To celebrate two decades of the Gel-Nimbus series, Japanese sports equipment manufacturer Asics is introducing a new edition of its most popular long-distance running shoe, the Gel-Nimbus 20, that is lightest in its family and ideal for both amateur and professional runners.

With the Gel technology, this new model is designed with cushioning and lightweight comfort aimed to give runners their best performance from start to finish. The combination of its patented FlyteFoam midsole inserts with Gel Technology gives the shoe superior cushioning, shock absorption and a lightweight feel with every step.

Built for runners of every stride, the collection features the new Gradient Jacquard Mesh structure, designed with strategic 3D printed overlays that seamlessly wrap and support the foot throughout your run. The new feature on the upper also gives feet a great fit and breathability. The shoes are priced at Bt6,500. 

“The Gel-Nimbus is a shoe with nearly 20 years of history. There’s a very good reason for this – since its debut in 1999, the Gel-Nimbus has managed to deliver against runners’ highest expectations and help them achieve their personal bests. It has always been designed to offer runners superior cushioning without excess weight,” said Gerard Klein, senior general manager, global performance running footwear, Asics Corporation.

“Our goal with the new Gel-Nimbus is literally to make runners feel so light and comfortable, they feel like they’re running on a cloud. Every year Asics raises its aspirations even higher, and we will continue to innovate and develop the Gel-Nimbus series.”
