The GEL-NIMBUS® LITE 2 running shoe continues to build on our GEL-NIMBUS® heritage by providing neutral runners with a lighter design and excellent cushioning. While the first iteration focused on combining a soft and lightweight design~ this version builds on that same mindset but creates an even smoother cushioning experience. Part of our brand's sustainability initiative~ this style also features a series of recycled materials while using fewer resources for a more eco-friendly design approach. Nearly the entire upper of the GEL-NIMBUS® LITE 2 is formed with recycled materials that help your feet breathe better throughout your run. Simultaneously~ the FLYTEFOAM® midsole technology incorporates Cellulose Nanofiber~ a sustainable material that increases the durability of the foam. Designed with an advanced software program that helps improve the shoe's cushioning properties~ this model also references the design language of the GEL-NIMBUS® series while creating a lighter and softer running experience. Meanwhile~ the GEL® technology cushioning in the forefoot and rearfoot improves comfort while increasing shock absorption. Additionally~ the ASICS LITE Rubber outsole increases the shoe's durability and prolongs the mileage you get out of your running shoes. Fusing advanced tech with design nuances that halo our GEL-NIMBUS® series~ the GEL-NIMBUS® LITE 2 running shoe is part of our mission to help create a more sustainable world while offering soft cushioning and lightweight comfort.
