Hiking, running, walking; they all require proper footwear that protects your joints and your most underrated body parts, your feet. 3 out of 4 people develop foot problems as they age, and although some issues may be hereditary, lack of proper support is a leading cause. Both Nike and Adidas have earned reputations as leaders in the arena of sport footwear, but whose kicks would you rather wear?
From the Air Jordan to the NikeID line, Nike sets trends and has one of the strongest brands in sportswear. Always edgy and on the move, they own the iconic "swish" trademark. Partnerships with top athletes including Kobe Bryant have prompted Nike to modify their shoes for the world's most demanding athletes. In the case of Kobe, Nike continues to make their shoes more lightweight and more supportive of the heel by adding a higher sockliner that better cradles the foot. This doesn't mean that Nike is sacrificing style for function; Kobe's latest shoes still ride low the way a basketball shoe should and have a textured, snake-like shell.
By producing shoes crafted specifically for soccer and running, Adidas established itself as the brand of choice for professional athletes, making them popular in the mainstream. Partnerships with stars like David Beckham have continued this tradition today. Like Nike, Adidas is also intent upon producing lightweight footwear that's in style. They offer adiPRENE cushioning and customizable midfoot support so that runners of all arch types can get the support they need during exercise.
Nike and Adidas strive to have the latest sports apparel and accessories for all your needs while also satisfying your desire for style. As two of the largest brands in the business, they rely upon consumer feedback to develop, maintain, and satisfy their customer base.
