Nike Hyperdunk 2013

Over 270 NBA Players Reportedly Wear Nike Sneakers

Nike may not have Kanye West on its roster anymore, but on the court, the Swoosh is doing just fine.

According to Forbes (who dug through the sneaker database at Hoopshype) a total of 278 NBA players currently play in Nike-branded shoes—more than all other brands combined. So in case you doubted Nike’s dominance in the basketball footwear landscape before, the proof is in the numbers.

As expected, adidas is second with 71 players who endorse the brand in the association, with Jordan Brand (a subdivision of Nike) coming in third place with 32 players.

Of the countless Nike models to choose from, the most popular pro choice is the Hyperdunk 2013, which is currently worn by 80 players. The Nike Hyper Quickness comes in at second with 39 players who wear the shoe.
