2. Koio Capri Onyx: Best men’s casual shoes to wear with jeans
We absolutely love the Koio Capri’s sneakers collection as our everyday sneakers. These simple yet elegant premium leather sneakers are perfect to match with jeans to dress up during the week or casually for the weekend. The perfect everyday sneakers for men really.
We’ve picked the black onyx model here for its timeless and classic sneakers look, but the shoe is also available in rich brown leather, classic white, and many more color options.
Koio is a fast-growing online sneaker brand created by two passionate sneakerheads. They design their shoes in the USA and produce them in Italy. Check our in-depth Koio sneakers review and learn more about the story behind the Koio brand.
Another excellent casual sneaker option to wear daily is these sustainable, irresistibly stylish sneakers by French-based brand Veja. Many color combinations are available, but we recommend a simple and neutral color combination for a timeless pair.
3. Axel Arigato Clean 90: Most stylish sneakers for men
Nothing beats a pair of clean, minimalist sneakers for men. Our favorites have to be these versatile suede sneakers by street-smart Swedish label, Axel Arigato. Blending the understated minimalism of Scandinavian and Japanese culture with a hint of playfulness, they can be dressed up with classic tailoring or dressed down with activewear or casual jeans.
Axel Arigato’s Clean 90 Sneaker collection is a real game-changer and we’re definitely tempted to buy multiple pairs. There are heaps of styles available, featuring everything from 3D embroidered birds to zebra print heel tabs. But we appreciate the unfussy sophistication of this beige suede pair. This cool update of the classic Clean 90 Sneaker is handmade from premium suede with a luxurious texture. The back tab in smooth leather offers an aesthetically satisfying contrast.
With a slightly higher heel, cushioned footbed, and arch support, these Axel Arigato Clean 90 sneakers provide ultimate comfort from morning until evening, and wherever you end up in between.
If you’re looking for something edgier, check these distressed sneakers by Golden Goose instead. The Italian luxury shoemaker combines luxury materials, true craftsmanship, and edgy design to the world of men’s sneakers.

4. Nike Air Force 1: Bestselling men’s sneakers of the year
Nike is one of those failsafe, classic sneaker brands you need in your shoe rotation. The Nike Air Force 1 is quite simply the most popular men’s sneaker of 2023.
On-trend with a retro yet timeless look and legitimate street credibility, the Nike Air Force 1 ’07 are great value too, selling for just $110. We love this particular all-white iteration with durably stitched overlays, clean finishes, and the perfect amount of flash to make you shine.
The Air Force 1 has defined shoe culture since the moment it stepped onto the court. And it continues to be a fashion staple thanks to clean lines, a strong midsole, and new and classic colorways in low, mid, and high-top styles.
You can also fully customize your own Air Force 1 design with the Nike By You program. Create your own sneaker by selecting the colors and materials for every component of the athletic shoe.
If you’re looking for a slightly more edgy pair of sneakers, the Nike Air Max is another bestseller in 2023. The Nike Air Max comes in a large range of style and designs, but we’ve shortlisted the Air Max 95 Premium as our choice for this year.
These sporty sneakers take inspiration from the ’90 classic track aesthetics. Nike’s signature lightweight rubber sole makes it also one of the most comfortable sneakers to wear all day long. No wonder the Nike Air Max 95 are one of the absolute best-rated sneakers online.
Check our Nike Air Max 95 lookbook for more inspiration on how to rock this pair.

5. Adidas Ultraboost 22: Most comfortable sneakers for men
When Adidas first introduced the Ultraboost, the shoe received rave reviews online for its build quality and comfort. Put the sneakers on your feet, and you’ll feel like you’re walking on clouds! The latest version, the Adidas Ultraboost 22, is excellent for running as well. Better yet: the Ultraboost are made from recyclable materials, so they are friendly to our planet.
The Ultraboost is now available in a large range of colors and styles. The breathable mesh top is particularly comfortable during the summer to keep your feet cool. It’s also one of the few pairs of shoes on our list with true athletic capabilities. You can use them on the track, at the gym, or as your go-to pair on the weekend.
Pssst: you can snatch a brand new pair of Ultraboost at a discount if you purchase the previous version, the Ultraboost 5.0 DNA, from Adidas here.
A favorite sustainable sneakers brand of Leonardo Dicaprio and ours for both comfort and value, Allbirds has earned itself a status as the world’s most comfortable shoes—and after putting Allbirds’ sneakers to the test, we reckon it’s pretty much true. Made from sustainable eucalyptus tree fiber, these everyday sneakers are breathable, machine washable, and odor-resistant.
Sometimes magic can happen in your comfort zone, and by that, we mean slipping in these black sock trainers by Hugo Boss. Oh, and did we mention they are partially made from plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in the ocean? A look-good, feel-good sneaker—we are sold.

