Every guy knows that feeling good is just as important as looking good. By going with trendy, yet casual shoe styles, you can get both. The idea is to look for clean lines. Unlike most traditionally athletic styles, casual shoes usually don't have that chunky silhouette. Plus, they can be worn with either jeans or slacks and definately add a trendy touch to any outfit.
The following are some of my picks for the hottest new casual styles for men:
Royal Elastics Adelaide
A simple shoe made of soft full grain leather and suede, the Adelaide is a great way to go if you want to avoid wearing the usual black or brown. The midsole is made of die cut EVA and the outsole features a rubber cupsole.
Hush Puppies Mesa
Hush Puppies ZeroG technology incorporates lightweight, shock absorbing midsole with a lightweight rubber tread for traction and durability. It also features a full grain tumbled leather or oil nubuck leather upper for an overall casual, yet sophisticated, look.
Merrell Relay Fly
A baton-pass look and feel in quick-breathing mesh, set off by contrastive pigskin reinforcement and quick-cinch tunnel webbing lacing. In-Board wedge EVA midsole keeps profile low, cushioning high. Micro-cupped Sidewinder sole is logo-large on the lateral side, and fully engaging on a variety of surfaces.
Allrounder by Mephisto Proud
Features a removable anatomical footbed, which cushions and eliminates shock from the impact of walking. Active suspension shock absorber ensures effective protection for the joints, vertebra and spine from damaging shocks and vibrations. Soft latex foam padding prevents pinching and rubbing at the instep and below the ankle. Bi-lateral stabilizers between the heel and forefoot provide excellent support and effortless comfort. This casual shoe looks as good as it feels; a great shoe with casual slacks or jeans.
Skechers Urbantrack Mandalay
Get on track: this modern casual leaves the others in the dust. Features a trendy neo-oxford look that is detailed with center stitching, side trim and a dotted wrapped rubber outsole.
K-Swiss Classix LX LP
This luxury version of the original Classic
is one of our most popular styles. The upper is made of soft cashmere leather or nubuck leather with rich leather stripes and a shorter vamp. The outsole consists of molded Aosta rubber cupsole with forefoot flex grooves. Three-piece toe, five-stripes and D-Rings. Embroidered K-Swiss Shield on tongue.
KangaROOS 52 Legacy
A classic tennis style shoe that looks great on the court and off. Shown here in burgundy and grey, the Legacy still features the signature pocket in the side.
A Saucony Original, this funky retro sneaker comes in a variety of colors to match any outfit. Its casual style can be paired with anything from jeans to gym wear. The uppers are made of genuine suede; solid rubber outsole with traction for extra grip.
