|Joe La Puma of Complex Magazine recently interviewed Nike and Jordan’s “Don of design” Tinker Hatfield. A copy of this interview is available in the new issue of Complex Magazine which hit news stands today, 2/12, but not all of the interview was included in the magazine.
In a Complex.com web exclusive, “sneaker celeb” Tinker opens up to Joe about his “in” at Nike, who pushed him in his career, as well as what he thinks of companies that rip his designs. Also, Tinker drops some info about some Air Jordans that we have never heard before such as what the inspiration was behind the Air Jordan 11 and also about the time that Mike got mad at Tinker over a shoe.
There have been many interviews done with people in and around Jordan Brand, but none compare to this one. Check it out at Complex.com.
