Remember, voting for the Sweet 16 Round will close on Sunday, March 25th, at 11:59 PM EST.
SWEET 16 VOTING – SOUTHEAST REGION
 Air Jordan IV ‘UNDFTD’ vs.  Air Jordan IX ‘Cool Grey’
MATCHUP #1 - Notorious for its ‘Friends & Family’ rarity but praised for its breathtaking colorway, the Air Jordan IV ‘UNDFTD’ takes on the second ‘Cool Grey’ Air Jordan of all-time.
 Air Jordan VI ‘DMP’ vs.  Air Jordan III ‘Doernbecher’
MATCHUP #2 – The Air Jordan that paid homage to Michael’s first-ever NBA Championship goes against a formidable 3-seed designed by an 11-year-old boy.
I remember when the cool grey nines came out, them things sat on the shelves. Now all these resellers or should I say "hypebeast" gonna make them something.
can someone tell me how the hell the DMP6s got past the eminems?? COME ON I love the 6s but the eminems!
UNDFTD & Doernbecher but the 3s v the DMP 6 was very difficult...3s my fave Jordan 6s made me a sneakerhead though....cool grey 9s tight but they don't stand a chance vs the UNDFTD joints
undefeated all the way to the final, but with only 72 pairs, they almost dont even count as a retro to me.
I wish they would do a regular release on the undftd color way... So sick... Surprised the 5s in the similar color way didn't even show up in the bracket
I like the 9s. A favorite of mine since I had them... 4's are ok but I think plenty of people are gonna vote for them because of hype. I think the eminems look better. 3's better win though I think they are better than dmp 6's
Undefeated IV Doernbecher III (hardest choice yet) I love the DMP VI's, but the DB III's are just a personal favorite of mine.
dude these shoes are for straighht HYPEBEASTS , they should get GRIFFEY FURY or 2012 CHICAGO 10S in here ya know what i mean CUH?
i agree bout the DB's. very slept on shoe. if people actually got to hold a pair and put it on their feet i think the DB's would get way more respect. i didn't even know the DB's had 3M on them until i actually copped a pair. DMP 6's are dope as well but not as hot as DB's IMO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i-Q2OIWQbY
In all honesty i don't think the hypebeast knew that half of these colorways even existed let alone the ones that didn't make the cut i.e. citrus, pacific 7s or mist 4s so none of these shoes are hypebeast shoes at all
