Men's Running Shoes

Whether you’re a seasoned runner with designs on dominating the track, or an enthused amateur finding your feet on the street, our selection of men’s running shoes empower you to run fast, confident and true. With technical design that intelligently supports every running style, our selection will help you reach your goals.

Choosing the best men’s running shoes 

  • To start, consider the surface that you will be running on. Roads, tracks and trails all require different types of grip and cushioning. The type of running that you do and the frequency of your runs will also play a part in choosing your best men’s running shoes. So whether you’re preparing for a marathon, entering running competitions, or are a casual once-a-week runner, adidas have the ideal running shoes made especially for your needs.
  • A professional evaluation for your running style will determine whether you run with underpronation, overpronation or neutral feet. Once you have this established, you’ll be able to select a pair of men’s stability running shoes or men’s running shoes for overpronation to ensure maximum performance if your feet need it.
  • Take your current weight into account when selecting the cushioning of your men’s running shoes, as it will affect the way your feet connect to the ground. And when trying them on, consider going half a size larger as feet generally expand during any sports activity. Before taking your new men’s running shoes for a spin, it’s important to wear them in for a couple of days.
  • Make sure you don’t use the same pair of running shoes for too long. Even though they will look new for a long time, regular running shoes should only be worn for about 400 to 600 km. And if you’re a regular runner, ensure you have multiple pairs of shoes that you can rotate through to help prevent injuries.
  • The perfect running trainer is a deeply personal thing. It must be tailored to you in terms of size, and designed to complement the shape of your foot and the way you run. Explore the variations of cushioning, support and stability to ensure comfort and performance.

Experience matters

As much as running style matters, so does experience. If you’re used to running in cushioned shoes, you shouldn’t switch up your style to a lighter model just before a marathon. If you’re a beginner, there are shoes designed specifically for you.

Take it off road

Running shoes made specifically for your kind of run are the way forward. The adidas Trail selection will prepare you to conquer the off road with extra grip, maximum stability and comfortable cushioning. Also, check out our men's adidas trainers as well as women's trainers to match your casual outfit.

Mens Running Shoes Frequently Asked Questions

There are slight differences between men's and women’s running shoes. The primary difference is in the width, as women have narrower feet than men. Some designs have uppers constructed slightly differently to account for the differences in foot shape.
Depending on the type of walking you have planned, wearing running shoes isn’t always a good idea. Walking has a lot less impact than running, so there isn’t as much need for cushioning. Also, a lightweight sports shoe may not give you the protection that you need. Walking shoes need to suit your gait, as well as the right level of flexibility. Some running shoes will be too flexible and will not provide the structure and support required for walking.
Running shoes should fit snugly and laced accordingly, but bear in mind your feet will expand when you run. Breathable sports shoes with mesh uppers will help keep your feet cool. If you feel any numbness when you run, your shoes may be too tight. However, if you wear your running shoes too loose, your foot will slide around in the shoe.
