On Saturday, March 24th, Jordan Brand will officially release the Air Jordan 3 “Tinker Hatfield”. If you’re not familiar with the sneakers story, the Air Jordan 3 “Tinker Hatfield” is the realization of Tinker Hatfield’s original sketch concept for the Air Jordan 3. The “Tinker” most notably features a Nike Swoosh which was not included in the Air Jordan 3’s final design. For those not familiar with Tinker Hatfield, he is the mind behind the design of the Air Jordan models 3 – 15. In other words, he’s a legend.
The sneakers will release on the 24th on the Nike SNKRS app and “tier 0” Jordan retail partners. Tier 0 refers to major boutiques and retailers. I would recommend calling your local sneaker shop to see if they’ll have the sneakers on the 24th. If not, the sneaker will also release on April 30th at all “tier 1” locations, so there is still hope that you’ll have access to a pair.
What’re your thoughts on the Tinker 3? Do you like the story behind it? Or does it hurt the famous Jordan 3 line?
