adidas was born in a small German town more than 70 years ago, but it’s become a global institution. Over the last decade, the Brand with the Three Stripes has gained significant marketshare across the U.S. thanks to a healthy mix of heritage models and futuristic designs. As 2023 winds down, the brand has been reviewing its year and sharing some of its findings with Sneaker News.

According to sales data regarding the best-selling adidas shoes in the U.S., styles from the UltraBOOST family continue to dominate across the country – most notably in Texas. Originals like the adidas Samba and Superstar have a “East versus West” feud going on as the two decades-old designs are most popular in New York, California, and surrounding states. Missouri also showed love to local hero Patrick Mahomes, going out in droves to add his Impact FLX 1 to their collections. Volleyball enthusiasts in Wyoming and South Dakota worked on their craft with the Novaflight and Crazyflight, respectively.

You can shop all of the Three Stripes’ most popular shoes across the 50 states via adidas.com right now, and continue ahead to see the best-selling adidas shoe in yours.
