The two designers detail the Air Jordan 2010.
words_Nick DePaula Just as they have since the Air Jordan IX, Tinker Hatfield and Mark Smith once again teamed up to design and create the latest Air Jordan signature sneaker, a process that began just as the team was celebrating their success with the Air Jordan XX3. In this detailed video, both Tinker and Mark reveal the many inspirations that helped shape the shoe, including the reasoning for the upper's transparent TPU window, as well as the tooling's new bottom-loaded Zoom Air bag. As the brand celebrates its 25th Anniversary with the introduction of the Air Jordan 2010, both designers share just how the shoe, according to Tinker, "looks like part of the legacy of Jordan, and part of the future of Jordan."
