The flagship cushioning shoe in the ASICS collection, the GEL-NIMBUS 14 provides exceptional comfort and cushioning for neutral and underpronating runners. The 14th edition of this award-winning shoe significantly reduces its weight, creating a faster ride without compromising on comfort.
This shoe is also available (in the newer edition, the Nimbus 15 and in a different colour) in a WIDE fitting: T3B1N and EXTRA-WIDE: T3B2N.
This shoe also includes the Full Length Guidance Line, a groove along the sole that guides your foot through the gait cycle and helps you run more efficiently, even when fatigue sets in.
The innovative Heel Clutching System fits snugly around your heel to create extra support. Further adding to the shoe’s great customised fit are the Asymmetrical Lacing Design and the Discrete Eyestay Construction, which reduce the potential for irritation.
With its high-tech cushioned ride the GEL-NIMBUS 14 is the ideal shoe for your long runs.
3M SCOTCHLITE™ - A special reflective material that enhances visibility when light is poor.
AHAR+ - This is a thinner and lighter version of ASICS High Abrasion Resistance rubber. It is placed on heavy contact areas of the outsole to reduce excessive wear.
BIOMORPHIC FIT- The Biomorphic technology is incorporated into the upper where the areas of highest deformation are found. This ensures a better fit, improved comfort, less risk of injury and enhanced performance.
COMFORDRY SOCKLINER - This insole provides the optimum cushioning performance system, along with anti-microbial properties, creating a cooler, drier, healthier shoe environment.
DISCRETE EYESTAY LACING - Independently placed eyelets disburse lace tension, creating a customised fitting enviroment and enhanced upper comfort, while reducing possible irritation.
DURASPONGE - A blown AHAR rubber outsole material with high abrasion-resistant qualities for added durability, combined with a comfortable, cushioned ride.
GEL (REARFOOT & FOREFOOT) CUSHIONING SYSTEM - Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
GUIDANCE LINE - Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.
GUIDANCE TRUSSTIC - This Trusstic System integrates Guidance Line construction for enhanced gait efficiency while providing midfoot structural integrity.
HEEL CLUTCHING SYSTEM - An external Pebax Heel Clutching System which works like an exoskeleton, providing support while clearing the heel area of a bulky internal structure. This innovation makes the shoe lighter and eliminates almost everything that might cause blisters or chafing.
I.G.S. - The ASICS Impact Guidance System or I.G.S. is a technical shoe design philosophy that allows the athlete’s foot to perform in a more natural manner. ASICS high-tech I.G.S. shoes are constructed in a way that enhances natural “gait”.
