Technology and innovation are major factors when it comes to the popularity of a brand, but those features and benefits have nothing on the effect of a signature sneaker line. Check out some of the best signature sneaker lines of all-time as we highlight the top 5.
Derrick Rose hasn’t been in the league that long, but with an MVP title and four signature sneakers, adidas made the right decision landing the young star.

Allen Iverson’s partnership with Reebok was the second longest off all-time in basketball next to only Air Jordan himself, so he makes it into the top 5 simply for longevity.
While Jordan started the signature sneaker trend, LeBron is responsible for revamping it and making crazy exclusive colorways available just when the signature sneaker game was looking like it was taking a dive.
When it comes to signature sneakers, Jordan is king. He’s been away from the game for 10 years and his signature line lives on. The Air Jordan line is the end-all, be-all of signature kicks.
