Good day everyone, this is not my normal Blog post content but after Asics SA reached out to me to review there new ASICS Gel Nimbus 20, I decided to fully embrace it and put it to the test. I’ve been running on the road, on the beach, went for a hike, wore it around the house and actually participated in a functional class with it on as well.
Here’s how I experienced it wearing this shoe.
This is not your fashionable Adidas sneaker, or light Nike free. This is a rugged, off road running shoe disguised in a beautiful pastel pink and light grey. Just my type of girly mixed with the outdoor look.
The Nimbus is a high cushioned shoe that provides a highly comfortable ride during daily training and running. The Nimbus 20 contains a FluidRide FlyteFoam combination in the forefoot and heel area of the shoe and the combination of the two makes it great for shock absorption on those runs/walks on the pavement, and responsive enough for those quicker short or long runs. The strong durable rubber outsole also adds great traction for foot strike and toe off for hiking for example.
-Women’s Stack Height: 13mm heel/toe offset
-Weight: 264 grams for the Women’s shoe
-The Nimbus 20 retails for:
- R2699,00 at Total sports. (https://www.totalsports.co.za/pdp/women-s-asics-gel-nimbus-20-grey-peach-shoe/_/A-139247AAFP8?gclid=CjwKCAiAk4XUBRB5EiwAHBLUMViaba1SC1bdh6Q-6F9axbGqGKD2YBIb2_wDG1DpP8uTIU66AxOYaRoCNAIQAvD_BwE)
- R2699, 90 at Sportmans warehouse (https://www.sportsmanswarehouse.co.za/product/asics-womens-gel-nimbus-20-road-running-shoes)
-Very comfortable to wear and has a great cushion feeling.
-Good tight fit (good for narrower feet)
-Smooth transition from foot strike to toe off
-Run’s half a size smaller than other shoes.
-Quit a tight fit all round (I have narrow feet) So just beware of that if you have wider feet, it may not be the best for you.
The Nimbus 20 is a comfortable neutral running shoe with lots of cushion. I would advise this to any girl who is starting to run longer distances on the road, trails or just for everyday use when you are on your feet a lot. The added FlyteFoam cushion it gives the shoe a lighter and more responsive touch that runners most certainly want. Overall I am very happy with the shoe and I definitely enjoy wearing it! Just remember to go half a size up from your normal size if you are ordering online!
Thank you to Asics SA for reaching out to me and giving me the opportunity to trial and review these for them!
