Footwear industry analyst Matt Powell has released his notes on athletic footwear performance in the third quarter of 2018. While his report goes into detail about which segments of the market saw the biggest growth and which brands have cause for concern, Powell also revealed the top-selling sneakers, as he does every quarter.

This time the list includes entries from brands such as Nike, Converse, Vans, and adidas. The Swoosh dominates the list with six entries, as well as one each from subsidiaries Converse and Jordan Brand. Vans and adidas round out the list with one shoe each.

Topping the bestseller list is the Nike Tanjun, which has been the top-selling shoe overall for the last two years and topped the list in Q1 and Q2 this year.

Check out the list in full below and then flip through each of the corresponding images in the gallery above.
