Jordan Brand has lauded the Oregon Ducks‘ track and field team with a new Air Jordan 1 Mid PE designed by Tinker Hatfield. Although Oregon’s football and basketball teams get a lion’s share of the PE sneakers manufactured by Nike, the Ducks’ track and field squad plays a very important role in the brand’s lineage: co-founder Phil Knight ran for other co-founder Bill Bowerman on the team, and Tinker Hatfield himself was once a UO pole vaulter.
It’s only right that the Ducks track and field team gets a moment in the PE spotlight with this mid-cut Air Jordan 1 with history and roots this rich and a sparkling new Nike-funded stadium. Hatfield’s design uses a combination of slate and smoke gray shades on its suede upper, then frames this murky middle with bright neon green on the outsole, collar and tongue. Of course, there’s plenty of bold branding to be had as well: the tongue’s Jumpman is enclosed by a familiar yellow Oregon O and a tri-color Oregon Track shield adorns the heel. Collar flaps add extra branded detailing with a familiar ball-and-wings logos on the lateral half and Hatfield’s signature debossed on the medial half. Gray Swooshes, laces and nylon tongues work with white midsoles complete the design.
Its not going to have a retail release as this is a player edition sneaker made for the Oregon track and field team.
