, and still feels responsive - I could happily do a speed work out in them. I've started wearing them every day for every run! And the colors are so fun! I am always and 8.5 and the 8.5 in the Nimbus 23 fits me perfectly.
As a runner with a wider foot, I've not worn many Asics shoes as I tend to find them a little snug. The Gel Nimbus 23 was surprising roomy and I had no issues at all with the toebox. The upper was very light and breathable and I love that Asics is using a significant percentage of recycled materials in the Gel Nimbus 23 as well as some of their other recent releases. The midsole cushioning felt soft and protective underfoot, and I felt that I could run long miles comfortably. A great addition to your training rotation!
I was not expecting to enjoy these shoes as much as I have. They provide a certain foot security I have found to be unmatched by any other model, as well as an increased cushioning at no expense to their responsiveness. I use them as an everyday trainer, and have thus far run some of my fastest miles in them. And, while I may have at first pronounced them "unspeakably ****" with a design "evocative of a 90s roller rink", I have since grown rather fond of the blue and purple artistry that adorns the exterior of these sneakers. As someone new to Asics, I have been thoroughly impressed.
I love the Nimbus 23. I am amazed at how light they are for a high cushion sneaker (unprecedented) and the energy return is amazing. I feel like I'm bouncing when I run in them and they're both pushing me to be faster, and protecting me from injury with all the impact absorption that comes from a high cushion shoe. 10/10 recommend.
