On the surface, Oregon Track & Field's latest pairs of exclusive Air Jordans appear to just be general releases with custom patches. However, these patches, designed by Oregon alum Tinker Hatfield, have a deeper meaning.

The special patch is featured on the tongues of the "Playoffs" Air Jordan 12 Retro Low and white-based Air Jordan 31 Low. Both pairs were made available to the public sans patch, but the special make-ups are limited to members, friends and family of the program.
