Enjoy comfort with each stride in the GEL-NIMBUS® 22 Retro Tokyo running shoe. Appropriate for neutral runners, this version sports a retro look that reflects the aesthetics and history of Tokyo. This iteration offers a more comfortable ride thanks to the wrap-around GEL® technology that cushions the entire foot and helps to reduce shock. Improved forefoot GEL® technology further reduce the load on feet, while the FLYTEFOAM® Propel technology in the midsole delivers more energetic ride. Featuring gender-specific GUIDANCE TRUSSTIC® technology under the arch of the shoe, this thermoplastic piece provides stability, reduces weight, and helps extend the life of the shoe. In the men’s model, this piece provides added support toward the inside of the arch. The lightweight, engineered mesh upper allows your feet to experience improved breathability, offering a supportive and adaptable fit. Designed with high mileage runners in mind, the GEL-NIMBUS® 22 shoe implements more foam in the midsole to reduce the severity of harsh impact. Additionally, a lightweight AHAR® outsole reduces the overall level of wear, allowing you to spend more time focusing on your running workouts. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner, the GEL-NIMBUS® 22 Retro Tokyo performance running shoe is designed to deliver soft cushioning and a more responsive stride.
Style #: 1012A665.100

Designed For Underpronation Neutral



  • Foot Type

    High arches
  • Push Off

    The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.
  • Considered Injuries

    Plantar fasciitis, shin splints, ankle strain.
  • 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.
  • Considered Injuries

    Less likely due to effective shock absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
  • 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.
  • Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Technology Cushioning System
    Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
  • FLYTEFOAM® Midsole Technology
    Our FLYTEFOAM® technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.
  • Guidance Trusstic System™ Technology
    This Trusstic System® Technology integrates Guidance Line® construction for enhanced gait efficiency while providing midfoot structural integrity.
  • AHAR® Outsole
    Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. Placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.
  • Engineered Mesh Upper
    Multi-directional mesh material improves ventilation and stability.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as previous models I've been buying the Gel Nimbus for at least 5 years and this is by far the worst style. The 22 doesn't have nearly the same support as previous styles. I'm very disappointed in this style. They have become my yard/work shoes and now I have to spend money on a new pair. Might have to look at another brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Asics Nimbus style... but wear down quicker? I've been getting Asics since the Nimbus 11's or so - I know each time my size fits and I can run in the shoes that very day without any sort of blisters/feet pain. I have noticed the quality seems a bit less over the years? I purchased these same shoes in a different color back in November 2020, and I certainly don't run as much as I used to (~10 miles a week now vs 20+ a week back in the day) and I feel they wore down much quicker, got a hole by the pinky-toe area and the bottoms wore down. I only wear them for running, so not everyday walking/wear-and-tear. I'm sure I'll continue purchasing them for years to come, but, might be keeping a closer eye on how long I can wear a pair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's cute but not as good as nimbus 21 The first day I hit on the road, I know the cushion is no where comparable to nimbus 21. I am training for marathon, and the longer I run, the less support I feel from those shoes. I had two pairs of nimbus 21, and I love both of them a lot. I don't know what's wrong with this 22, but they are just not as good. I did feel this 22 have slightly larger space around toes. The shoes are light and cute, which I really like.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too small; cheap constrution I've been wearing the Gel-Nimbus since the #18. They always fit perfectly and the cushion in the soles would wear out before the material/top of the shoe. The #22's sizing is smaller and the material that the shoe is made from is cheap. They are only 3 months old and the tops are getting holes in them! I don't even wear these for running or rough exercising. I wear them for my job which requires standing all day. I am thoroughly disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY NIMBUS FOR CHICAGO MARATHON I cant wait to run my first marathon with my best and incondittionally nimbus.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful shoes, inconsistent production This is my second pair of the Gel Nimbus 22 and I am super disspointed. I loved my first pair, which wore out after 6 months, and now with the second pair, it feels like a completely different shoe! They are tighter around my heel and toes, feeling too snug, even though they are the same size as my previous pair. I don't understand why these shoes feel so different when they are the same model... I just submitted a request for a refund/warranty because of how unhappy I am. I have a wider foot, wear a size 8, do a daily walk of 2.5 miles in a relatively hilly neighborhood, and originally loved the squishy heel in my first pair, but the second pair feels so different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! Love these as much as I love all my Gel nimbus for my 10km runs, but these have that awesome retro look!
