A new report has come out about the most popular selling sneakers in each state and I am completely surprised about which shoe brand takes the number one spot in the Land of Lincoln.

I have never been much of a "sneaker head" mainly that's because as a big guy with giant feet, growing up I was limited to what I could wear comfortably. Don't get me wrong I love my New Balance but I have always wanted a pair of Air Jordan's, that's why I was shocked to learn that when it comes to sneaker popularity in the state of Illinois a different Chicago legend takes the top spot over MJ.

According to the website thesolesupplier.co.uk they ranked the most popular sneaker in each country, and then broke them down by states in the United States, and they say the most Popular Sneaker Brand in the state of Illinois is Kanye West's Yeezy's. Now their research is apparently based off internet searches in each state for a particular shoe and brand of shoe, so that makes sense because there is NO WAY Yeezy's are the top selling shoe in Illinois.

As far as Missouri goes, well their research says the number one shoe brand is Adidas, and for Iowa it is Nike. When you look at the United States as a whole they say the number one shoe brand is Nike, followed by Air Jordan, and then Yeezy's in 3rd.

I don't know about you all but I have ZERO desire to ever own a pair of Yeezy's do you...?

Using March 2019 data from the Social Security Administration, Stacker compiled a list of the most popular names in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C., according to their 2018 SSA rankings. The top five boy names and top five girl names are listed for each state, as well as the number of babies born in 2018 with that name. Historically common names like Michael only made the top five in three states, while the less common name Harper ranks in the top five for 22 states.
