ASICS Gel Nimbus 17 Review
Before we see some upgrades of the shoes from the predecessor, we need to firstly see who the ASICS Gel Nimbus 17 is for. It is a neutral shoe that is completed with stability features, including the heel counter that help the heel centered in the right position.
However, this feature is not enough to be recommended for those who are looking for shoes with serious stability. Therefore, the shoes are better for neutral runners. Heavy runners are also good with the shoes because they feature great cushioning system that helps absorb some forces and the counter balance for more comfortable run.
There are some changes added to the new version of ASICS Gel Nimbus. Although the upgrades are fairly minor, they make a good change for the new shoes model. The upgrades are focused on the shoe stability. There are some upgrades included, such as the X-40 Sockliner and Comfort Dry Lasting.
The make the Gel Nimbus 17 have more comfort and fitting. Those features make the shoe able to mold very comfortably. When the users slip the shoes on, they will feel the comfort.
The cushioning is excellent, however, we found that the previous model, Gel Nimbus 15 had better cushion than the next models. But at least, the cushioning is still excellent because when the shoes are used to run about 8 miles long, the users will not find any pain or soreness in their feet and knees.
Unlike the other ordinary shoes with less optimal cushion, the new Gel Nimbus 17 gives better comfort and protection. The cushion for the Gel Nimbus 17 would be probably a sponge.
In addition, the shoes are designed based on certain excellent technicalities. As previously mentioned, the shoes have good weight. They are light enough to run, although some other shoes are lighter.
However, the excellent cushioning and stability features added to the shoes do not make them feel heavier. Completed with a very good breathability, the shoes are very comfortable.
