Have the confidence to push your run further with the ASICS Asics Gel-Nimbus 21 (4E) Running Shoes. Reinvented for maximum comfort and a perfect fit.

ASICS made this pair of shoes extra-wide because not everyone has small, narrow feet. So if you’re looking for a durable, comfortable, but also stylish shoe, I think the ASICS GEL-NIMBUS 21 is for you.

 In this article, I will be talking about the Pros and Cons,  Features and all the things that you need to know before buying the ASICS GEL-NIMBUS 21.

The ASICS GEL-NIMBUS 21 I would say, arguably has one of the best shock absorption systems compared to other running sneakers that claim they have this feature.

  • Sleek & Stylish for



  • Previous Buyers Have Complained That They Expected More Of This Version Of The Shoe And The Older Versions Were Actually Of Higher Quality.
  • Some Customer Reviews Indicate That The Shoe Is Too Narrow In The Midfoot Although It Claims to Be ‘Extra-Wide’.


In Conclusion, it would be that the ASICS GEL-NIMBUS 21 is a great comfortable shoe and is perfect for longer runs.

It also comes at a medium price point compared to other shoes of the same quality. It seems that it isn’t as wide as described so I suggest buying an extra half size bigger. This is to make sure that there is enough room for your foot to breathe.

According to previous buyers, the sole isn’t very soft and is “lacking in cushioning”. But I still think that if you’re a cross country or long-distance runner I think that the ASICS GEL-NIMBUS 21 is perfect for you.
