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.

Product Details

The GEL-NIMBUS™ LITE 2 running shoe continues to build on our GEL-NIMBUS™ heritage by providing neutral runners with a lighter design and excellent cushioning. While the first iteration focused on combining a soft and lightweight design, this version builds on that same mindset but creates an even smoother cushioning experience. Part of our brand's sustainability initiative, this style also features a series of recycled materials while using fewer resources for a more eco-friendly design approach.

Nearly the entire upper of the GEL-NIMBUS™ LITE 2 is formed with recycled materials that help your feet breathe better throughout your run. Simultaneously, the FLYTEFOAM™ midsole technology incorporates Cellulose Nanofiber, a sustainable material that increases the durability of the foam.

Designed with an advanced software program that helps improve the shoe's cushioning properties, this model also references the design language of the GEL-NIMBUS™ series while creating a lighter and softer running experience. Meanwhile, the GEL™ technology cushioning in the forefoot and rearfoot improves comfort while increasing shock absorption. Additionally, the AHAR™ LITE Rubber outsole increases the shoe's durability and prolongs the mileage you get out of your running shoes.

Fusing advanced tech with design nuances that halo our GEL-NIMBUS™ series, the GEL-NIMBUS™ LITE 2 running shoe is part of our mission to help create a more sustainable world while offering soft cushioning and lightweight comfort.



Width: D standard - STANDARD

For men the standard shoe width is D, going up to a wide fitting 2E and the widest a 4E. In New Zealand the most common shoe width size* for men is a 2E. Find out more about widths.

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. The GEL-NIMBUS LITE 2 is made for Underpronation, and Neutral.

Under
Neutral

Severe Over

Underpronation

Foot Type

High arches

PUSH OFF

The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.

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.

Neutral

Foot Type

Normal size arches

PUSH OFF

There is even distribution from the front of the foot.

HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUND

The foot lands on the outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.

Product Features

Ahar Outsole

Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. ASICS High Abrasion Rubber is used in heavy wear areas to extend the life of the shoe.

Flytefoam Technology

Our lightest midsole ever. Its organic fibres bounce back into its original shape in the space of each stride to provide perfect cushioning from the start of your run to the finish.

Gel - Rearfoot And Forefoot

Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.

I.G.S Technology (Running)

Combines inter-linked sets of technical features to work together for more natural foot motions based on the requirements of specific sports.

Ortholite Sockliner

This premium sockliner features higher rebound properties while providing excellent moisture management and a high-level of breathability

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheRunner from Perfect Exellent Shoes. They are light and comfortable. Most importantly they have great support/cushion, which i assume must be the gel. Overall the best runners i have ever worn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TronDog from Great shoes! Awesome shoes, excellent cushioning and very bouncy. Kind of tricky to get the right lockdown, but not a big deal. Just need tightening more than you expect. Very plush. Sizing was exactly as predicted - 1 half size bigger than the exact fit according to the ASICS size chart. I have wide feet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FabNZ from Very disappointed with ASICS lite This is my first experience with ASICS lite. I do run and walk short distance. I’ve been using ASICS nimbus for approximately 20 years. When I went to buy new run shoes, I tried ASICS nimbus 22 and I felt it’s gel not as soft as my Nimbus gel 18 were when I bought them. So, I was offered to try ASICS nimbus lite. I felt comfortable and lite. So I decided to buy. However, roughly 5 months later it started to tear, it seen to be more fragile. I don’t recommend anyone to buy it. I’m very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daach from Great sneaker I've had my lite 2s for about a month and they have exceeded all my expectations. I have owned 5 or so pairs of Nimbus, the last being 22s. I usually get a numb little toe when breaking in sneakers but these new Nimbus have been perfect from the first time I put them on. I'm waiting for other colourways to purchase another pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Benz98 from Laces were frayed had been worn. Bought these rather expensive shoes and the laces were frayed and dirt on the soles. Were 2nd hand! NEVER buying without seeing them in person again.
