This my third pair of Gel Nimbus 17. I run with a running group. I retire them after 300 miles and get a new pair. Please don't change the "17" features.
About This Item
ASICS Women's GEL-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe
Be prepared for the revolutionized GEL-Nimbus 17. The GEL-Nimbus 17 sheds some serious weight with the nearly seamless FluidFit upper to aid in preventing blisters, while a new FluidRide midsole and extended Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL-Cushioning system have improved the already opulent and comfortable ride. Crafted for a range of running gaits, the enhanced cushioning and support from the ComforDry X-40 Sockliner and Guidance Trustic System assist underpronators and those who run with a more neutral stride, while increasing both comfort and running efficiency.
GEL-Nimbus 17 Benefits
- Exceptional moisture management for high-level breathability
- Impeccable distance shoe for extreme/moderate underpronators
- Refined cushioning and support
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning:
ASICS GEL-Cushioning reduces the the shock during impact and toe-off phases, allowing for a smooth transition throughout your stride.
Ultimately, running shoes are about fit, and our FluidFit upper technology utilizes a combination of multi-directional stretch mesh and stretch reinforcements to create a glove-like fit.
The ability to bounce back within a shoe is important, but also being able to provide cushioning, reduced weight and exceptional durability is even better.

Better Than The Newer Versions!
I have newer versions of Asics Gel Nimbus, but for me, the older the better! In my opinion these 17's are not as narrow, are more true to size, have superior cushioning and much better support. So if you want that walking on clouds feeling, sometimes older IS better!
I bought these shoes almost a year ago and they are the best tennis shoes I could wear. They provide excellent support and my feet and knees don't hurt after working 12 hour shifts. I recommend these to everyone I meet, because I never thought I could wear tennis shoes daily and be comfortable. I have tried the expensive clogs that everyone wears and they don't even compare. My only complaint is that the mesh on the toe wears easily, I have a hole in both feet, and just recently replaced them with a new pair (of the same style). Great shoes, and are worth every penny.
Materials wear quickly
My complaint about these shoes is that my big toe has worn a hole in the mesh the shoe should have a more durable material where the toes are and they are kinda ugly the color of blue looks a lot better online and it's a very bright orange blue combo they look more like mens shoes I was going to send them back but tried them on anyways and have to say they are comfortable but won't buy them again
Love ASICS, however not the right fit :(
I bought these shoes 3 months ago, quite comfortable. However, I have extremely narrow feet. My personal experience felt the width of the heel is similar to normal medium but the remainder parts of the shoe is narrow. Which I understand the product can work for many people. I was left in disappointment, due to the fit because previous Nimbus shoes fit significantly better.
Bring back the GEL NIMBUS 15
The GEL NIMBUS 15 was a fabulous shoe that lasts miles and miles for runners. The current Nimbus 17 and 18 models are more light, tighter in fit and FAR less durable. ASICS: Please tell your design team and execs. to reconsider your client base: many of your clients are serious RUNNERS who need the durability of the NIMBUS 15. ALSO the colors were WAY better. Why not make a runners' line that showcases the NIMBUS 15: one of your best ideas ever? The GEL 17 and 18 may be okay for narrow-footed walkers, but not runners.
