1. Go for a slightly bigger length :

Pick a shoe with a thumb-width space between your longest toe and the end of the shoe. This is essential because men often notice a swelling in their feet after a run. In fact, your feet might even lengthen after regular jogging.

2. Make sure the Width is comfortable enough :

According to fashion blogs, when you are out for shoe-shopping, always make sure that your foot can easily swing right and left in the shoe’s forefoot without crossing over the edge of the insole. In narrow fit shoes, you will sense the base of your little toe touching the edge of the shoe end.

3. Prefer a smooth Instep :

Often joggers complain of feeling pressured and tight around the lace area. So, ensure that the upper part of your shoe is accommodating enough. You can even try different lacing techniques to make the instep untroubled.

4. Flex :

Any idea what’s that? Well, flex is the syncing of your prospective shoe’s flexibility with that of your foot. You can check it by holding the shoe by its heel and pressing the tip against the floor. Expect it to bend and crease along the same line as your foot. If not, then this purchase could give you calf-sprain or flat foot!


Well, you can now easily follow the new fashion trends for men without giving up on your foot comfort. So, buy the best pair and put your running foot down!
