Best Selling Running Shoes – Spring 2017

      Comments Off on Best Selling Running Shoes – Spring 2017

The first quarter of 2017 is over, and here at Running Warehouse we like to take a step back and dig into our data to see which shoes sold the best. After looking at the numbers and excluding any clearance sales, we have created a list of models (by color) that sold the highest volume during Spring 2017.

On the men’s side, the Saucony Kinvara 7 was one of the top performers of the season. With five colors making the men’s top 25 list, this shoe continued to provide a reliable option for the runner seeking a versatile, low offset trainer. Within the zero drop performance category, the Altra Escalante was the go-to shoe. With two colors making the top 25 list, the rather niche shoe had a fantastic debut season.

For the past few seasons, HOKA ONE ONE has been a top performer and Spring 2017 was no different. New introductions such as the Hupana and the Arahi, as well as favorites like the Clayton and Clifton 3, put a total of nine HOKA shoes on the men’s top 25 list.

With the track and road racing seasons in full swing, it’s also no shock to see several competition shoes make the men’s top 25 list. On the road side, the Nike Zoom Streak LT 3 and ASICS Gel DS Racer 11 ranked 8th and 21st respectively. For track and field footwear, two colors of the Nike Zoom Victory 3 and two colors of the Nike Zoom Rival SD 2 also made the list.

On the women’s side, we saw some similarities in best sellers. The Kinvara 7 had three colors make the top five and HOKA ONE ONE continued to dominate with nine shoes in the top 25. The Escalante was also able to squeeze onto the list along with two colors of the One 2.5. While the New Balance MT 10 was barely able to make it onto the men’s top 25 list, the WT10 made a strong presence on the women’s side ranking 9th overall.

Even though there are plenty of performance shoes that made the women’s list, in general we saw more standard trainers than the men’s side. Some notable shoes include the Brooks Ghost 9, ASICS GT 2000 5, and the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17.

Below are the full lists for the top 25 best sellers* in the first quarter of 2017.
