GEL-NIMBUS® 9 'Obsidian Grey/Moonrock'
The GEL-NIMBUS® 9 sneaker was initially designed as a distance trainer for neutral and supinated runners. First released in 2007, this shoe resurfaces with original materials and key accent details. Its industrial look from the Y2K era is also offset with bold contrast and color blocking. In this era of our performance footwear, we shifted towards a more segmented midsole design. With GEL® technology inserts in the heel and forefoot, this tooling helped create better cushioning and a more stable step.
Mid-2000s aesthetics are represented through the upper’s layered mesh and synthetic leather paneling
