Jordan XIII University of Oregon Track and Field F&F
How do you design a shoe for the flashiest athletes in college sports?
That question was the starting point for Dan Sunwoo and Tinker Hatfield’s latest University of Oregon F&F Jordan, created for the schools track & field program. Hatfield, a former track athlete himself, wanted to convey some of the inherent swagger track & field stars carry, so Sunwoo chose to allow the university’s famous yellow to pop strongly off the shoe’s primarily black upper.
An added quirk, made possible through the blocking of the Jordan XIII, is that the yellow pop also ends up looking like a duck foot when the shoes hit heel to heel. Bonus details include custom embroidery throughout and a replacement of the shoe’s traditional cat eye motif with the UofO logo.
The shoe is limited to members of the University of Oregon track & field program and friends & family of Jordan Brand.
