Thanks to your help, an overwhelming crop of worthy candidates has been narrowed down to the final 32 and we are now ready to kick off our Sneaker News March Madness Non-OG Air Jordan Tournament. If you haven’t been following, this year, our annual march sneaker tourney will feature a battle of the all-time greatest non-original Air Jordan colorways, and as you can see, there is some serious competition here and plenty of room for upsets and Cinderella runs along the way. We’re sure that not everyone will agree with the seedings, but you will have plenty of opportunity to prove us wrong in the voting. Also, you might have noticed the omission of the Air Jordan XI ‘Space Jam’, which was no accident. Due to the dominance of the Air Jordan XI winning our first two march madness tournaments, we sent the Space Jams straight to the sneaker Hall of Fame and let them sit this one out to open up the field for some new blood. (Feel free to spread the word when countless ‘Where’s the Space Jams?‘ comments come forth despite the clarification) You can get a closer look at the brackets over on Sneaker News HD, and stay tuned later tonight for the tip-off of Round 1 voting.
i really want the laneys to win it all but i have a feelings the undftd 4s are going to remain undefeated lol
UNDFTD IV is taking this, no surprise here. Side note; I wish they didn't put the DMP VI's up against the Eminem IV's. Not a fan of those IV's but I'm sure some of you sickos will vote those over the DMP's.
if we leave out the limited aspect and assume everything was a general release just checking out the pics posted in the bracket the Laser IVs and Doernbecher IIIs jump of the page to me. they are the 2 out of 5 that I have in my collection in this bracket.
11s ARE GOING TO WIN because people are so unoriginal the 11s are super hyped and there are shoes here that are better than them.............it's really a shame
I'm surprised that the nugget 2s made it and not the mist blue 4s. Also nice to see the miros up there. There's some great competition.
How is the lightning 4 a 2 seed and the thunder an 8 seed? Thunder is worth like twice as much. Hate hate hate
if it's any consolation, i'm one of these "younger" sneaker heads and i'd take just about any 3, 6, and some 7's over any eleven. Not cool grey 3's, i don't care for those. I did get a pair of cool grey 11's and they were great quality i thought. But in this bracket, they wouldn't make it passed the miro's, olympic 6's, DB or Mocha 3's.
agree, i just posted them today lol. however, it was hard to "sleep on them" because they were so exclusive; only came out in barcelona and less than 1000 pairs were made.
The Melo 2 was one of the first limited Air Jordan releases and also one of the first 'PE'-type Air Jordan Retro. The Mist Blue IV was a re-done colorway on a model that featured about 10 better colorways than the Mist Blue. Easy exclusion.
Y'all idiots probly think the cool grey 3 is heat- do your homework fools. Look at these comments - lebron preheat are non og jordans - they shouldn't let the dumbass new hypebeasts who learned abt kicks thru 2k video games vote. Control this blastphemy. the motorsports are left off the beijings are on? All of these brackets have sucked donkey dick from the jump. Let mj make the bracket hisself
i understand what you're saying, but technically the 2 was a re-done cw on a already existing model as well. I prefer the 4s over the 2s, and they are one of the better non og cws imo. i respect yours as well.
