Faster and lighter than a firebolt.

Fly down the roads with the Asics Men's Gel-Nimbus 17 Running Shoe keeping you feeling good for as many miles as you want. Its nearly seamless FluidFit upper uses multi-directional stretch mesh and reinforcements that adapt to your foot for a sock-like fit. The ComforDry X-40 sockliner provides enhanced rebound cushioning, excellent moisture management, high-level breathability, and odor-resistant comfort.

Underfoot, Asics added its ever-popular Gel cushioning systems at the rearfoot and forefoot for supreme shock-attenuation. The FluidRide midsole bounces back at each step and ensures long-lasting cushioning. Guidance Line and Trusstic Systems work together to encourage a natural gait for neutral runners or underpronators. This techy running shoe also features an exoskeletal Heel Clutching System for extra heel support and an improved fit.

Perfect to me!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 8.5

Good shoes, design is really cool, they fit perfect for me. I have one improvement point: I would recommend my previous Nimbus 15. It had better cushioning than this new pair

Favorite for running

I got these for my husband. He has had other asics shoes and when his old ones wore out he knew he wanted these ones. They have good support and are great for his running.

Great so far

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I’m not the most experience runner, but they feel awesome. Good for training in the street, competition and for running downhill.

Good cushion and great comfort.

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

This shoe has a standard 10mm drop making it perfect for those with a lower arch. It does have a great cushion on it and is meant to last those longer miles. It has a standard fit and is great for both short and long distances. As with any other running shoe, I recommend going at least half a size to a full size up from your normal street shoe.

Which country produces?

Hi there,

Asics utilizes hundreds of production facilities-- their shoes are produced in China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Japan, and Cambodia.

Hope this helps!
