These two popular shoes of the Japanese brand differ above all in terms of support. The Nimbus 23 is a neutral running shoe, while the Kayano 27 is designed to offer a high level of stability to prevent overpronation.

Both models weigh about the same, but the Nimbus offers a few more millimeters of stack height. The ride is also similar, with a medium-soft cushioning and a slight bounce that lends itself well to daily training.

Otherwise, both models use the same technologies for cushioning and grip, with a few differences.

We advise you to choose the Nimbus, which is more flexible and less bulky unless, of course, you are specifically looking for a stability model.
