Names like Lil Yachty, Jim Jones, Kristen Noel Crawley, and DJ Clark Kent will vote to decide which sneaker gets the honor. Meanwhile, hosting duties belong to Joe La Puma of Complex Sports as the Sneaker Of the Year Panel decides the winner of the award.

Despite some all-time designs coming out of the brand, this colorway in collaboration with Travis Scott might be one of their greatest creations yet. Will the quartet of the who’s who in entertainment bestow it with the honor?
