The Best Nike Sneakers
Here’s a list of the best Nike sneakers out there today.
1. Nike Air Force 1 Mid
Transcending foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One, the aircraft that carries the U.S. President. It was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionizing the game for players like Moses Malone and Charles Barkley while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood to the blacktop to the core of hip-hop culture. Today the Nike Air Force 1 stays true to its roots with soft, springy cushioning and a massive midsole, but the Nike Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe’s status as an icon.
2. Nike SBs
Nike SBs are KINGS. At first, Nike was shunned by independent skate shops and many refused to carry them, but now the hype for them meant turning away tons of business. Found in materials and colors, no other sneaker brand outdoes Nike now in the skateboarding scene. Blazer Lows, Dunk Lows, and anything released by Koston or Janoski are the biggest sellers.
Since his game-winning shot that brought the National Championship to North Carolina, Michael Jordan has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness. He took the court in 1985 wearing the original Air Jordan I, setting a new standard for performance and style, simultaneously breaking league rules and his opponents’ will while capturing the imagination of fans worldwide. Since then, the AJ1 has become legend. You can also check out other popular Jordans for men, women, or kids.
4. Nike Air Max
The Nike Air Max 1 is embraced by runners and street fashionistas alike. In a sprawled out city like Los Angeles for example, which is home to hundreds of cultures and sub-cultures, different models of the Max are worn more than others. The most popular models: the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Air Max 95, and the Air Max 97. These are often spotted worn with dark denim and white t-shirts, dark windbreakers, nylon track suits, gym clothes, and evening club wear.

5. Nike Free Run+ 2
Taking a cue from the intricate workings of the bare foot, the Nike Free Run+ 2 Running Shoe is designed to maximize the foot’s natural range of motion while providing protection and cushioning for a smooth ride. Without sacrificing the feel of barefoot running, the Nike Free Run+ 2 Shoe delivers a plush, cushioned ride. Phylite material seamlessly fuses the midsole with the outsole, creating a one-piece design that’s as resilient as it is durable. The molded sockliner mimics the curves of the foot for a comfortable, supportive fit.
6. SB Eric Koston
Eric Koston made sure to bring the heat with his signature shoe featuring a new Lunarlon insole, TPU reinforced suede upper, neoprene liner, Nike SB’s signature low ride cupsole construction, extra toe padding, and so much more.
7. Nike Blazer High
The Nike Blazer Highs are super casual high top sneakers that feature high-cut style for plenty of ankle support and a rubber outsole for supreme traction on city streets and nightclub dance floors. Nike Blazers are probably one of the coolest sneakers around! Also listed in the Top 10 Sneakers for both men and women, Blazers can be worn with just about anything. These are the type of sneakers you add to your collection in various colors and materials!
