In late October, Nike unveiled The new Air Jordan 3 ‘Doernbecher,’ a heartwarming collaboration featuring a unique shoe design by a young patient at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Now, we have some exciting news about the release dates for this highly-anticipated charitable sneaker collection.
New Air Jordan 3 ‘Doernbecher’
One of the standout designs comes from Hugo “Juice” Covarrubias Molina, who crafted an Air Jordan 3 inspired by the Seattle Seahawks’ Legion Of Boom colors – a striking blend of navy blue and vibrant green. This unique touch extends down the ankle, paying homage to Hugo’s nickname. To add a touch of luxury, the hang tag on this special pair is actually plated with 24-carat gold, reflecting Juice’s passion for blingy jewelry.
But what truly makes this release special is the empowering message etched on the outsole: “It’s okay to be different.” This mantra serves as a reminder of the strength and resilience Hugo draws upon as he battles Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome.
Notably, this is the second time the Air Jordan 3 has been featured in the annual Doernbecher Freestyle collection. The first appearance was back in 2010 with a striking red and silver design, followed by a re-release in 2013. Mark your calendars for December 2nd, 2023, as the release date for this extraordinary collection on Nike SNKRS and select Jordan retailers!
