A great pair of cross training shoes is essential to maintain feet health and even overall health. Cross training shoes that are well-balanced can help prevent knee pain, sprains, and arch heel pain. Good quality shoes can help those with pronation issues, and may even help runners and those serious about training exercise for a more extended amount of time and at faster speeds.
Amazon has a great selection of cross-training shoes. Here, five different Men’s brands of shoes are showcased. The brands features are Nike, Asics, Adidas, New Balance, and Puma. These are a well-known brand that has been popular for several years due to their durability, high performance, and excellent physical appearances for those who are interesting in cross-training.
1. Nike Men’s Train Prime Ison DF mens cross trainers
These shoes retail for about eighty dollars, and some in standard and half-sizes. These shoes have enhanced traction, which helps one easily transition from hitting the weights to hitting the treadmill with considerable ease. The dual density foam found in the interior of the shoe helps keep one at maximum comfort as they jump or run in a training session.
Once you squeeze into these, the magic happens…ahhh! You may consider half size larger than your usual fit, but I am fine with the snugness. Ultra-light and great tread along with a stylish no-frills look makes them a good choice for fitness, walking, and wearing them with a casual outfit, too. I do not often review, but these were a great buy at a very affordable price.

2. Asics Men’s Fuzex Tr Cross-Trainers
These are one of the best cross training shoes for men, and they are a little under seventy dollars and come in a few colors, such as white/blue and green/black. They come in standard sizes and half-sizes. 360 degrees of support and a secure fit are offered, and the shoe naturally adjusts during those high powered, intense cross training sessions. The shoe is designed for a variety of environments and help one maneuver quick-changing routines and agile movements.
Light weight and good fit! Still a little larger around your feet comparing to asics gel fortious. But is very comfortable, and seems to be ok for functional/crossfit training.

3. Adidas Men’s Speed 3.0 mens cross trainers
These shoes are about seventy-four dollars and come in standard sizes and half sizes. The Colors vary from grey/white, white/black, all black, grey/pink and red/black. These training shoes are fantastic for long hours at a training session, and the upper mesh keeps feet cool and dry while one is working up a grueling sweat. The out-sole makes sure that one’ has impressive ground-gripping action and the lightweight shoe helps one obtain the fast speeds and time that are desired. The sole is removable, and the shaft measures low-top from the arch. These are some of the best cross training shoes for men.
I was a little skeptical about buying Adidas as I have been disappointed by the last several pair I have tried on. These are exceptionally comfortable. I use them strictly for working out. My training is always changing up my conditioning and strengthening and the shoes I had started to hurt my feet. These provide all the support I need for my circuit training and even short distance runs. I didn’t even need to break them in, right from the box to the workout.
Way to get it right Adidas…..
4. New Balance Men’s 40v Cross-Trainers
These mens cross training shoes are a little more than a hundred dollars and come in standard, half-width and wide sizes. These shoes contain a Vibram sole with a shaft that measures low-top from the arch and boasting a REVlite mid-sole. The Rapid Rebound in the forefoot helps proper one forward during their intense power lifts. These shoes are strong and quite runn-able. These shoes have been known to support at least 500-pound squats and dead-lifts on any given day, which earns them a title among the best cross trainers for men.
I’ve been wearing new balance shoes for the last decade or so. Always been a fan of the minimus shoes released by new balance, with a few exceptions that they bombed out on. This shoe right here is New Balance’s redemption shoe to me for any poorly made pairs I’ve recently had from them. By far and without question this is the most stable and comfortable minimus shoe I have ever worn from them. I power lift on and off in my life, so that means once up to peak strength, these shoes stand up to and easily support 500lb + squats and dead lifts all day. They are also the most forgiving in terms of going for a much longer run that most if not all other minimus shoes would allow before your feet hurt. All I can say is well done New Balance, my second pair is on the way now!

5. Puma Men’s Tazon 6 Fracture FM Cross-Trainer
These mens cross training shoes are a little over fifty dollars and come in standard sizes and half sizes. With a modern look, these shoes provide stable cushioning for those who are active in sports, lifestyles, and fashion. The soles are removable, but they are so soft that one wouldn’t want to! Those who wore these said that walking on these shoes is like walking on air or the clouds. These are recommended for heaving squatting at the gym as well. These are also in the bracket of best cross trainers for men.
First off, these were a true fit for me. I normally wear size men 10.5 in Reebok/Asics and these fit great, they are almost a perfect fit. They did take a couple hours to break in but the SoftFoam padding feels good on the feet. It’s been a couple years since I’ve owned a pair of Puma’s, mainly because of the price so I was happy to get these for $40. A con for these shoes would be the width for some people, I would say that my feet are a standard width but I always had to wear wides when I wore Nike’s but I no longer like their style of shoes.
Hopefully this helps someone.
