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

Supercharge your sprints with the innovative FlyteFoam® midsole technology of the Gel-Nimbus 20. The organic super fibers provide increased bounce-back and responsiveness so you can spring forward with more energy than ever before.

Guide your stride with innovative Trusstic® System technology. This integrated system enhances your gait efficiency and gently corrects your strike pattern for a seamless transition between the toe-off and heel-strike.

Need a little extra support? The exoskeletal Heel Clutching System reinforces the durable upper with an extra layer of stability that prevents your ankle from rolling and firmly locks your foot into place.

What People Are Saying About the Men’s ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20

Reviewers praised the breathable FluidFit® mesh upper of the GEL-Nimbus 20 for keeping their feet cool no matter how hot the competition got. The Ortholite® Lasting also helps wick away moisture to ensure a dry interior, keeping runners in humid climates comfortable during their routine.

Several men noted the GEL-Nimbus 20 helped alleviate back and hip pain that they usually experienced while running. A dual GEL® cushioning system in the rear and forefoot work to disperse the shock of repeated impact to not only alleviate pain, but to prevent future development of foot problems such as plantar fasciitis.

Don’t sacrifice aesthetics for athletics when you can have both. Runners enjoyed the variety of sporty color schemes the Gel-Nimbus 20 is offered in, and many men said they felt confident wearing a shoe that looked just as fast as it performed.

Men’s ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20 Updates

Conquer roads you never thought you’d go down in the 20th iteration of the renowned GEL-Nimbus line from ASICS. A redesigned mesh upper wraps the foot in a single piece of adaptable, ventilated fabric, ensuring a comfortable full-foot feeling. Discrete eyelets disperse the tension of tight shoelaces so you can achieve a customizable level of comfort. And to top it all off? The cushy FlyteFoam® midsole is 55% lighter than traditional midsole materials – so you can spring into action faster than ever before.

Size and Fit of the Men’s ASICS GEL-Nimbus 20

General Size and Fit

The Gel-Nimbus 20 features a 10mm heel-to-toe drop. It is available in three width size: men’s normal, men’s wide, and men’s extra wide. Fit experts recommend buying a half size up from your true foot size.


Don’t let scratchy shoes get you down – the irritant-free 3D Printed overlays on the Gel-Nimbus 20 ensure silky smooth comfort that’s fit for a king. Paired with the exoskeletal heel counter mentioned above, you’ll barely notice you’re wearing shoes as you pound the pavement.


Tired of stinky feet? The ComforDry X-40 sockliner wards off odor-causing bacteria so your feet stay fresh no matter how sweaty you get. Coupled with FluidRide® technology, the Gel-Nimbus 20 propels you forward with a natural strike pattern, cloud-like cushioning, and a level of responsiveness perfect for running novices and seasoned pros alike.


Combining the powers of FlyteFoam and High Abrasion Rubber, the GEL-Nimbus 20 resists the wear-and tear of everyday use so you can make this your go-to shoe.
