Their business immediately met with enthusiasts and made good profits. Just 8 years after opening the first store, the first London store was opened on Oxford Street in London. Soon after in December 2001, the company acquired 200 more stores with the acquisition of First Sport, expanding their rapidly growing business.

The best selling shoe at JD: Vans Old Skool

Black and white, in checkerboard pattern or in bright colors the sneaker from the skateboard scene is the must have and that for a very long time. 2 years ago he celebrated his comeback and hit like a grenade – the Vans Old Skool. The Old Skool is a unisex sneaker, but it is the most sold sneaker for men in the JD. Why is that? The simple design and the plain colors appeal to the men.

Ladies love the dad look: Nike M2K
The ladies love this shoe and want to wear it all. Contrary to what you might think, this sneaker does not make your foot look slim, on the contrary, it makes your foot look bigger because the design of the shoe is oversized. Why is this shoe so popular? First of all, the shoe reminds us of the shoes our fathers used to wear. The dad look is back in. That’s why JD is betting on the shoes, with complete success. Not only does it have that retro look, it is also easy to put on, very comfortable and lighter than it looks. The color combination of white and gray, is a hit with the ladies. Why nobody is afraid of his white shoes? Easy – the shoes are made of leather, so they are much easier to clean and dirt resistant. Small details refine the M2K’s design and give it a somewhat abstract look. JD’s top seller among women.
Back from the Past: Nike Air Max 97
First released in 1997, the sneaker is making a huge comeback and is sweeping sneaker lovers off their feet. The improved edition of the then released shoe is filling the stores with customers. The unisex sneaker with different colors is worn by every generation and reminds of the late 90s. The special thing about this shoe is that it looks big but makes a narrow impression on the foot. This color model is the favorite of women and suits every lady who likes it more sporty or who knows how to combine well. And like every Nike Air, it comes with the typical Air sole. A good hold and comfortable suspension speak here for the success of the reborn sneaker.
Bit higher with the sole : Nike Air Force Sage
You’re probably wondering, didn’t we have this shoe before and why is it called Sage? The Nike Air Force Sage is very similar to the Nike Air Force but with tiny differences. Unlike the Nike Air Force, the Nike Air Force Sage is only available in women’s sizes. The toe of the Sage is also different here, much more feminine and rounded. And the highlight of the Nike Air Force Sage is the platform sole, which gives you a few extra inches. That is the secret of the Sage, the platform. Platform shoes are in and every woman owns a pair of shoes with platform at home. To give it a feminine touch Nike uses velour as upper material in some Sage models. But don’t worry, the Sage is also available in many different variations and color constellations.
