Asics GEL-Nimbus 19.

The GEL-Nimbus 19 is an exceptional running shoe that combines innovative performance and style, marking yet another coup in Asics’ long history in producing some of the best footwear in the market.

The shoe offers cushioning, stability and great grip on the ground to help you get the best out of your athletic performance.

Having competed in many half marathons over the past three years, these runners up there with the best I’ve used so far. Not only are the Asics’ breathable but they are designed for the long-haul, meaning they won’t tear apart like other shoes over a short space of time.

What strikes me about the GEL-Nimbus 19 is how the cushioning softens the impact while you run. Other shoes don’t offer enough support so your feet always feel heavy when you land. With the cushioning on offer in this model, you can run with comfort and confidence.

The price itself – at AED 600 – is mid-range but if you are an avid runner and want to target new goals, then these shoes are the perfect fit.

Coming in a range of colours, their design is simple and stylish – but very much built for getting the best out of your running experience.

Overall, I was extremely impressed by the GEL-Nimbus 19’s comfort and support – and I would definitely recommend them for any runner pounding the pavements in the UAE.

RATING 9/10: Performance and comfort are top class.
