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.

Product Features

Product Features

I.G.S® (Impact Guidance System) Technology

ASICS® design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off.

FluidRide® Midsole

FluidRide® provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability.

Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning Systems

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

Guidance Trusstic System® Technology

This Trusstic System® integrates Guidance Line® construction for enhanced gait efficiency while providing midfoot structural integrity.

Guidance Line® Midsole Technology

Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.

Seamless Construction

The use of seamless materials reduces the potential for irritation and friction caused by traditional stitches and seams.

Discrete Eyelets

Independently placed eyelets disburse lace tension, creating a customized fitting environment and enhanced upper comfort.

ComforDry™ Sockliner

Removable sockliner that provides cushioning performance and moisture wicking for a cooler, dryer, healthier environment.

Shoe Care

Shoe Care

Mud and dirt can be removed using a toothbrush, warm water and gentle, anti-grease soap. Apply light pressure when brushing to avoid damaging your shoe.

Do not wash your shoes in a washing machine. To help freshen the inside of your shoe, remove the sock-liner or insole and wash it separately. Laces can be washed or replaced.

Do not place your shoes in the dryer or near direct heat. The heat will alter the shape of the shoe. Instead, stuff the inside of your shoe with paper towels or newspaper. The paper will absorb the dampness inside the shoe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits differently from previous Cumulus models I thought I was just imagining, but now I see other's comments. The toe box *is* slightly smaller than in the past and I've worn Cumulus for ever. For me this is not yet a game changer since other features are far more important to me (I have low arches with substantial underpronation--appears to be a consensus that these are the shoes), but now I wish I'd bought several pairs of 17s earlier. Please change back, or at least don't change any more!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worn down very quickly These shoes have less than 100 miles on them and they are wearing down very quickly. They have ripped by the toes and the soles on the bottom are peeling off. They were comfortable shoes but I can unfortunately no longer wear them. Over all i was very disappointed with the quality of this shoe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Small shoe in Toe bed I ordered this shoe in size 7 as I have for years. My casual size is 6.5 so the 7 has always been a good fit in a walking/running shoe in the Cumulus. I cannot believe the shoe felt snug in the toes and I returned and went back to the 2017 model. Asics needs to get the old model size back. very disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as always! I've been wearing Asics for years, and this shoe is consistent with the products I've had in the past. There was virtually no "breaking in" period--they were as comfortable on the first run as they are today. I wear a size 8 in everyday shoes, but have always ordered 8.5 for running shoes--I did they same for these shoes and they fit perfectly. The colors look great too!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More narrow toe box than cumulus 17 I have been running in the ASICs cumulus for the past three years. They have been fitting like a glove and I have loved every pair, until now. Unfortunately, the Cumulus 18 has a slightly tapered top portion of the shoe(from toe box to toe) which makes the toebox more narrow and less comfy than the previous cumulus. This is very unfortunate, and now I have to find another shoe that fits as good as the old cumulus. Very disappointed!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the same I've been wearing the GEL Cumulus series since the 14's and they have always been consistent. Bought 2 pairs of the 18's (bought the same day in different colors) and something is not right. Not sure if it's a bad batch or what but I'm underpronating now. The shoes are too narrow in the toe box and my right foot feels cramped in there. I'm back in my retired 17's until I find something that better fits my feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe I love the support in the arch and just the right amount of cushion all around. I walk between 5-7 miles a day and they've made a huge difference.
