Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a runner and have tried several brands over the years - the best fit for me has been Asics. For the past 6 - 7 years I have been buying the Asics Gel-Cumulus (about 3 pairs a year). After so many miles on my feet and legs I don't recover a fast as I used to. I decided to upgrade to the Gel-Nimbus - what a difference! In a side by side comparison at a shoe store, the Gel-Nimbus had noticeably more cushioning. I'm on my 3rd pair of Gel Nimbus - they last longer for me and I won't go back to a less cushioned shoe (even the insole is thicker). I can get in more miles, with less pain. I spent a week hiking canyons in death valley last November and alternated with hiking boots. The Gel-Nimbus held up fine. Great for walking around town on concrete too, especially on vacations.
