What is the best feature of the ASICS GEL-NIMBUS™25?
The ASICS GEL-NIMBUS™ is a legendary product famous for its superior comfort and the 25th iteration promises a revolution in comfort.
Comfort is by far the #1 consideration for runners when purchasing new running shoes, so this innovative design is the brand’s most comfortable GEL-NIMBUS™ yet.
Why are ASICS so confident that the GEL-NIMBUS™25 is their most comfortable shoe yet?
ASICS commissioned Dr Chris Bishop from The Biomechanics Lab, South Australia, to deliver an independent comfort test against three leading competitor shoes and its predecessor the GEL-NIMBUS™24.
This 8-week study used 130 pairs of shoes, involving 100 runners, who each ran a total of 250km over 25 hours.
The result was conclusive: the GEL-NIMBUS™25 was the most comfortable shoe tested in the study. These results have enabled ASICS to develop a strong claim about the superior levels of comfort for this shoe, allowing them to validate that: Nothing feels better than the GEL-NIMBUS™25.
What exactly makes this new shoe so comfortable?
The GEL-NIMBUS™25 features new PureGEL™ technology, which is softer and lighter than previous GEL™ technology, delivering enhanced shock absorption, softer landings and smoother transitions. This shoe is lightweight and energetic, with FF BLAST™PLUS ECO cushioning in the midsole, which means 20% more foam underfoot for ASICS’ most cushioned ride yet.
It also has a new soft, stretchy knit tongue and collar construction to deliver an easier step-in and a more adaptive fit.
How does it differ from the ASICS GEL-NIMBUS 24?
This shoe weighs 290g, the same as its predecessor but is does look like a completely different shoe. Aside from technological advances, the major change is the difference is in stack height and drop. The GEL-NIMBUS™25 has an 8mm drop, compared to the GEL-NIMBUS™24 at 10mm. It also has a different midsole curve and a greater total stack height, due to the inclusion of FF Blast+, which means extra foam in a lighter package for more cushioning underfoot.
To conclude, if you’re looking for a premium road shoe with maximum cushioning and maximum comfort, then look no further, because nothing feels better than the ASICS GEL-NIMBUS™25.
