The data from the first three months of 2012 is in. If you’ve followed general footwear industry trends and habits for any given amount of time, all the top selling shoes from Q1 should be expected. If not, take a look at the list, courtesy of our friend Matt Powell, analyst at SportsOneSource.
– Nike Air Force 1 Low (White)
– Nike Air Force 1 Mid (White)
– Air Jordan 4 Retro (“Cement”)
– Air Jordan 10 Retro (“Stealth”)
– Air Jordan 12 Retro (“Playoffs”)
– Nike Dual Fusion Training
– Nike Air Monarch IV
To recap: white-on-white Air Force 1‘s never go out of style, Nike’s Air Monarch franchise is cheap and has long-running been one of the biggest selling shoes in the company’s history, Dual Fusion is mid-point priced and apparently being scooped up en masse, and then you’ve got your mass produced (but highly in demand) Air Jordan retro product that all carries high price tags and sell out instantly, making them easy top sellers bait. Or cliffs notes: Nike Inc. all the way down.
