An all-encompassing celebration of pop culture, November's ComplexCon was highlighted by a series of discussions called Complex Conversations. For these panels, tastemakers were grouped up to discuss a variety of items, ranging from the future of education to earning a living through social media. As expected, the topic of sneakers was also covered, with an eclectic mix of personalities tapped to debate the year's best sneaker.

In this installment of Complex Conversations, Complex VP of Content Strategy and Sneaker Shopping host Joe La Puma moderates a discussion between rapper Wale, brand owner Jon Buscemi, reseller to the stars Benjamin Kickz and Quickstrike co-hosts DJ Clark Kent and Russ Bengtson. The panel narrows down a list of 2016's best releases and gives individual picks for Sneaker of the Year.
