Asics gel nimbus 20 shoe

Long distance runners are always looking for new and better ways to support our arch and keep our feet happy!

ASICS is celebrating twenty years of their GEL-NIMBUS ® series!

To kick off the shoe celebration ASIS is launching a new edition of its most popular long-distance shoe, the GEL-NIMBUS 20 model.  

The lightest model in GEL-NIMBUS history, the GEL-NIMBUS 20 is made for runners of all levels—from beginner to advanced.

ASIS says that the new GEL-NIMBUS 20 model is designed to help all runners enhance their performance with cushioning and lightweight comfort.

Built for runners of every stride, the GEL-NIMBUS 20 model features new Gradient Jacquard Mesh structure, designed with strategic 3D printed overlays that seamlessly wrap and support the foot with each step. The new feature on the upper also provides a great fit and breathability.

The GEL-NIMBUS 20 shoe retails for $160 and will be available December 1st at ASICS and specialty run stores as well as online at asicsamerica.com.

"The GEL-NIMBUS is a shoe with nearly 20 years of history, and there's a very good reason for this—since its debut in 1999, the GEL-NIMBUS has managed to deliver against runners' highest expectations and help them achieve their personal bests," said Gerard Klein, Senior General Manger, Global Performance Running, Footwear, ASICS Corporation. 

"The GEL-NIMBUS has always been designed to offer runners superior cushioning without excess weight. In fact, Nimbus means "cloud" in Latin and our goal with the GEL-NIMBUS is to literally make runners feel so light and comfortable, it's almost like they're running on a cloud. Every year ASICS raises its aspirations even higher, and we will continue to innovate and develop the GEL-NIMBUS series," Klein stated. 

Stay tuned for our detailed runner's review of the new edition!
