Those Beijing 6's are terrible. Easily the worst shoe in that group, maybe the worst out of all of them. But none of the other choices were THAT bad, even if they're not all the ones I voted for.
wow burgandy 5's over flint grey 12's! and i was suprised french 7's didnt get higher votes a shoe that the man himself donned on court. also the chambrays or the 14's should have got picked over the beijing 6's just my opinion tho
Exactly one of the two shoes i voted for won in each group. Not a bad selection, it's nice to see that colorways didn't get voted on just because they're limited.
Fucking Stupid. The burgundy 5s suck ass. Wolf Greys, Tokyo 23, EA Laney and Quai 54 are all way better 5 colorways. No way they're ahead of DB 4s or Dave White 1s. Also the Thunder 4s over Bin 23 13s? seriously?
First and The 2 finals will prolly be South Beach LeBrons and Concord 11s.. 2 pairs of sneakers none of ya can get
