9 Must-Have All-Black Sneakers for Men

Black sneakers are a great addition to any man’s collection.

No longer solely associated with the clunky work styles you’d find in a kitchen, they’re available in a range of on-trend silhouettes — not to mention pair easily with any outfit, look clean and don’t distract from your overall aesthetic.

If you’re looking to add a triple-black style to your lineup, FN has rounded up nine looks from brands including Nike, Adidas and Puma that are great pickups.

Tips and Notes

  • Subtle color pops often provide a welcome contrast that helps the sneaker stand out.
  • The upper material will help you decide if they’re appropriate to wear (e.g., you may not wear a knit upper to a formal function, but leather may work for the event).

Below, shop nine all-black sneaker styles for men available online today.

Nike Air Force 1 ’07

Arguably the brand’s most important shoe of all time, the Air Force 1 ’07 executed in all-black is a clean look that can be dressed up or down.
