Last month we introduced you to The Next Sneaker Design Star contest, which will place a talented young designer in a multi-day apprenticeship at an American sneaker company. Today, in addition to announcing that Reebok Classic will be that brand, we’re giving you the chance to meet the three finalists and check out their work.

Complex’s own Russ Bengtson has selected this triumvirate, whose standout sketches now appear over the next three slides in a toe-to-toe-to-toe battle. But at the end of the day, it’s up to you to pick the winner by voting for your favorite original sneaker design. Here we go.
