Half-size too small for ladies' feet


We recommend these running shoes for any woman serious about running. 


ASICS does it again - each year a revolutionized Gel-Nimbus hits the market. This year, the Gel-Nimbus 17 takes the win for the best overall running shoe for women we could find. This lightweight ladies' jogging shoe has shed some serious weight making it lighter than ever before. We also appreciate the new FluidRide midsole and extended Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL-Cushioning system which improve the already comfortable ride. There's plenty more to enjoy with these lightweight shoes too. For start, the nearly seamless FluidFit upper aids in preventing blisters which sets these babies apart from the crowd. And, lady runners can appreciate a blister-free run. 


The lightweight GEL-Cushioning in these shoes reduces the the shock during impact and toe-off phases, allowing for a smooth transition throughout your stride and less chance for injury. 


A good portion of the top of these top rated women's running shoes is made with breathable mesh ensuring your feet are well venilated and less sweaty during those long runs. 


Ultimately, ladies' running shoes are about fit. And these shoes come with FluidFit upper technology which uses a combination of multi-directional stretch mesh and stretch reinforcements to create a glove-like fit. Not only do these running shoes come in half sizes, but they also come in three different widths: narrow, medium, and wide. However, they do run a bit small so be sure to order up a half size. 


The price is somewhat on the competitive side, of course, but these lightweight shoes are definitely worth it. ASICS is best known in the running community for being extremely dependable and made with quality.
