Asics GEL-Nimbus 20 Barcelona Running Shoes
Celebrate the 2018 Barcelona Marathon with this limited edition Nimbus 20; a smooth, comfortable ride that’s 20 years in the making. The GEL-Nimbus honours its 20th anniversary with this limited edition colourway that features electro-plated hits and Asics’ revolutionary lightweight FlyteFoam cushioning. Packed with advanced technology from the ASICS Institute of Sports Science, the Nimbus caters to neutral runners of all levels. Its seamless, FluidFit upper stretches and adapts to your foot to give you a customised fit that keeps you going mile after mile.
Mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. The perforations in the fabric increase airflow to create a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. A seamless construction provides an irritation-free fit, reducing the risk of rubbing and blisters; because we know how those can ruin your day. Asics’ FluidFit upper technology combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapt to the foot, creating a truly customised, glove-like fit which eliminates millimetres of movement with each stride whilst minimising friction. 3D printed overlays provide smooth support without adding weight and bulk. The upper is tightened and loosened in certain areas to allow for the foot’s natural motion, working with you as you train for everything from morning runs to challenging marathons. The asymmetrical lacing system unites with an exoskeletal heel counter to guarantee perfect comfort and fit, especially in the ankle and heel area; they help to anchor you to the midsole and reduce in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides. An updated toe box yields increased flexibility, allowing for comfortable toe splay and a more efficient push-off. Independently placed eyelets disperse lace tension, contributing to the comfortable and customised fitting environment of the Gel-Nimbus 20.
A ComforDry sockliner cradles the foot with breathable, moisture-wicking ease, preventing the development of that distracting clammy feeling to keep you cool and motivated on longer distance days. Fluidride technology, a two layered midsole construction, features for a winning combination of cushioning and bounce-back. The luxurious SpEVA and Solyte material fusion results in comfort, durability and light weight, cushioning the foot from heel to toe throughout the gait cycle and supplying energy-packed bounce. This energy-return technology reduces the superfluous use of muscle power and therefore diminishes fatigue, keeping you driven for longer. Sitting beneath the Fluidride platform, and complimenting its bouncy nature, are the rearfoot and forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems. They work to reduce shock during the impact phase; sparing your joints as you sprint down onto unforgiving concrete, and allowing for a smooth transition to mid-stance. Still not quite content with their luxurious formulation, Asics play their ace card in lightweight cushioning: FlyteFoam. A third layer of protection, bounce and comfort: it provides you with unmatched shock absorption and a lively ride. FlyteFoam is the lightest cushioning material ASICS has ever made, 55% lighter than the industry standard, EVA, and it buffers against the ground to protect you from unnecessary stress and fatigue. Its reinforced, organic fibres let the material bounce back to its original shape after every run; so you can train harder, more frequently, for longer, without the worry that your shoes might not be able to take it. Resilient and winning, FlyteFoam technology lets you run with the feeling that your feet aren’t even touching the ground.
A Trusstic System has been implemented to reduce the weight of the sole unit and link the forefoot and rearfoot, working alongside the Guidance Line technology to encourage a more consistent, directional gait. A DuraSponge outsole completes the Asics Gel Nimbus 20, supplying EVEN MORE cushioning and durability. AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Resistant rubber) has been strategically placed in high-stress areas to supply excellent grip without compromising the shoe’s permanence. Everything has been thought of to provide you with the most reliable, comfortable running shoe. The Asics Gel Nimbus 20, giving you absolutely no excuse not to run.
