The second leg of the Nike Kobe 11 “Muse” Pack continues with this sublime design by Tinker Hatfield, who clearly channels the spirit of Michael Jordan and the Air Jordan 3. Kobe Bryant calls the Air Jordan 3 his favorite Air Jordan shoe of all-time, so it’s a fitting application of AJ3 on the Kobe 11, which makes use of signature details like the grey leather tongue and the Nike logo on the heel. Kobe, who has been a fan of Air Jordans since childhood, notes Tinker’s simplicity and ability to listen to the athlete as the keys to his design achievements. Furthermore, Kobe compares himself to Michael Jordan in that their drives for success were different despite achieving the same outcomes.
The Nike Kobe 11 “Tinker Hatfield” releases next Thursday, May 5th, at select Nike Basketball retailers around the globe.
