“Cheap shoes for men” is a pretty ambiguous term. It could include everything from expertly-crafted casual sneakers to flip-flops you buy in a pack at the dollar store by the beach. So if your far-ranging Google searches eventually guided you here, chances are you don’t have a specific shoe in mind. Well buckle in (or, uh, lace up): you came to the right place.
First things first, you need to establish a few parameters. To narrow down your search, cap the budget at approximately $150 a pair. Then, focus on what you’re really looking for. If we had to guess, it’s probably not running shoes, or basketball shoes, or cross training shoes, or any other type of footwear you could target with a more particular term. It’s also probably not wingtips or some other bland option you only wear to satisfy an unwritten corporate dress code that should’ve been retired around the same time email replaced fax.
If we were betting men, we’d say you’re on the hunt for the perfect retro-leaning low tops, or a pair of timeless—but not stuffy—hard-bottoms, the type of kicks any proper rotation of casual shoes wouldn’t be complete without. So that’s exactly what you’ll find here: cheap shoes for men that look anything but (21 of ’em, to be exact). Congratulations, friend—your long, exhaustive search officially ends today.
