Asics GEL Nimbus 10
Added support, asymmetrical lacing and a discrete heel unit make this a more stable model than its predecessors.

Our Review

Like the Cumulus, this has been given more Gel cushioning and a discrete heel unit for better stability. The lacing has been changed so it’s asymmetrical to take pressure off the top of your foot, and the heel is cut differently for comfort and fit. The changes to this shoe ...  Continue reading

good shoe want to prote4ct my back and the cushioning seems to do this Continue reading...
A good shoe, but be careful about assuming that because you've done well in some ASICS that another model will be OK. Why change something that works? Continue reading...
Massive drop since Nimbus 9. Waiting for Nimbus 11 now Continue reading...
this pair seemed to force the foot to under pronate too much and then started to cause a lot of problems. not sure if i got a bad pair but it's like running on the sides of your feet. Don't know why they change Continue reading...


Please please help! Any recommendations which is the best out of these shoes! I wear orthotics and have suffered from hip/knee pain. Is any of them better, worse than the other? Looking at latest womens nimbus v. new balance 1062. Med weight runner I think 8 and quarter stone so didn't know if this made a difference? x

i have been running in the new balance 1062 since july this year. i wear orthotics and they fit no problem. i find them really comfortable, i like a lot of forefoot cushioning and certainly have no complaints there either.

i use them both on road and on forest paths.

hope this helps.

happy running!

Asics tend to be a narrow fit, NB and Brookes tend to be wider with Saucony somewhere in the middle.

At least, that's how I've found it.

Asics have never yet let me down (apart for the 210's I had to send back, but they replaced them with a pair of Kayano shoes so I didn't mind at all.)

I wear Orthotics and wear NB.  I have never had a better shoe.  They are a wider fit and have more toe room and are relatively light.

I think exercies would improve your knee/hip problem.  I have ordered some more NB's and these will be the 4th pair so far.

I had NB 1062s as my previous pair and they were lovely.  Really well cushioned.  I have morton's neuromas, so need a lot of cushioning and these fitted the bill perfectly.

Never tried asics, they're too narrow for my feet.  NB come in 2 width fittings, so might be more accomodating for your orthotics.
