Nike Legend Tinker Hatfield Designs Jordan-Inspired Shoes for Kobe

From the "Muse Pack."

By

Nike's "Muse Pack" of Kobe Bryant sneakers continues with an entry from Tinker Hatfield, the most venerated designer in the brand's rich history.

His entry is inspired by the Air Jordan 3, a favorite of Bryant's. The sneaker's black/red colorway is transferred to this performance basketball silhouette, complete with Nike embroidery on the back as a nod to the original Jordan 3.

In a video introducing the shoes, Bryant recalls seeking out Hatfield's creations as a kid.

“Tinker has caused my parents a lot of headaches over the years,” he says, “from being a kid and having to go find a bunch of Air Jordans.”

The Kobe 11 "Tinker Muse" releases on May 5.
