The Asics Gel-Nimbus 24 is a lightweight, responsive, and well-cushioned running shoe designed for road running. Thanks to the FF Blast+ foam cushioning along the midsole, the Gel-Nimbus 24 weighs 10-grams less than the previous version and is noticeably more responsive and flexible. According to users, the rearfoot and forefoot gel technology does a great job of absorbing impact, allowing your foot to easily move through its natural gait.
Available in 18 colors for the women’s version and 15 colors for the men’s, the Asics Gel-Nimbus 24 offers a smooth ride in a shoe that is as attractive as it is functional. The material used for the outsole rubbers is reportedly lighter and stronger which reduces the weight of the shoe without sacrificing integrity. Other features include an OrthoLiner X-55 footliner and reflective detail for those runs that occur in dimmer lighting.
A common theme among reviews is the disappointing upper. While the upper is a mesh that allows for maximum breathability, it reportedly feels less sturdy than the previous model’s upper. Unfortunately, this shoe costs more than the Gel-Nimbus 23 (not surprising).
