Product Details

Run further in the GEL-NIMBUS® 21 PLATINUM women'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.
  • Under
  • Neutral
  • Over


  • 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.


  • 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these!!!!!! I just bought these. Love them! Comfortable and very attractive. I have to wear Asics as they are the only running shoes that do not rub my heels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great support! Trying to get back into running and having issues with foor pain. Self diagnosed supinating (?) So searched for a shoe built for stability. Out of the box felt like walking on a cloud so headed for the trail and had my best run yet. No blisters, no rubbing, no pain during or after. Really pleased. Gonna put some mileage on them and likely order another pair. Thankyou for helping me get healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! Just purchased last week from the Running Room. I avoided trying on the Nimbus 21's because of the price tag, but after trying on many other brands and designs I finally decided to give it a go and they were so comfortable! I hardly had the shoe on and I already knew I would be buying them. Rolling of your toe is a natural movement with these shoes, as is side to side stability. I'm a women's 7.5 and fit a 7.5 perfectly, so I wouldn't recommend downsizing or up sizing your foot.
