Here Are the Top 10 Sneakers of 2016 Based on Dollar Sales in the U.S.

“This is the first time a Nike product has not been on top in more than a decade.”

By //Footwear

2016 sneakers sales figures have started to roll out and adidas is sitting pretty at the top. Matt Powell, a Sports Industry Analyst at market researchers the NPD Group, tweeted the following top 10 in terms of U.S. sales dollars in 2016:

The Three Stripes’s retro silhouette sits atop the ranking, followed by the Jordan XII; Converse Chuck Taylor Low; then four straight Nike entries in the Roshe Run, Huarache, Air Revolution and Free Run; the Jordan XI, the classic Air Force 1 Low and the Nike Kyrie 2.

Powell told Quartz that the ranking was an ouster of sorts for adidas: “This is the first time a Nike product had not been on top in more than a decade.” Furthermore, Powell notes that Nike’s slippage is “a testament to [Nike's] struggles in its US wholesale business.”

These sales figures bode well for the German brand – adidas is already coasting off surging stock prices and spikes in growth.
