Appropriate that he designed most of the early Air Jordans including all of MJ’s championship-winning kicks, cos Tinker Hatfield is the Michael Jordan of sneaker designers. The combination of inimitable timing and unprecedented excellence means there will simply never be another Tinker, and this past weekend a select few lucky invitees got a chance to sit down with Nike’s legendary designer at a private event at SoleFly in Miami. Inside the Sneaker Box created a special ‘Innovation Kitchen’ tee to present to its head chef, a look that echoes the recent Jordan BCT promo materials as a thank you for two hours of priceless facetime with one of the true geniuses of the footwear world. Big thanks to ITSB’s Clyde for hooking us up with photos of the event, a series of images you can see when you click on the jump below.
