Your Foul-Weather Friend.
Forget about fair weather—the Asics Men's Gel-Cumulus 18 GTX Running Shoe is bound to become your new foul-weather friend. Designed specifically to combat inclement conditions, the Gel-Cumulus is best suited for soggy saddle seasons and winter training runs.
To achieve such adaptability, this running shoe is constructed with a breathable mesh upper, while the Gore-Tex backing protects your foot from sloppy conditions. The ComforDry sockliner wicks away the buildup of moisture, and the Impact Guidance System enhances your natural stride from heel strike to toe-off. Additionally, the FluidRide midsole, combined with the Gel Cushioning System in the fore and rear foot area, absorbs shock and provides ample comfort as you run. The Guidance Line flex grooves ensure a natural, dexterous feel underfoot, and the DuragSponge and AHAR outsole tout durability and traction when you need it most.

The Gel Cumulus is a good shoe for the average runner. I've been running in the Gel Nimbus for the past few years and thought I'd give the Cumulus a shot. Truth be told, for me and my running style, the Cumulus doesn't hold a candle to the Nimbus. If you need support due to arches (or in my case the lack of arches) go get the Gel Nimbus. But if you are a neutral runner check out the Cumulus. I think you'll find they are breathable, comfortable, and stay dry through long runs. I've taken these on a few 5-6 mile runs and was happy in the shoes for what they are. But for personal fit I'll be going back to the Nimbus as soon as possible.
