We all love sneakers but have you ever wonder who the top sneaker maker in the world is? If so, here we go. Contrary to what their name might suggest, basketball, tennis and running shoes are in no way confined to courts and tracks these days.
With annual footwear sales of $22.3 billion, Nike is still number 1 in the global sneakers market. Having started as an enterprise licensing Japanese running shoes for the American market, Nike quickly developed its own name in the 1970s when some of the company’s most iconic silhouettes were introduced.
Interestingly some of the models released in the 1970s are still among Nike’s most popular shoes today. The sneaker market is probably unique in the way it’s constantly moving between innovation and nostalgia, with shoes designed in the 1970s and 1980s still selling equally well or, in many cases, better than shoes featuring state-of-the-art technology.
