Heel Drop
13 mm
220 g/7.8 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 I would give 5 stars but.. Comfortable for being on my feet all day. My only issue is the fabric tore on the side of my feet so I’m worried how long they will last until the fabric tears all the way. I have had these for two months.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected The toe box was larger than normal and they looked like clown shoes on my feet. I only tried them on and sent them back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shoe. This is my second pair of these shoes. I walk 5 to 8 miles a day and the are comfortable from day 1. I do exchange the insole with a Powerstep insole for more arch support. No worries about blisters or breaking them in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Help keep me from falling! A drunk driver hit me. As a result, my right ankle doesn’t stay straight lots of times and tends to bend out. These shoes help keep me from failing and make it easier to walk. I plan to buy another pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gel nimbus lte So happy with this shoe. I’ve had the gel nimbus in other incarnations, this is my first lte. Bought these to terrace a new pair of epic reacts that I suspected were giving me knee pain. Within a week of switching, my knee pain subsided and I’ve been running pain free since! Super happy about this purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HAPPY feet comfort and soooo sharp looking! I wore Ascics gels for more than a decade. Was convinced to switch to Hoka....sorry to use the H word. They were comfortable, but I never felt comfortable IN them due to design of shoe and extreme wide toebox. A hiatus, due to health issues, has brought me back to mindfully care for my temple and prayerfully achieve my best in several years. Starting fresh was a must. Enter, the Gel-Nimbus Lite 2 in Blazing Coral/White. Incredibly light, my plantar fasciitis is relieved and seriously the best looking shoe ever. Again, after several years of health struggles I'm back to weight lifting, walking and yes, even running. I feel confident, comfortable and capable in the Nimbus Lite 2. Feels like spending time with an old friend and beyond happy to be back in Ascics. Thanks for a GREAT shoe! Gotta run!
