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 Details

Product Details

When designing the new GEL-Nimbus® 17, ASICS opted for a little more revolution than evolution. Serious weight reduction takes center stage, with a nearly seamless FluidFit® upper that fits and feels like a runner’s dream. The new FluidRide® midsole and extended Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning Systems improve upon the already famously plush and luxurious ride. Nothing but the best would do underfoot, thus a new top-of-the-line ComforDry™ X-40 Sockliner sits atop new full-length ComforDry™ lasting for the ultimate in cushioning and comfort. Weight: 8.8 oz. Heel Height: 25mm. Forefoot Height: 12mm.
Product Features

Product Features

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.

FluidFit® Upper

ASICS FluidFit® upper technology combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapt to the athlete's foot, creating a truly customized glove-like fit.

Heel Clutching System™ Technology

Exoskeletal heel counter provides improved support and creates improved heel fitting environment.

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.

Guidance Line® Midsole Technology

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

Guidance Trusstic System® Technology

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

ComforDry™ Lasting

This lasting material features plush underfoot comfort while providing excellent moisture management and a high level of breathability.

ComforDry™ X-40 Sockliner

This premium sockliner features higher rebound properties while providing excellent moisture management and a high-level of breathability.

Gender-Specific Cushioning

Women's models feature a lower-density top layer in the midsole, allowing female athletes to better enjoy the benefits of midsole compression.

Plus 3® Midsole Technology

3mm of additional height on women's models helps relieve achilles tension.

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 3 out of 5 by from Materials wear quickly My complaint about these shoes is that my big toe has worn a hole in the mesh the shoe should have a more durable material where the toes are and they are kinda ugly the color of blue looks a lot better online and it's a very bright orange blue combo they look more like mens shoes I was going to send them back but tried them on anyways and have to say they are comfortable but won't buy them again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the cushioning of the Nimbus 17! This is my second pair of this color combination of the Nimbus 17. They have a roomy toe box and have awesome cushioning. After about 400 miles, the first pair's cushioning in the forefoot began to really break down so I knew it was time for a new pair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the GEL NIMBUS 15 The GEL NIMBUS 15 was a fabulous shoe that lasts miles and miles for runners. The current Nimbus 17 and 18 models are more light, tighter in fit and FAR less durable. ASICS: Please tell your design team and execs. to reconsider your client base: many of your clients are serious RUNNERS who need the durability of the NIMBUS 15. ALSO the colors were WAY better. Why not make a runners' line that showcases the NIMBUS 15: one of your best ideas ever? The GEL 17 and 18 may be okay for narrow-footed walkers, but not runners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than 18s I bought a pair of the newer GEL Nimbus 18s and found them to be too snug in the toe box and a bit shorter than the 17s. I have been so pleased with several pairs of the 17s that I immediately bought several more 17s in anticipation of their discontinuance. I have a history of plantar fasciitis and the GEL Nimbus 17s have been a God send! Good support. I am a distance walker. Generally, I walk about 7 miles/day. That said, my only slight complaint would be that the soles don't wear better. I would buy these forever, if ASICS continued to make them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love Nimbus but not 16 or 17 I have run in Nimbus for almost 10 years and love the cushioning and support but they do not hold up for high mileage runners anymore. The 16 & 17s are subpar at best. I sent one pair back to the company after a few weeks resulted in a completely torn side. I never received any note let alone a new pair . I have numerous tears and holes in the fabric of my 2 17s and 3 16s. My blue 15s are still intact despite marathon training and averaging 35 -45 miles per week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Asics! I love the Asics-Gel-Nimbus 17. This shoe is perfect for step aerobics, zumba, training in the gym, walking, and everyday life. The cushioning is superb as are the stability and comfort. I just ordered my third pair of this fabulous shoe because it has been discontinued. I had to stock up!
