Who should buy the Asics Gel Nimbus 24

Promising cloud-like comfort that lasts for miles, the 24th version of the Asics Gel Nimbus is a perfect fit for runners looking for a: 

  • daily trainer
  • neutral running shoe
  • long-distance shoe 
  • road running shoe

Who should NOT buy it

If you're looking for a speed trainer or a cheap running shoe, the Asics Gel Nimbus 24 is not for you. 

Asics Gel Nimbus 24 vs. 23

Although featuring a complete redesign, the Gel Nimbus 24 remains as Asics' luxurious daily running shoe from its training line. From the upper to the midsole, the 24th edition delivers comfort paired with a lighter and livelier construction. 

Less weight

Contrary to the Gel Nimbus 23, the Gel Nimbus 24 sheds off weight (10.9 oz vs 10.2 oz in US M 9). This is all owed to the:

  • trimmed-down heel
  • lighter midsole
  • shaved-down outsole

Amped-up comfort

Sporting the same midsole as the Asics Novablast 2, the Gel Nimbus' Flyte Foam Blast cushion offers a softer feel minus the weight. 

Complementing it is the Gel tech that's also less firm to pronounce the shoe's cushiness even more. 

And in the upper, a full-knit gusseted tongue creates a premium wrap around the foot. 

More pep with Nimbus 24

The Flyte Foam Blast is not only cozier, it's also bouncier. It highlights the shoe's responsiveness, especially during toe-off. 

Adding stability without the bulk

For extra underfoot support, the shoe's Trusstic System is sandwiched between the midsole foam. It has a lighter composition, adhering to the shoe's featherweight design.
