Top 10 Sports Shoe Brands

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 world's largest supplier of athletic shoes and apparel and a major manufacturer of sports equipment,... read more

I've grown up wearing Nike, and I always will. I have about 8 or 9 pairs, and there are always new ones that come out every season that I must have. They're really comfy, and they have a wide selection for kids, women, and adults. Many stores carry them, so it's very easy to find a pair that few people have.

We bought a Nike pair that cost 2,500 Philippine pesos. It has some of the best running shoes I have ever seen. Even though it is one size bigger, it's still great for running, walking, and jogging. It even looks good in casual style. It's very trendy and comfortable to wear. Best shoe ever! I suggest everyone buy Nike shoes.

I think Nike is a brand that has so many big stars linked with it from different segments, which makes Nike a very popular brand around the world. Players like Ronaldo endorse this brand. Last but not least, the shoes are fabulous, with super comfort and looks.

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. It is the holding company for the Adidas Group, which consists 8.33% stake of the football club Bayern... read more

Lightweight and tough, it's Adidas. I have a black pair with three red stripes, the logo of Adidas shoes, which I bought a year ago. Just a few days before that, I had purchased Woodland shoes, which were too heavy because I went for their look. So, I chose lighter Adidas shoes, which are as tough as Woodland and look fabulous. And the Adidas pair is the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. Don't make the mistake of buying heavy shoes like Woodland. Lightweight and tough, it's Adidas.

Look, Adidas is the best. It's very comfortable and easy to walk and run in. I have tried shoes from Nike and Puma, but Adidas is the best. Nike charges a lot of money, and their shoes are pathetic. Adidas has contracts with some great sportsmen like Kevin Peterson and Sachin Tendulkar. It also has contracts with my favorite clubs like Real Madrid and the Red Devils, Manchester United. I would rate Adidas above Nike. Sorry, I should not say that Nike's shoes are pathetic. They are also good. But Adidas is number one, and Nike is number two. Pakistan Zindabad!

3 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 until 1986, the brand featured the Union Jack flag in its logo to signify the origins of the company... read more

Reebok is an amazing brand that has been on the rise ever since it was purchased by Adidas in 2006. I love how the company is focused on athletes who like to do CrossFit and weightlifting as well. I see this company doing great things in the future, especially in the footwear department. If you are an avid lifter like myself, you will appreciate this brand.

Reebok is the most reliable, amazingly comfortable, and flexible shoe I've ever worn. When it comes to their ZigTech, nothing beats them. I've worn Nike, Adidas, and New Balance shoes in the last few years, but nothing compares.

Reeboks are cool. I love the Zig shoes. Their website is great and easy to use. I really enjoy the way they have their "design your own shoe" setup. Also, Reebok shoes are very durable. They last long and are great quality for their price.

4 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 1948 by Rudolf Dassler. In 1924, Rudolf and his brother Adolf "Adi" Dassler had jointly formed the company... read more

Puma is the best among the best! The king among the kings! Although Jaguar is the fastest - sarcastic - I think Puma is really the best to the fifth power! And it's not that expensive compared to other shoe brands. For less than 80 dollars, you'll get high-quality, good-looking, and comfortable shoes.

I don't know whether PUMA is better than Nike or Adidas, but what I do know is that the finish of PUMA is classy! No sneaker from other brands looks as cool as PUMA does. Plus, the Future Suede models are among the best.

Everyone knows that PUMA is much cheaper than Nike and also cheaper than Adidas.

Pumas are awesome. Nike shoes wear out so quickly. I have a pair of soccer boots from Nike that split, and they are so expensive. Pumas are cheap and good quality. They might not have the best design, but it doesn't matter. Pumas are awesome.

Remember, YOLO.

5 Jordan

How on earth is Jordan ranked below Reebok? I mean, Reebok? Jordan is the best trainer brand. Yes, they are expensive for some people, but they are amazing shoes. If you told your friend you bought a pair of Reebok trainers, you would definitely get laughed at. But if you said you got Jordans, they would be impressed. Reebok has nothing on Jordan.

How can Jordan possibly not be number one? Jordans come in all sorts of varieties. You also can't ignore the fact that these amazing shoes were inspired by the greatest NBA player of all time, Michael Jordan. So if you like shoes with variety and swag, these should be number one.

