The sneakers are inspired by one of Tinker Hatfield’s original sketches, which have now become a reality. The shoe replicates the drawing’s plan for a white upper complemented by concord blue trim overlays and black accents. The shoes also feature foam midsoles to help cushion hard landings as well as solid rubber outsoles to provide traction. The top of the shoes have white laces along with a black strip with the signature Jordan symbol across the footbed.
The sneakers were ahead of their time when they were released in 1995. The design’s use of patent leather was uncommon at the time and foreshadowed a future where the line between performance and style would be blurred.
