Third times the charm. Tinker Hatfield is the sneaker architect that designed the Air Jordan Retro 3 back in 1987. During this time (and currently today), brand recognition is important to establish in the retail industry for market share and cultural impact. Nike swoosh and Air Jordan wings were logos previously featured on Michael Jordan kicks. Instead, Hatfield decided to not add the swoosh and rely on his genius design to sell the shoe. Sure enough, the Air Jordan Retro 3 is one of the most precious gems in MJ’s treasure chest of sneakers.

Somewhere in an ancient sketchbook, Tinker Hatfield had the original design that had the Nike swoosh on the Retro 3’s. Addition to the check logo is a mixture of cement hues that are colored black with graphite highlights. From Tinker’s artistic signature to Nike etched to enhance the shoe appearance, this special pair of Air Jordan Retro 3’s is a must-have in your collection.

The Air Jordan Retro 3 Tinker will be out 04/30/2018 on and at select DTLR locations. Be sure to cop your pair while they are still available.
