Sneaker Spotlight: Air Jordan and Doernbecher Freestyle Collection

Air Jordan and Doernbecher Freestyle Collection

Since 2003 Nike and the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital have teamed up to create special footwear designed by who have battled serious illness to create shoes that reflect their unique personalities and experiences. Commemorating 10 years for the Freestyle Collection, the first sneaker that will be released in 2013 will be a brand new Air Jordan 5 inspired by a brave, young man who passed. In the beginning of the collection the sneakers chosen were only part of the Nike catalog, but the past 7 years have seen a numbered Air Jordon as part of the project. We look back at the previous 6 special edition J’s which consisted of the Air Jordan 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 9. With the AJ5 releasing we can only guess that the AJ7 will be chosen next year. Which Air Jordan “Doernbecher” is your favorite?
