In Forbes’ recently released list of the world’s most valuable brands, Nike comes in at number eighteen overall thanks to a robust $27.5 billion in brand value. In the category of apparel, Nike is sitting pretty at number one, beating out other labels such as Louis Vuitton, Uniqlo, and noted rival adidas. In fact, despite adidas’ impressive efforts in product and brand management/marketing the competition is much less fierce than what bloggers and random tweets suggest. Yes, the Yeezy Boost resells for more than your average Air Jordan Retro.
