Women's ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21: The Facts
Top Reasons to Buy the Women's ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21
Who doesn't love the thought of running with squishy gel cushioning beneath your feet? The signature ASICS GEL technology is here in full stride, placed full length from heel to toe!
There's a reason the Nimbus has been the ASICS flagship shoe for neutral, long-distance runners for over 20 years: it's the perfect balance between a lightweight, responsive run and plush, comforted protection.
ASICS just won't stop innovating! The latest GEL-Nimbus 21 boasts the first-ever dual-density midsole designed to help optimize your running experience.
What People Are Saying About the Women's ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21
One shopper thought that the fit of the new women's GEL-Nimbus 21 was much better than the 20 iteration thanks to a roomier toe box.
Now that the interior is a little wider, one shopper commented that her shoes fit her orthotics very nicely–meaning you can dial in your perfect fit with custom insoles, no problem at all!
According to one female athlete, the women's GEL-Nimbus 21 has turned into her trusty workout shoe. Oh, and she had to mention how cute the colors are!
Women's ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21 Updates
The dual-density foam in the midsole is one of the biggest updates in this shoe, but you'll also score an improved fit in the upper with more room in the toe box and snug support in the midfoot region.
Size and Fit of the Women's ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21
General Size and Fit
Choose between two different width sizes in the ASICS GEL-Nimbus 21 for women. When it comes to length, our Fit Experts suggest going up one-half size from your true foot size to accommodate for all that pavement pounding.
The updated jacquard mesh upper fits like a true gem while the heel clutching system keeps you locked in place during your high-intensity runs. Go for miles and miles thanks to the Ortholite X-40 sockliner that not only delivers high breathability and excellent moisture management, but also increases the shoe's rebound properties. Wet, sweaty feet are tended to with an added pep in your step!
The midsole is where you'll find the FlyteFoam Propel and FlyeFoam Lyte cushioning materials; the former (on top) is designed with responsiveness and energy return in mind; the latter (on bottom) softens landings with plush cushioning, but without added bulk or weight. The ASICS GEL technology also runs the full length of the women's Nimbus GEL-21 so no matter where you strike your foot, you can enjoy this premium shock absorption.
You need shoes that can keep up when you want to go the extra distance–and the ASICS High Abrasion Rubber (AHAR) won't back down. The AHAR material is placed strategically across the outsole of the women's GEL-Nimbus 21 for exceptional durability and top-notch traction.
