Cushion King

Some runners are light on their feet; others need some cushioning. For the latter group, we recommend the new Gel-Nimbus. With its generous foam-and-gel landing pad, the Nimbus took the sting out of heavy footplants and long afternoons on tarmac, and the narrow heel and asymmetrical laces give it a snug fit without pressure points. Deep grooves in the sole help create a smooth feel that seemed right for short jaunts or distance runs, making it a good everyday workhorse for neutral runners. 12.2 oz (men's size 8.5); $125; asicsamerica.com