Jordans are basketball shoes and training shoes. Jordan's training sneakers are good enough for basketball training but not for running. I think that's what they mean by sneakers.

6 Asics

Personally, I think Asics sport shoes are extremely comfortable and fit my foot perfectly. Other times, other brands of shoes don't fit that well on my feet. Asics has a great variety, and I've had this one pair of GEL Asics for over 6 years and there have been no holes in them since. I really recommend them to anyone who loves comfortable shoes for walking, exercising, or even going out. Asics should definitely be at the top because they're comfortable, fashionable, and just awesome! Can't wait to get myself another pair soon!

I have knee problems (I've had two surgeries on one knee and am going for my third on my other knee in August). I can't do anything without knee pain! Asics have the best support, especially for long-distance runners like me. I will not quit being a long-distance runner because of my knees! Nike shouldn't be first! Nikes offer no support for your knees, ankles, or hips! Also, Reebok? Really? Reebok is like a department store brand! And Vans, Puma, and Converse? Seriously? No use for these shoes whatsoever. I'd rather go for a run in bare feet than in Pumas!

7 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, London, Mexico City, Munich, New York City, Panama City (international headquarters), Paris, Pittsburgh,... read more

Not just great durability and quality, but the prices are better! Secondly, they are more stylish. These shoes may be equal to Nike but at half the price! Not only their shoes, but their apparel is also great. Under Armour is the BEST! Next would be FILA.

Low price, lightweight, good quality, and amazingly easy to run with. I love the colors and all of the features. The shape is different than other running shoes, which makes it look epic. I absolutely love them.

Under Armour should be number 1! I have Under Armour items, and they are comfortable. They don't make me sweat, and they are really good for the sports I do!

8 Vans

Vans are the best! They are so cute and are low-key my favorite shoe brand. They are literally the only pairs of shoes I own - I own like 50 pairs of them. I especially love the Vans classics and Vans slip-ons. Vans are the perfect shoes to have for going back to school.

Vans are the best shoe brand. They have super cute styles and are way better than Nike and Skechers. They come in so many different colors and match anything you wear.

Vans go with pretty much everything. They're cute on both guys and girls, match every style, and aren't that expensive. How could they not be number one?

9 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.

New Balance makes the best shoes for people with unique feet, but they have no style and they cost a lot. So only people with odd feet buy them. My dad wears these shoes because his feet are extremely wide. They cost a lot, but they're the only shoes that fit him out of every brand up here.

Nike makes fantastic shoes that are overpriced. Fila got bought out by a Korean company and now makes cheap budget shoes. Adidas owns Reebok, so count them as one, by the way, and they both make terrible shoes. NB and Asics are what pro athletes REALLY train with.

New Balance is the only athletic shoe maker that maintains manufacturing plants in the U.S. This is enough for me to pay a little extra. In addition, the shoes can be found in a wide variety of widths and are much more comfortable than other athletic shoes.

10 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.

During World War II, Converse shifted its manufacturing to make footwear for the military. It was one of the few producers of athletic shoes, and for over a half century the... read more

Converse is my favorite type of shoe because they are super comfy. They come in a wide selection of colors and designs and match almost every outfit - even banana outfits! They also have Marvel designs, along with so much more such as clear/see-through (if you're into that), sunflower, polka dot, clouds, flowers, stars, and sugar skulls. Most of the cooler designs are on Journeys.com or Converse.com. Let's not forget that Converse shoes also have a really nice exterior texture. I'm guessing it feels like silk, but I've never felt silk, so I don't know. I think that Converse should be in first place. Nike is definitely not my favorite, and Adidas isn't better than Converse either. By the way, I don't like Fila, but if you want memory foam shoes, you can go with them. So, let's go, Converse! Let's go, Converse! Let's go, Converse!

The Contenders
11 Saucony

Awesome shoes! Great for running or for any casual wear. Lightweight and stylish. They make your foot look more elegant. Love these shoes.

Awesome shoes for running and for just wearing around. Plus, they are ultra-affordable compared to mainstream brands like Nike.

Best design, best value, and great materials. I own three pairs and am planning on getting some more.

