The Air Jordan 3 debuted thirty years ago and in commemoration of its 30th anniversary, its classic “Black Cement” and “White Cement” colorways made a comeback. Additionally, Jordan Brand also introduced the Air Jordan 3 “Tinker.” Within the sneakers community, it is common knowledge that the Air Jordan 3 was designed by Tinker Hatfield and this “Tinker” iteration was inspired by his original sketch of the sneaker model. The sketch actually made an appearance in the form of the graphic on the midsoles. Of course, Tinker Hatfield also designed the Air Jordan 6 and drew a sketch for the sneaker’s design, which is being transformed into an upcoming iteration.
It was back in 1991 when the Air Jordan 6 originally made its debut. As Michael Jordan started lacing up in the Air Jordan 6 on the court, he was on his way to winning the NBA championship for the very first time. It was also the time when Jordan Brand officially came to be and the “Nike Air” branding was replaced with the “Jumpman” logo. Until 2002, numerous colorways were dropped and then the Air Jordan 6 Low was introduced, along with the very first women’s iterations of the model. It was not until 2010 that the Air Jordan 6 ended up receiving the retro treatment.
The fact that there is an Air Jordan 6 “Tinker” in the works suggests that Jordan Brand might actually drop more Air Jordan Retro colorways inspired by Tinker Hatfield’s original sketches of the models. While there is no photo of the actual sneaker yet, the original sketch can be seen above. Judging from it, the sneaker will likely be dressed up in a combination of Black, Infrared and White. zsneakerheadz has even revealed that the Air Jordan 6 “Tinker” will end up retailing at a price of $190, but no release details or information has been officially announced yet, so keep checking back to SneakerExclusive.
