You’re the early-morning jogger getting some exercise before clocking in at your 9-to-5 job. You’re the former cross-country star who still trudges the trails in muddy rainstorms. You never ran for exercise before, but now you want to lose a little weight so you picked it up. Your relationship with running begins and ends at the treadmill, and it’s a tenuous relationship at best. Regardless of your style, one thing is for sure―if you’re going to be running in any capacity, you need to protect your feet.
Runners need shoes that offer comfort, support, durability, and style, and that’s exactly what you’ll find with KicksUSA’s collection of men’s running shoes.
Even if you don’t consider yourself a runner, and just like the fit of men’s running shoes or the flexible, lightweight feel, this collection is for you too. Besides, you know you like the bright, multi-colored styles a lot of brands put out. From the flexible and lightweight feel of Nike running shoes to the cushioned, performance-focused adidas boost™ soles, KicksUSA has a wide, best-selling collection of men’s running shoes.
Running Shoes for Men Who Hit the Streets and Roads
If you’re a road, street or pavement runner, look for lightweight men’s running sneakers with medium traction for balance, agility and stability on both flat and uneven surfaces. To protect your feet from the repetitive strides on hard surfaces, look for running shoes with cushioned soles and ankle support to give you protection from impact, like the “Air” cushioned soles of the Nike Air Max collection.
Men’s Running Shoes for Gym & Treadmills
If you’re putting in your daily mileage on treadmills, a lightweight, flexible shoe with a thin layer of cushion should be sufficient to support your stride over a flat surface, like Nike’s ultra-lightweight Flyknit and Air Presto series.
Keep in mind that treadmill runners usually put the majority of pressure on their heels, so ensure your shoe provides adequate cushioning at the heel to soften the impact of repetitive landings.
Men’s Running Shoes for the Trails
If you’re looking for men’s running sneakers to protect your feet from more rugged terrain, remember that you don’t have to sacrifice your preference for flexible, lightweight sneakers.
When compared with road-running shoes, trail runners and hikers should look for thicker, grooved soles that can protect and grip through uneven, rocky or muddy terrain. Look for durable, sturdy upper materials for protection from abrasions. Your running shoes should also be cushioned with solid foam to protect your feet from hard edges.
Make sure to double check that these features won’t end up making your shoe too bulky or stiff so you have adequate control for precise foot placements on gravel or mud.
Running Shoes for Men Who Just Want to Style Out
Some men just like the look of bright or multi-color running sneakers. It could be a comfort thing, but usually it’s about style. Two particular shoes come to mind for men looking for a stylish look in a running sneaker.
Nike Huaraches are the brainchild of famous Nike designer Tinker Hatfield, inspired by neoprene water-skiing shoes. Huarache shoes are flexible, stripped down to their bare essentials, which makes them super lightweight. Huaraches are also quite stylish, with their interweaving strap design and wide selection of colorways. Whether you go bright, multi-color or a little more subdued, they will hold any color well.
Other than the Huaraches, another of the most popular, stylish running shoes for men are those made with adidas PrimeKnit technology. Adidas running shoes such as the adidas NMD and adidas EQT shoes have been rising to the forefront of running sneakers, and the integration of PrimeKnit and boost™ soles in modern adidas style is a huge reason for that.
Running Shoes for Men of All Sizes
You might think it’s hard to find running shoes that feel good on your flat feet. You might need more cushioned shoes. You might have huge feet or wide feet.
It’s important to make sure you get your shoe size right. Sizes can also vary by the shoe brand or style. You may need to go a size up or down depending on the shoe. Measure your feet using our online fit finder and find the perfect size to keep you comfortable mile after mile.
