The new Air Jordan 5 Low “Doernbecher Freestyle” shoe from Jordan Brand will be released soon.
Following its unveiling in February, the sportswear giant has confirmed via the SNKRS app that the multi-shoe collection will release before the end of the month. The latest offering features a new iteration of Michael Jordan’s signature shoe designed by OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital patient Michael Wilson.
The Air Jordan 5 Low “Doernbecher Freestyle” features a multi-colored leather upper and features various graphics of airplanes, sharks, as well as macaroni and cheese throughout the model. Breaking up the look is a voile midsole and translucent outsole.
“Michael ‘Spitfire’ Wilson is a perpetually positive kid with a serious love of airplanes, sharks, and mac and cheese. His top-flight Air Jordan 5 features all of the above, plus cool interchangeable patches so you can wear it your way. Michael says he’s thrilled to have the chance to give back to the doctors who helped save his life as a baby. “Without them, I wouldn’t be in the world today,” wrote Jordan Brand for the product description of the shoe.
In addition to Wilson’s aforementioned Air Jordan 5 Low colorway, this year’s Nike “Doernbecher Freestyle” collection includes a special Dunk Low, Zoom Vapor Cage 4, SB Zoom Stefan Janoski, Air Force 1 Fontanka, Blazer Mid and LeBron 19 which are each designed by other children at OSHU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
The Air Jordan 5 Low “Doernbecher Freestyle” drops April 30 via SNKRS at 10 a.m. ET for $200.
