Oregon Ducks x Nike x Tinker Hatfield

Oregon once against cashed in on their strong Nike ties (shout out tofounder Phil Knight, as well as world reknowned designer of the Air Max 1 and the most famous Air Jordan's and current VP of Design and Special Projects, Tinker Hatfield).

The darker brown framing center-court is comprised of a tree design, honoring both the Pacific Northwest’s green image as well as the 1939 Oregon national championship team known as the Tall Firs, while three graphics along the court pay tribute to the three phases of the life (so far) of Pat Kilkenny. Kilkenny is an Oregon donor and former athletic director who is the namesake of the new floor as well as being among the people most responsible for Oregon’s new basketball stadium, Matt Arena, named in honor of Phil Knight’s late son.
