Last night, we opened up the polls for the Sneaker News March Madness OG Air Jordan Tournament, focusing on seeds 1 through 8 of the West bracket. Tonight, the tournament continues forward, as we move across the coast to the East region, highlighted by the Air Jordan XI ‘Concord’ as the Number 1 overall seed. This year’s tournament not only focuses on the importance of the Air Jordan model, but the significance of each original colorway within the Air Jordan Legacy. Some of MJ’s greatest moments have come in these shoes, and some were never even worn by Michael in a game, but each and every selection in the tournament is a certified classic, worthy of its spot in the field and capable of making a run in our March Madness royal rumble. The polls are now open for the East region, so be sure to vote for your favorite kicks, and check back on the West region if you haven’t voted already, because all polls in Round 1 will remain open until midnight this Sunday.

Last year, our March Madness Sneaker Tournament was a huge hit with readers, so you know we had to bring it back again for this year’s Big Dance festivities. During our previous sneaker tourney, it seemed that a lot of people were voting for a specific colorway rather than the overall shoe as intended, so for the 2011 edition, we figured – let’s take all possible confusion out and just make it a battle royale between the 32 greatest OG Air Jordan colorways of all time. The concept here is the best original Bulls-era Air Jordan colorways going toe to toe to see which shoe stands above them all. You may not agree with all the selections or seedings, but we can pretty much guarantee that this is going to be a lot of fun for everybody once the madness begins. Almost every shoe featured here is a juggernaut in its own right, so it should be pretty interesting to see how this one plays out. Just like last year, it will be the readers who decide the outcomes, so head over to Sneaker News HD to examine the brackets and check back tomorrow night for the start of the Round 1 voting.
