Thanks to all the votes submitted by Sneaker News readers, the field of 32 contestants has been narrowed down to the Sweet Sixteen, and already we’re seeing some upsets in the seedings. Let’s take a quick look at the matchups in the East region of the Sneaker News March Madness Non-OG Air Jordan Tournament; the #1 seen Air Jordan V ‘Laney’ will be placed against #5 seed Air Jordan IV ‘Oreo’, while the #3 seed Black Laser IV will try to slow down the momentum of the hot Air Jordan V Tokyo 23. The Sweet 16 Round of the Sneaker News March Madness Non-OG Air Jordan Tournament Voting begins now, so move on ahead below and get your picks in! Remember, voting for the Sweet 16 Round will close on Sunday, March 25th, at 11:59 PM EST.

SWEET 16 VOTING – EAST REGION

[1] – Air Jordan V ‘Laney’ vs. [5] Air Jordan IV ‘Oreo’

MATCH-UP #1 – The Air Jordan V ‘Laney’ was a Retro+ colorway inspired by Michael’s High School, and easily cruised to the Sweet 16 Round by handily defeating its eighth-seed opponent. It’ll go against the Air Jordan IV ‘Oreo’ in a contest that pits two of the more aged Air Jordans in the entire Tournament. Will we have an upset on our hands?


[3] – Air Jordan IV ‘Black Laser’ vs. [7] Air Jordan V ‘Tokyo23′

MATCH-UP #2 – The 7-seed Air Jordan V ‘Tokyo 23′ is riding an immense wave of momentum, as it cruised into the Tournament after the Play-In Round and surprisingly blew out the Eminem II in the First Round. Does the online-exclusive Air Jordan IV ‘Black Laser’ have enough power to halt the Air Jordan V ‘Tokyo 23′ to a complete stop?

The 4's overshadow the 5's both looks and quality wise. I HAD to go with both 4's.

LMAO have you ever held the Tokyo V's in person? I highly doubt it, otherwise you wouldn't be saying their quality isn't on point. I guess everyone on here likes to bash shit because it's too expensive for them. Pathetic

Oreos & Lasers. Tokyo's are ugly af to me. I dont like the all yellow. Laneys are gorgeous but Oreos are so underrated and forgotten. That leather is beautiful !

Tokyos are trash compared to heat like the Lasers 4's...when the Lasers dropped they were $175 retail back in the day...store managers were marking the price up to $250 in my area on release day.

LOL at Laney vs. Oreo. At the Footaction I worked at the oreo's were still on the clearance rack when the Laney's dropped and the Laneys sat so long I can remember the net yellowing. I kinda liked the Laney's back then, but never like any of the IV's without the netting.

This is really pretty funny and ridiculous when you step back and look at it. But props for the passion. Oreos and Tokyos for me.
