When designing the new GEL-Nimbus 17, ASICS opted for a little more revolution than evolution. Serious weight reduction takes center stage, with a nearly seamless FluidFit upper that fits and feels like a runner's dream. The new FluidRide midsole and extended Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning system improve upon the already famously plush and luxurious ride.
- FluidRide provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability.
- Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
- ASICS FluidFit upper technology combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapt to the athlete's foot, creating a truly customized glove-like fit.
- Exoskeletal heel counter provides improved support and creates improved heel fitting environment.
- The use of seamless materials reduces the potential for irritation and friction caused by traditional stitches and seams.
- Independently placed eyelets disburse lace tension, creating a customized fitting environment and enhanced upper comfort.
- This Trusstic System integrates Guidance Line construction for enhanced gait efficiency while providing midfoot structural integrity.
- This premium insole features plush underfoot comfort while providing excellent moisture management, high-level breathability, and anticrobial properties.
- Weight: 10.8 oz. Heel Height: 23mm. Forefoot Height: 13mm.
