The Top Ten
1 Nike Nike, Inc. is an American multinational corporation that is engaged in the design, development, manufacturing, and worldwide marketing and sales of footwear, apparel, equipment, accessories, and services. The company is headquartered near Beaverton, Oregon, in the Portland metropolitan area. It is the... read more

I love Nike because it's beautiful and the number-one sneaker brand in the world. They have super cool designs and colors, including college colors. My favorite color of all time is university red, and I'm in love with Nike.

Duh! I have Nikes, and I run pretty well in them. They fit well and last for a while. I had Under Armour a while ago, but they broke and got dirty pretty quickly.

Nikes are amazing. I mean, Nike means victory, and victory I shall have! They have great prices, sales, and clearance. My shoes came from the clearance section - only one pair left - and they're fabulous! Go Nike! Nike, Nike! Victory, Victory! Vote for Nike, or else. Please vote.

2 Adidas Adidas AG (stylized as adidas since 1949) is a German multinational corporation, founded and headquartered in Herzogenaurach, Bavaria, that designs and manufactures shoes, clothing and accessories. It is the largest sportswear manufacturer in Europe, and the second largest in the world, after Nike... read more

Adidas made me a sole collector, or maybe a Boost collector. Adidas deserves to be number one. Maybe Nike is good for their basketball shoes, but they still suck. Their shoes look like boots that you can use when the street is flooded.

Adidas has great designs. Also, Adidas has Kanye West, Louis Vuitton, Supreme, Neighborhood, Bape, Mastermind, Kith, and Naked.

"Within the first few years of its introduction, the Superstar was being worn by over 75% of all NBA players. Proof of its revolutionary technology which remains today," says Wikipedia about Adidas Superstar. Adidas is king, from the past until now.

3 Converse Converse is an American shoe company that designs, distributes, and licenses sneakers, skating shoes, lifestyle brand footwear, apparel, and accessories. Founded in 1908, it has been a subsidiary of Nike, Inc. since 2003... read more

Comfort, quality, and a luxury feel are on one hand, but if a legend is to be considered, then Converse is here to guide you through the ages of skateboarding, a free-spirited lifestyle, and rock 'n' roll. No other brand can push Converse to the backseat in terms of legendary Chuck Taylor designs.

I think they should improve their business and marketing, as they are not very operational worldwide. Love, peace, and Converse.

These are really cool. Converse high tops make me feel good about myself and confident. I don't know why - they just do. Additionally, the way Converse feel is a bonus. They are really comfortable and strike a balance between casual and dressy. Anyone could wear them and look both sporty and good.

4 Vans

I vote for Vans because they are of amazing quality and look fantastic. Vans are the best shoes out there, and they are incredibly comfortable! I love Vans! They are the shoes of awesomeness!

I got Vans last year, and they are still of amazing quality. They haven't ripped at all. They got a bit dirty, but they're still great!

No! This brand should be in first place because they are real sneakers! They are so cool. They have great quality and can go with almost any outfit - casual, hipster, sporty, nice casual, for church, for the park, and to the gym.

5 Puma Puma SE, branded as Puma, is a German multinational corporation that designs and manufactures athletic and casual footwear, apparel and accessories, which is headquartered in Herzogenaurach, Bavaria, Germany. Puma is the third largest sportswear manufacturer in the world. The company was founded in... read more

I've had my Pumas for about two years now, and I love them! They sell them at SoftMoc, Foot Locker, and Check them out! They are amazing and cost between $30 and $100, depending on the store and shoe style. I definitely recommend them!

Puma has the best design, no doubt. They are very comfortable and leather as well. You must give them a try.

I've never bought Puma yet, but people say that they are pretty comfortable.

6 Air Jordan

These shoes are very comfy. The air cushioning is very responsive as well. They also look very nice and will earn you lots of respect. While they are a bit pricey, they are definitely worth it.

I have a pair of Aqua 8.0s, and I hope to expand my collection.

I love the Retro 4 and 6's. Why? Because of their colorways. They're telling a story. It's art. It's just too bad that the really nice colorways and collab editions, like the Kaws, are for the very lucky few only.

I love Air Jordan because it is the coolest sneaker ever. I like the colors and style. I like the Jordan Retro 10 and Air Jordan 1 Midtop. Air Jordan represents greatness. Also, they're both Nike.

