How it differs from its predecessors and runs is something Keller Sports Pro Jan has been taking a closer look at over the past few weeks.
About the ASICS GEL-Nimbus 23
ASICS already took a big step with the predecessor. The Laufschuhe focus on comfort remained, but in a lighter construction. This is also evident in the latest version of the ASICS Nimbus. Of course, GEL elements are used again in the new Nimbus 23.
These are complemented in the midsole with FLYTEFOAM Propel technology. The result is a very comfortable ride. For support, ASICS has reworked the upper to provide better support.
This is also supported by the mesh in the entire ASICS Laufschuh, which also ensures good freedom of movement thanks to its construction. The structure of the outsole not only provides a good grip, but the flex grooves in particular ensure a pleasant running feeling.
How does the ASICS GEL-Nimbus 23 perform?
When you slip them on for the first time, you immediately get that typical Nimbus feeling and you can feel the high level of comfort. This is ensured by a very padded upper and the pleasant materials in the upper.
Nevertheless, the material in the forefoot is relatively thin and therefore offers good freedom of movement. This is directly noticeable on the running track. You are not restricted in the rollover behaviour and it is simply easy to run.
Of course, the cushioning feeling remains high, because as described, there is a lot of soft foam in the midsole. Nevertheless, it is pleasantly noticeable that you do not permanently sink into the running shoe and the foot can roll naturally.
This is especially due to the flexible outsole, which gives you a secure running feeling with every step. The ASICS GEL-Nimbus 23 provides good support via the heel cap. This can help on longer training runs when the muscles get tired.

The new ASICS GEL-Nimbus 23 does not impress with innovations or new features. It remains true to its DNA and is one of the most comfortable running shoes on the market.
The added dynamic in the latest version is really good for it. This makes it an all-rounder for every runner and for the quieter units over all distances.
