My Favorite Things - ASICS Gel Nimbus 17 #Giveaway



For my third Favorite Things giveaway, I am bringing you my all time favorite running shoe, the ASICS Gel Nimbus 17. I started running in the Nimbus 13 and have owned every version of it since.
The shoe has evolved over the years to what I think is the perfect running shoe and if you don't believe me, Runners World awarded it the 2015 Editors Choice.
The Gel Nimbus 17 went through a major overhaul from the previous model. The shoe was built specifically for neutral runners and underpronators and has gender specific cushioning. The women's model features a lower density top layer in the midsole, allowing female athletes to better enjoy the benefits of midsole compression. The ladies version also has 3mm of additional height to help relieve Achilles tension.
The Nimbus 17 is the lightest Nimbus to date, weighing in at only 8.8 oz for ladies and 10.8oz for men. It's the best of both worlds, a cushioned lightweight shoe. This is all thanks to FluidRide® - which provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability. The Nimbus 17 also offers Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning Systems, which reduces shock during impact and toe-off phases.

I am giving away 1 pair of ASICS Gel Nimbus 17 as part of my Favorite Things giveaway. Let me know in a comment below what your first running shoe was.

  7. Mine we an Asics shoe as well. I have no idea the name but being that it was in the aught-2000's the shoe was bulky, white, and the Asics logo was blue. I actually only donated those shoes about 8 months ago. I found them collecting dust in the far back corner of my closet!