6. New Republic Kurt Leather Sneaker: Best men’s all black sneakers
If you are looking for a convincing argument for stepping into the dark side, in a good way, these black dress sneakers by New Republic are all you need to know. Yes, you can wear black-on-black sneakers and still be trendy. Simple as that.
The black sneakers feature a sustainable Tencel mesh footbed (Read: memory foam luxury mattresses for your feet) for increased comfort and breathability. No break-in time is needed. Classic style and effortless elegance at affordable prices? Need we say more?
If you want a luxury pair of black sneakers, try these Common Projects sneakers. These black leather and black sole sneakers even come with matching black lace-up closure. Only a discrete serial number stamp in gold tone is present on the outer side for a touch of style.
Black Original Achilles Low Sneakers
One way to add a little character to an otherwise all-black sneaker is to play with textures. And this modern take on the iconic Gucci Ace Sneakers is a case in point. Embossed with a tonal GG Supreme pattern, these luxury sneakers are the epitome of elegant sophistication and bold confidence.
Black Ace Sneakers
7. Koio Capri Triple White: Best all-white men’s sneakers
Every man should own a pair of pure white sneakers. They are easy to wear with nearly everything, and will instantly freshen up your look. White sneakers don’t have to be boring, however. To be on-trend, check this pair of Koio Capri Triple White. The shoe is very comfortable even after a long day of walking.
The full-grain lether will age gracefully if you wear them everyday and let them scuff up. It’s also easy to keep white if you prefer to maintain their pristine look and only wear them occasionally.
Another great option for white sneakers for men is the Oliver Cabell Low 1. It’s a great value alternative if you want simple yet stylish white sneakers made with high-quality materials.

Allbirds really are some of the most comfortable shoes for standing all day. If you like Allbirds’ everyday sneakers, but you want something with a bit more support for your next 10K (or casual jog), check out the Tree Dashers.
Made from eucalyptus tree fibers and with a dual-density SweetFoam midsole made from sugarcane, they’re sustainable and performance-ready. Supportive, stable, flexible, and well-cushioned, they also have the added bonus of being available in half-sizes.
Learn more about the story behind Allbirds.
For comfort while walking through town all day, we also really like Salomon S/Lab’s XT-6 sneakers. The French shoe manufacturer is seeing a massive increase in their sneaker sales since it became a high-fashion status symbol (Even Ralph Lauren and Rihanna started wearing these cool shoes).
10. On Running Cloud X: Best athletic shoes for men
If you want a pair of sneakers that can support you all day long, even if you decide to break a bit of a sweat, try the On Running Cloud X. We’ve become a fan of the brand since testing their unique sole technology (check our On Running shoes review to learn more).
The Cloud X are super light but have enoug structure and support to be versatile. They’re so light that we personally use them as lifestyle sneakers to go about our daily tasks in the summer months, but, according to Reddit reviews, plenty of guys also wear them at the gym to exercise.
We picked the glacier and olive version for the image above, but it also comes in classic black and white or more edgy color tones to suit your tastes.
11. Nike Killshot 2: Best men’s sneakers under $100
On-trend with the retro look and dad sneakers inspiration, we love these simple yet stylish trainers.
The Nike Killshot 2 has legitimate street credibility and costs less than $100. These sneakers are hard to get, however, and tend to sell out as quickly as they’re restocked. We love this particular iteration with midnight navy’ swooshes on white leather and light-grey suede trims. The abrasion-resistant gum rubber soles complete the look for a classic tennis sneaker.
Another great option under $100 is the timeless Adidas Originals Stan Smith sneakers. They’ve been around forever and will last you just as long.

Their timeless design and excellent build quality make them the perfect affordable sneaker. They are available in a range of colors to suit your style.
Looking for another cheap pair? Even if you’re not a total denim nerd, you must know Levi’s. And just like their iconic classic jeans, the sneakers deliver timeless casual style and plenty of low-key cool vibes. They are comfortable, durable, and of good value. We found the best deals on Amazon for these Levi’s sneakers under $50.
13. Adidas Originals Superstar: Best classic sneakers for men
Every man should have a pair of Adidas Originals Superstar in his sneakers collection. The design is timeless. Some even call them the best sneakers of all time. The shoes come in a variety of colors, but if we have to pick just one, we would recommend the classic white leather with black stripes.
If you close your eyes and picture one of the most classic sneakers in history, chances are that the Converse Chuck Taylor will pop into your head.

Their aftermarket price has increased by 27% since they first went on sale. They remain one of the hottest sneakers of the year. Hipsters love them for their unique look, sneakerheads love them for their investment value on aftermarket websites.
We give an honorable mention for this alternative: the beloved Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG in a brand new shiny look. The classic Air Jordan high-top silhouette remains a timeless hit with a modern twist thanks to its patent leather in black and red tones.

We love a good collaboration, and if it’s bringing uber-cool sneakers to the table and on our feet, even better.
Born from a partnership between New Balance and Aimé Leon Dore, these athletic Taupe sneakers are upgrading New Balance’s dad shoe with a contrasting mixture of suede and mesh and an interesting colorway inspired by New York City aesthetics and the Big Apple’s subway cars in the graffiti glory days of the 1990s.
