In our detailed ASICS Gel Nimbus 18 REVIEW below, we present you with even more outstanding features that set this ASICS new release apart from its predecessors (and its competitors too).

Special Features and Benefits of the ASICS Gel Nimbus 18 Runners Shoe:

High Level of Fit and Comfort

The testers and users of this shoe are overly excited at how comfortable it makes them feel and how it gives them a fit like no other shoe has done it before. So, what’s the secret to all this? Well, Nimbus 18 comes with a seamless upper design. This completely cuts down the irritations associated with the traditional stitches and seams. And that’s how the comfort is achieved! In addition to this, the shoe bears a Heel Clutching System. This is an external heel counter that gives your heels a perfect fit and grip inside the show. The shoe also comes with discrete eyelets that are totally independent of each other. With these, you can easily disperse the lace tension to achieve a custom fit.

Effective Moisture Management

For an effective moisture management, Nimbus 18 is the shoe to buy. It’s designed in such a way that it provides you feet with a cool, dry environment throughout.
ComforDry X-40 sock liner is responsible for this job. It’s an anti-microbial tool that makes your legs feel cool, dry (and comfortable) throughout your running experience. The tool works closely with ComforDry Lasting (on the premium insole) to effectively manage and eliminate moisture.

Smooth transition

If your current shoe makes smooth transition feel like a nightmare to you, don’t worry. You can dump it today for this great product from ASICS. Nimbus 18 will let you experience the real benefits of the smooth transition. This is due to the fact that it bears a forefoot and rearfoot gel cushioning. Wondering how this works? Well, it relieves any impact resistance (whether high or low) to grant you ultra-smooth transition.

GEL-NIMBUS 18 womensDifferent Colors Patterns Available!

If you love color patterns, this might get you smiling. Nimbus 18 supports a total of FOUR different color patterns. These are Black-Silver Carbon, Black-White-Island Blue, Electric Blue-Hot Orange-Black, and Silver-Ink-Flash Yellow. What a great way to add a sense of style to your running shoe! Select one that bears your favorite color pattern. And you’ll surely stand from your friends on the track!

Durable, Long-lasting Construction

The outsole is comprised of DuraSponge with AHAR (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber). This gives your shoe better cushioning and traction abilities as well as a great durability boost. On top of this, ASICS employs Trusstic System technology in this shoe. This helps retain the shoe’s structural integrity. All throughout, the shoes bear high-quality materials that make it durable and make it able to last for a long period without experiencing any damages.

Excellent Stability

Stability too has been improved in this shoe compared to Nimbus 17. The higher stability in Nimbus 18 is clearly achieved by the massive improvements in the midsole design. Its construction has been completely revised for a better stability, including making the foam firmer.
