Slip on sports shoes for men smart looking & comfortable for people with specific mobility needs
Tired of struggling with laces? Slip on shoes are a good option for you. The name itself conveys the ease of wearing them. Just slip your feet into them and you are ready to go!
Be it for sporting activities or just casual wear, slip on sports shoes come in a range of styles and colours and have quite a fan following. For Rushabh Desai, an independent financial advisor, they are always the first choice.
Rushabh has a neuromuscular disorder called GNE myopathy, and is a wheelchair user. Rushabh is wearing a black pair of slip on sports shoes in the picture.
“They are very easy to wear and come with thick flat rubber soles externally and with a soft padding internally. This helps a wheelchair user rest his feet comfortably on any kind of wheelchair footrest. You can also sit for long hours without discomfort or a shoe bite”.
Slip on sports shoes typically are of two types – slim fit and narrow towards the toes and the regular fit which are little wide. Rushabh’s favourites are the regular fit that are one size bigger than his actual foot size. “This way there’s ample breathing space, giving the toes good flexibility to spread and rest”
We have a range of slip on sports shoes lined up for you in this week’s NH Lifestyle, all priced under ₹ 3,000.

Given their wide range and colours, Chennai-based Zoyeb Zia prefers slip on sports shoes even for formal occasions. Zoyeb has ataxia, a rare neurological disorder that affects coordination and body movement and finds it hard to wear shoes with laces.

“Slip-on sports shoes are easy to wear and remove. They are easy on the feet and comfortable too. I pick solid colors and simple designs as I wear them for formal occasions too”.
