Asics Gel-Nimbus Running Shoes Reviews

The Asics Gel Nimbus is the premium cushioning shoe from the Japanese brand. A best seller since 20 years, it is characterised by a very recognisable plush cushioning thanks to the GEL units and soft, luxurious materials for the upper. It is a step up in the line from the brand's own Asics Cumulus line.
