Nike or Adidas?

Nike and Adidas are arguably two of the most popular brands in the whole world. If you walk down the street, chances are you will see someone wearing one of the two brands. While they are both extremely popular, they cannot be the same. In 2020, Nike brought in a whopping 44.54 billion dollars in sales. That is a disgusting amount of money. In 2020, Adidas brought in 22.66 billion dollars, that is still so much money, but just nearly misses the half mark of Nike’s sales. Other than looking at their sales, there is also an opinion part of this argument.

Students here at FHS have worn and seen both brands. Here are their opinions on which is best.

“Nike makes shoes and clothes that are way better than Adidas. The argument is not even close. Nike takes the cake,” sophomore, Hannah Frasure, said.

Nike shoes are definitely more popular than Adidas. That is a known fact.

“I will wear both of the brands for sure. I do think Nike is better, though. Nike has way better shoes and the overall quality of their brand is better. Although it is very expensive, it is still worth it,” sophomore, Landon Packer, said.

As long as you do not buy Kanye’s shoes from Adidas, they will generally be on the cheap side. Kanye’s shoes are way too expensive.

“Nike sucks! The WHOLE brand is way overpriced and is not worth the money at all! Why would you buy something so expensive that you can just buy from another brand for cheaper? I do not see the appeal at all. STOP WASTING YOUR MONEY,” senior, Lucy Orison, said.

Overall, there is a lot of consideration that goes into which brand is better. It depends on how much money you want to spend, and what you think looks better. There are also a lot of brands other than Nike and Adidas that are probably just as good.