12 FILA

Fila is all about classics. They have the best classic shoes I've ever seen. I used to be all about Nike and Reebok, but I've noticed that Nike shoes aren't as good as they used to be. They now last maybe less than a year. As for Reebok, I've noticed they don't have much variety compared to other sports brands.

Ever since I found Fila, I knew they were for me. They have good shoes that last for years. I bought some Marcello runners for only $30, and they have lasted 2 years. I don't know why these shoes are ranked so low, but all I can say is that this brand is great.

Really good shoes. They don't always last too long, but they are very comfortable and are great for track and field. Also, the designs look cool and not ridiculous like Skechers.

I have tried Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Puma, New Balance, and Fila. Only Fila has the best designs, quality, durability, and comfort, and they last longer than any other brand.

13 Skora
14 Brooks

Really? Brooks are 28th? They are some of, if not the best shoes out there! As far as running goes, which is the top sport for most people, Nike fails miserably. All the shoes in the top 10 on this list aren't even real running shoe brands, with the exception of Asics and New Balance. Brooks, Saucony, Mizunos, Newtons, and even New Balance should be in the top 5, or at least the top 10, based on how many people actually get shoes for running versus other sport-specific shoes.

The best shoe ever. Complete technology for your running shoe needs, infused with DNA cushioning material. It also has the first bio midsole.

Best selection of shoes designed for all types of runners. Just look at the number of Brooks worn at any race.

15 Skechers

Skechers are really great. People just don't like them because you're considered "not popular" or "poor" if you choose this shoe brand. People need to stop hating on Skechers just because they cost less and are considered "less cool."

The most comfortable shoes - even though the price is comparable to Nike, they are more comfortable than any other shoe. I have a pair of Dual-Lite, and they're the best! This brand is too underrated. The brand is not always important.

I had one pair of $30 Skechers sneakers that lasted me for years! The only reason I stopped wearing them was that I outgrew them. They were my favorite shoes ever.

16 Woodland

Fantastic shoes, highly durable and rugged as well. Yes, they are heavy, but still comfortable!

Toughest shoes ever. They bring out status.

Woodland is the best. It provides a royal experience.

17 Columbia
18 Lotto

I have been using the Lotto Navigator brand for the last three months. The shoes are light in weight, good-looking, and comfortable for running. The polishing effect is still present in the shoe. I am satisfied and am recommending them to friends.

I have been using Lotto ZHero Gravity for a long time, and they are superb shoes in terms of styling, comfort, and grip.

They are just amazing, and Kobe Bryant wears them. MJ also wears them. They are simply the best shoes ever.

19 DC

DC shoes offer the best quality and feel great when you wear them. They also have an amazing sense of style, and anyone who has read this knows that!

DC is an awesome shoe brand!

For elite men.

20 Calvin Klein

Best shoes, nice look.

21 K-Swiss

I have a couple of pairs of K-Swiss shoes, and they are amazing. They are very comfortable and long-lasting - I've had them for around 4 years now. They also look good, both on men and women, and with various outfits.

I have these lovely and comfortable shoes. Genuine quality! Nice experience with them. I will suggest them to my friend.

I have had my pair for nearly four years, and they still look pretty good. Unfortunately, many of their shoes look alike.

22 Mizuno

Mizuno offers fantastic quality and durability. Some of them, notably the Ignitus series of soccer shoes, are just indestructible. I like their designs. They come up with some crazy ideas for the colorways, and some of them look like nothing else you'd ever see. They also have a great reputation for comfort.

Mizunos are the best running shoes ever! I had a pair for one year, and they barely wore down. Nike, Jordan, Fila, Adidas - you name it - all wear down after a year or so. These shoes are practically indestructible.

For me personally, none are better. And I've tried most of the top brands.

23 Sparx

Sparx offers very nice quality and comfortable footwear at a price that is affordable for everyone.

Best brand at a low price.

It's good in terms of price.

24 Supra

I love Supra's high-top designs! They're so light and I love them! The quality is also good. They definitely should be ranked higher than many other brands on this list.

If you have swag, you would really like Supras. They have alright coloring - wait, what am I saying? They have the best coloring, and the shoes have all-around swag. That's all!

Supra shoes are very comfortable and have a cool, casual look and feel. They look nice with almost anything you wear and are not expensive.
