Sneakers are one of the year's biggest footwear trends. There are styles for every personality and occasion, from canvas Chuck Taylors to leather Cole Haans to Allbirds you can toss in the wash. Whether you’re a strictly shorts kind of guy or you like to switch it up with a pair of crisp white pants, these eight casual men’s sneakers will complete your look.
1. The classic Adidas Stan Smith
Adidas sells plenty of sneakers but the Stan Smith is arguably the brand's most famous pair, with over 10,000 rave reviews on Amazon. The minimalist silhouette, which has been around for over 50 years, features Adidas' three-stripe design and an upper made with recycled materials. You can currently get the Stan Smith in 11 colors and prints (including Disney and Marvel collabs) and Adidas frequently releases limited-edition styles. The sneakers come in men's whole and half sizes from 7 to 14.
"I currently own 25+ pairs [of Stan Smiths] and have worn them with everything from tuxedos to shorts," one super fan exclaims. "They’re addictive—so much so that I have bought a new pair each summer for the past 20 years and always keep a crisp new pair in my closet. The added bonus is that they are easy to clean and don’t crease."
2. These iconic Vans slip-ons
The Vans Classic Slip-Ons are exactly that: a true classic. The laceless skate shoe has been around since 1977 and boasts a low-profile upper and chunky rubber sole. The sneakers come in a variety of prints—including the black-and-white checker print of the '90s—and men's whole and half sizes from 3.5 to 13.
Fans like how the stretchy elastic insets make the shoes easy to put on and take off and that the padded sides keep the shoes securely on your feet. "I've worn these almost daily for the past five years," one of the shoes' 6,000+ reviewers says. "They're perfect: Comfortable, durable, and so convenient to just throw on."
3. The washable Allbirds Wool Runners
You may have seen Allbirds Wool Runners on your social media feeds over the last few years. The recognizable sneakers have risen in popularity, thanks to their comfortable fit and washable exterior—you can toss them in the washing machine to clean them). They come in men's whole sizes from 8 to 14.
One of Reviewed's writers tested the women's version of the Wool Runner and found them to be lightweight and supportive enough for all-day wear. Other shoppers agree: "I knew almost instantly that these shoes were a game changer for me," one male reviewer says. "I walk five to seven miles a day and they fit like a second skin, soft and comfortable."
4. The '70s-inspired Nike Blazer
This mid-top sneaker featuring Nike's iconic swoosh is one that will never go out of style. One of the brand's highest rated shoes, the Blazers have a leather upper with vintage suede accents and an exposed foam tongue for a retro vibe. They come in men's whole and half sizes from 3.5 to 15.
Fans praise the shoe's ankle support and laidback look. "These shoes are exactly what I'd expect from Nike—solid construction, classic style, and versatility," one shopper says. Note: Many people say the shoe runs small so you may want to size up.
5. The leather Cole Haan GrandPro sneaker
Upgrade your summer shoe game with these dressed-up Cole Haan sneakers. Clean-cut and to the point, the GrandPro's elegant leather upper has a plush foam footbed that's designed to contour to your foot as you wear it. Available in neutrals and earth tones like navy and rust, the shoes come in men's whole and half sizes from 7 to 15.
Many reviewers like that the Cole Haans go with almost everything and that they feel as good as they look. "Sleek and stylish, these are made of a high quality smooth leather material that's durable enough to minimize deep creases," one person says. "The colors are true to the pictures and pair well with almost any attire." Note that these sell out often at Nordstrom so if you want a pair for yourself, you'll want to scoop them up ASAP.
6. The OG Converse low top
No list of sneakers would be complete without a pair of good old Chuck Taylors. While the Chuck 70, as the name suggests, first came out in the 1970s, the latest iteration has been updated with higher quality canvas and an orthopedic insole. The sneakers are available in six colors, or you can build your own pair by customizing every detail down to the eyelets. They come in men's whole and half sizes from 3 to 16.
"Lifelong Converse wearer here," one reviewer says. "These Chuck 70s are a serious upgrade! Better quality and seems like they'll last longer. I'll be buying these from now on instead of the basics Chucks."
7. This laidback Everlane sneaker
The Everlane Court sneaker provides a cool update to the standard white low top with hints of subtly colored suede. The brand claims that the upper's full-grain leather is manufactured by Saigon TanTec—a tannery dedicated to more sustainable production—and the sole is made with recycled rubber. The shoes come in men's whole and half sizes from 7 to 13.
They have a high 4.86-star rating from Everlane shoppers. "Comfortable right out of the box!" one person raves, while another describes the shoes as an "elevated" and "classier" version of other athletic brands' sneakers.
8. These Beckett Simonon high tops
Beckett Simonon's leather shoes have a reputation for being high quality and durable—and these swanky high-top sneakers are no exception. Made of Italian full-grain leather, the shoes have a thick rubber sole for support and a leather-lined insole that's soft and breathable. They come in men's whole and half sizes from 7 to 14.
Fans of the shoes appreciate that they're ready to wear right out of the box—no breaking-in period required. "This is my fourth pair of shoes from Beckett Simonon, and they continue to deliver fantastic values at a great price," one person says. "The high tops are sleek and comfortable. The stitching is very high quality, the leather supple and comfortable, and the foot bed is ideal."