7 Asics

Asics are very comfy and, unlike other shoe brands that I wear, they are solid and sturdy in the best ways. The shoe may not always look the best, but they are great for running. Once I started wearing Asics for running, I noticed that I didn't get my usual running sores.

This is simply the world's most sophisticated running platform - without the distraction and unneeded expense of superficially attractive collector's editions.

The only problem with these sneakers is that they never break, so you have no excuse to buy new ones. I buy new ones anyway. They are super comfortable and pretty too.

8 DC

These are the best kicks I have ever seen. I'm a graphic designer, and I'm not easily impressed. As phlegmatic as I am, I give DC my vote. Hands down, it kicks ass.

These are pretty much the only sneakers I own. They look amazing and are some of the comfiest shoes I own.

This is the most comfortable brand of shoes I have ever had the pleasure of wearing.

9 Reebok Reebok International Limited is an American fitness footwear and clothing manufacturer that is a part of Authentic Brands Group. It was established in England in 1958 as a companion company to J.W. Foster and Sons, a sporting goods company which had been founded in 1895 in Bolton, Lancashire. From 1958... read more

Since I tried Reebok, I haven't worn any other brand. Their shoes are very comfortable. The design of Reebok Classics is the best on the market, and they are reasonably priced.

My wife and I wear Reebok. They are well-made and very comfortable. A podiatrist also recommended them.

10 Fila
The Contenders
11 New Balance New Balance Athletics, Inc. (NB), best known as simply New Balance, is one of the world's major sports footwear and apparel manufacturers. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, the multinational corporation was founded in 1906 as the New Balance Arch Support Company.

The 811! New Balance is the best support sneaker ever made. It offers comfort, arch support, and balance. Intense arch support and secure movement on all terrains! The three pairs I have had for 15 years now must be replaced.

I love the style and performance. Please recycle the 811 New Balance shoe. Thank you.

Comfortable with simple, universal designs. Affordable prices. A wide variety of sizes and widths to fit your foot. The size factor is what brought me to them, and I won't go anywhere else.

I've owned Nike, Converse, and all the big brands, and nothing compares to the comfort, quality, and value of New Balance shoes.

12 Champion

I have the Octoflexes. They are so light and comfortable. I like them better than the Free Run 2. I think this is a great shoe for both runners and couch potatoes.

Yeah, these are quite light and comfortable - pretty good for running.

I have green and black Champions at home. I have a good interest in them.

13 Skechers

I have had three pairs of shoes from this brand for more than three years. I use them daily over hard sand, and they are almost as new. The price was around $40.00 on Amazon.

They may be a put-down brand, but their memory foam shoes are heavenly yet stylish.

14 Supra

Supras look so cool! They are the best high-tops I've ever seen! I have, like, every pair of Vaiders they have. My favorite pair is my snake teal Vaiders. They are so attractive! I love them! They leave my boys hanging. I would kill to buy every pair they have in the store! Thank you, inventor of Supra!

I have used Nike, Adidas, and Puma, but Supra is different from all the brands. I have two Nikes, three Pumas, five Supras, and one Nike Jordan. Of these, the ones I use the most are Supra and Puma. They are comfortable and both have a fresh collection.

Supras are the best sneakers. Justin Bieber also wears Supra sneakers. They are just awesome and look awesome too!

15 Ellesse
16 Lacoste
17 Marc Ecko

It's classic and very comfortable. Good designs, worth the price.

18 Lotto
19 Vlado

I have a Jordan collection and just discovered Vlado. I calculated that my Hares are worth roughly three pairs of equally nice sneakers from Vlado. A new collection, here I come!

Vlado sneakers are really underrated. They have some of the nicest high tops I have ever seen.

I have a collection of almost all sneakers, but not Vlado.

20 Diadora
21 Yeezy
22 Royal
23 Avalanche
24 Etnies
25 Under Armour Under Armour, Inc. is an American sports equipment company that manufactures footwear, sports and casual apparel. Under Armour's global headquarters are located in Baltimore, Maryland, with additional offices located in Amsterdam (European headquarters), Austin, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Houston, Jakarta,... read more

I love Under Armour so much, especially their Currys. If I were to have my own sneaker, I would partner up with them because the quality is great. They are comfortable, nice-looking, and worth the price.

This ranking is ridiculously low. I understand that because they are my favorite doesn't mean everyone agrees, but I'm stunned at how low UA is ranked.

This brand should definitely be in the top 5. It's one of the most famous brands on Earth.
