Round 1 of the Sneaker News March Madness OG Air Jordan Tournament continues as we get a look at the next batch of eight teams in this massive 32-shoe fight to the finish. The Southwest bracket is truly unique as the Number 1 Overall seed is an Air Jordan colorway that Michael never wore in a game! The Air Jordan V Grape is without a doubt one of the greatest of all-time, but will it be enough to take down a surprisingly strong Number 8 seed in the Air Jordan XII ‘Playoff’? Remember, all you need to do is vote for your favorite Air Jordan colorway in each match-up, because the champion of the Sneaker News March Madness OG Air Jordan Tournament is determined by YOU. The polls for the Southwest Region are now open, so get your votes in and be sure to check out the West and East Region below if you haven’t already done so. Don’t forget to check back tomorrow night for the Southeast region voting, with all four Round 1 polls running all through the weekend.
