The Jordan Standard ─ Jordan Brand’s Latest Lifestyle Shoe Designed By Tinker Hatfield

As of one of Nike’s most prominent footwear designers, Tinker Hatfield has a reputation for being quite the unparalleled mastermind and legend. He also designed two of Jordan Brand’s most iconic signature sneaker models, the Air Jordan 1 and the Air Jordan 3, which continue to remain at the height of popularity. Featured here is a brand new lifestyle shoe that Tinker Hatfield has designed for Jordan Brand, which has been named the Jordan Standard, and it has already joined the latest Jordan releases 2018.

Air Jordan Standard-2Do you feel that the silhouette of the Jordan Standard looks familiar? That makes sense because Tinker Hatfield drew inspiration from a classic Nike model, the Sock Dart. It was Tinker’s brother Tobie Hatfield who designed the Nike Sock Dart, which made its retail debut back in 2004. Thus, the Jordan Standards somewhat revamps the original design of the Sock Dart, adding a modern touch to it.

Apparently, Tinker Hatfield designed the Jordan Standard so that it would be easy to wear. While it certainly looks sleek, it can also be put on and removed quite easily. The uppers of this shoe consist of three different materials with varying textures. Namely, the collars are made up of spacer mesh, each forefoot is made up of feathered leather, and the midfoot straps are made up of a stretch material featuring the elephant print.

Air Jordan Standard-3So far, it seems that the Jordan Standard will make its retail debut in two tonal colorway, which may appear to be merely dressed up entirely in solid Black and White, respectively. However, that is not the case because Tinker Hatfield emphasized on contrast. The uppers of both iterations end up sporting three different shades due to the textures of the different materials they are made up of.

In particular, the feathered leather is an addition that is not typically seen on sneakers that Jordan Brand has dropped in recent times. The Jordan Standard has already made its retail debut on April 30th, 2018 and it is currently available on Nike.com.
