Known for being an excellent shoe for neutral runners, the Asics Men's Gel-Nimbus 13 Running Shoes are all about cushioning, which is nice for those long runs. If you are someone who needs a little spring in your run, or you run heavy, or need more stability, the men's Gel-Nimbus® 13 is a great fit. The 2012 upgrades include a lighter shoe thanks to new super light, super durable AHAR® outsole material and a full-length guidance line that gives the shoe a smooth transition through the gait cycle, and promotes a more efficient toe-off position. Note: This product comes NEW and in un-used condition, but, may not come in the original manufacturers packaging.
