It doesn’t matter what form of fashion you are discussing, few items are as iconic and international as a fresh pair of Jordans. You can't step outside without seeing at least one pair with that Jumpman logo on the tongue. Since 1985, the Air Jordan has been constantly evolving, both in style and in technology, even with MJ wasn't on the court. Today, there are 28 different models. So how do you continue, year after year, to keep things new and innovative? Well, it starts with a brilliant mind like Nike designer Tinker Hatfield's and it pushes forward with the open thought process to include anything and everything as inspiration.

He's even taken from some of this country's highest technological achievements: military aircraft.
