THONdrobe Trend: Nike Sneakers

If you were wondering which shoes to wear to THON 2013, here’s what the dancers are wearing on their feet for 46 hours!

Out of the 51 dancers polled, 25 people wore Nike. When looking at any group of dancers, there are at least two Nike pairs for every other brand. One dancer said he wears Nike because he “just always bought them and they are comfortable.”

Second to Nike is Asics with 11 people, followed by Sacouny and Flip Flops both at 5. Uggs, Rebock, Converse, NewBalance, Puma, Adidas and Under Armor are alarmingly scarce among the crowd.
