Starting in 2007, the Jordan brand decided to have kids from the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon create their own sneakers to take their minds off all the struggles they were going through. Each year Jordan releases a new kick designed by kids with their own flare. Towards the end of the year, five or six kids are chosen to create their own custom shoes and the best one is set to retail. Let’s take a look back on the past five sneakers created by Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
Which ones are your favorite? Were you able to get your hands on any of these drops?
Air Jordan 2 Doernbecher
The Jordan II ‘Doernbecher’ was a very limited release in November, 2007 by Sheridan Brenton. Sheridan was in a car accident when he was ten in which all of the bones in his face were broken and his arm was torn off. Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and Nike gave him the great opportunity of creating his own personal Jordan. The shoe features a black and green colorway with green chameleon skin and a yellow and red tongue. The shoe retailed at $140, but is now going for around $600.
