Answer 5 quick questions and we'll match you with the shoes that fit the way you move
What type of shoes are you looking for?
Men and women have different needs to support their gait, foot structure, and biomechanics. ASICS designs gender-specific running shoes to improve performance, comfort and safety.
Where will you be running?
If the majority of your running takes place off road, trail shoes can provide performance and safety that road designed shoes cannot.
What is more important to you?
Built for distance, these shoes have extra cushioning - providing more protection. You love to challenge yourself to run for longer.
Built for speed, these shoes are lighter for a more responsive ride. You love to run fast, train for speed and feel like flying.
Do you need extra support?
Pronation is the natural movement of your feet while running. Stability shoes are for runners who overpronate (your foot rolls inwards when you land)
For underpronators and neutral runners who are predisposed to an outward or neutral rolling motion as the foot progresses toward toe-off.
Research shows that around 4 in 5 runners risk injury in shoes that don't suit their running style.
Pronation is the natural movement of your feet while running. Stability shoes are recommended for runners who overpronate, which means your foot rolls inwards when you land. For more information, visit our Pronation Guide.
What level of comfort would you like?
All runners have different cushioning preferences. The more cushioning, the softer the ride.
ASICS has developed innovative cushioning technologies that are strategically placed to reduce impact. By minimising impact, our cushioning technologies increase the level of comfort and give you an even softer ride.

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 ASICS 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.
