Our last match-up was the closest yet. In an upset, the classic Air Jordan XIII Altitude lost to the new-school Air Jordan Evolution 85. XIII received 70 votes while Evolution 85 gets 86 votes to move-on to the next round.
Now on to match-up 8, which features two of Rajon Rondo's kicks. One of them caused alot of controversy amongst C's fans and sneakerheads:
#9 Rajon Rondo Kobe VI Rice
When Rondo was 1st seen wearing Kobe's signature shoe, alot of C's fans/sneakerheads were not happy. How could a Celtic wear a Laker's kicks? This would not be the last time Rajon donned Kobes either..
#24 Rajon Rondo Hyperfuse high black/green
The Hyperfuse is a sleek, yet simple design that many NBA players have come to love. This black & green version was a player edition only and did not release in retail locations. Rajon had these on for his famous "up high, down hard!" dunk in Miami.
