With the polls open for both coasts of the Sneaker News March Madness Non-OG Air Jordan Tournament, it’s time to focus in on the sixteen Air Jordans appointed to the middle-regions of the field. We’ll start with the Southwest Regional, led by the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ at the #1 seed and solidified by two popular ‘Cool Grey’ renditions, the rarest Air Jordan Premio, and a slew of other hitmakers. The polls for the Southwest are now officially open so make sure you place your vote, and if you haven’t voted in the East or West region yet, we’ve got the direct links for you just below. Remember, the polls will stay open until 11:59 PM EST this Sunday, March 18th.
MATCHUP #1 – Arguably one of most coveted Retro releases of all-time is pitted against the $500-packaged Air Jordan IV ‘Thunder’.
