On Saturday the 6th of January I helped out at the London Regent Street store for the launch of the Gel Nimbus 20 running shoe and with fellow Asics Frontrunner team member Ralph.

I had a chance to use the new shoe and see what I thought about it, so here is my review. The Gel Nimbus has now been going for 20 years and I can see why and it is a popular trainer around the world and one of Asics best products.

I had the 19s which are a great shoe so I was interested to see what the difference is. I must say I am very impressed at a glance they looked the same as the 19s. However don’t be fooled the 20s firstly feel lighter and they still have that comfy feeling. If anything they feel a lot more comfy because the mesh is different and Asics have also improved lacing. This has therefore made it even more comfy. Just what you need in your runs and I will be using these on my long runs. Some colours are the same but also there are some new funky colours.

My conclusion is that if you want a comfy and trendy running shoe for your runs then this is the shoe for you. The Nimbus has been a comfy shoe since its launch and now it’s got even better.
