The link between the University of Oregon and Jordan Brand can be traced to a single man: Tinker Hatfield, the Nike design legend who was a track and field star for the Oregon Ducks back in his college days. In 2011, Tinker came up with an idea to outfit Oregon athletes during travel days, something that would be more special than the run-of-the-mill sweatsuit in signature school colors. What he came up with is a line of player-exclusive Air Jordan styles, and as a new academic year begins, Tinker himself schools us on the University of Oregon x Air Jordan collection.
