Table of contents

The Athletic Footwear segment includes shoes specifically designed for sports purposes (e.g. soccer, tennis, basketball etc.). The definition includes only functional sports shoes. Most so-called "athleisure" footwear or sneakers, i.e. everyday footwear with an athletic appearance, are excluded from this definition since fashion aspects outweigh functional ones. The Athletic Footwear segment has seen an upsurge during the past years and has gained importance in comparison to classic town footwear. The most important brands in this segment are Nike, Adidas and Puma.
