More revolution than evolution, the 17th entry in Asics’ ever-popular Gel-Nimbus Series represents a landmark moment in the shoe’s history; offering the plushest ride to date along with a severe reduction in weight and a host of new technologies to boot. Trust us, this is one upgrade you won’t want to miss!
First and foremost weight really does take centre stage – and even though the Nimbus was never a particularly heavy shoe – Asics have managed to cut more than half an ounce from the Nimbus 17, making it the lightest entry in the shoe’s 10yr+ history at an astonishing 10.8 oz.
But despite the crash course diet the Nimbus 17 still retains that signature pillowy-soft ride thanks to extended Gel Cushioning Units at the heel and forefoot and a revised Fluidride Midsole Platform.
Long-standing Asics fans will probably be familiar with the manufacturer’s Silicone-based Gel-Cushioning System (for the uninitiated, it’s awesome!) but even devout followers may not be up to speed with Fluidride – Asics’ most sophisticated midsole platform to date.
Using a combination of SpEVA and EVA, Fluidride delivers the ultimate in cushioning and bounce-back for an ultra-plush, luxurious ride and unparalleled comfort from the first mile to the last.
A new, nearly seamless FluidFit Upper also provides exceptional comfort through the top of the shoe, combining Engineered Stretch Mesh with Strategically-placed Overlays to create a glove-like fit that hugs, moves and stretches with the foot.
Independently-placed Eyelets also distribute lace tension more effectively across the top of the foot, enhancing upper comfort still further, as does the new ComforDry X-40 Sockliner which rides atop the Nimbus 17’s full-length ComforDry Lasting.
And, as always, with Asics’ famous Gel Cushioning you get maximum shock absorption and unrivalled impact protection. What’s more, the Nimbus 17 also comes a Seal of Acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association so you know it’s good!
This "Lite-Show" edition of the Nimbus 17 also boasts better low-light visibility thanks to the inclusion of Reflective Accents throughout the upper and Glow-in-the-Dark treated Gel.
All these features combine to deliver a running experience that’ll feel like you’re running on air.
