The Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament started off with a bang this week, with thirty-two of the best Nike LeBrons in history beginning the battle towards singular supremacy. It has been a steady rise to the top for LeBron and his kicks, but that’s not saying that there weren’t any bumps in the road. With that said, LBJ is sitting uncontested at the top right now, and with his rise in success is the increasing popularity of his sneakers. But what’s the single best LeBron of all-time? That’s what we’re set out to establish in 2014, with you, our loyal reader, being the sole determinant of that lofty decision. The Round 1 polls of the LeBron Tournament will stay open until Sunday, March 23rd at 11:59 PM EST, so be sure to get your votes in and stay tuned for the full reveal of the Sweet 16 on Monday.

MATCHUP #3 – A sequel of sorts to South Beach is the “Miami Vice” Elite 9. It has a tough task of beating out the LeBron 2 that he wore during the 2005 All-Star game.

MATCHUP #2 – Don’t count out the lowtops: the #2 seed is the controversial Miami Nights/Flamingo, but it has a daunting task in defeating the MVP LeBron 6.

MATCHUP #3 – This 3 vs. 6 face-off is a coinflip for sure: while the LeBron 10 Elite “Championship” has a lot of momentum, the reflective hardwood detailing on these All-Star LeBron 7s might take away some votes.

MATCHUP #4 – This pivotal match-up pins two of the older, more respected LeBrons against each other. One is the wild NYC Remix, while the other is the famed “Wheat” that LeBron wore during the 2004 All-Star festivities.

MATCHUP #3 – The “Fruity Pebbles” was undoubtedly the first “hunted” shoe in this pool of 32 Nike LeBrons. It goes up against the unique spin on China called the “Blue Flame” LeBron 9.

Im not gonna lie, my favorite lebron sneaker is the Lebron crown jewel, but for importance of the sneaker world, the lebron x championship is equivalent to any jordan considering it was a limited release and it was what he wore in the best two games of his career(finals gm 6 and 7)

I would like to see the Championship 9s and the South Beach 8s in the championship, but those are also very biased picks...
