You think you’re a sneakerhead? Do love Jordans? AF1s? Is Tinker Hatfield your hero?
If you answered yes to the first three questions and found yourself scratching your head at the fourth, you may not be be as big of a sneakerhead as you think. Some of the dopest shoes in the game, including the Air Jordan 3 through Air Jordan 30, are the designs of the mad genius that is Tinker Hatfield.
