One of the most popular cushioned running shoe series on today's market is Asics' GEL-Nimbus series. Their beloved well-cushioned, neutral trainer has recently gotten an upgrade: the Asics GEL-Nimbus 15.
For those of you who already love the Nimbus 14, you'll be happy to hear that the GEL-Nimbus 15 has even more cushioning. The Nimbus 15 will have the new FluidRide Platform, which is a two-piece midsole design. The top layer is a blended rubber, made to maximize comfort. The bottom layer of the midsole is made from the more conventional non-blended rubber, which is lighter and more flexible, allowing the shoe to offer a more responsive ride.
The Nimbus 15 also boasts larger gel units in the heel and forefoot for better impact protection than the Nimbus 14.
Finally, the ASICS GEL-Nimbus 15 comes with a new FluidFit Upper which has multi-directional mesh and stretchable reinforcements. This should make the fit more biomorphic, more ergonomic and offer improved breathability.
The weight is slightly more for this shoe; however, we've heard that you can’t tell when you're running.
Plus, the color selection is fantastic. We think the Nimbus 15 will be one of the most exciting new shoes this spring.
