Men's Trainers - How Converse All Star and Puma Trainers Compare

For guys, choosing your next pair of trainers is a very important decision to make because your trainers say a lot about you and your style. Converse All Star and Puma are two of the most popular brands of men's trainers at the moment, so which is better? Converse and Puma are very different in their styles and look and so here is a look at the two brands and how they compare.

Converse All Star Men's Trainers

Converse All Star trainers are quite different to the style of normal sport trainers that immediately come to mind. Converse are styled in the retro all American pump look from the 70s. They are soft in material and are more of a pump than an actual trainer. Converse trainers are not meant for sport wear because they do not offer any support to the foot. These men's trainers are for casual and fashion wear only oppose to puma trainers which are more for sport reasons. Converse come in a range of colours and designs, some are plain white or black for example and some are really out there and whacky in patterns and different colours. Converse look great with jeans and a t-shirt and cardigan, they can also be worn with black trousers for smart wear as well. Converse trainers are more of a fashion statement than Puma trainers.

Puma Men's Trainers

Puma trainers are worn mostly for sport purposes such as in the gym or playing a sport but men also wear them for casual wear as well. Puma have a wide range of looks with their trainers some are bulky and padded out sports trainers and some even though are still padded are quite sleek and slender. Puma is a popular choice of men's trainers because of the name and the choice of designs, you can go for the plain white trainers or something a little more funky such as grey and red. Puma is fashionable while still having the sport look about them. Some men prefer Puma over Converse because they are more manly and feel Converse are more for the younger generation.

Both Puma and Converse are great choices of trainers. Converse has a more retro prep boy look to them while Puma is more sporty looking geared more for the younger and older generation.
