    I'm a Reebok person... and since Adidas bought Reebok, that makes me an Adidas person (Adidas person by marriage? :D). I also like New Balance.

    I will never buy a Nike as I do not like their labour practises.

    Neither. I haven't had an item of clothing with anything written on it, with the exception of an AIM, American Indian Movement T-shirt, for 25 years. Logos are for retards.:p

    I only wear Adidas or New Balance. I tried on a pair of Nike shoes a few years ago and they did not "feel" right on my feet. I also think a lot of the Nike shoes look pretty ugly. Don't get me wrong, some of the older style Nike shoes look pretty cool, but comfort is numero uno for me.

    K-Swiss for everything. Pumas are good gym shoes too.

    Adidas for regular shoes and golf shoes(wider)
    Nike for cleats
    Adidas for shorts (last longer)
    Nike (and UA) for under shirts for working out and sports.

    So I guess I'm split. It just depends on the application/situation....

    Either

    I don't think I have a preference really.

    I have Adidas football boots, trainers made by both, and clothing made by both.

    I'm more of a Puma person. I used to be Reebok, then Nike, then Adidas and I've finally settled on Puma. :cool:

    Having never used either brand, I can't really say I have a preference for one over the other. Hard to believe, but true.

    I like Adidas plimsols as I find them very comfortable, in saying that though I don't really harbour any serious brand loyalty towards them.

    I can't think of any other branded sportswear I wear as it happens, other than football shirts – and in this instance I buy the shirt for the club or country rather than because it's made by a particular manufacturer. I only own one shirt from each of Nike and Adidas (and don't have a preference in terms of quality or what have you), but own far more by the likes of Umbro and Diadora, for example.

    Most of the athletic shoes I've purchased in the last five or so years have been Pumas. I've bought a pair of adidas, and a couple pair of Nike, maybe, but most have been Pumas.

    I have been very tempted to try another pair of Nike. I have flat feet and that is typically an issue for me. I've spent $200 on custom fit running shoes only to find out that they hurt my feet just as bad as a $50 pair. The only thing I think the customs did was align my body better.

    That being said, I've seen some amazing things come from Nike but after buying a pair of NB in a TJ Maxx in Utica, NY on a whim when I forgot my so-called custom shoes ... I have been hooked. The ones I have now were $20 and they're pretty awesome but they're wearing. They don't look old because I've worn them mostly in the gym but the insides start to degrade over time.

    I guess my answer is I'm a NB fan, if I knew I could buy a pair of Nike and wear them for a day then return them if they're no good, I would probably try out a pair.

    Nike all the way.

    I have about ten pairs of different running, basketball, and skateboarding shoes from them.

    I prefer Nike more but I really don't mind, I don't have a strong preference.

    Neither, I'm a new balance person. These running shoes fit me the best. I found that nike hurt my feet when I run.

    If you're talking running shoes, I'm a New Balance person. :)
