Running is not about the distance you’ve covered; it’s about the hard work, the thrill of the challenge and the passion that got you to the finish line. Japanese footwear pioneer, ASICS, embodies that love for the sport through their innovative products that not only put running first, but also empower all runners of all levels. This year, ASICS celebrates two decades of their most popular running shoe with the new GEL-Nimbus 20.
With its supreme cushioning technology, the ASICS GEL-Nimbus shoe series is built for long distances and neutral runners. For its 20th edition, ASICS improves the model even further and dedicates it to those who have logged miles or just lacing up – because ASICS believes that “the run is in all of us”. Let’s find out more about the shoe that was 20 years in the making.
What athletes love about ASICS is its commitment to quality and comfort that’s backed by science, and the GEL-Nimbus 20 doesn’t disappoint. It continues the 19 years of GEL cushioning and lightweight mobility, but with more improvements. The FlyteFoam midsole technology uses organic super fibres for better bounce and responsiveness. The GEL-Nimbus shoe series is ideal for neutral runners or underpronators. And the GEL™ inserts in the forefoot and rearfoot, plus twin-layer FluidRide® cushioning absorb impact and allow easier foot movement.
The updates are more felt in the upper with its FluidFit® technology of gradient jacquard-mesh surface and 3D printed overlays, which improves the responsiveness while maintaining a comfortable fit. It adapts to your foot for a supportive and breathable fit throughout. ASICS’ unique Heel Clutching System (heel counter) stabilises the foot and improves support for a stronger run. Meanwhile, the seamless construction reduces friction and chances of discomfort.
The new colours of the GEL-Nimbus 20 are bold and bright, much like the spirit of the brand that’s serious about the sport, but can still dress it up in style. It comes in striking yellow with contrasting details, and strategic eyelets that disperse lace tension. It bears the milestone number “20” on the heel.
Don’t just run for the numbers, run for the passion. And run with the newly released ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20 Shoe with latest technology and improved fit – now available at Sun & Sand Sports online and the SSS app.
