”As soon as I put on the third iteration of the Nimbus Lite, I was very excited by the updated look, fit and feel,”
The ASICS Gel Nimbus Lite 3 is a slimmed down version of the popular Nimbus line. It is a lightweight, neutral daily trainer and is actually quite stable due to its full contact outsole and sole flare. The shoe has some nice sustainability features, including the mesh upper that is made with at least 60% recycled material and FLYTEFOAM cushioning that is formed with organically derived materials.
“I love the concept of a lightweight shoe made with more sustainable materials."
The shoe construction
The bootie construction with its soft, stretchy upper and tongue fabric makes these shoes comfortable right out of the box.
The heel collar is really plush and comfy. The material is super soft and the cushion practically melts around my ankle. Also, the tongue is super stretchy.
ASICS used their signature GEL technology in the rearfoot and forefoot of the shoe to increase shock absorption during landings and toe-offs.
A new outsole rubber, called ASICS LITE, is lighter and stronger than previous versions, providing excellent grip and traction.
On my first run in the ASICS Gel Nimbus Lite 3, I ran 25k and felt great! It was a rainy day and they had great traction on wet asphalt. I’ve also used them for tempo increases on my distance runs and the work like a charm.
“I’ve added these shoes to my regular line up for easy runs and long runs, and it’s nice to know they can handle picking up the pace.”
Who's the shoe for?
The Nimbus Lite 3 is a great choice for those with neutral mechanics or mild stability needs. If you’re looking for a moderately cushioned daily trainer with a soft yet springy ride without being weighed down, the ASICS Gel Nimbus Lite 3 might be your jam.

ASICS GELTrabuco 9 - an allround trail pioneerby Arina Thorén / Mar. 04, 2021
I’m a road warrior. Feeling most comfortable when the asphalt kicks me forward during my daily runs. I am also a dedicated OCR-contestant and I was really excited when I opened a new gift from ASICS and found a new pair of ASICS Fujitrabuco 9. The new trail shoe!
