ASICS Women's GEL-Nimbus 21

  • $ 150.00


There are some pretty significant changes to the new ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21, which change the overall fit and feel of the shoe. Let's see how the new one fits, feels, and functions!

The new Nimbus is - in theory - ASICS' maximum-cushion neutral trainer. The 21 continues the departure from the long line of soft, pillowly Nimbus' and is even firmer than the the outgoing 20.

ASICS GEL-NIMBUS 20 vs 21!

  • ASICS continues the trend towards a performance/responsive ride and away from a soft, protective ride
  • The redesigned upper provides slightly more room in the toebox and creates a wider shoe overall
  • The midsole has seen significant changes and the shoe is much more responsive/faster (and less cushioned)
  • Like other recent ASICS updates, the midsole isn't as flexible as you might expect - the overall feel is a little slappy
  • On the plus side, the shoe feels much better when running than it does upon initial step-in (which feels very firm)
