Product Details

Run further in the GEL-NIMBUS® 21 PLATINUM men's road running shoe by ASICS. With a springy midsole, energized cushioning and clever technologies to keep your natural line of motion without twisting, you can focus on achieving greater distances every time. The GEL-NIMBUS® 21 PLATINUM shoe features I.G.S® (Impact Guidance System) technology to enhance your natural gait. A GUIDANCE LINE™ sole helps to stop you twisting, while TRUSSTIC SYSTEM® technology - a moulded component under the midfoot - provides extra stability and increases stride efficiency. In the midsole, FLYTEFOAM® Propel technology puts a spring in your step; it's a lightweight foam with a high-energy return elastomer for great bounce and unrivalled toe-off. GEL® technology in the rear and forefoot is a silicone material strategically placed to offer excellent shock absorbency - crucial for long-distance road runners. For extra comfort, there's even plush cushioning in the SpEVA 45 lasting, which provides added stability too. The shoe has a Jacquard mesh upper to help air flow freely to the foot, while the AHAR® heel plug gives added durability. This AHAR® sole is a tough compound which helps reduce wear and tear. The external heel counter grips the heel for a comfortable fit, while there's further support from an EVA sockliner. Running in low light? We've added even more reflective detail to ensure visibility when the evening draws in - so you can run when you want.


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 21 Platinum is made for Underpronation and Neutral.

  • 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.


  • 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 outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.

GEL-NIMBUS 21 Platinum is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort and style About four month, I decided to give Asics a try again. Boy, I'm glad I did. Two weeks ago, my wife and I go on a cruise to Mexico. We decided to do a visit to Uxmal in Yucatan. I wore the shoes for our visit. We walked, we climbed, we we were exploring. Through all the scenarios. I never felt discomfort and I never felt any pain in my knees. Like my Nike Pegasus did. I will say that my feet always felt secured and there was never any movement while using them. My biggest complaint with tennis shoes is a shoes that don't secure your foot while your using them. The toe box is wide the mid section never felt cumbersome or tight and the rear section is again secure. I will definitely purchased Asics again. *Update: After my trip I ended up purchasing 2 pairs of Nimbus 21 and 2 pairs of Cumulus. My entire intermediate family has become believers in the product. Especially my brother who is a big Adidas UB guy. He put his UB away and told he that the Nimbus just feels like better fit for him, while working out and running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Nimbus 21 will go any distance you can run The biggest noticeable difference between the Nimbus 19 and 20 vs the new 21 is that there is a wider toe box. These shoes have been great trainers and have ample yet responsive cushioning. I broke them in for two weeks and then ran a marathon in them and, while I didn't put in 100% effort, I still ran a sub-3 hour marathon and had no blisters or irritation in my calluses. Usually a marathon rewards me with one or two nickel sized blisters.
