One of the most talked-about moments at the inaugural ComplexCon was the Sneaker of the Year panel, which featured a roundtable of experts arguing over the best sneaker releases of 2016. This year's edition upped the ante in every way possible as it became another can't-miss event at ComplexCon 2017.
Those who weren't able to attend the ComplexCon(versations) panel now have full access to the debate.
Complex's own Joe La Puma (and host of Sneaker Shopping) once again handled hosting duties this year, and returning panelists DJ Clark Kent, Wale, and Russ Bengtson brought their expertise to a heated debate that also featured Lonzo Ball, Victor Cruz, Aleali May, and J Balvin.
Along with breaking down the top 10 sneakers of the year, Wale and Clark Kent took some time to critique Lonzo Ball and his ZO2 shoe, but also rounded it out with some praise for the Lakers star and the Ball family.
Check out the full panel debate above to find out which sneaker took the No. 1 slot, and keep it locked to Complex in 2018 as we'll be rolling out over a dozen ComplexCon(versations) episodes including My Beautiful Dark Twisted Panel with Rick Ross and Mike Dean, The Disruptors with LaVar Ball and Complex Networks CEO Rich Antoniello, and The Rap Generation Gap Debate featuring Cam'ron, Kyle, ASAP Ferg, and more.
