Which Athletic Brand Will Dominate Sales This Spring?

It’s pretty hard to deny: Athletic and athleisure trends are winning right now.

As more consumers embrace their casual sides, brands with product offerings in the space seem to be enjoying a form of immunity to otherwise lackluster retail sales.

But while athleisure is certainly a rewarding category to play in these days, the success of the space naturally yields stronger competition.

So, who is really dominating athletic shoe sales this spring?

Here, FN reviews the financial performance of three of the top athletic brands during the last quarter and shares analysts’ projections for the current quarter (spring).
