I walk three miles a day on an asphalt bike path. I have always worn New Balance shoes, but my feet were always burning when I neared the end of my walk. I decided that I needed more cushioning and decided to try these ASICS because of the gel cushioning. My feet are loving these ASICS. I have had them for about 1 month and they are the best shoes I have ever worn.
I used the Gel Nimbus 15s to train for a marathon over the summer. A month from race day, they were getting worn down, so I bought the 16s to replace them.
Compared to the 15, the Gel Nimbus 16 is less cushy, and has a touch more support. Definitely still a neutral shoe. Overall I think it's a bit more comfortable to run in, the old shoes could get kind of ponderous and squishy. I would say it's like taking the soft touring tires off a Buick and putting tires with firmer sidewalls on. Same basic ride, but the car feels more planted with more control.
I did a ten miler right out of the gate in these shoes, and my knees, legs, and feet felt great after. If you liked the 15s, I suspect you'd like these. I wouldn't suggest them to people who buy expensive running shoes to just walk around in, but I would think most runners who liked the old shoes would love these.
High arches or supination (under-pronation)? These are probably the best running shoes you will find. ASIC's Gel Nimbus and Gel Cumulus are so great, nobody else seems to even try and compete. I'm 44 years old, run 3 miles/day and have supination issues. Have been using Gel Cumulus with no troubles, Gel Nimbus seem to be even cushier. Asics seems to be more concerned about runners with "odd" feet than other manufacturers, highly recommend both the gel Cumulus and Gel Nimbus.
