What are the best sneakers of 2009? To answer this question, we assembled a panel of sneaker experts, including Matt Halfhill (founder of NiceKicks.com), DJ Clark Kent (God's favorite DJ), Mayor (AF1 King), Chris Vidal (ALIFE Manager), and Wil Whitney (head coach of 21 Mercer and founder of Nom de Guerre). Last week, each expert shared their personal Top 10, and now everyone is coming together to determine the official Top 10 Sneakers of 2009. We even caught the whole debate on video.
Jordan went back to back in the top five (the True Blues were #4), and for good reason. Space Jams were a maddening Christmas release with people actually lining up in the streets again. Lining up! Like it's 2007 or something! There's really not much to say about these puppies other than, "Space Jams". Space Jams is Space Jams, and the sneakers are a must for any true collector. Sick. Check the video below of the very one-sided #3 discussion, and stay tuned for the #2 video that drops tomorrow.
