The Best Workout Shoes For Cardio

In celebration of the New Year and getting fit, Queen Cheap presents the BEST workout shoes for cardio:

The Asics Gel Nimbus 15

The Asics Gel Nimbus 15 is hands down the best workout shoes for cardio. They are supportive in a way that makes you feel like you’re walking on clouds. You feel like you could jump up and down for hours in these things with no stress on your joints…they are THAT good.

*Please note, as pictured above in Asics’ promo video, there is a latest edition Gel Nimbus 16 out right now, which are basically the same shoes as the 15 with a couple of minor changes. I recommend the 15’s as they are easier to find on sale.

I have been amping up my Cardio lately (although I did take a short holiday break over this last vacation with the rest of America). I started to notice these shoes on all the fit girls in the fitness classes, so I did my research and realized that even my favorite dance cardio trainer KP Dance Body recommends them in this interview on the Classpass blog.

According to Asics’ website:

If you’re looking for the ultimate in comfort and protection, look no further than the GEL-Nimbus®. A new FluidRide midsole combines with the updated Guidance Trusstic System® to provide a silky smooth step transition; which, when coupled with the customized fit of the FluidFit upper, creates an unbelievably luxurious running experience.

Asics Gel Nimbus Sale

Sun and Ski Sports has the best sale on these normally pretty pricey shoes (normal MSRP $155) for only $79!!! FWIW you can’t find this sale on Google’s first page of searching “Asics Gel Nimbus Sale”; and I am happy to pass on these savings to you. I bought the yellow below and they are so comfortable I really do not want to take them off!
