[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?
