"Best Selling Sneakers" is a recurring franchise that ranks the 10 most successful sneakers on the Grailed marketplace, ranked by the highest number of gross transactions in a given time period.

Another year in the books, another year of sell-out sneakers. While 2020 was nowhere near normal, the fact of the matter is that "normal" sneakers stole the show. Chalk it up to a sense of familiarity in an uncertain time, or chalk it up to the timeless appeal of certain silhouettes, but we can't help but notice that the most popular kicks of 2020 were relatively tame.

One of the more "normal" sneakers on the market today, the classic, all-white Nike Air Force 1 dominated on Grailed, holding the best sell-through rate on the marketplace in 2020. Of course, that's probably thanks to a combination of easy-to-wear aesthetics and reasonable price (even at retail), be we can't blame people for wanting to wear a sneaker that's been relevant for nearly 40 years (and counting).

Speaking of decades-long dominance, the Jordan I is easily the most popular individual silhouette—once you factor in the myriad of different colorways and releases. While the Air Force 1 in tonal white is certainly a major crowd pleasure across the fashion spectrum, it's hard to top the legacy of the Jordan I... especially when it's available in virtually every form or fashion, no matter what style tribe you belong to.

That's not to say that adidas (via Yeezy) didn't make a splash this year. An OG iteration of the Yeezy 750 and two clean colorways of the immensely popular Yeezy 350 v2 silhouete made sure that the Three Stripes weren't ignored during 2020.

Of course, Grailed is a fashion-focused platform, with thousands of different designer labels—and designer sneakers—on offer. It stands to reason that at least one pair of luxury kicks would land on the list; we're not too surprised to see that Rick Owens' signature Geobasket silhouette made the cut and helped round out this "best of" list.
