Size and fit

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.

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 as the mesh material can be stretched 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.

Notable Features

Puma Pacer Next Excel shoes are footwear that lacks no amount of comfort. The SoftFoam contoured footbed provides optimal cushioning that can ably handle jumps, walks, jogs, and other types of physical activities.

Puma Pacer Next Excel History

Puma is a footwear brand founded in 1948 by Rudolf Dassler right after his split with his brother, Adi, of Adidas fame. Puma is an innovator with roots deeply steeped in sports. Although the company has since branched out to include lifestyle shoes and accessories in its lineup of products, you can still clearly see its athletic background in the shoes they develop.

One of their sporty casual shoe releases is the Puma Pacer Next Excel, which is another well-received model in their Pacer Next collection. Shoes in this range feature breathable mesh fabric uppers with TPU synthetic cages on the sides. Puma Pacer Next Excel sneakers are designed for the on-the-go individual who would like to show off their athletic side. The lightweight build of the kicks is engineered to enhance your performance with any physical activity you embark on.
