Here are some of the best sneakers under $100
Nike Cross Trainer Low
Nike's Cross Trainer is a classic but never enters the conversation of all-time greats. That's because it's a quiet workhorse. While other silhouettes steal the show with bold colorways and highlight collaborations, the Cross Trainer remains wildly versatile with its minimal construction.
When you're on the hunt for cheap sneakers for men, you should always check out the OG sportswear labels. Take Mizuno, for example. We tend to fly past Mizuno releases in favor of bigger names but the Japanese imprint has been making a host of signature silhouettes for decades and doing it really, really well.
Salomon XA-Pro Fusion Advanced
Salomon has really taken over the world of sneakers. Building on a utilitarian foundation with a range of bold color palettes has put it at the forefront of stylish sneakers and the XA-Pro Fusion Advanced weighs in at the more affordable end of the spectrum.
adidas Broomfield Sneakers
If you're looking for affordable trainers, the likelihood is that you're looking for something to wear day in, day out, that you don't need to worry about beating up. The neutral adidas Broomfield should do the job. A fully off-white palette makes this one a styling gem.
Vans x Neighborhood Era Sneakers
It's rare to find a good-looking collaboration pair for under $100. Vans is no stranger to the Neighborhood collab and we're on board every time. This all-black sneaker works in the same way as the Broomfield; its monochrome palette makes it a staple everyday selection.
ASICS GEL-Venture 6
ASICS running silhouettes have become one of the go-to styles in streetwear and luxury recently. With a range of high-profile collaborations adding credence to the style, you can get the look without the price tag by copping the GEL-Venture 6.
Converse Tri-Panel Chuck 70 Sneakers
Tri-Panel Chuck 70 Sneakers
Designer Sale - Up To 50% Off
Designer Sale - Up To 50% Off
Converse's Chuck Taylor 70 is a timeless style which makes it a great choice if you're looking to stretch your dollars. In neutral off-white, you'll be hard-pushed to find anything that this pair doesn't style with.
adidas Samba OG
In honor of one of reggae's greats, Bob Marley — who loved playing football in adidas Sambas — this Samba OG features Jamaican colors to the Three Stripes logo. Against the black leather backdrop, it's a striking palette that transitions easily from summer to fall.
adidas Ozelia Shoes
You'd be forgiven for thinking that the adidas Ozelia was a never-before-seen YEEZY design. Adopting a similar, dynamic sole unit design and waving upper form, it's a solid alternative to the perpetually sold-out Kanye designs.
Puma Suede Classic XXL Sneakers
The Puma Suede sneaker is one of those shoes that transcends trends, making this Puma classic almost historic. This sneaker has marched its way into important subcultures, sporting events, and civil rights moments. The Suede can be dressed up with a double-breasted suit or dressed down and worn with a pair of baggy jeans and a sweater vest (that's right, sweater vests are back). You might as well add this into your rotation too if you are looking for a sneaker under $100 this season.
Reebok Club C 85 Vintage Sneakers
Reebok's Club C ("C" for Champion) first made an appearance in 1985, during the height of the tennis sneaker boom. This shoe is up there with the adidas Stan Smith in terms of legacy, and it's found new life on the feet of modern sneakerheads, adorned for its durable leather and its specialized inner lining that creates a unique cooling effect for the wearer. Retro and subtle in equal measure, this will be the champion in your rotation for years to come.
New Balance 237
One of the most adaptable sneakers in the game, New Balance, offers a wide array of comfortable and stylish silhouettes. We still can't get over the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 550s. The 237's keep on this promise offering sneaker-lovers a stunning retro-era shoe made using the brand's staple mix of suede, mesh, and nylon. If your sneaker style sits on the chunkier side, the 237 is a great choice.
