The results are in. HYPEBEAST China just hosted a survey that asked participants to vote for what they consider the best sneakers of 2020.

The survey gathered data from 4,710 people and asked people to vote for their top picks within 10 categories from nearly 100 different sneakers. Most of the criteria in the survey were brand and design-centric. 40 percent of participants voted for the Air Jordan 1 Retro as the best basketball shoe of the year. The “Best Skate Sneaker of 2020” was the Nike SB Dunk Low, while the “Best Running Shoe” was the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT%. New Balance 327 was voted as the “Best Lifestyle Sneaker;” Salomon S/Lab XT-6, the “Best Outdoor Sneaker;” and Louis Vuitton LV Trainer, the “Best Luxury Sneaker.” Other sneakers like the Nike Air Fear of God 1, Nike Kobe 5 Protro and New Balance 550 also came pretty close to taking the top spot.

Scroll below for a brief list of the top-rated sneakers of 2020, and head over to HYPEBEAST China to see the full results.
