Well did Asics come to the dinner table with a full roast chicken AND sides with this one. They have taken the tried and trusted Nimbus, now in its 22nd iteration, and completely tossed the recipe book out on this one. And so far the dinner is being well received. The Nimbus Lite is a trimmed down, modern and fun shoe that loses a lot of the rigidity and stiffness of some previous ASICS models. It has also embraced sustainability with its design making extensive use of recycled materials in the upper and biomass materials derived from sugarcane in the midsole.
The Nimbus Lite has a lot of cushioning and responsiveness, it’s soft and bouncy but not sloppy. This is thanks to the all new FlyteFoam midsole with gel pads embedded in the forefoot and heel. If you haven’t run in ASICS in a while, give the GEL-Nimbus Lite a shot. And if you are a fan of ASICS, this shoe might blow your mind.
