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.

Shoe Technologies:

  • ComforDry™ X-40 Sockliner
  • Discrete Eyelets
  • Discrete Heel Unit
  • FluidFit® Upper
  • FluidRide® Midsole
  • Gender-Specific Cushioning
  • Guidance Line® Midsole Technology
  • Guidance Trusstic System® Technology
  • Heel Clutching System™ Technology
  • I.G.S® Technology (Running)
  • Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning Systems
  • Seamless Construction


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 4 out of 5 by from Love them but run small I've been wearing the nimbus for years and LOVE them. I'm usually fine wearing one full size larger than my shoe size. For some reason, the 18's seem to have less room in the toe area and I keep getting blisters on my toes. My usual 8 1/2 is too small. I could use the 9. So, if you're used to a certain fit in the prior versions of Nimbus I'd be aware that they do seem to be smaller in the toe box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing As a marathoner I have always chosen asics to be my favourite pair of runners. I couldn't imagine changing brands of shoes. Customer service person I spoke too in regards to not receiving my shoes yet they were extremely helpful it's always great to have someone that knows their job thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cushion I knew from the minute I put on this shoe that it was good; I just wish I would have gotten 1/2 size up. I based my order based on my previous Gel-Nimbus 17. The 18 is shorter and not as "stretchable" or "flexible"; it's the material. But it's not the shoe, it's the size.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay with the 17's! I bought these as I had been wearing the Gel Nimbus 17's. I've given them a really good go over a few months (approx. 200km in total) but I can't stand them. My legs hurt and feel heavy and I just feel so slow. Visited an outlet store and bought another pair of 17's and I'm back to normal after 2 weeks. I love Asics don't get me wrong and will continue to buy them but I would give these a miss. Probably a great shoe if you are a walker or are just looking for something for day to day wear as they are quite comfortable. I would not recommend if you are a runner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Asics! I stand on my feet all day and ASICS meet my needs to be comfortable all day! I also love that they have a few fun colors to pick from along with the basics. This was my first purchase online from the ASICS store and I will do it again, 1) there was no shipping or taxes and 2) they give back to the community by shipping in a box that is reuseable! Fill the box with items to give to the GoodWill, print a label, and ship it....nice job ASICS!
