Video: Video: Complex Staffers pick Sneaker of the Year: Don't Believe the Hype

Complex's weekly series Don't Believe the Hype takes a look at what's hot and what's just hot air. Sneakers, clothes, tech, food—nothing is safe. With the end of the year approaching, we had to settle the annual debate among hypebeasts that happens this time of year: What was the sneaker of the year?! So many were released, so many were copped, so many to wait in line for, which one was worth it the most? Speedy asks Complex staffers which sneaker from ComplexCon's Sneaker Panel top 3 list really earned the title in 2018. Is it the Cactus Jack Jordan 4, Nike Element React 87, or the Nike Sean Wotherspoon Air Max 1/97?
