A Look at the Original Nike Mag Sketches by Tinker Hatfield

Footwear designers, and designers in general, don’t get much more legendary than Tinker Hatfield. And as far as legendary sneakers go, it goes without saying that the Nike Mag’s are right up there with the best of them.
With Nike just announcing that they’ll be releasing just 89 pairs of the now functioning, auto-lacing Mag’s, it seems like an appropriate time to have a look back and pay homage to how the now infamous shoes first started out on paper.

Check out some of Tinker’s initial sketches, below.
