Sneaker Showdown: Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low

The Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low has sneakerheads pumped. After a tease in the form of a limited HTM drop, many thought Flyknit would never be featured on an accessible low-top Kobe 9 release. Recent unveilings of both the "Hyper Grape" and "Beethoven" blends provide new hope for new pickups, offering the total package of technology on two off-court friendly drops. So, we ask you today: which colorway do you prefer? Check out the photos below and cast your vote for your personal favorite in today's Sneaker Showdown.

Sneaker Showdown: Air Jordan 3 “5Lab3″

When first launched in silver, the Air Jordan 3 "5Lab3" set the sneaker world on fire. An all-reflective Air Jordan 3? It seemed too good to be true and too hard to get. As that release passed, many wondered and debated whether or not the best JB release of the year had already hit us in the month of March. The conversation shifted last week when we saw our first look at the black-based take on the 5Lab3 concept. Now that we've seen official images of the latter, we ask you, our readers: which 5Lab3 colorway is the best? Speak your mind in the voting poll and comment section in today's Sneaker Showdown.
