Sneaker History: The Best of Jordan Doernbecher

The Doernbecher series within the Air Jordan brand is special and like no other. Originally starting out in 2007 as a partnership between Nike and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, the program allowed patients to design their very own sneakers. These very sneakers would become iconic special edition Jordans for years to come. Notorious for their unique colorways and high resale value, each shoe makes for an amazing collectors piece or flex option if you rather wear your grails. So, we’re taking a look back at some favorite Doernbecher models throughout the years since Michael Jordan’s documentary “The Last Dance” has sneakerheads everywhere discussing the shoes. Let us know what your favorite Jordan Doernbecher is in the comments @WYExpect
