The 10 Most Popular Adidas Sneakers Right Now
Check out the Three Stripes' most popular pairs.
(SPOT.ph) Here’s a fun drinking-game idea: Take a shot every time you see someone rocking an Adidas pair—you’d be wasted faster than you could say “sneakers!” Founded in 1924 as the Dassler Brothers Shoe Company and officially changing its name in 1949 to the one we know now, Adidas has since been a household name around the world. And while the company has expanded to become an all-around sports and lifestyle apparel brand, we want to zoom in on what first propelled Adidas to global fame: their shoes. Below, we list some of The Three Stripes’ best-selling sneakers so far this year, which include some obvious styles to other surprise pairs.

Take a look at the 10 best-selling sneakers by Adidas so far this year:
Ultraboost 20 (P9,500)
The Adidas Ultraboost 20 features a sock-like fit so you’ll have a nice, snug fit all day. These were designed with runners in mind—the elastic heel and stitched-in knit body offer maximum comfort, flexibility, and cushioning—but we’d totally have these on if we knew we were going to be on our feet all day.
Ultraboost OG (P8,900)
The Ultraboost OGs are yet another member of the Adidas Ultraboost line made specially for running. The lightweight, stretchy knit material of the shoe’s upper adapt to your foot as you use them, so you’re comfortable with every step. This also features Adidas’ trademark Continental Rubber outsole that gives you the best traction in wet or dry weather.
AlphaEDGE 4D (P16,000)
The AlphaEDGE 4D shoes from Adidas are some of its most popular cross-trainers, since they’re designed for peak performance while still looking stylish. The midsoles of this pair are 3D printed and designed to absorb shock and provide cushioning wherever needed. The upper of the shoe is made from a combination of textile and mesh for comfort and durability. And let’s not ignore those iridescent panels that give the pair a nice finishing touch!
Is this really an Adidas bestsellers list if the Adidas Superstar isn’t on it? We didn’t think so. We’re sure you’ve seen this timeless pair around, with the recognizable three-stripe detail along the sides, the protective shell toe, and a few gold pops that give it the OG look. Fun fact: Did you know these styles were originally made in the '70s for basketball courts?
Stan Smith (P4,800)
Just like the Adidas Superstars, it's really not a surprise that the Stan Smith is on this list. Named and inspired by former world number one tennis champ (and, interestingly, tennis’ fashion muse back in the day), these shoes are both trendy and classic with their all-white leather and perforated three stripes.
Harden Vol 4 (P7,000)
This popular pair was made in collaboration with NBA star James Harden for basketball games and sports performance, but you’ve probably spotted NBA fans sporting the shoe as casualwear. The design was created to add better support and traction for speed, and the unique rubber outsole was actually inspired by Harden’s actual movement on court.
Continental 80 (P5,300)
A throwback to the '80s, the Continental 80 is a retro-inspired design with a minimalist, all-white colorway broken only by the stylish two-tone stripes. This pair also has a split rubber sole at the bottom that differentiates it from the other casual styles of the brand. It has the signature leather body you love from Adidas’ lifestyle sneakers and adds a classic French terry lining to top off the sneakers’ look.
D.O.N. Issue #1 (P5,500)
Adidas created this signature line with NBA rising star, Donovan Mitchell. These sneakers feature a unique herringbone pattern on the multi-colored rubber outsoles that add extra grip and traction. The locked-down fit is also responsive to your feet and movements, but we didn’t expect anything less for a pair made with basketball players and fans in mind.
The Adidas NMDs are a modern revamp of the '80s racing shoes. They feature a knit upper for ultimate flexibility and support, and they come with the brand’s special Boost midsole technology that offers better cushioning for lengthened support. You can also spot this pair from a mile away with their unique midsole detail by the heel.
Originals SL 80 (P5,800)
The stylish SL 80 was born as a racing shoe, but it has since evolved into a chic pair of must-have trainers to add a retro vibe to any casual look. They’re made with nylon and suede and are fashioned with a multi-tone design and the classic three-stripe detail on the sides—perfect for your athleisure looks!
