Gear Pick of the Week: ASICS Gel Nimbus 13

ASICS Gel Nimbus 13 (£115)

Kerry says: Have you been told you have a medium arch, normal foot and average gait... in short, that nothing that stands out about your feet?! If so, the ASICS Gel Nimbus 13 may be your perfect running shoe.

A wide platform with plenty of support makes it a good choice for runners with many different gaits, foot types and running styles. It's a universal shoe with plenty of cushion but a light midsole material. ASICS's trademark gel at the front and rear of the shoe provide optimal shock absorption.

Not only do the asymmetrical laces look cool, they also ensure a comfortable fit and, coupled with discreet eyelets and a sock liner, eliminate blisters and skin irritation.

The Gel Nimbus is an old favourite, and the 13th version has updated and improved on this winning formula for the perfect balance between performance and comfort. Perhaps the biggest upgrade is new forefront cushioning specific to the men's model. The shoe also comes in a female-specific version, also called the Gel Nimbus 13, now with an even more lightweight outsole.
