The Air Jordan 3 “Doernbecher”
The Air Jordan 3 “Doernbecher” is a part of a series of sneakers that are designed by a kid from the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. The Air Jordan 3 was designed by an 11 year old, by the name of Cole Johanson. Since 2007, Nike has collaborated with the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital to release special, limited edition kicks designed by one talented kid.
The Air Jordan 3 “Doernbecher” is the third Retro to appear in the Doernbecher Freestyle Collection.
The “Doernbecher” 3 dawns a very peculiar colorway, that is easy to spot anywhere. The upper is varsity red characterized by a diamond shape grid pattern that subtly contains the letters of Cole’s name. It’s a pretty dope touch to the shoe, actually. This mid-sole hosts a metallic silver and black sitting above the visible Air. The outsole of the AJ “Doernbecher” 3 is head-turning icy translucent.
A few details that make the “Doernbecher” 3 very unique are the graphics place above the back heel tab of each shoe. The left shoe as a little graphic of a chocolate bar; while the right shoe has spaghetti in the same spot. While Cole highly personalized the “Doernbecher” 3, he also added a graphic that characterizes all of the children of Doernbecher Children’s Hospital on the insoles. Each insole contains the words: Courage and Strength.
The Air Jordan 3 “Doernbecher” is nothing less than a stunning sneaker. Not only is the aesthetic superb, but the reason why it was designed also. The “Doernbecher” 3 is yet another coveted one of the Doernbecher Freestyle Series that gives a child the exclusive opportunity to express on a legendary canvas.
