One of Jordan Brand‘s most sought-after silhouettes is set to make its long-awaited return. Just in time for the 15th anniversary of the original Doernbecher Freestyle collection, the Air Jordan 6 “Doernbecher Freestyle” is once again up for grabs.
Jordan Dark first designed this Air Jordan 6 a decade ago in 2009, when he was undergoing chemotherapy in Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. The dates of his first and last days of chemo — 06/08 and 04/09 — are embossed on the suede upper, with tonal stripes for a sporty touch.
“Midnight Navy” up top contrasts with the “Varsity Red” accents on the tongue, heel and midsole, a nod to Dark’s high school team colors. The outsole is another all-important touch, as it was the first-ever semi-translucent outsole ever used on an Air Jordan 6. Gold touches on the collar and tongue complete the premium design.
The Air Jordan 6 “Doernbecher Freestyle” drops on February 23 for $190 USD via Nike’s SNKRS app, and as usual, the proceeds will benefit Doernbecher Children’s hospital.
