Move Those Muscles With Asics

In which a new pair of sneakers give me a new way to walk.

r’s note: I was sent a pair of Asics sneakers in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.


I started a goal of 365 miles in 365 days back in January and so far this year I am a bit short of my goal. Part (most) of the reason is that I had no motivation to walk. My walks/wogs would leave me with heel spurs and sore cal However one pair of Asics Nimbus sneakers later and my walk has become a highlight of my day.

I have never had a pair of Asics before. I always thought that other brands were the sneakers to have but I am here to tell you that these are one of the most comfortable pair of sneakers I have ever worn.


Asics Nimbus/
I chose a pair of women’s Gel-Nimbus running trainers in powder blue and orange, a color combination I would normally shy away from. These are light on my feet, supporting me as I work on adding fitness to my daily routine. I have not experienced any pain in my foot or the swelling that I’ve associated with running.  In fact, I have to make myself change shoes so that I am not doing everything in these!

These shoes accompanied me to my trip in which I took a spin class, have been great for walking and light wogs and will be perfect for riding the bike I recently got. I totally recommend these for any person who loves comfort and  style and can say with confidence that these will be my newest go to fitness shoes.

I didn’t actually use these for spinning but they did go with!

    I’ve had a few pairs on Asics over the years. I used them a lot when I was teaching aerobics classes and personal training my clients. Love the colors on your sneakers!!

  3. Love your new Asics! I have been dying to try Soul Cycle, what do you think of it?

    1. Rachee says:

      Soul Cycle was awesome. I didn’t have any kind of spiritual epiphany but I did feel very energetic afterwards.

  4. love the bright colors! yes, I want to hear about soul cycle – I’ve been wanting to take a class.

  5. I have been wearing asics for a long time. I find them very comfortable.

    Those are some CUTE shoes! How many miles are you at now? 365 in 365 days is a great goal. Do you have a fitbit? I love mine!

    1. Rachee says:

      I’m so behind! I’m only at about 45 so I am definitely going to need to double up on some days! I want to get a fitbit. That will be my next investment in me.

Your turn! Tell it to Rah-shay!
