Today ASICS launches the 23rd edition of its neutral long-distance running shoe, the GEL-NIMBUS™ 23. Named after the Latin term for the Nimbus cloud formation, this flagship shoe has become synonymous for comfort by runners’ of all abilities for over 20 years.
With each new release better than the last, the GEL-NIMBUS™ 23 takes comfort to a new level with the introduction of gender-specific features designed to provide tailored support.
