Cooper-Hewitt’s Object of the Day: Building a Shoe – Featuring Tinker Hatfield

Congrats to Tinker Hatfied for being featured by the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum for their ‘Building a Shoe’ ‘Object of the day’ series.

‘Inventor Tinker Hatfield is responsible for the original design concepts of Air Jordan sneakers, one of the most widely recognized and highly coveted products from the 1990s. The jagged line of color on the edge of the sole that became a trademark; the revolutionary “Air” bubble design, a small plastic window in the sole of the shoe which allowed you to see the cushioning system inside, are all ideas that came from one man who seems to know a little more about building than just shoe design.’ – Allison Grimes
