From the resurgence of dad shoes to countless celebrities swapping their heels for kicks on the red carpet, it’s no secret sneakers are at the epicenter of today’s sartorial zeitgeist. To find out exactly which styles are the crème de la crème, retail sales aggregator LovetheSales.com mapped out a list of popular sneaker brands and best-selling styles based on shopping trends of the site’s more than 3 million annual customers. Then they used that information to tally all the shares and hashtags on Instagram of those top styles. Here are the sneakers that made the top 20:

  1. Adidas NMD
  2. Adidas Yeezy Boost 350
  3. Vans Old Skool
  4. Adidas Superstar

The Balenciaga Triple S sat at No. 16, while the Fila Disruptor II earned the last spot at No. 20.
