The Nimbus has always been a very popular shoe for long easy run, or moderate pace run and races for less experienced runner. Its comfort, cushioning and stability has gain popularity for over 20 years, being one of the most sell models in the world.
As most of the cushioned shoe, it's not a light weight and responsive shoe, but one of those pair of shoe that guarantee to you maximum comfort all the time.
As a huge fans of light, responsive shoes, I was very excited to try the lighter version of the Nimbus, namely the Nimbus Lite, which should combine the comfort of the traditional model, with some lighter weight and more response...it did not disappointed!
Compared to the Nimbus 22 this version is slightly tighter in the upper/midfoot (closer to a light weight shoe feeling), but still keeping good space and comfort.
It is around 50g lighter than the "original" model (275g for men), but still the new composition of the FlyteFoam in the midsole works with the Gel technology, both in the forefoot and rearfoot, to soften your stride and improve your comfort. This make the cushioning good for longer run, although the shoe is responsive and feel much faster than a regular cushioned shoe.
Both the textile and the sole are very resistant and made out of sustainable material.
The heel drop is around 10mm, working well also when running at more sustained paced run.
I have tested the Nimbus Lite on easy run and moderate long run with strides. I am very happy with the versatility of this shoe, the lightness and the running feeling. Even though I prefer shoes which are light and responsive, the Nimbus Lite gives similar feeling with good cushioning and full comfort in the upper/midfoot. The sole works nice both on gravel and asphalt, and the shoe adapts well on both dry and wet conditions. It fits tighter than the regular Nimbus and other Asics model, so you might need an half size bigger than you are used to.
The history of the Nimbus not only continues, but expand its boundaries with a new exciting model that mix the traditional cushioning and comfort with lighter weight and better response-
It is a shoe suitable for many different sessions that adapt well to different conditions, no less it looks amazing both in style and colours to use it in the free time. It might be the perfect shoe to take with you on holiday.

Shorts are a way of lifeby Marco Anelli / Jul. 24, 2020
Everyone who knows me won't ask a detailed review of a pair of long tights or warm jacket. I rarely use more than a long sleeve t-shirt in winter (except in the mountains), especially when running with a backpack to work. Long tights are perfect for skiing...otherwise I use shorts all the year long. But there, I like to call me an expert! :) Asics offers a pair of shorts for each occasion.
DS Trainer 25 - One step back to move faster forwardby Marco Anelli / May. 25, 2020
DS Trainer has been one of the most successfull model for Asics for many years. The innovation continues with the DS Trainer 25. Following the improvement introduced with the DS Trainer 24, but with slightly more response like the 23. Indeed a great mix of the best features to run even faster.
Lightness, grip and stability in one model: Fujitrabuco Lyteby Marco Anelli / Feb. 06, 2020
Almost a year ago Asics launched the Fujitrabuco Pro, a lighter and more aggressive model of the traditional Fujitrabuco. Now an even lighter model is on the market, the Fujitrabuco Lyte. I could test the shoe for a few winter runs and here you can find some feedback.
