The Nimbus 2000 is years ahead of these in terms of performance.

Man.... I love Nimbus and have used them since back to Nimbus 9's, but they get uglier and uglier by the year. I kinda grew to like the 16's superbright color schemes, but these 17's are all atrocious. Sure.. it's only looks and I mostly don't care about that, but these colors look so "gay".
i have a red pair of 15s and have been looking for ones a little more neutral color-wise. i consider bright coloring more offending than webbing designs, so these are just what i'm looking for.

in for a pair. thanks, OP.

I assume you are referring to the GT-2000.... no such thing as Nimbus 2000.

They are different shoes for different types of runners. Nimbus is for a neutral runner and are great for high mileage runners.... it's basically the best Asics running sneaker for a neutral runner (which I happen to be), and many serious runners would argue that historically the Nimbus line is the best neutral running sneaker ever.

GT-2000 (all versions of it) are for mild pronators and not meant for those who are putting in seriously high amounts of miles. Kayano is better for those who need pronation support and intend on doing maximum mileage.

Running sneakers don't perform... the athlete does.

Would the Nimbus be good for an Underpronator? I have a very big arch and definitely fall in this category. (Never heard of the word until your post and found a good article explaining. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.)

You'll literally fly down the roads with the Nimbus 2000.

Yes, Nimbus works well for those who are underpronators. If you have severe underpronation and find that there is still not enough cushioning in the Nimbus, I would recommend trying on the Gel Cumulus. Those shoes are like walking on soft beach sand... so much cushioning all over that it's borderline sloppy for longer distance runners and is probably best for those who are doing more casual running < 25 miles per week. I haven't tried on the newer Cumulus though, this is based on older models from a few years ago but Asics tends to hold true to their model lines and target customers as their shoes progress from generation to generation.

You might want to go down to a running shoe store and see if there is anyone knowledgeable on the staff there that can take a look at the wear pattern on your current shoes and also quickly look at your stride and foot plant pattern to see if they can give you a quick analysis on how severe your underpronation is and provide some feedback on what shoes they might recommend. Just bear in mind that they may not be as much of an expert as they sound like, so if their advice seems contradictory to your common sense or what you've read online, don't be afraid to seek other help from another employee either on a different day or at a different store.

Once you find a shoe that you're really happy with, it's usually best to stick with it.. especially if you plan on doing a lot of miles.

A great place to buy shoes online is www.KellysRunningWarehouse.com and www.holabirdsports.com. Sign up for the mailing list at Kellys and you'll get coupon codes mailed to you on a weekly basis. Both of those sites also offer cash-back from the various rebate websites as well. I usually buy my sneakers whenever the ones I want are on a good sale and well before I need a new pair so that they are ready to go when my mileage is up on the current pairs.

It's funny you suggest that as I happen to have an old pair of Gel Cumulus on right now. I do like them a lot but it's time for replacements. Thanks again!

I agree with most things you have stated but Cumulus line is less cushioning than Nimbus. I have tried on Cumulus but never ran with it. I ran a marathon with Nimbus, and it held up well. Like stated above, Nimbus is the most cushioning Asics line for neutral runners.

It's from Harry Potter. The Nimbus 2000 is the broom Professor McGonagall gives to Harry.

Thanks! I about bought these shoes as I'm training for my first half marathon. Ended up going with a more expensive pair originally and while I like them, it'll be nice to have these for a back up now!

Please go to a local running store and get fitted for the proper type of shoes. Randomly picking a deal off the internet is a great way to get injured.

If you don't want to support your local shop, you could always use their advice and then shop online. My local shop offers so many perks that I think it's worth supporting them even if their shoes are 15-20 more expensive. you may find the same.

Never seen or maybe I have not looked for these Local shop....

I deviated away from Nimbus for a year and paid the ultimate price, a foot injury that is slowly getting better after two months. Looking forward to going back to Nimbus again when the price is right, right now using an old Nimbus 15.

I tried the Cumulus and was running on thread mil at number 12 speed and pulled something in my right foot. Maybe it is not the shoes, but never had a foot injury before until I switch model.

I think this year's model looks the best out of all the Nimbus era.
