Another look at the Air Jordan V “Doernbecher” is upon us, with a clearer view at some interesting details bringing up a number of interesting thoughts surrounding the design. As you know, the Doernbecher Freestyle is a partnership between the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and Nike Inc., in which a select group of young patients are given the opportunity to design a silhouette with the help of a Nike designer. This year’s Air Jordan model (undeniably the “highlight” of the coveted bunch) is the Air Jordan V, and it features a number of great features like a profound message plastered on the upper, the number 9 stitched on the heel, premium inner linings, and what appears to be the initials of the young designer and perhaps a date that honors his eventful life. More views are just below so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on this release and the 2013 Doernbecher Freestyle and we’ll keep you up to date with all the solid, confirmed details.
