We’re proud to announce that the Air Jordan XI is the winner of the inaugural Sneaker News March Madness Sneaker Tournament. The field of competitors was fierce from one through eight in each bracket, as we narrowed down thirty-two of the all-time greatest Air Jordan and Nike models, as well as specific colorways of classic Dunk SB and AF1 models. On its route to championship glory, the Air Jordan XI defeated three classic Air Jordan models, the mighty Air Foamposite One and perhaps the most iconic and game-changing Nike SB Dunk of our time.

Those who praised the Air Jordan XI and deemed it the favorite to win from the get-go had their predictions realized, as the AJXI won in dominating fashion. It might not be your personal favorite, but the readers have spoken and the Air Jordan XI has been officially crowned as our winner. Keep reading for a look at the final results and check back later today for an in-depth tribute to the Air Jordan XI, your 2010 SN March Madness Sneaker Tournament champion.
