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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Plus 3® Midsole Technology

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

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.

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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Customer Service I've been a wearer of the Gel Nimbus model for a number of years. This years model posed an issue with a subtle change to the toe box area. I normally wear a 9.5 women but had to go up to a size 10. Had to return the Gel Nimbus NYC Marathon edition. The process was seamless. Just wish you do an exchange instead of processing for credit then turning around and purchasing again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought as a gift I bought these as a gift for my girlfriend who mentioned needing another pair of shoes (she already owns two other pairs of ASICS, the same kind). The NYC Marathon just so happened to fall on her birthday (November 6, 2016), so I had to buy that edition for her as her birthday this year is printed on the shoes! They arrived a couple days after ordering, plenty of time before her birthday. We live in the United States, but she's currently all the way over in England traversing the British countryside in her pretty, birthday shoes. Thanks, ASICS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These I've always had good luck with Asics. These Gel Nimbus 18 sneakers are very cushioned I feel like I'm walking on soft pillows. I use these for long distance like my other gel nimbus pairs. They have always performed well. I did go up in size on these because in my last pair I had friction in my heal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shoes! Gorgeous design and colours We bought these shoes as a gift for someone who is going to run in the New York Marathon this year, she was stoked! Only slightly disappointing thing was that we ordered it in a gift box with a "special message", I had assumed the message would come on a card or something but it just came on the delivery docket and looked pretty crappy. Also the apostrophes in the message all came out as upside down question marks? Other than that all good and the shoes are of course beautiful. We love Asics

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique design I am a big ASIC's fan. I love their running shoes. I have the NYC mRathon shoe from last year and I get so many compliments. This years shoe color is less practical for me, but I like it fine. Thanks to Asics for making this available to all of us, although not cheap, worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect sneakers for NYC Marathon this year! I've been running in Nimbus' for the past 8 years. There have been some years when I have not been pleased with the updates, but this wasn't one of them. The structure and cushioning is similar to the 12's and 15's and I am thrilled with this version. My first two runs with them I ran significant PR's, in the 5k and 20 mile distance, and my feet felt amazing. I can't wait to run all 5 boroughs in these this November! As with any Asics, I recommend ordering at least a half size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shoes Nimbus is my favorite and absolutely " go to " running shoe. I only started running 4 years ago an NYC will be my 3rd Marathon. Nimbus is the only style of shoe I've worn during theses races. Not are they super comfortable, great cushioning, but the colors and patterns are always fashion forward.
