We recently previewed the upcoming Asics Gel Nimbus 15 and Asics Gel Cumulus 15. The updates certainly look good, and we think the added cushioning in the updated versions will be a lifesaver for fans of cushioned trainers.
“Lite-Show” colorways are another lifesaver – possibly literally – that will be introduced on these new models. What’s Lite-Show? As the images in this post suggest, we’re talking about some serious reflectivity in the upper along with glow-in-the-dark visible Gel units. For additional visibility, the Men’s models feature a “Flash Yellow” color on the upper, while Women’s models receive “Hot Coral.”
Lite-Show technology was first introduced last Fall in some of Asics’ apparel line. We appreciate the added safety offered by these apparel pieces and footwear options, and we’d recommend them to any runners who frequently find themselves training in the dark.
