    ASICS GEL-Nimbus 15 Road-Running Shoes - Men's is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent backpacking shoe I use these with Superfeet inserts for long distance hiking and backpacking. A pair lasts about 6 to 700 miles. Have been using Gel Nimbus for about nine years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GEL-Nimbus 15 awesome again! I've used Gel Nimbus starting with 13 which were GREAT, I hated the 14s used the old 13s until 15 came out, and I am very happy again. Don't know exactly what the deal was with me and the 14s but I am glad the 15s have me back in a happy place. I average 25-30 miles a week mostly on roads but sometimes on a treadmill and I REALLY LIKE these on either terrain. I'm not sure what the perceived issue is with the tongue, on my Nimbus 14s and 15s they are exactly the same length (5 inches from the first lace holes to the back most edge of the tongue, 8 1/2 inches from the front of the shoe to the back edge of the tongue). Visually the 15s are a LOT brighter that may be the reason for the perceived largeness.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE REMOVE THE PORK CHOP!! I've used the Nimbus going back to the Nimbus 12, and average about 2 pair per series, so I think this is like my 7th pair or so. I typically give the shoe very high marks and then add in my gripe about the ridiculously large tongue. In past reviews, I've likened it to that which was found in the high-tops of the 1980's. The Nimbus 14 was much better in this regard, so I thought that maybe Asics was on the right track streamlining that part of this shoe. However, I just received my first pair of 15's, and they've pulled a full 180. I feel like there's a pork chop sticking out the top of the shoe. It looks ridiculous and is anoying when it bumps up against your shin thousands of times on a run. I understand it's a cushioning shoe, but that doesn't mean a pillow across the top is needed. I could seriously lop of about a full inch of the thing and there would still be sufficient material to do what it needs to do. I know it's a vanity thing, but I don't care anymore. I'm giving the shoe low marks solely on this issue and will look for a different go-to shoe in the future until they change this feature. Remove the pork chop, Asics!!!
