We offer a wide variety of running shoes, each with its own characteristics. Then how to know in what one model is different from another? To help you with this, we at 21Run present the Expert Opinion. This helps you get insight into the different characteristics of specific running shoe models.
The Expert Opinion is the way in which our running experts rate the model on a number of important elements. Do you already know which characteristics your new running shoes should have? Use the Expert Opinion to check if they meet your demands.
Degree of Pronation
The degree of pronation indicates the extent to which a model provides support for overpronating runners. If the orange bar is on the far right, the model gives a high degree of correction. If the orange bar is on the far left, the model does not correct. Neutral runners don’t need a correction, overpronating runners often do need a certain degree of correction.
Level of Support
The support level indicates to what extent the shoe provides support. This is related to the weight of the runner. If the orange bar is on the far left, the shoe provides little support, making the shoe more suitable for lighter runners. If the orange bar is on the far right, the shoe gives a lot of support, making the shoe very suitable for heavier runners.
Level of Cushioning
The cushioning level indicates the extent to which the shoe absorbs shocks that occur during landing phase. If the orange bar is on the far left, the shoe provides little cushioning. When wearing running shoes that provide little cushioning, you experience a lot of ground contact and responsiveness. If the orange bar is on the far right, the shoe provides a lot of cushioning. When wearing shoes with a lot of cushioning you will experience a softer running feel, but less ground contact and less responsiveness.
Level of Responsiveness
The level of responsiveness indicates how energetic a running shoe feels. We also call this the degree of reactivity. If the orange bar is on the far left, the shoe is less responsive. If the orange bar is on the far right, the shoe is very responsive. When a shoe is responsive you get back the energy you put into your stride during take-off phase.
The ASICS Gel Nimbus 20 for men are neutral running shoes. These luxury running shoes offer optimal cushioning and are ideal for long distances. The ASICS Gel Nimbus 20 is still a leading, luxury running shoe after 20 years.
The biggest update in the ASICS Gel Nimbus 20 can be seen in the upper. The stretch mesh upper has a more open design and provides more ventilation. It is lighter and more streamlined and keeps the feet in place while running. Small changes in the design of the overlays ensure an improved fit and an improvement in the lacing system prevents irritations.
The Nimbus 20 features the familiar FluidRide and FlyteFoam midsole with the SpEVA top layer. This provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance. The breathable sockliner wicks moisture effectively and prevents blisters.
An update in the Exoskeletol Heel Counter provides improved support and creates an improved heel fitting environment. The rubber outsole provides traction and durability. The Guidance Line provides enhanced gait efficiency.
Gender Specific Cushioning
The ASICS Nimbus 20 makes use of 'Gender Specific Cushioning'. Research has shown that men and women run differently. On top of that there often is a difference in feet form and weight. ASICS has customized the cushioning of the Nimbus 20 to these differences and has brought us different cushioning levels and offset between men and women.
The fit of the ASICS Gel Nimbus 20 has been improved. We advise you to order your usual size of running shoes. In the Nimbus 19 we advised yo to order half a size bigger. If you are switching from the Nimbus 19 to the Nimbus 20 we recommend ordering half a size smaller.
This technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness, no matter the distance.
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
The independently placed Eyelets help to better divide the pressure of the laces, thereby adding more comfort to the upper.
Guidance Trusstic System
This system supports stable movements by reinforcing the middle part of the sole and preventing the shoe from twisting.
Ortholite X-40 Sockliner
This premium sockliner features higher rebound properties while providing excellent moisture management, and high-level breathability.
Provides bounce back and responsiveness, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.
Upper technology combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapt to the athlete's foot, creating a truly customized glove-like fit.
The use of seamless materials reduces the potential for irrigation and friction caused by traditional stitches and seams.
Increases performance by reducing imbalance caused by shifts in the runner's center of pressure.
This lasting material features plush underfoot comfort while providing excellent moisture management and a high level of breathability.
