Tinker Hatfield

Company: Nike

Significant shoes: Air Jordan III, IV, XI, Air Max 1, Huarache runner, Air Safari

When you talk about Nike classics, Tinker Hatfield is the first name that comes to mind. Without him we don't have many of Nike's greatest runners and basketball shoes as well as the Air Jordan III and beyond. It was Tinker's vision that helped build the brand to the status it has reached and mentoring the youth that will allow the company to be just as strong down the road—a true OG.
