Nike saw its athletic shoe sales slip while both adidas and Under Armour racked in double digit gains. In the last week of January, the Swoosh saw a 9.1 percent decrease in footwear sales compared to a year ago. Still, Nike is a clear leader in basketball shoes and has released some of the best selling sneakers in that category. However, the basketball shoe category overall slid 13.7 percent from a year earlier. This caused Nike’s stock to slip 5 percent.

On the other hand, the Three Stripes (which owns Reebok) saw a hefty 24.2 percent rise from a year earlier in footwear sales, while Under Armour made huge gains with a 70.5 percent increase. Additionally, adidas’s Ultra Boost is now the best selling running shoe.
