Not all guys enjoy runnings. (If you’re not one of them, check out the best walking shoes for men instead). Also, not all of guys hit the weight room every day. Does that make them lazy slobs. No. Doing no physical activity while housing pizza by the box full does that. But you’re an active guy (we know because we spy on you), and that means you need proper footwear when you do feel like going for a light jog or putting
400 135 pounds on a bench press in the gym. And that’s where cross trainer shoes and their inherent versatility come in handy. We found a handful of awesome options that’ll keep your feet comfy during whatever activity you’re involved with. Well, unless that activity is something like dropping a metal anchor on your foot. In that case, regardless of your footwear, you’re pretty much screwed.

Lightweight, breathable material offer you the ability to move with ease without stinking up the joint when you take your kicks off. The Flywire lacing system wraps your foot for support while the midsole cushion keeps your dogs from barking during even the toughest of training sessions. Unfortunately, these won’t enable you to dunk from the free-throw line. Sorry.
#2. PUMA Men’s Cell Surin Nubuck Cross-Training Shoe ($65 and up @ Amazon.com)
Puma’s Cell Surin Nubuck Cross-trainer was created for durability and fashion. Made with a rubber sole, the nubuck upper with perforated detailing and EcoOrthoLite sockliner inside adds breathability and fit while the heel cushioning adds comfort. Add in the TPU shank for greater stability, this shoe is perfect for workouts and then running errands or robbing banks. Not in that particular order, either.
