Black shoes with clear plastic mesh on the sides, a reflective tongue and a transparent outsole with a red Jumpman underneath? Tinker Hatfield wasn't going for subtle. He took inspiration from the P-51 Mustang fighter plane for the design, then added pure performance innovation including that sticky outsole, ventilation in the side panels, and assymetrical ankle collars. The tongue? That was all for the flashes. Smile.
