It's that time of year again where we get the biggest sneaker heavyweights around one table to discuss the best sneakers of 2011. The roundtable is assembled of ATF front man DJ Clark Kent, Nice Kicks' founder Matt Halfhill, Complex sneaker editor Russ Bengtson and Complex strategist and editor Joe La Puma, and Kith's very own Ronnie Fieg. As mentioned previously, we'll be dropping two videos daily this week, all leading up to the #1 Sneaker of 2011. And speaking of which...

We've finally come to the number 1 spot on our list of the the best sneakers of 2011. The long-awaited black/cement Air Jordan 3s are both iconic and stylish, can be worn both on and off the court, and completely changed the game when they were first introduced in 1988. Thanks to Tinker Hatfield for his first of many great Jordan designs, and of course the man himself.
