Who makes the best sneakers? If you're looking for some great sneakers companies, you've come to the right place. The biggest names in footwear are laid out below, allowing you to research some popular shoe brands before making purchasing decisions.

There’s nothing more comfortable than a brand new pair of shoes. The smell of stretched leather as you open up the box and gaze at the beautiful qualities of a new pair of athletic shoes is timeless. In fact, shoes are one of the few items of clothing that literally everybody looks good in! 

This list includes the top, name-brand slippers for all ages, including: Nike, Adidas, Columbia, The North Face, Steve Madden, Sketchers, Prada, Gucci, Eddie Bauer, Ralph Lauren, Levi’s, Lacoste, Puma, Guess and Reebok. When searching for those perfect-fitting shoes, always remember that the higher the price usually means higher quality. Shoes that are more expensive often last the longest, so the durability factor causes many people to want to invest in them. However, some affordable shoes may be of decent quality. Just research carefully! Don’t sacrifice comfort for style either; oftentimes a great shoe can be found that has both the look you want with the advantage of comfort. Remember that there’s not much of a point to purchasing a new pair of shoes if you can’t even wear them the entire day without them hurting your feet!
