A Glimpse At Tinker Hatfield’s Jordan 9 Ideation Sketches

Space Jam continues to give and give. Aside from it being a huge part of the reason I started playing Basketball in the first place, which in turn got me interested in footwear, it’s anniversary (and upcoming sequel) is now allowing us to see some of the Air Jordan 9 design process.

Footwear design legend, Tinker Hatfield has shared some of his initial ideation sketches, as well as an in-depth break-down behind the meaning of the outsole (which you can see fully at SneakerFiles).

You can see some of Tinker’s initial sketches and renders, below.
