I am extremely disappointed in Asics. I have purchased over 30 pairs of Nimbus shoes and run marathons in all 50 states wearing them. I have attributed my success as a runner to finding good quality shoes that provided a firm but flexible, neutral running solution for a larger but higher mile runner. I have carefully tracked mileage and durability over the years and have actual data (on a spread sheet that includes mileage from every run on each pair of shoes that shows how the shoe performance has changed over the years. So, I have been disenchanted with what I perceive as cheapening of this shoe over the past few versions. The 23 simply sucks and will be the last I buy. You have ruined a great shoe. I encourage you to go back about 10 generations and look at what a great running shoe looks and performs like as these newer ones just miss the mark. It may be more profitable to sell to casual runners or those looking to make a fashion statement but comes at the detriment of previously loyal runners.
I have the Ventures and Nimbus 22's. These shoes are way more comfortable. Instantly, I felt the difference. I suffered with plantar fasciitis. Now, after wearing the shoes for a week and a half, I don't have anymore pain.
I bought the shoes a little over a month ago at first few runs I was very happy with it whoever, I recently did a 10k run and upon returning home I notice a hole in the toe box area I didn't except that to happen this quick. Overall it's not a bad shoes but, its not durable if you run a lot.
I've been a die-hard ASICS fan for 10+ years and have convinced many of my friends to make the switch, but... never again. I have no idea what ASICS was thinking but they took a fantastic shoe in the Gel-NIMBUS 22 and completely ruined it. (To preface the rest of this review, I'll be making a lot of comparisons between these, the 23's, and the previous version, the 22's
Where to start? They're a completely different style of shoe than the Gel-NIMBUS 22. The 22's are rigid, supportive, and sturdy but still comfortable with just the right amount of cushion... that's not the case with the 23's. At all. They changed everything. The 23's are basically like every other "running shoe" on the market right now - very cushiony without much actual support so when you run, it's very 'gummy'. They're made with a noticeably cheaper material (especially the foam on the mid-sole) which makes me think they'll end up lasting maybe half as long as the 22's. They're more like a slip-on shoe than an actual running sneaker. Unbelievably disappointed. Thankfully I was still able to return the shoes after a few runs and buy a new pair of the Gel-NIMBUS 22's to hold me over until ASICS (hopefully) fixes this disaster.
I have run in the Asics shoes since my first pair of Nimbus 15's. I run a lot of 5K and 10K races so I like a shoe that is light weight but still has good support. The new Nimbus 23 is a very comfortable shoe with plenty of cushioning . This has been an excellent running shoe that I would recommend .
I am a huge fan of this sneaker. I love the cushioning, fit, stability, and comfort.
I am not a runner. I may occasionally jog but I use these to walk primarily and they will be used when I return to the gym after the pandemic. This is what I am basing my review on.
This is my first pair of Nimbus and my third overall sneaker from Asics. I like the cushioning the most. It has a very nice bounce to it and the landing when I step down is pretty soft.
My feet feel secure and aren't sliding around.
They fit true to size. I wear a 9 and this is a perfect fit. I have I guess "normal" feet. They aren't wide or really narrow and I don't struggle putting them on or taking them off. I'm not wedging my feet in or yanking it off when I return home.
To me the shoe doesn't feel heavy. I think it is fairly light.
The color selection is solid. I love the green/black.
I am really happy with the Nimbus 23 and would certainly consider getting a second pair down the road.
They looked a little too narrow as I have wide feet however don't judge a book by it's cover because I put these things on and they are probably the cushiest shoes I've ever worn, I've only worn them around the house so far cuz I just got them today but they are super cushiony and they look like they're very well made I like them they earn five stars
I think it is a fantastic shoe but as the other reviewer I do agree it is slightly tight at first. I I I I did notice some people complain about the tightness - I agree with it but the mesh does stretches after a few wears. For me, it was the color that bothered me the most. In the picture, it has beautiful shades, tones, and coloration, but in reality, it is dull, and a bit cheap looking grey, honestly not as pictured at all. I bought the grey once with blue overtones and yellow soles. Now I regret it.
Very excited to try Nimbus 23, the style and comfort are exactly what you'd expect from Asics. Unfortunately, these shoes are quite narrow and very tight around the forefoot - I lost feeling in my feet after only a few minutes. Also not a lot of room around the toes.
Every time I am tempted away to an alternate shoe I regret it. The Nimbus is the best all round shoe I have every used and I will stay faithful whilst they keep improving whilst staying true to the proven formula.
