Fit & Sizing

These sporty casual sneakers feature a very stylish look that would get you stares in the gym, at the park, or anywhere else you take them. Fortunately, Puma Pacer Next Xcel sneakers are offered in both men’s and women’s sizes. The men’s models have sizes which run from 7 to 14 while the women’s are available in sizes 5.5 to 11.

Some colorways are offered only to one specific gender, but it’s possible to wear one designed for the opposite gender provided you remember there’s a size difference of 1.5 between them. The men’s models naturally run bigger and wider than the shoes designed for the ladies. Men need to add 1.5 sizes to their usual foot measurement to purchase a women’s model while the women need to subtract the same from their regular foot size to purchase a men’s model.

There is no problem with the fit and length as Puma Pacer Next Excel kicks reportedly run true to size and boast of average width size. The mesh material can also stretch a little to accommodate the foot. Pull tabs at the heels and front of the collars allow for easy on and off.

Puma Pacer Next Excel Style

The sleek athletic styling of these shoes looks perfectly suited to joggers, yoga pants, and other sporty casual outfits. Of course, you can still match them with jeans because virtually any sneaker looks excellent when paired with blue denim.  

There is a good choice of colorways to choose from. Puma Pacer Next Excel shoes have black colorways galore such as Black/Lavender Purple, Black/Blue/White, Black/Red/White, and Black/Blue/White. Blue/Orange, Grey/Navy/Red, Light Grey/Peach Pink, and Navy/Grey color schemes are also available.
