It appears that 2013 will have not one but two Air Jordan Doernbecher editions. Next up is the Air Jordan 10 from Daniel Pena, a sneaker that fortunately takes advantage of the liberties granted by the charitable program. The sneakers feature his own personal logo, a unique camo treatment, and a tire tread print slapped on in reference to his former love of BMX riding. Where does the Air Jordan X “Doernbecher” rank amongst all time Doernbecher Jordans? Let us know in the comments and check back in on Sneaker News as we bring you the rest of the 2013 Doernbecher Freestyle collection from Nike.
Update: The Air Jordan 10 “Doernbecher” will release on November 9, 2013.

Daniel Pena, 12
Air Jordan Retro 10 and Tee
Daniel is a huge Michael Jordan fan, with an encyclopedic knowledge of every game, every comeback, and every shoe released throughout Jordan’s illustrious career. So when it was confirmed that he’d be designing a Jordan shoe for the collection, Daniel said, “I kind of freaked out.” Like Jordan, Daniel has reinvented himself as an athlete again and again. Because his hemophilia causes problems in his ankle, he frequently changes up his sports so that he can continue to compete. Daniel’s shoe, the Nike Air Jordan Retro 10 is also a story of reinvention. It features a slew of first-ever features, like a modified logo that’s customized just for Daniel. It’s also the first time you’ll ever see a clear outsole on the Jordan Retro 10. The stealthy upper sports a glossy camo print that’s inspired by Daniel’s love of video games. And in a nod to his days riding the BMX circuit, a tire tread races down the heel and straight into the sockliner.
