The standard (medium) width for women is B, while the standard width for men is D. Shoe boxes and labels will only identify widths other than standard. Within the shoes, wide and narrow widths are identified on the label, underneath the tongue — ie. T005N(2E).

When is additional width needed?
Visible stretching or bulging on the outsides of forefoot materials is a good indicator that additional width may be needed. These sizes are available in many of our Running and Training shoes. In some cases, men can wear women’s styles to achieve a narrow fit and women can wear men’s to get a wide. If this is needed, please use the references above to determine comparable size lengths. Please note that the differences of width between narrow, standard, wide, and extra wide are usually only a couple millimeters and are proportional to the size of the shoe. Most additional width will be found in the forefoot.

Pronation

Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18 is made for under, neutral.
  • UNDER
  • NEUTRAL
  • OVER
Underpronation (Supination)
How Your Foot Contacts the Ground
The outer side of the heel hits the ground at an increased angle with little or no normal pronation, causing a large transmission of shock through the lower leg.
Push Off
The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.
Considered Injuries
Plantar fasciitis, Shin splints, Ankle strain.
Foot Type
High arches
Neutral
How Your Foot Contacts the Ground
The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
Push Off
There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
Considered Injuries
Less likely due to effective shock absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
Foot Type
Normal size arches

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chose 17 over 18 I was walking, for work, on mostly concrete flooring, approx 30-40 miles a week. My runners are runners. I needed a supportive, cushioned, roomy toe box sneak to save my hips and feet. The Nimbus 18, had recently been released but it wasn't even close to the comfort and support of the 17. I waited for 2 weeks for my prized horridly ugly orange Nimbus 17, to be shipped from CA to TN. I wish oh wish I had purchased every 8.5B Nimbus 17 I could find. I knew loyal Nimbus lovers were gonna be mad, disappointed, and shocked that the 18 was even called a Gel-Nimbus. My 17's are in need of retirement but I can't. I hope Asics has listened to it's loyal customers and the 19 shows significant improvement-which means back to some of the 17's most beloved features. Newer is definitely not better in this case.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shoes make toes go numb & balls of feet ache First & last pair of Asics shoe I'll ever buy. Gel Nimbus 18 are way too tight, cuts off the circulation in my feet & leaves balls of feet very sore, can't wear longer than 30 minutes. Going up a size or wide width didn't work, just made them clown shoes with same problems. I had my daughter wear them, after 20 minutes her toes were also numb. Asics stated the shoe box is smaller but claim it's not a defect. Since Asics would not warranty their own shoe, the store allowed me to return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this running shoes in January I think it's super comfortable and flexible not to mention the superb cushioning it offers. However nimbus 19 does not offer any of the above totally disappointed by the new product it's too rigid and although it might seem that it offers cushioning it's just like running on wood

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wore out quick I bought this 10 weeks ago on amazon and usually walk/jog 10-15 miles per week. The heel liner is completely worn down on 1 foot and the sole of the other shoe is worn all the way thru the tread on the ball of the foot. Worst pair of asics I've owned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have worn ASICS gel nimbus for years, running several marathons, and always comfortable and happy with the shoe. I bought the Nimbus 18 and am very disappointed. The toe box is too small, causing blisters on my toes, there is no support in the front of the shoe and I am now having knee and hip pain from these shoes. I had to buy a different brand, which took some time, and am sorry to say that I feel very let down by Asics and will not return as a customer until they return to the wider toe box and more even support of the foot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Feel different than 17 I bought these to replace 17 and feet go numb. It does not feel like there is the same amount of cushion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lpell I love this shoe. Very comfortable!! So comfortable that I bought them for work. I'm a nurse and I'm on my feet all day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe This is the second pair of Asics I have purchased. My first pair was the Gel Nimbus 17's and I wore them everywhere for 3 years. I loved the cushion insole and the feel of walking on a cloud. The Nimbus 18's aren't as comfortable however once broke in they are great shoes. The one thing I'm not a fan of with this version is the stiffer heal. The sizing seems to run a little smaller than the 17's as well. All in all it is still a great shoe and I'm happy with my purchase.
