Heel Drop
10 mm
310 g/10.9 oz
The GEL-NIMBUS® 23 running shoe continues to offer excellent comfort and long-run impact absorption. Its improved stability provides a more balanced stride that's followed by smoother transitions. Constructed with comfort and breathability in mind, this shoe features a softer engineered mesh design for long runs. Engineered eyelet shaping helps the upper move more naturally with the foot, while a stretchy midfoot panel appropriately hugs the foot to generate better flexibility. Additionally, the shoe's upper is made with recycled materials to reduce waste and carbon emissions. Providing the runner with excellent shock absorption and softness, the GEL-NIMBUS® 23 delivers more compression in the heel thanks to its softer GEL® technology cushioning unit and contoured design lines. Also, a gender-specific TRUSSTIC™ device provides an articulated amount of support in the right direction for men and women to help generate a smooth transition. Under the toe, the inclusion of gender-specific pillars help cushion the body and help runners experience a softer feel. Simultaneously, the OrthoLite™ X-55 sockliner equips runners with a forgiving, yet responsive stride. The components of the GEL-NIMBUS® 23 shoe help increase the softness without forgoing the integrity of the shoe's ride. Our 23rd version of the GEL-NIMBUS® continues to make advancements within the lineage by offering improved support and comfort for distance runners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Underpronation Apparently, my shin splints, pain on the balls of my feet and outer feet, and the pain in muscle on the outside of my calf can all be attributed to under pronation or supination. These shoes have really helped with the problems. I am very happy with them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I will never buy another pair of Nimbus I am extremely disappointed in Asics. I have purchased over 30 pairs of Nimbus shoes and run marathons in all 50 states wearing them. I have attributed my success as a runner to finding good quality shoes that provided a firm but flexible, neutral running solution for a larger but higher mile runner. I have carefully tracked mileage and durability over the years and have actual data (on a spread sheet that includes mileage from every run on each pair of shoes) that shows how the shoe performance has changed over the years. So, I have been disenchanted with what I perceive as cheapening of this shoe over the past few versions. The 23 simply sucks and will be the last I buy. You have ruined a great shoe. I encourage you to go back about 10 generations and look at what a great running shoe looks and performs like as these newer ones just miss the mark. It may be more profitable to sell to casual runners or those looking to make a fashion statement but comes at the detriment of previously loyal runners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gel Nimbus 23 Very comfortable and supportive. My back used to hurt while running in another brand but I switched to the Gel Nimbus 22 and the pain stopped. As you can tell this is my second pair of Asics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shoes - Huge Improvement From the 22's I have the Ventures and Nimbus 22's. These shoes are way more comfortable. Instantly, I felt the difference. I suffered with plantar fasciitis. Now, after wearing the shoes for a week and a half, I don't have anymore pain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shoe Structure They are too soft. Orthotics will help. The structure of the shoe is nice though.
