Buy The Sneaker, The Air Jordan 1 "What The" Doernbecher combines elements from each Jordan x Doernbecher collab since the inception. Given the legacy and current momentum of the Air Jordan 1, the silhouette choice only adds to the shoe's desirability. This special edition Doernbecher x Air Jordan 1 delivers heritage style with premium materials, comfortable leather and responsive, lightweight Air cushioning. It combines design details from all 14 previous Air Jordan x Doernbecer designs into one "What The" shoe.
New Jordans, In honor of the 17th year of the program, only 17 pairs of the Doernbecher x Air Jordan 1 "What The" were created. The Nike and Doernbecher Freestyle event has raised more than $29 million for OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital since 2003 to protect the health of children in Oregon, southwest Washington and beyond. The Air Jordan 1 "What The Doernbecher" pays tribute to the 14 patient-designers from across the genealogy of Air Jordan Doernbecher Freestyle designs, incorporating elements from each of their original Air Jordan Doernbecher designs. In lieu of the traditional experience due to the pandemic, Nike and OHSU have chosen to deliver a fitting tribute to this lasting legacy with the Air Jordan 1 "What The Doernbecher". Truthfully, only the Air Jordan 1 is a capable platform to mix and match this amount of creativity.
Jordan Release 2020, Instead of a range of shoes designed by the children, Nike and Doernbecher settled on one shoe, a "What The" themed Air Jordan 1 made up of elements of Doernbecher Freestyle designs of the past. Unlike past years, this shoe isn't being prepped for a wide release—instead a very limited run of 17 pairs was produced, with the first auctioned off tonight during the Virtually Freestyle event. For nearly two decades, the Nike and the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital have worked closely together for its annual Doernbecher Freestyle event, a charity-driven project that teams designers at the brand with hand-selected young patients who are undergoing recovery at the institution. Through this collaboration has come an annual series of footwear designs, appealing to both the philanthropic community and sneaker fans and resulting in $29 million raised for charity. The OHSU Doernbecher collections have been the highlights of sneaker culture for years. The annual tradition combines the beauty of sneakers as passion and philanthropy collide as patients of OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital design masterpieces that document their journey, resilience, and passions.
