SWEET 16 VOTING – SOUTHWEST REGION
 Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ vs.  Air Jordan VIII ‘Black/Chrome’
MATCHUP #1 – Considered to be one of the favorites of the entire tournament, the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’, which will return later this year, has a tough test in this contest against the Air Jordan VIII ‘Black/Chrome’.
 Air Jordan V ‘Raging Bull’ vs.  Air Jordan III ‘Cool Grey’
MATCHUP #2 – As one half of the Toro Bravo Pack, the Air Jordan V ‘Raging Bull’ squares off against an Air Jordan III in the dominant ‘Cool Grey’ edition.
SWEET 16 VOTING – SOUTHEAST REGION
 Air Jordan IV ‘UNDFTD’ vs.  Air Jordan IX ‘Cool Grey’
MATCHUP #1 – Notorious for its ‘Friends & Family’ rarity but praised for its breathtaking colorway, the Air Jordan IV ‘UNDFTD’ takes on the second ‘Cool Grey’ Air Jordan of all-time.
 Air Jordan VI ‘DMP’ vs.  Air Jordan III ‘Doernbecher’
MATCHUP #2 – The Air Jordan that paid homage to Michael’s first-ever NBA Championship goes against a formidable 3-seed designed by an 11-year-old boy.
SWEET 16 VOTING – WEST REGION
 Air Jordan XI ‘Cool Grey’ vs.  Air Jordan XII ‘French Blue’
MATCHUP #1 – Perhaps the overall top seed of the entire Tournament faces off against the ‘French Blue’ XII – a sneaker that has gained a formidable cult following since its debut in 2004.
 Air Jordan IV ‘Lightning’ vs.  Air Jordan XIII ‘Altitude’
MATCHUP #2 – No Air Jordan is as electrifying as the Air Jordan IV ‘Lightning’, but does it reach the height of popularity of the Altitude XIII?
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?
