Asics Gel Cirrus33 – Our Take

February 27th, 2012

Asics Gel Cirrus33 Women's Running Shoe

Our Tweet

New Math: Cirrus33 + 1 left foot + 1 right foot = Cushioning3. You won’t find a more cushioned shoe to keep you protected and comfortable.

Big Features

  • Rearfoot and Forefoot Gel Cushioning: The Cirrus33 has the largest volume of Gel cushioning of any Asics shoe.
  • 2-Layer Midsole: SpEVA foam provides additional midsole cushioning and sits above a denser layer of Solyte foam for added stability.

Road Test

If you’ve got a wish for squish, you can’t miss Cirrus33 on your list. (Say that 5 times fast!) Cush is the headline here – the Cirrus33 is more gooped up with Gel than any other Asics model. Ever. Run in the Nimbus or Vomero? Then you need to take the Cirrus33 for a spin.

Every tester was surprised by just how much more cushioning this shoe offers than other Asics models. But it’s not a one-trick pony. You can tell that Asics put the work in to make this shoe runnable and fairly responsive given its pillowy protection. That said, a few testers noted hot spots at the top of the heel and on the lateral side of the upper near where the Asics logo joins up with the midsole.

While we’re on the subject of hot, several testers felt that this shoe ran hot, and would have liked to have seen a little more breathability, particularly in the midfoot. Fit received high marks overall, with many testers liking the heel and the forefoot. This shoe is not as low-volume as some other 33 Collection shoes, which makes sense for the runner who is looking for a cozy daily trainer rather than a streamlined racing shoe.

Runners Say

“Tremendous cushion for heel strikers, with a smooth transition for the runner who wants that near-effortless roll from heel to toe. It’s more forgiving than the Nimbus and a lot like the very first Nike Vomero.” – Jonathan

“The Cirrus33 gives you bottomless cushioning. Seriously, I could not find the bottom of the cushioning in the heel and forefoot.” – Joanna

“It’s like a hotel mattress for your foot. For the ultimate in cushioning, choose this shoe.” – Matt
