ASICS® Gel-Nimbus 12
ASICS® has an extraordinary reputation for making quality running shoes. Hey, my first pair of running shoes were ASICS®! The “Gel” has a way of molding to your feet for a perfect fit. Made especially for the under-pronator, the ASICS® Gel-Nimbus 12 offers extra cushioning and increased stabilization for those long, long runs. The “I.G.S.®” which stands for “Impact Guidance System” improves on the runner’s foot movement naturally.
Made from breathable mesh, and a synthetic leather upper, this lightweight (only 11oz.) running shoe has it all. The Biomorphic Fit® may help reduce the irritation that many athletes feel after a long run. The Asymmetrical Lacing Design looks a little funny at first glance, but provides an optimal fit that may also aid in reducing foot discomfort.
The Asics Gel-Nimbus 12 also features a sock liner, known as the Removable ComforDry™. This technology helps to, well, keep the foot cool and dry – a nice way to say it has the potential to not stink!. The P.H.F. or “Personal Heel Fit®” is made from memory foam, which gives the runner the feeling of an extreme custom fit. The Asics Gel-Nimbus 12 offers all of this and more, such as gel cushioning and 3M™ fancy reflective markings on the running shoe.
This running shoe comes in a variety of colorful options – we dig the orange and black. Comfort, stability, traction are the top features in this shoe.
