Asics Gel-Nimbus 15

As promised, I've been looking for a new pair of running shoe since I decided to join another full marathon this year. My 3 year old Asics has been serving me very well, and only recently it started to show sign of old age, the shoe sole started to come off, so my wife helped to send it for stitching. It's still wearable but it feels loose and weird wrap because of the stitching.

I search for new model in Asics that suit my feet type, and I quickly catch the opportunity to get a pair when I'm visiting Singapore last month. Singapore always sell Asics cheaper than Malaysia, else you wait for special discount on older model and it might make sense.

My choice of running shoe is the Asics Gel-Nimbus 15 that's recently launched. It comes with Chinese Red / Silver / Lime Green but only Chinese Red is available in stocks for my size, so this is how it looks like.

Being one of the highest end model in Asics running shoe, technology involved is plenty and here I list out for your enjoyment. Don't worry, I don't understand any of them, but it does feel good to know for what I'm paying for.

Guidance Line - Vertical glex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.
Heel Clutching System - Exoskeletal heel counter provides improved support and creates improved heel fitting environment.
Discrete Eyelets - Independently placed eyelets disburse lace tension, creating a customised fitting environment and enhanced upper comfort.
ComforDry Sockliner - Provides cushioning performance and anti-odor properties for a cooler, drier, healthier environment.
Impact Guidance System (I.G.S) - Asics design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off.
Guidance Trusstic System - This Trusstic System integrates Guidance Line construction for enhanced gait efficiency while providing midfoot structural integrity.
FluidRide - The latest evolution in Asics midsole technology, FluidRide provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability.
FluidFit - Asics FluidFit upper technology combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapt to the athlete's foot, creating a truly customised glove-like fit.

This pair of running shoe is very expensive, and it retail at RM599.00 in Malaysia. Although it's the same price as my old Asics Gel-3010, but there is no discount available normally due to new model. I got it cheaper in Singapore though. It feels good, and hope it will see me through my 2nd full marathon =)

FLUIDFIT technology, always love how Asics wrap my feets.

GUIDANCE LINE technology around the sole area.

FluidRide, the newest technology by Asics.

And finally, it it Made in China =P
