The adrenaline junkies of Mumbai are gearing up for the big annual event that they prepare for months in advance. Sir, yes sir! The Mumbai marathon is just around the corner, and even though your trainer might give you full marks for preparation, without the right footwear, the battle is just half won. The Gel Nimbus by ASICS could be the missing part of the puzzle you need for a good beginning. Equipped with soft and bouncy Flytefoam Propel midsole, there is also a larger section of Gel technology cushioning that wraps around the sole for improved rearfoot impact protection, which reduces stress and absorbs shock. Improved ventilation – another upgrade from the previous generation of the shoe, slightly wider front and the added bounce from the Gel heels are signs they’re made for long distance running. Priced at ₹13,999, these gel beauties come with Mumbai's coordinates (19.0760° N, 72.8777° E) embossed on them to make their dedication to Mumbai loud and clear. On that note, we’d say now is the perfect time to slide into them so you’re ready to be a roadrunner in less than a week!
