Asics Gel Nimbus 23: A traditional feel with a modern look 

A long-standing neutral daily shoe series from Asics, the Gel Nimbus is now on its 23rd iteration. The Asics Gel Nimbus 23 keeps the classics while featuring minimal updates. This is to maintain the line’s signature maximalist, impact-absorbing design while amplifying support and comfort, layered with a more modern approach in its exterior. 

Gel Nimbus 23 vs 22: What are the changes? 

To keep the Nimbus’ hallmark, the Gel Nimbus is only revamped minimally. Given the changes, here is how it compares to the Asics Gel Nimbus 22: 

Improved cushioning. The heel of the shoe sports more Gel than its predecessor. With this, a softer ride with an upped impact absorption is created. 

Enhanced stability. To create more surefooted, steady runs, the midsole of the running shoe is improved to be more supportive.  

Softer upper. Targeted for all-out comfort, the engineered mesh upper of the shoe ensures a plusher, zero-irritation ride. 

Sustainability-driven design. To achieve this, the upper of the daily runner has been crafted with recycled materials to minimize waste.

Where can I use it? 

  • Easy-paced runs
  • Daily runs
  • Long-distance runs
