Asics Gel-Nimbus 21

Asics Gel-Nimbus 21

Recently, I had a chance to try the Asics Gel-Nimbus 21 for two weeks right before the end of the year 2019. And by a bit coincidence, I also had at that time for testing Asics Gel-Cumulus 21. Therefore, I’d like to not only mention the advantages and drawbacks of these Nimbus 21 shoes, but also a bit compare the two models between each other. Let’s have a quick look at it.  My first question before putting Asics Gel-Nimbus 21…

Asics Gel-Cumulus 21

Asics Gel-Cumulus 21

My original plan was pretty clear. I wanted a model of running shoes from a well-known brand within a budget of 100 to 120 euros. As a trail runner, my vision was to get well-cushioned, higher quality, complementary running shoes that I would use next to my trail shoes, occasionally for running on the road. And because I use for my trail runs Asics Gel Sonoma 4, I decided to stay in this case loyal to Asics and purchased Asics…

Asics Gel Quantum Infinity

In the fall of last year, 2018, Asics came to the market with a completely new way of cushioning. The gel layer that was inserted into the midsole is in case of Asics Gel Quantum newly laid over the whole surface of the shoe. In comparison to previous Asics models that had only gel in the heel part, this main modification here will provide you with exceptionally strong cushioning and real softness at each tread when stepping forward. The quality…

Asics GEL-SONOMA 4

Despite not being a big fan of trail running shoes, I sometimes simply like to exchange the terrain and instead of comfortable park roads go for a wild run into the real forest. For such a situation when you go into a bit more wild and adventurous running terrain, Asics Gel Sonoma 4 are an ideal option. First of all, they surprised me by the firm top. A lot! After having them tested on 250 kilometers, I dare to say…

Asics DynaFlyte 2

Asics DynaFlyte 2

After the first model DynaFlyte from 2016, Asics didn´t let the customers wait for too long and the new DynaFlyte 2 successfully entered the market in 2017 as a successor of the first version. What does the second shoe show off in this case? Similarly to the first model of this product line, Asics bets on using the foam instead of gel for the overall midsole layer. That´s a really big difference for this shoe, because with other running shoes,…

Asics Gel Kayano 25

Having to find an appropriate pair of shoes for your leg imbalances might sometimes seem as a real struggle. If you take a look at most of the running shoes offered on the market, they are predominantly made just for neutral tread runners. But this is definitely not the case of Asics Gel Kayano 25, which is explicitly solving the problem of overpronators. As most of overpronators have wide, flat feet, it seems as if the producer really wanted to…
