A little bit later today, Sneaker News will take you inside a special engagement in Portland that celebrated Tinker Hatfield’s 30 years of brilliance at Nike, but right now, let’s have a closer look at a model that stands out beyond all his other work as perhaps the single most significant sneaker of the year. It’s pretty amazing that Tinker designed 2011’s top shoe for release in 1995, but after the Breds (in CDP form), Space Jams and Cool Greys dominated each of the last three holiday shopping seasons, the ‘Concord’ Air Jordan XI Retro is set to do the same this year. It’s a clear testament to the timeless quality of Hatfield’s design and his timing was impeccable as usual with this shoe coming to represent one of the finest seasons a sports team has ever assembled.
