SWEET 16 VOTING – EAST REGION
 – Air Jordan V ‘Laney’ vs.  Air Jordan IV ‘Oreo’
MATCH-UP #1 – The Air Jordan V ‘Laney’ was a Retro+ colorway inspired by Michael’s High School, and easily cruised to the Sweet 16 Round by handily defeating its eighth-seed opponent. It’ll go against the Air Jordan IV ‘Oreo’ in a contest that pits two of the more aged Air Jordans in the entire Tournament. Will we have an upset on our hands?
 – Air Jordan IV ‘Black Laser’ vs.  Air Jordan V ‘Tokyo23’
MATCH-UP #2 – The 7-seed Air Jordan V ‘Tokyo 23’ is riding an immense wave of momentum, as it cruised into the Tournament after the Play-In Round and surprisingly blew out the Eminem II in the First Round. Does the online-exclusive Air Jordan IV ‘Black Laser’ have enough power to halt the Air Jordan V ‘Tokyo 23’ to a complete stop?
