I’m sure we’ve all owned a set of Asics at some point in our lives and I’d hedge a bet that most of us have owned a pair of Gel-Nimbus shoes. The Gel-Nimbus 13 is, as the name suggests, the 13th style in a pedigree line of award-winning trainers.
It’s a neutral high miler with stable cushioning, but doesn’t get lost like others on test with overly soft outsoles. The fit is as good as always, and the upper is secure and flexible in the right places.
The one thing that the Nimbus could have been tarred with in the past was its weight. However, for this model it’s been dropped. It’s still not a featherweight by any means, but for a solid high miler it’s a huge improvement.
There’s good grip on offer and a depth of rubber to wear through. Put this on top of its solid build and you have a shoe that should go the distance. All in all, this is a lighter Nimbus with the same soft, stable ride – a great choice for post-season miles.
