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.

The Foams may be the most technically advanced kicks on the list for 2011. A lot of people wear them off the court, but on the court they remain a cut above the rest with the unique mold to your foot once you begin to play and generate heat around your foot — by far one of the coolest pieces of technology that we've seen from Nike over the years. And the OG Royal Foamposite Ones remain the ultimate Foam, 14 years after their debut.
