Product Details

Product Details

The GEL-Nimbus 18 is a comfortable and extremely well cushioned shoe for neutral runners, and those with rigid foot types. This model incorporates Convergence GEL, an improved GEL that sits closer to the foot and increases cushioning and shock attenuation, while the inclusion of an engineered / jacquard mesh upper reduces seams and material overlays, improving comfort and fit.

Product Features

Product Features

Fluid Fit

A technical mesh material that stretches in multiple directions, creating a glove, “snug like” fit that provides a unique balance of comfort and fit


ASICS High Abrasion Resistant rubber on the outersole. Helps cut down on excessive wear

AHAR Ride+

AHAR Ride+ is an advanced outsole material with virtually the same lightness and grip properties as ASICS’ conventional rubber, with the advantage of being three times more durable.

Gender Specific Cushioning

Separate piece of material that is in the forefoot of the midsole. The womens piece is softer compared to mens, allowing the lighter frame of women to feel cushioning available in forefoot


3mm of additional midsole height at heel on womens models helps relieve strain on achilles tendon to improve comfort

Removable Sockliner

An EVA or SpEVA sockliner moulded to the shape of the foot, which can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic

Fluid Ride

A two layered midsole that provides the ultimate in “bounce back” & cushioning characteristics. While also lightweight, it is great for runners who compress the midsole

Guidance Line

Longitudinal groove that decouples tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency

Guidance Trusstic

This new Trusstic System integrates Guidance Line construction providing enhanced gait efficiency and structural integrity to the midfoot.

3M Reflectivity

Special reflective material which enhances visibility in poor light. 3m Scotchlite is a registered trademark of the 3M Company

Rearfoot & Forefoot GEL Cushioning

Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.



Severe Over
Pronation is how a runner's foot rolls medially between footfall and toe-off. Underpronation is when the foot rolls outwards, overpronation is when it rolls inwards, and a neutral pattern is when little rolling occurs.

Matching a shoe's properties with the runner's running style will increase comfort, running efficiency, and contribute to decreasing the risk of injury.

Shoe Care

Shoe Care

Surface dirt such as mud and grit can be cleaned off with an old toothbrush or nail brush, a little warm water and a gentle anti-grease soap. This should take care of the dirt, and is fine to do once in a while.

Don't wash your shoes in a washing machine. Remove the sock-liner or insole and wash it separately. This will help make the inside of your shoe fresher. Laces can be washed or replaced.
Don't place them near a heating device such as a heater or radiator. Direct heat will alter the shape of the shoe. Open out the shoe and then stuff the inside with kitchen paper or newspaper. The paper will absorb the dampness inside the shoe. A shoe takes about twelve hours to dry out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so pleased to find wide I'm a walker not a runner but these are worth every penny. I'm 69 and have 2 knee and 1 hip joint replacement. I need comfort and stability. Found it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most impressed I bought this shoe on the advice of my orthopedic surgeon. I have worn ASICS for years. Based on descriptions and the two reviews on this site, I thought I wanted the Cumulus but the shoe fitter (salesmen cheapens the service I got) convinced me to try this shoe. It is perfect. Other may not life it but I knew when I tried it on it was perfect for me. I have narrow fit with high arches and a tendency for plantar fasciitis. This shoe made my foot feel comfortable and well supported.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Bought the wide version of these shoes (Nimbus 18D), and they are painfully narrow, had to take them off immediately. Wasn't an issue with the same size of the Nimbus 17Ds. Such a disappointment, don't know where to go now for my wide runners. Also didn't like the color option, but always willing to sacrifice that for a shoe that feels good.
