The Doernbecher x Nike Freestyle Collection is now in its seventh installment and like the previous collections, the highlight is certainly on the Air Jordan design. When Sneaker News first broke the news about the Air Jordan III being the model of choice for the Doernbecher Freestyle VII, many sneakerheads were excited at the possibilities. Given the eccentric nature of the colors and graphics used on the previous Doernbecher x Air Jordan releases, the possibilities were endless. Cole Johanson, the 11-year-old athlete and food-lover who was given the Air Jordan III as his assignment, came up with a unique design that still maintained that Air Jordan flare, as Cole used a tonal red upper and elephant print with a black and metallic silver mudguard. What took Cole’s design to the next level was his selection of a translucent ‘ice’ sole with red contrast stitching as well as a unique lasered graphic on the upper. The tongue and heel feature a black base with silver branding, and red-on-red elephant print is definitely a nice twist on the classic Air Jordan III trademark. Take a look at these new images of Cole Johanson’s Doernbecher x Air Jordan III design and stick with Sneaker News for release info regarding this upcoming release.
