Popularity of Running Shoe Brands Based on Google Search Volume

merryxmas

Last week, when I got bored as I was unwell, I set about making up a list of all the running shoes brands I could think of. Thanks to comments and emails, the list got to 93. I am still not able to run as much as I would like, so for a bit more fun I did this exercise:

I used the Google search volume tool to see how many people are searching for the different running shoe brands. Interpret this data however you wish. The numbers represent the estimated number of times that the words are searched in a month. The data is only based on the brand of the shoe with the words ‘running shoe’ added. Obviously there will be many more and different searches for different permutations of the brand and all the different models of the running shoes brands. Those brands at the bottom returned no searches in Google for their brand name with running shoe appended. They may well have a different search volume without that appended. I am not going to make any claims based on what I found, except to say it was an interesting use of 10 minutes of my time to amuse myself before I put the kids to bed! Merry Christmas everyone.

    This surprises me, with the media hype of vibram and the funny design I would have thought they would have been higher up the list, although alternative phrases may be used by the general public such as toe running shoes ect
