Tinker Hatfield Creates ‘Fab Five’ Air Jordan Vs

“If you were watching college basketball in the early ‘90s, the Fab Five stuck with you,” Tinker Hatfield says, via press release. “They brought a new style of play. They had swagger to their game that I hadn’t seen at the college level before. They became one of the most iconic teams in college sports. I wanted to create a special shoe that celebrated that team and marks the start of a new era for the teams at the Jordan Brand and the University of Michigan.”

Hatfield chose to go with the Air Jordan V to honor one of the illest squads we’ve ever seen.

Hatfield went heavy with the Michigan-related themes. He dressed the Vs in a maize colorway, that’s done up in suede. He also put a big “M” on the outside of each tongue and “Hail To” and “The Victors” on the inside of either tongues. The finishing touch is on the heel, where Hatfield included a new logo to signify the Fab Five.

Though these are already on Flight Club for $20K, Jordan Brand’s not releasing them. They’re only for friends and family of JB and the Wolverines.
