Jordan Brand finally gives the Air Jordan XIII a much-needed Doernbecher Freestyle treatment for its 12th anniversary, and its one of the flashiest designs we’ve seen to date from the Children’s charity hospital. Designed by patient John Charles, the sneaker has received quilted teal patent leather and matching midsole, surrounded a beautiful black scaled material. Lime green laces provide a tight fit.
A number of details from John’s personal life have been incorporated as well. The usual Jumpman hologram has been replaced with John’s initials, while the lace tips have been marked with his favorite eatery, Jojo’s Chicken. Additional details have been placed on the sneaker’s black and hot pink sock liner and insole, including his brother Jonah, his German shepherd, and well as John’s dream travel destination, the Egyptian Pyramids.
The Air Jordan XIII Doernbecher will hit stores on November 21, with all proceeds going to OSHU Hospital.
