Asics Gel-Nimbus 17 running shoe review

The Sport Review reviews the Asics Gel-Nimbus 17 , which is perfect for runners of all capabilities

For runners who want to begin each stride with a soft landing, the Asics Gel-Nimbus 17 is the perfect running shoe.

Fit: The Gel-Nimbus 17 is billed as one of most comfortable running shoes for neutral runners, with a snug upper made with stretchy mesh to ensure maximum comfort. The independently placed eyelets disperse lace tension, creating a customized fit environment and enhanced upper comfort.

Feel: This Asics shoe boasts some of the latest running technology. The Impact Guidance System (IGS) enhances the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. The Trusstic System reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoes.

Ride: Clutch Counter Exoskeletal heel counter provides improved support and creates improved heel fitting environment. FluidRide provides the ultimate in bounce back and cushioning characterises while being lightweight.

Weight: 353 gms (12.4 Oz)

Price: £140

Verdict: The Asic Gel-Nimbus 17 is a very durable running shoe. While it is noticeably heavier than other running shoes previously reviewed, the added weight is a small price to pay of the comfort. The No17 will have no trouble surviving the rigours of outdoor running, but lighter shoes may be preferable in the gym.

Rating: 7/10
