Jordan Brand and Nike have unveiled the Doernbecher Freestyle XIX collection. Amongst the six unique shoes designed by child patients from OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, the Air Jordan 3 receives a new iteration in time for the holidays.
Designed by Hugo “Juice” Covarrubias Molina, he took inspiration from the Seattle Seahawks’ team colors in the navy blue and slime green. As a nod to the young boy’s nickname, the slime green descends on the ankle as a nod to the designer. The hang-tag, which is plated with 24-carat gold, represents Juice’s love for jewelry. The outsole of the shoes feature a powerful message that states, “It’s okay to be different,” a source of inspiration for Juice who copes with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome. Carrying a navy leather upper with the slime green to accent the tongues, mudguard and semi-translucent outsole, the elephant print also highlights the toe and heel guard.
The release of the Air Jordan 3 Doernbecher “Hugo” is slated to release on December 2 at select retailers and online at Nike for $210 USD.
