Jordan Brand pays homage to designer Tinker Hatfield with the Air Jordan 3 Tinker “Black Cement”, now available on market Ever since Tinker Hatfield stepped into Nike headquarters his impact has been felt across the world. This shoe is a celebration of not only the first Jordan model that Tinker designed, but also the first shoe he designed for Nike which is the Air Max 1.
This Jordan 3 is a spin off of the classic “Black Cement” that has been a street favorite since its release in 1988. A black suede upper with a familiar elephant print mudguard is featured, but instead of the elephant print sporting grey tones, it is black. A grey Swoosh overlays the upper, drawing inspiration from Tinkers first projects for Nike. A white midsole, grey outsole, and gold hardware completes the design. These sneakers released in July of 2019 and retailed for $200.
