3. Nike Air Max 270 Trainers
Function meets fashion with Nike’s Air Max 270's, re-imagined from cult classics Air Max 180 and Air Max 93.
Nike’s high-performance shoe features the brand’s largest heel yet – perfect for those extra-large feet and unrivaled comfort in the gym. We love the blend of aesthetics and performance in one comfy package. So, why is it one of the best sneakers for tall guys? Because the flexible mesh that has found its way into so many succeeding Nike shoes is a godsend for tall men with extra-wide feet.
Best of all, for the truly fashion-forward tall guy, the 270’s can be customized to every last detail, from the color of the laces and outsole, to additional graphics, and even embroidering your initials or name onto the tongue.
Nike Air Force One’s (AF1)
We go from a tricked-out designer sneaker to a simple, understated legend: Nike’s original Air Force One’s.
If you’re over 6’, AF1’s are simply some of the best shoes for tall guys. Paying homage to the Presidential Plane of the same name, the iconic shoe was the first of its kind to feature Nike’s ‘Air’ technology. Coming in low, mid, and high-tops, and virtually every color imaginable – there are over 2,000 different versions and counting – AF1’s truly embody that versatile, do-it-all sneaker that’s a must for any man’s shoe rack.
We recommend this sneaker for tall guys who are up to the challenge of rocking a clean shoe – nothing beats the OG, full-white AF1’s (assuming you clean them up regularly). Fresh AF1’s signify a laissez-faire lifestyle that radiates coolness, as well as an appreciation for the classics.
Noah Waxman Gotham II Sneakers
If you’re confused by what attire is appropriate for modern work culture, Noah Waxman’s Gotham II Sneakers are suited for the office and the outdoors.
Casual and classy, these luxury sneakers feature a leather upper half, an off-color suede heel and toe, padded leather insole for added comfort, and a unique Ghillie lacing.
As if they need another reason to get a feature on our list of the best sneakers for tall guys, Gotham II’s also come in a range of color schemes to match your personality, along with two sets of laces for even more tonal variety. The burnished leather comprising the toe and heel changes color, too, for added pop to your get-up.
We recommend these sneakers for tall guys who need some sophistication for the office but aren’t rigid enough to go full loafers like Dad does.
