Jordan Brand has come through with a bit of background info on the upcoming ‘Tinker Hatfield’ version of the Air Jordan 2012 Deluxe. The luxurious black and white colorway is apparently a nod to Hatfield’s original inspiration for the overall design of the sneaker-the Jazz era and accompanying zoot-suit garments. The dragon hit on the back is also clarified, as Tinker himself was born in the year of the dragon. Check out the official images and stick with Sneaker News for the Air Jordan 2012 Delux ‘Tinker Hatfield’ release next Wednesday, March 14th.

Air Jordan 2012 is superb! A very nice good looking shoes. The looks is unique & well crafted. JB didn't disappoint me this time. Always push into a different style & performance shoes each year. When i look back at all the signatures Air Jordans, from AJ1 to AJ2012, all of the shoes have their own unique looks & story behind it. I like it & appreciate it. Well done JB, keeps up the good works :)

Oh no he dit-int

Tinker did the sketch, then handed final design over to the BJ team, same for the 2011. That's why the sketch didn't look as good. GR's may get to outlets, but people who say these will sit on shelvesd are dead wrong. They were a very limited quickstrike and sold immediately. I have these, the YOTD and a "heritage" pair I made at all star weekend. Quality is amazing, design, yeah, is just so-so.

How can these be good? They aren't retro's. It is just hilarious to me that when all the "retro's" first came out everyone said the exact same thing as everyone says about any Air Jordan shoe that comes out now. I remember when I got the 11's when they first came out and everyone asked why i was wearing moon boots and said they were the ugliest thing they have ever seen.

These will be inspiring people from the shelves of the Nike outlet...not to cop. To walk away from Nike for good.

WTF AGAIN!!!.....This is Tinker Hatfield DESPERATION (not inspiration). He just blew this one. He should retire designing JBs after this.

Maybe you should replace Tinker in the Nike Design Kitchen and show the world what we've all been missing...

Nike and Air Jordan are two separate brands. the "Nike Design Kitchen" isn't used in the Jordan business. Don't think you're so cleaver now, huh?

I know its called the design kitchen, but cleaver is a pretty bad pun.
