Top Reasons to Buy the Women’s ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20

The ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20 for women offers a higher heel drop, so if you’re a heel-strike runner, this one’s for you. This feature also makes the Nimbus 20 a standout choice for women seeking relief from Achilles tension.

Are your feet on the slightly wider side? The new women’s ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20 toe box has been expanded to provide extra room but it boasts the same top-notch cushioning and support that was loved in its predecessor.

The women’s GEL-Nimbus 20 features ASICS’s patented FlyteFoam and gel cushioning technology, which when combined, offer you some of the best impact absorption and bounce back that you can find.

What People Are Saying About ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20

Reviewers have commented that the ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20 for women is comfortable and that they appreciate its sleek design. Now you can look good and feel good.

The toe box update has received some major nods of approval. You’ll score a roomier fit that prevents your toes from uncomfortably bunching up during your run.

Be prepared to break these bad boys in. Some say the ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20 feel a little stiff out of the box, but once the cushioning adapts to your foot, you’ll feel like the shoe was made just for you.

ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20 Updates

The ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20 is the latest iteration of the popular GEL-Nimbus lineup, and this road running shoe fulfills its legacy of awesomeness. The newest women’s model features the Plus 3 midsole technology for even more comfort, along with an additional 3mm in height to reduce tension on the Achilles tendon.

One of the most noticeable updates in GEL-Nimbus 20’s lightweight design - it’s shed some serious weight. It also features a roomier toe box and redesigned upper so you can score an improved fit.

Size and Fit of the ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20

General Size and Fit

Go up one half size from your true foot size when purchasing your GEL-Nimbus women’s shoes and choose between three widths: narrow, normal, and wide.


The upper of the ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20 combines a lightweight feel with supportive structure, so your feet feel secure without being bogged down. The upper is crafted with the signature FluidFit mesh, woven with organic fibers that hug the top of the foot like a glove. You can thank it for that fantastic air flow you’ll feel with every stride.


The midsole of women’s GEL-Nimbus 20 is constructed with the Flytefoam material that ASICS loyalists love so much. It’s delivers responsiveness upon foot landing with just the right amount of bounce back. This foam is less compressive, meaning your shoes will last you longer and give you more value.


Women’s ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20 shoes are highly cushioned and deserve an A in shock absorption. Combine the impressive ASICS gel technology with the vertical flex grooves in the outsole to cash in on comfortable flexibility.
