Does Nike Make the Best Sneakers?
This question is not so simple as the Nike Corporation makes thousands of different models, so they must be the best? I did see a report that stated Nike makes over 10 million different products, This does sound crazy but they do have sales of over 39 Billion with a “B”. Yes! They make a lot of sneakers but are they the best?
Nike dominates Sneaker markets
There is no denying that Nike dominates some product footwear categories. Any visit to your local sporting good store will show you that. But in the case of shoes best really means the best for you! In basketball and running there is no question that Nike is dominating! The sneakers collectors market is NIKE and then a distant second Yeezy branded shoes.
Nike dominates running Technology
At this moment Nike has ignited an arms race in performance running shoes. The record-breaking marathon times of breaking times of with elite Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoge are proof that Nike is doing something special. The discussion of banning the Nike Zoom Vaporfly Next% shows that Nike is back into the business of disrupting “the business”.
Are Nike shoes top quality?
Yes. Both the expensive shoes and the cheap Nike shoes are made to high technical standards. When you buy Nike you are buying a well made shoe. This is not so special, the other big brands Adidas for example offer the same build quality. The difference comes in the materials used. A more expensive shoes will have materials that are stronger, lighter , possibly more flexible depending on the model of the shoe.
What shoe is best for you?
But what makes are shoe really the “Best” is how it works for you! The shoe that is best for your foot shape, flexibility, sporting activity and personal style may not be a Nike. Me personally, I don’t own any and I’m a shoe hound for sure, but the Nike running shoes lasts just don’t feel comfortable to my foot.
So you can go with confidence and get a pair of Nikes- Buy them and Love them, If they work for you! But if you are not 100% in love, don’t be afraid to shop around. You may just find a smaller company that makes the “Best” shoe for you!
