Guys can make a variety of statements with the diverse selection of shoes available at Footlocker.com. Go sporty with court-inspired footwear or high-technology running shoes, bring a rural look to the street, or go straight urban with a variety of Jordan, Nike, adidas and more.
The hardwood has inspired several styles, honoring the legacy of legends past – i.e. Michael Jordan – and the game’s hottest rising stars – Derrick Rose.
Both the Jordan Spiz’ike and its sequel, the Son of Mars, are mash-ups of past Air Jordans and their retro releases. And the Rose series features his personal D Rose logo and numerous style and colorway call-outs to Rose’s hometown of Chicago.
Boots, such as Nike’s ever-popular Goadomes, bring rural flavor to an urban setting. A full leather upper rests atop a midsole with visible Max Air cushioning.
Headlining urban favorites is the Nike Air Force 1, which debuted as a basketball shoe in 1982 and has been reissued in countless styles and colorways since. That includes the clean whites that are so popular for simply stepping out, and the all-blacks that many choose to wear for work (where black shoes are required).
Running styles are as popular for kicking around as they are for actual running. Some of the hottest styles have been the Nike Air Max series, and the Mizuno Wave Prophecy line.
Nike’s Air Max models are Nike+ enabled, meaning there is a space in the left midsole for a chip. This allows the wearer to upload running progress to social media, participate in challenges, and generally interact with other Nike+ users.
The Mizuno Wave Prophecy line replaces a traditional foam midsole with a double Wave plate. Made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), this Wave plate setup seeks to disperse shock similar to forces of nature.
Guys interested in hooking their kicks to clothing can choose from Nike Elite basketball socks, as well as t-shirts, hoodies, shorts, and more.
