If you caught Sneaker Report’s recent round-up of the best glow-in-the-dark running shoes, then you know the Asics Gel-Nimbus 15 Lite Show is the top choice for runners looking to light up the road at night. A special edition version of the popular Gel-Nimbus 15 support shoe, the Gel-Nimbus 15 Lite Show features an all-over reflective upper with glow-in-the-dark Gel detailing to help increase runner visibility in low-light conditions.
Beneath its glow-in-the-dark silhouette, the Gel-Nimbus 15 Lite Show features all the same performance tech seen in the standard version of the shoe, including Asics’ Guidance Trusstic System for midfoot structural integrity, and Guidance Line technology for enhanced gait efficiency. The shoe features a FluidFit upper, which combines multi-directional stretch mesh with synthetic overlays for a supportive and custom fit. Gel cushioning units in both the forefoot and rear offer underfoot cushioning and help with impact protection. The Gel-Nimbus 15 Lite Show is loaded with a high-energy rebound FluidRide midsole that is both comfortable and durable despite its lightweight build. Additional features include an external heel counter for support, an anti-odor ComforDry sockliner, and a gender-specific fit (the women’s version, seen above in pink, features 3mm of additional height to help relieve Achilles tension.
