En zulke mooie. Terug naar Asics, de schoenen waar ik m'n marathon op trainde en liep.
Het hele internet staat vol heerlijke niette verifieren marketingtaal die alleen maar goeds belooft. Hou ik van.
When runners think of the Gel-Nimbus series, they think of super
plush cushioning. Soft as a cloud, right? The brand new Asics Gel-Nimbus
17 is no different.
However, this latest edition of the Nimbus is significantly lighter.
Many core running shoes in the marketplace have been redesigned with
seamless uppers to not only reduce stitches that cause irritation, but
also to create a lighter package overall. Finally, the Nimbus 17 has
been retooled with a virtually seamless FluidFit upper, making it one
of the most significant updates for the Nimbus series in recent history.
After we weighed both the Nimbus 16 and Nimbus 17, we were pleased to
find that the men’s Nimbus 17 shaved .6 ounces from the previous
model—weighing in at 10.8 ounces for a size 9. The women’s model also
dropped weight, tipping the scales at 8.8 ounces for a size 7.
Despite the drop in weight, Asics has improved the cushioning of the
shoe with FluidRide 2.0 technology. The FluidRide midsole debuted 2
years ago, offering runners with a two, separate layers of foam to
attenuate shock and to propel them to their next stride. The FludRide
2.0 offers 20% more
“bounce back,” or energy return, and is 15% lighter than previous midsole compounds.
Don’t let these updates give you the wrong. The Nimbus 17 is still a
highly plush, every day neutral shoe that can withstand the daily wear
and tear that comes from high mileage. The seamless upper and lighter
weight might just make your runs a little bit easier.
Dus, Als je vanavond iemand langs ziet zweven, dan ben ik dat. Op mijn nieuwe wolkjes.
