The GEL-Nimbus 20 Platinum will help you take on every kilometre with lightweight comfort. Now with an improved fit and extra ease, the updated Nimbus 20 Platinum offers multiple levels of cushioning thanks to the combination of the FluidRide midsole, FlyteFoam bottom layer midsole and SpevaFoam top layer midsole. Together, this cushioning increases bounce-back characteristics while decreasing midsole breakdown.
A new FluidFit 2.0 mesh upper adapts to the foot and strategic overlays offer support, whilst Gel cushioning at the rearfoot and forefoot provides maximum bounce-back and unrivalled comfort. Finished off perfectly with 3M reflective detailing, they’re ideal for evening jogs.

ASICS is an acronym of the Latin phrase ‘Anima Sana In Corpore Sano, meaning ‘A Sound Mind In A Sound body’. And staying true to this philosophy, every ASICS product is made to enable professional and everyday athletes alike to push the boundaries of their physical capabilities.
Innovative from the very start, ASICS’ first pair of shoes, produced in 1949, featured a unique recessed sole design, which mimicked the action of an octopus’ suction cup. They were targeted at Japan’s up-and-coming basketball scene and, despite some notable successes of ASICS athletes in the 1950s and 60s, it wasn’t until the 1970s that the company established itself in the athletics world as a go-to manufacturer of running shoes.
Not content to rest on its laurels, ASICS opened the Research Institute of Sports Science in Kobe, Japan, and has since helped to advance technology in sports shoes and apparel industry wide through studying and analysing the movements of the human body and testing all kinds of weird and wonderful materials.
Today, ASICS is one of the world’s best known makers of performance shoes and apparel and the true runner’s choice, whether at professional sporting events, the Olympics or on a casual run in the park.
