I am Asics most loyal fan. I will not stray from my dear, dear Asics Gel Nimbus model running shoes.
Prior to discovering this shoe I endured such indignities as blistering, plantar faschiatis, and other painful ailments.
And then I found the Asics Gel Nimbus.
But so worth the money.
Once, only once, many years ago, I strayed.
I tried a different pair.
And they lasted 100 miles less.
My Asics? They carry me through 500 miles, every single time.
I know, because I track the mileage on my shoes. Towards the end of 500, I can feel more aches in my joints, and I know it's time for a new pair.
This pair right here?
They've carried me through rain and mud. Over crickets, spiders, and once a black snake. They've crushed blades of grass and rocks and pounded on sizzling hot summer pavement.
They've caught my clumsy trips and stumbles.
And they've raced. Distances of 5K, 10 miles, and a half marathon.
Thank you dear Asics.
And now, it is time to retire.
But never fear. My new pair is here!
Behold, the running shoes destined for the NYC marathon!!
Now that's some new shoe excitement!
