First impressions of the ASICS Gel Nimbus 20
Disclosure, before I even start my review
I am an ASICS Running Influencer, and, on the advice of my running coach & an excellent ASICS store manager, I chose the new Gel Nimbus 20, in which to run and train.
A couple of weeks earlier, I had bought the DynaFlyte3 & I alternate between these 2 pairs in my runs, as I prepare for a half marathon this week, a full in January and another full in February.
Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be putting in a lot of mileage together.
I must point out that ASICS has placed me under no obligation whatsoever to write a review, favourable or otherwise, of these shoes.
So, what do I think about these shoes so far?
I have run 119.5km in my Gel Nimbus 20 (shall we call it 120km for simplicity’s sake?!) and am totally and utterly in love with these shoes.
I have run in my Nimbus 20s on several different terrains in New Delhi, India, where I live – roads, parks, tracks, grass, & even some outdoor gym equipment, and the cushioning of these shoes, especially on the roads, is brilliant. Absolutely fantastic.
Just take a look at the cushioning on the heel:)
The shoes felt totally comfortable from the word go, and I have had no teething problems. They feel super light, despite the solid heel cushioning.
Here are some technical specs that I downloaded from a website called dickssportinggoods.com
I find the shoes light, as I said, and surprisingly sleek.
They offer great support and I love the look of them. They are discreet, with the logo only hinted at on the sides. Love the feel & look of the laces (if that doesn’t sound strange!)
Obviously I am totally in love with the colour 🙂
So, 120km together.
We have many more kilometres to go, many of them on the hard, unforgiving Indian roads, so I’ll report back after we’ve run together some more.
But so far, so good.
