The Nike Air Force 1 was the best-selling sneaker of 2021
NDP Vice President and Senior Advisor Matt Powell recently published the results as part of the market research firm Sneakernomics 2021 Year in Review. Amazingly, the top 10 best-selling sneakers of 2021 were the same as those listed in 2020, with only a change in ranking. Nike takes the top five spots, and Nike and Jordan take nine of the 10 positions, with the adidas NMD R1 claiming the only other spot from another sportswear company in 6th place.
Importantly, the data reported here tracks purchases recorded through companies’ point-of-sale systems. Therefore, secondary markets and other e-commerce channels may not have been included in the calculations.
