For a legendary plush ride and the support you need, the GEL-Nimbus 18 will have you running on air.

      I wish I had discovered Asiacs Gel Nimbus a long time ago. This running shoe is so cushy whereas my old shoe felt like I was running on cardboard. Also I now have two pair thanks to RunningShoes.com savings! I look forward to more!
