Few people have single-handedly had the impact on sneaker culture as legendary sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield. The man who designed many of the most iconic Jordans and Air Maxes of all time is largely responsible for the proliferation of sneaker culture throughout the latter half of the 20th century. GOAT and Division Street are partnering to auction of 400 pairs of the Air Jordan VII University of Oregon Player-Exclusives, which will only be available through the GOAT platform. Proceeds will go towards University of Oregon athletes.

The auction, hosted on GOAT.com and in the GOAT app, kicks off tomorrow, Wednesday, August 24 at 10 AM PT through Friday, August 26 at 11:59 PM PT.

These exclusive sneaks designed by Hatfield himself feature a Ducks-branded chenille patch coupled with suede accents and chromed metallic hardware. These a great rendition of a slept on model of Jordan, coming in two color-ways—Gorge Green and Pure Platinum.

The Auction

GOAT, which needs no introduction, is partnering with Division Street, a sport venture company that develops creative and effective marketing programs to maximize revenue opportunities for University of Oregon student-athletes for this auction. The duo will auction off 200 pairs of coveted Air Jordan VIII University of Oregon PEs designed and developed for the men’s basketball program, and 200 pairs designed and developed for the women’s basketball team.

“We’re thrilled to partner with GOAT to unlock another innovative way to benefit participating University of Oregon student-athletes,” said Division Street CEO Rosemary St. Clair. “Tinker Hatfield-designed Jordan player exclusives are typically some of the most coveted sneakers in the community, and we look forward to working with GOAT to inspire the next generation while making a positive impact for U of O student-athletes.”

"We’re proud to support student-athletes and play a part in their athletic journey,” said Eddy Lu, Co-Founder and CEO of GOAT Group. “Division Street is not only creating opportunities for student-athletes, but shedding light on the importance of these programs.”

The proceeds from the auction will go directly to the Division Street Fund, which supports student-athletes at the University of Oregon across sports.
