Tinker Hatfield, with a net worth of $25 Million, has become incredibly well known for being arguably the most innovative athletic shoe designer. Working exclusively for Nike, he has designed such shoes as the Air Jordan and the Nike Air Trainer. Originally from Linn County, Oregon he eventually attended University of Oregon with Bill Bowerman, the co-founder of NIke. He then joined Nike in 1981 and soon after designed what many explain as the first running shoe, the Nike Air Max. This creation concreted his stance in the company and he has consistently made a very large annual salary. But, most of his net worth comes from the stock options he gets annually as being one of the lead designers. Being a smart investor, he has held on to enough stock to make a very comfortable profit and retire with a very comfortable nest egg.
Tinker Haven Hatfield is the renowned designer of many of Nike's most popular and innovative athletic shoe designs, including the Air Jordan III through Air Jordan XV, the twentieth anniversary Air Jordan XX, the final numbered Air Jordan, the XXIII, the 2010 (XXV) and other athletic sneakers including the world's first "cross training" shoes, the Nike Air Trainer. Hatfield oversees Nike's "Innovation Kitchen".
Hatfield grew up in Halsey in Linn County, Oregon, and loved basketball Central Linn High School. In high school he was an all-state selection as basketball player, football player, and an All-American in track and field, leading to him being named as the athlete of the year in 1970 for high school athletes in Oregon. He then attended the University of Oregon where he ran track for coach and Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman, and at one time had the pole vault record at the school. Academically, he studied architecture and graduated from the University of Oregon School of Architecture.
Hatfield joined Nike in 1981 and in 1985 started working on shoe design. He realized that his architectural skills also could be applied to athletic shoes.[citation needed] Hatfield was also published for the architectural design of his Portland, Oregon home.[citation needed] He claims to have designed the cross-trainer as a "multi-sport" shoe when he realized people at his Oregon gym brought various sneakers with them for diverse activities such as basketball, aerobics, weightlifting and jogging.[citation needed] In 1987, Tinker Hatfield designed the Air Max 1 Running Shoe after visiting the Centre Georges Pompidou . The visible airbag and lightweight engineering ensured status as the icon of the original running Shoe. Also Tinker created the famous Infrared Air Max 90 shoe, which has retroed many times since its initial 1990 release.
Sportstyle Magazine listed Hatfield as one the most influential people on the business side of sports in both 1993 and 1996, while Fortune
