Nike v YEEZY: The 4 Sneakers That Topped Our Bestseller List in June
Some things never change - your sneakers will always crease, YEEZY’s will always drop with little to no notice, and the Nike Dunk Low will always be in high demand. In fact, it topped our bestselling sneakers list for another month in June - seems like sneakerheads just can’t get enough of the old-school, ‘80s-born kick.
Another thing you can count on to always remain the same? Nike and adidas’ rivalry to lead the sneaker market. And what’s the harm in a little healthy competition when it keeps both parties at the top of their game?
Keep reading to discover which 4 sneakers topped our bestseller list in June and - most importantly - get the lay of the land as this battle of the brands continues to unfold.
Nike Dunk Low Retro 'White Black'
Nike’s Dunk Low Retro in White Black held onto its number 1 spot for another month in June - our customers are nothing if not consistent. One of the most sought after sneakers in recent history, the Dunk Low has the likes of Travis Scott and Off-White to thank for its rise to popularity.
Monochrome leathers mean this bestselling sneaker has an ultra classic and versatile feel - perfect for pairing with just about everything in your wardrobe. With the top spot quickly becoming its natural habitat, there’s never been a better moment to invest in this essential kick.
adidas YEEZY 500 'Blush'
If any shoe stood a shot at dethroning the Dunk, it had to be the YEEZY 500; it turned 4 this year, but our June bestseller list proves the iconic dad shoe is just as sought after now as it was back in 2018. Placing at number 2, this adidas x Kanye creation is defined by its chunky sole and plush suede-mesh upper.
Die hard YEEZY followers will recognise the Blush colourway as one of the shoe’s earliest iterations, and possibly one of its most versatile. Re-released back in February, this bestselling sneaker makes an impressive play for Nike’s crown.
adidas YEEZY Boost 350 v2 'Blue Tint'
A list of bestselling sneakers wouldn’t be complete without the adidas YEEZY Boost 350 v2. The sneaker that made YEEZY a household name was unlike anything West had ever produced with Nike - flexible, comfortable and ultra wearable. In the words of Donald Trump - thank you Kanye, very cool.
Gracing this roll call in Blue Tint - a cool, icy blue - the primeknit kick features distinctive zebra stripes and sits atop a cushioning adidas Boost sole. Arguably as iconic as any of Nike’s biggest hits, the 350 continues to assert its dominance.
adidas YEEZY Foam RNNR 'Onyx'
A truly unique silhouette that blurs the lines between sneaker and sandal, the YEEZY Foam RNNR is one of Kanye and adidas’s most distinctive kicks. Defined by its slip-on fit and perforated design, this boundary-pushing model brings new finesse to casual athleisure styling.
With temperatures shooting up, it’s not surprise that the ultra-breathable Onyx Foam RNNR was a June bestseller. It’s about time you gave your slides a day off, after all.
Matching the popularity of Nike’s Dunk is no mean feat, but adidas YEEZY came pretty close to doing exactly that in June. While the Three Stripes does its best to close in, Nike’s busy cooking up fresh Dunk Low colourways like White Paisley - scheduled for release next week - to remain on top this summer.
