The man more responsible for the success of the Air Jordan Legacy than any other outside of Michael himself, Tinker Hatfield has been playing a more public role of late as Nike’s VP of Special Projects. He’s been involved with everything from the Nike Mag release to the University of Oregon Ducks’ basketball court, and now a new Air Jordan 2012 bearing not only his handiwork, but also the ‘TH’ initials. You might have missed them, as the appearance within the medial ankles’ dragon embossing is somewhat similar to how a non-native speaker might see Chinese characters, but it’s the little details like these that’ve made Tinker’s designs among the foundational works in modern basketball sneakers. Click through for a better look at this ‘Tinker Hatfield’ Air Jordan 2012 Quickstrike and let us know if you plan to grab these next week at select retailers like CNCPTS.

i wish i kinda waited on these instead of pulling the trigger on the grey/volts, but o well. i will say this though, the 2012s are by far best balling shoes ive used for an indoor court. theyre extremely useful for players who can play more than one position on the court (i play both the 1 and 3). id be hesitant to play on asphalt with this shoes though. they dont look like they can take the constant beating on an asphalt floor. overall, jordan brand impressed me with the 2012s. the packaging was pretty kool too lol.
Oh f*ck!!!...Here we go again. GIVE IT UP TINKER!!!....GIVE IT UP!!! Your Js is an EPIC FAIL OF EPIC PROPORTIONS!!!! Nobody...as in nobody in a right state of mind would cop an F**N UGLY GOLF SHOES at 223 f*ckn' dollars!!!! Damn I need my gym steroids on these.
Im coppin, these are pretty dope. I'd rather cough up 223, get 2 boots, 3 soles, a sick box, and comfy ass shoe than spend 250 on some cheap material retro. Just my opinion but each to their own....
"Your Js is an epic fail of epic proportions" Guess you don't like any Air Jordan 3-15,20,23 huh? You're the only fail here, Tinker is a sneaker legend.
i m not crazy about the dragon imprint inside but LOVE THE SHOE! the design is great ! not insane about the Flywire, but what do you want, technologie.... they are great looking!
Eddie ur right. Your just not a idiot or brainwashed to like everything with a jumpman sign or a jordan name to it. These r gabage. I havent seen anyone with these on. I've seen them in person and almost made me throw up. The best thing bout JB is the retros. Tinker might be a legend but he f up here.
