After two decades, the Gel Nimbus from Asics is still one of the most important neutral running shoes available. The Nimbus 20 has fantastic cushioning throughout with the introduction of Adaptive GEL which increases cushioning as you begin to fatigue, making it ideal for long distances. FluidRide midsole has been updated to be more responsive. The heel counter provides a secure fit while a visible rear foot gel positioned closer to the foot makes every stride easier and softer. The upper is constructed from gradient mesh in combination with 3D print to provide an excellent fit that combines the right amount of flex and support.

In a Neutral shoe the midsole is made up of a high cushioned material with no extra medial (arch) support to lessen the impact that legs have to endure when running.
Neutral running shoes are for those who have, what is regarded to be, the 'ideal' running motion. Initial impact will always be towards the outside of the foot, whether you heel strike or land towards the forefoot. For a Neutral gait the foot then rotates inwards to help absorb shock, but stops when the foot is positioned straight from the heel up through the achilles to the lower leg. This better alignment puts no, or very little, stress on the lower leg muscles and joints resulting in less joint related injuries.
Neutral Shoes are also recommended for Under Pronators. Underpronation occurs when the foot doesn't role inwards enough from the initial impact. Underpronators should look for higher cushioned neutral shoes to help with the lack of natural shock absorption.
