Jordan Brand tends to show love to the several colleges that it sponsors, but one can argue that in terms of volume of exclusive colorways, its hometown University of Oregon gets geared up the most. The home of the Ducks has been treated with several player exclusives that include models such as the Air Jordan 3, Air Jordan 4, Air Jordan 7 and more, and this season, Tinker Hatfield has worked with the Eugene-based institution to bring to life a duo of Air Jordan 8 “Oregon” iterations.
The legendary designer has fashioned “Gorge Green” and “Pure Platinum” installments, and in rare fashion, both will be auctioned off to the public via GOAT and Division Street to benefit the school’s hard-working student-athletes. School pride is shown off through the Oregon-inspired accents that appear on each pair, as well as the Ducks logo now appears on the chenille-infused tongues and the repetitive “Oregon Ducks” text that shows face on the medial side’s overlays.
400 pairs of the Tinker-designed makeups will be available for bidding via GOAT starting on August 24 at 10am PDT, and the raffle is set to close on August 26 at 11:59pm PDT.
In case you missed it, the Air Jordan 1 Elevate High “Varsity Red” has been revealed.
