The Adidas Samba Classic OG is a throwback to the shoe that stormed onto the field in 1950. The Samba hit the market as an indoor soccer shoe. The idea was to provide the athletes with a shoe that would work on icy, hard ground. That idea lead to the suction design on the gum sole. Over the years, different […]

The NPD sports-industry analyst Matt Powell recently revealed a list of the 10 top-selling sneakers of the first quarter of 2018.
All 10 were shoes made by Nike. Nine were either Nike or its Jordan brand, and the 10th was a shoe by Converse, which is also a Nike subsidiary.
For the first time in months, there were no Adidas shoes among the top 10.
None of the top-selling sneakers were performance shoes, continuing the trend away from performance sneakers.
According to the NPD sports-industry analyst Matt Powell, nine of the 10 best-selling sneakers in the first quarter of 2018 were made by either Nike or its Jordan brand. The remaining sneaker was the Converse All Star Low, which is also made by a Nike subsidiary. Powell also noted that for the first time in months, no Adidas shoes were among the 10 best-selling sneakers, in part because the company is diversifying its portfolio.
He explains in his note that the first-quarter sales figures show a continuing shift away from performance and toward lifestyle, thanks to the ongoing athleisure trend. The $65 Nike Tanjun remained in the No. 1 spot based on sales. In February, Powell told Business Insider the affordable shoe posting such strong sales reflected a shift toward a more moderate market.

On a mild Thursday night at the Los Angeles Forum, Nike’s public relations team and a group of journalists from some of the country’s leading lifestyle, tech, and general interest websites gathered to see the debut of Nike’s most ambitious SNKRS stash drop.
The combined effort is the first capsule collection that Nike has done with a musician. It’s also the first time that anyone currently working at the company can remember the apparel company signing on with a musician for select tour merchandise, and the debut of the stash drop through the SNKRS app was the largest the company’s tech had tried to tackle.
For concertgoers, rolling up to the concert in Supreme sweats, Yeezys, Adidas, Pumas… and, of course, Nikes, the SNKRS stash drop would be a surprise. For folks who had downloaded Nike’s SNKRS app, they’d be able to buy and reserve a pair of Kendrick Lamar’s limited edition Cortez Kenny IIIs at the concert.
At least on the first night, things didn’t go as planned.
Working with live events like concerts, where timing is less regimented than at a typical sporting event (which are marked by tip offs and halftimes that adhere to a pretty regimented schedule), proved too much for the initial rollout of the company’s stash drop.
Select NikePlus members received an initial push notification of the Stash drop and a card in the SNKRS feed also advertised the special stash drop, in addition to a notification that flashed onscreen between the (amazing) SchoolboyQ set and SZA’s (equally amazing) performance.
There will be other chances to get the timing down, but for the first concert in Los Angeles, concertgoers were prompted to launch the SNKRS app and try and snag a pair of the limited edition shoes well before the activation actually went live.
Once the shoes did go on sale, the user interface for finding and reserving the shoes didn’t work for everyone there — in fact, only one reporter from the group was able to reserve a pair of the shoes (since that reporter hadn’t saved payment information onto the SNKRS app, those shoes were released).
“I can’t get the app to do what I need,” said one concertgoer trying to snag a pair of shoes.
The team at Nike said the concert’s late start caused the miscue. Roughly 30 minutes after the sneakers were supposed to onsale, the activation went live — something journalists were only made aware of when notified by Nike’s public relations team.
Once the sale did go live, the shoes sold out within the first five minutes, although it’s unclear how many were made available through the stash drop (Nike declined to provide a number).
Nike’s repeating the stash drop for shows in Houston, New York, Boston and Chicago.
Unveiled earlier this year through a collaboration with the NBA, the NikeConnect app allows users to access information on players and stats through a label enabled with near field communications chips.
Nike’s Air Force Ones enabled with the NikeConnect tech will open a special limited release sneaker sale opportunity called “The Choice”, but Nike has higher hopes for the technology.
“We would love to be able to award sweat equity with access to exclusive products or a partnership,” said a spokesperson for the company in an interview last year.
“NikeConnect [is] a great way for us to get interesting data about our members and deliver unlocks that are relevant to those members,” the spokesperson said.
Beyond the unlocks for exclusive sneaker offers, Nike is thinking about ways to include all of its technology partners in ways that benefit NikeConnect, NikePlus, and SNKRS users.
“We’re excited to learn how unlocks are being received right now,” said the spokesperson. “There is a pretty comprehensive ecosystem of value that we’ve been building for our members… Members who are really active with us are getting rewards or achievements [and] that could include partners like Apple… that we’ll be bringing to the table to round out your whole holistic sport experience.”
