Hugo “Juice” Covarrubias Molina, the designer behind the Air Jordan 3 in this collection, drew inspiration from the Seattle Seahawks’ team colors—navy blue and slime green. The latter color descends down the ankle as a nod to the young boy’s nickname. Additionally, Juice’s love for flashy jewelry is reflected in the hang-tag, which is impressively plated with 24-carat gold. The outsole of the shoe features a powerful message: “It’s okay to be different,” serving as a source of inspiration for Hugo as he copes with his Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome condition.

This release marks the second time the Air Jordan 3 has been featured in the annual Doernbecher Freestyle sneaker collection. Its first appearance was in 2010, featuring a red and silver design, and it was re-released in 2013.
