It’s only right that the greatest player in the history of basketball would also have the G.O.A.T. sneaker designer in his camp. So has been the history for Jordan Brand under the tutelage of Tinker Hatfield who designed some of the most iconic Air Jordan signature models. Tinker holds two things near and dear to his heart – Jordan Brand and the University of Oregon. Today Jordan Brand and Tinker look back at the Air Jordan Oregon PE history and talk about some of the most outstanding colorways and the process of combining UO and JB. It all started back in 2011 when Tinker was helping the Ducks think up new ways to outfit their athletes when traveling to their games. What resulted was some of the most sought after exclusive Jordans ever.
“I felt like there was something missing,” Tinker explained about the track suits and travel gear for Oregon athletes. “It wasn’t really that exciting and no one was talking about it. And I felt like there could be this excitement driven by leveraging the history of the Jordan Brand, even though we aren’t talking about a Jordan school, but just the history of the brand and Michael Jordan himself.”
