You might be aware that Jordan Brand has an entire collection of University of Oregon Ducks x Air Jordan sneakers. Jordan Brand’s legendary designer once studied at the University of Oregon and played track and field for the Oregon Ducks under coach Bill Bowerman, who is the co-founder of Nike. Tinker Hatfield has designed some of the most iconic Air Jordan iterations for the collegiate athletes of his former team. Earlier this year, Tinker Hatfield’s original sketch of the Air Jordan 3 was brought to life and now the Oregon Ducks have received this special PE iteration. Of course, it will not be joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018.
Tinker Hatfield Has A Deep Connection With The Oregon Ducks
It was back in 2012 when Tinker Hatfield came up with the idea that the Oregon Ducks roster should have its own exclusive Air Jordan colorway and he personally chose the Air Jordan 11 for this. Jaison Williams, who played for the University of Oregon football team as a receiver between 2006 and 2008, helped Tinker Hatfield design the Air Jordan 11 “Oregon Ducks” PE. Over the years, plenty of other models from Jordan Brand’s signature line have been dressed up in the color scheme of the Oregon Ducks, some even twice. These include the Air Jordan 3, 4, 5, 14, 29, as well as the Jordan Melo M10.
The Air Jordan 3 Tinker Has Gotten An Oregon Ducks Makeover
Tinker Hatfield has already previously designed two different Air Jordan 3 “Oregon Ducks” PEs back in 2012. The photos accompanying this post were shared on the official Instagram profile of the Oregon Ducks (@goducks). The suede uppers of this Air Jordan 3 “Tinker Hatfield” PE are dressed up predominantly in Green and Yellow, while also sporting Black– and Grey-colored detailing, in addition to plain White midsoles. In case the Nike “Swoosh” logos on the sides look peculiar, it is because they are actually removable. The hangtag that will likely be attached to each pair seems to be featuring the “Jumpman” branding with “OREGON” on top.
