Renowned designer Tinker Hatfield made a surprise guest appearance at the Sole Collector x Jordan CMFT 11 release event in Santa Monica. Attendees engaged in an informative Q & A with Hatfield, as he answered questions regarding upcoming releases and past designs. One of Hatfield’s most interesting comments pertained to LeBron James’ entourage. Tinker stated that he used to work on the signature lines of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James; however, in regards to LeBron, he said, “I used to work on LeBron’s, until his entourage kind of pissed me off.” He later stated that LeBron was ‘cool’ but his entourage is obviously Hatfield’s problem.
The LeBron line has been nothing less than amazing, and Nike designer Jason Petrie has done an incredible job with James’ last two signature models to say the least. Yet, would you like to see another LeBron James signature model spearheaded by Tinker Hatfield?
