Heel Drop
10 mm
259 g/9.1 oz

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.
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. 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shor Fits true to size but the arch is a little high for my feet that’s why I only gave it 4 stars

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Uncomfortable / Should have returned them I've purchased may shoes from Asics but these are the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever worn. They hut my feet, legs and all the way up my back. I would like to return them but I wore them for a couple of days thinking it was just me but it's the shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic daily runner Super light, great fit, crazy comfortable. Love these shoes. I have high arches and these provide just enough support without pushing into my arch. They fit as expected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again… Stopped wearing after three uses. Can’t return them so they sit in the box gathering dust. Waste of money!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great support I’m a heavy runner and this shoe gives me the support I need while still feeling like a much lighter shoe. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heaven on your feet! If you underpronate and have foot pain due to injury or weight this sneakers are heaven

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good update As an older runner, I’m more interested in cushion for my feet than a fast response. The Gel Nimbus Lite 2 delivers a soft ride in a shoe that doesn’t weigh a lot. I ran in the original Gel Nimbus Lite and it was a nice soft shoe, but I like the new model a bit better. Good colors, better fit. 4 stars instead of 5 because it can’t compare in cushion to my Nike ZoomX shoes, but I prefer the Nimbus Lite 2 for everyday runs.
