Be sure to vote so that your personal faves get a chance to move on, and check out the full bracket here.
ALL SWEET 16 POLLS STAY OPEN UNTIL SUNDAY, MARCH 31st, AT 11:59 PM EST.
SWEET 16 RESULTS WILL BE REVEALED ON MONDAY, APRIL 1st
ELITE 8 VOTING BEGINS TUESDAY, APRIL 2nd
SWEET 16 – EAST VOTING
MATCHUP #1 – The ultimate “Penny” colorway of the Foamposite One broke new ground with the shoe when it released in 2010. Does the “Neo Lime” House of Hoops exclusive have the chops to dethrone it?
MATCHUP #2 – It’s a battle of the Pro as the original Pearl colorway takes on the 2012 Bright Crimson – a shoe that advanced via a huge upset.
SWEET 16 – WEST VOTING
MATCHUP #1 – The original Air Foamposite shoe that started this Tournament is matched up with #4 seed Metallic Pewter. Which tonal colorway will reign supreme?
MATCHUP #2 – The first Air Foamposite shoe to be included in a “Pack” takes on the solid-black Foamposite. Not much separate the two – which will come out on top?
SWEET 16 – SOUTHEAST VOTING
MATCHUP #1 – The Galaxy might be the most solid #1 seed in the Tournament. Can the “Stealth” slow down its momentum?
MATCHUP #2 – Two huge upsets in the Tournament square off as the Metallic Red tests its skill against the Polarized Pink.
SWEET 16 – SOUTHWEST VOTING
MATCHUP #1 – Two of the quirkiest Foamposite releases clash in this match-up. The eBay/Twitter exclusive goes against the most re-stocked Foamposite of all-time.
MATCHUP #2 – What seems like a typical battle between #2 and #3 seeds could go down to the wire. Will Eggplant prevail, or will the Retro Blue stand firm?

Reds, royals, retro blues, paranorms, stealth, blackouts
My ideal finale would be red vs royal in the ultimate red v blue showdown
@Silk777 if i like the shoe regardless of how limited the release is, am i still a hypebeasts?
@Sneeky only difference for me are the Pink's I'm rolling with the Red's even though neither should have made it to this round in the first place
