Another pair of great running shoes presented by ASICS meets the ASICS Gel Nimbus 17. If you already love the ASICS or the Nimbus, you’ll be happy to hear that the 17th version of the Nimbus line has cushioning upgraded.
Just like in the recent other models from ASICS, Nimbus 17 has several upgrades worth noticing. So, let’s start peeking at the features of Nimbus 17.
Features of ASICS Gel Nimbus 17
If you are a runner training for a half or full marathon, you’d find that the ASICS Gel Nimbus 17 is perfect to support your needs. ASICS Gel Nimbus 17 has dimensions of 12 x 8 x 4 inches and weighs 10.8 Oz. They are designed with FluidFit upper, which functions in preventing blisters, and a new FluidRife midsole and extended Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL cushioning, which reduces the shock in impact and toe-off phases. The shoes are also crafted for a range of running gaits.
Thanks to the support from ComforDry X-40 Sockliner and Guidance Trust System, the shoes are perfect in assisting under pronators. The heel counter features work in keeping the heel centered and in place, which adds to the shoes’ guidance systems.
Nimbus 17 centers in your midfoot, helping enhance natural gait movement when worn.
Who’s ASICS Gel Nimbus 17 suitable for?
The Gel Nimbus 17 is suitable for those who run with a more neutral stride. Yes, it isn’t much to call Nimbus 17 as neutral shoes since the shoes increase comfort and running efficiency at the same time. Having such great cushioning system, Nimbus 17 also leans more towards heavy runners. I try to running with Asics men’s gel nimbus 17. This type of runners needs to wear running shoes with more cushion in order to protect their feet. Heavy runners create more force while running, and if the shoes aren’t good, they may cause damage to the runners’ feet and joints.
The added cushion in Nimbus 17 clearly makes the shoes support for the comfortable run.
ASICS like to make shoes with loud colors these days, and the same bright flashy colors are also found in Nimbus 17. For those who like to run in flashy color shoes, then Nimbus 17 will suit your taste.
Still, for those who care about the performance more than the appearance, they can choose the more base colors such as dark gray or red version of Nimbus 17.
Whichever your choice of color is, ASICS Gel Nimbus 17 will be your trusted partner in your long runs.
