The ball has dropped. The clock has struck midnight. You've sang "Auld Lang Syne" (you know, the song that starts off 'Should old acquaintance be forgot'). Now it's time for those resolutions. Gonna walk at lunch. Jog around your neighborhood. Run injury free. Tackle your first race. And if you're like me you want to accomplish all of these goals in a pair of freshies (new sneakers), right? Good. Consider the GEL-NIMBUS 26 one last holiday gift from your friends at ASICS, and its set to be in our stores and online in January. The GEL-NIMBUS is one of the most comfortable shoes from ASICS and creates a plush underfoot feel to give you the experience of running on clouds. This new version will also be the first to be CO2 labeled, which will help to provide transparency on ASICS sustainability efforts.
I pretend to not be one for resolutions, but my '24 is loaded with training, running, and racing goals. I'm sharing in the anticipation for this release so we can begin to clock some serious mileage, check off a few of the resolution boxes, and circle back with a proper review on how these puppies perform. Here's what we know so far:
A lightweight, breathable upper
Better outsole grip
Revamped midfoot fit
Softer midsole cushioning
Philadelphia Runner will have these beauties online and in our stores
And the countdown starts NOW.....
