The Best Selling NBA Signature Sneaker Athletes
The basketball sneaker market is bigger than ever-last year the category boasted sales of $4.5 billion here in the US-up 20% from the year prior. That market of courses hinges on signature sneaker lines, which rely on the sport’s biggest names to help tell the stories surrounding their performance footwear and in turn move units. But who are the top performers in that realm? Which athletes had the biggest sales numbers in 2013 as far as their signature sneaker lines here in the US are concerned? You might be able to guess some of the names towards the top, but we have a feeling you’ll see some surprises in the data collected below. Flip through with us to find out the data surrounding the best selling signature athletes in the US as well as our predictions for the future of each.
If the KDs are 200 dollars and above instead of 100 and something then it probably would be the number one on this list. Man those shoes are selling like CRAZY!
man i feel for drose tho....i hope this nigga can come back and ball. obviously not be jumping out the gym, but become chris paul like. Adidas has him until 2025, my god that's a long ways away sheshh...
this years KD model is by far the worst of the lineup tho.....that's what im not getting....the kd iv was the best i swear!
Nike sells the lebrons to alot of colleges around the country so they can have them to play in Kobe n kds aren't as vast in this market even tho the ids have picked up alot here but don't just think that number is solely the retail market
It's so funny when facts come about regarding Kobe Bryant. It's odd as to how his fans come on, then begin to make excuses for him. However, here is a sobering thought for those of you who are still in denial that people just don't like this motherfucker. Derrick Rose hasn't played a full season in two years, and his line for Adidas is damn near equal to that of the "Black Mamba".
Tell'em how you feel again Jim!
I'm not surprised KD's are doing so well they're prolly the nicest looking out of the 3 nike signature lines
With as many cw dropped and sold out of the Kobe 8, I am very surprised that he only sold $50 million. I can't hate though, Lebron has been doing his thing on and off the court. I don't agree with retail being $200 bucks for his shoes...but I guess 2>6...lol
@jaymes86 explain what it does and how i use and i may be interested in buying
@TaylorG_Niggaz them being cheaper than the other athletes shoes could also be a result of them selling "like crazy"
Yeah I don't like this years model either looks like a soccer shoe and the I'd 4 was only 85 bucks n most of the colossus were limited releases Nike probably did that bcuz of the low sales of the 3 previous models
@Longstroke Math is clearly not your strong suit; if you consider the 10 million dollar gap in sales between Bryant & Rose as "damn near equal"...
@BygByrd kobe shoes are also cheaper tho....LBJ is taxin man...shame
@BygByrd Kobe only has 5 rings...
@BygByrd Kobe had a huge year in 2013 as far as sales go. By comparison, $50 million just doesn't seem correct.
@ChrisMunn23 more like 2.25 billion for the Jordan brand
@kicks67 Also maybe more people would buy Lebron's shoes if it's not unreasonably and ridiculously expensive.
@kicks67 Yeah if his shoes isn't that fucking expensive then it definitely wouldn't be No.1 on the list, maybe like No.2,3 or 4. KDs and Kobes are the best selling signature shoes since it released. Hands down. I think we all have this common sense.
@kicks67 maybe because they cost twice as much too
I wasn't clear. I was referring to MJ the g.o.a.t. His shoes aren't even $200. That didn't make much sense as a was talking about Kobe the entire comment. lol
