this is ridicoulus...levis should have won...and eminem 4s lost to dmp wtf...dmps go for like 320 at most eminem over 2000+....how many eminem are out there ....like 4 if even
THIS IS COMPLETE AND UTTER HORSESHIT PERPETRATED BY HYPEBEAST ASS FAGGOTS VOTING FOR SHOES THEY THINK WOULD MAKE THEIR BITCH ASS LOOK THE COOLEST WALKING AROUND THE MALL.
WTF happen to the Em IV's!? That was a givaway. Cool grey's and Laneys are just classics, cant see any other non-og winning imo
i'm mad the burgandy V's had to go up against the undefeated 4's...my 2 fave colorways and style of sneaker.....
alot of people are mad because they know certain sneakers resell for more than the winners in some catagories, now i dont know what to vote for , best looking sneaker or most significant ... i just go by what i like.....
10/16...I can understand that my tastes are different than the majority of the people but: 1) XII French Blue sucks if compared to V Green Bean 2) Would you kindly like to tell me what IV Oreo has so special? 3) Air Jordan IX always sucks, they are simply ugly! 4) IV Eminem defeated by VI Defining Moments is absurd... In Europe we have totally different meters of evaluation, that's for sure ;-) Please, don't take these words in a bad way. Respect!
Of course we're not going to agree with every sneaker that won. just like we're not pleased with some of the winners in the NCAA tournament BUT it's still enjoyable . No need to get all sensitive.
NONE OF YA'LL ARE EVEN SNEAKERHEADS!!! HATE MY COMMENT BUY Your "HEAT" IS WACKK!!! Thunder should've made it & so should the LEVIS!! Man you all disappointment me the Cool Grey 9s are ugly! They come out in November. The olympic 6s come out in July.. WHOEVER VOTED AGAINST THE THUNDER YOU DON't KNOW HEAT
WHAT THE F**K!! THE THUNDERS ARE OUT OF THIS!!!! THE OLYMPICS ARE ALREADY BEING RELEASED!!!!! AND THE POWDER 10s OUT TOO!!!!!! WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Major disappointments and its only round 1. I swear if those cool grey XIs win theres no point in having tournaments. People seem to be fooled and blinded by the mess that happens near every Christmas with the XIs. I love jordans and everybody has their personal favs but it seems lately like the XIs are holy and any criticism or unfavorable views towards them makes you a hater or having no knowledge of jordans or not a "true" sneakerhead......
what does the release date have to do with anything at all???? the altitudes already retroed the cool grey 11s already retroed the laneys are about to come out what does that have to do with the shoe being hot or not?
shame that regardless of whats heat in that bracket, they'll lose to cool grey 11's. i feel the same way about my beloved chrome 8's having no chance against the oly 6's
