Quick question, take a look in your closet, do you own a pair of Air Jordan's, Air Max's, Cross Trainer's, or Hurache's? If you do or you've always yearned for a pair then credit that desire to one man, visionary footwear guru, Tinker Hatfield. 30 years later and still at the top of his game, Tinker has cemented himself as the most iconic athletic footwear designer ever. NIKE thought what better way to celebrate his 30th anniversary with them than to ambush him with a surprise roast at the Bossanova Ballroom. The incredible folks at NIKE setup the gala in a venue just on the outskirts of downtown Portland, and our team was fortunate enough to capture the evening of Tinker being barraged by close family, friends and colleagues. It was all comedy and all in good fun at the Big Top. From us at The HUE, we just want to give huge thanks and congratulations on 30 years of sneaker domination! We might just need to make one of those t-shirts that say, "Tinker Changed My Life!".
