After confirming that adidas has overtaken Jordan Brand as the number two brand in the United States for sports footwear this past fall, sneaker expert and NDP Group’s sports industry analyst Matt Powell now reveals the top selling footwear for 2017 (in dollar order).

To no surprise, the Roshe-like Nike Tanjun priced at an affordable $65 USD claimed the top spot, which was previously reported as the best-selling sneaker in the United States.

Following closely was Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Star Low (also part of Nike’s branch), the Nike Air Huarache, and adidas’s classic Superstar silhouette taking the fourth spot.

Interestingly, while adidas became the second top sportswear brand last year, Nike and Jordan Brand still dominated the top ten list in footwear sales, as it’s rounded out by the Nike Revolution, Air Jordan 4, Air Jordan 13, Air Jordan 11 and Air Jordan 6, while adidas’ Tubular Shadow was the only other silhouette, aside from the Superstar to grace the list from the Three Stripes.

Now, we’ll wait and see how 2018 will pan out.

In case you missed it, here is how Jordan Brand is stepping out of Michael Jordan’s shadow.
