The Air Jordan 1 “What The Doernbecher” pays tribute to the 14 patient-designers from across the genealogy of Air Jordan Doernbecher Freestyle designs, incorporating elements from each of their original Air Jordan Doernbecher designs.
This special edition Doernbecher x Air Jordan 1 delivers heritage style with premium materials, comfortable leather and responsive, lightweight Air cushioning. It combines design details from all 14 previous Air Jordan x Doernbecer designs into one “What The” shoe.
In honor of the 17th year of the program, only 17 pairs of the Doernbecher x Air Jordan 1 “What The” were created. The first Air Jordan 1 “What The Doernbecher”, with a custom lasered box, was auctioned off during the Virtually Freestyle event on Thursday, February 25th. The remaining 16 pairs will be auctioned on eBay beginning at 12 PM PT on Friday, February 26th and ending at 12 PM PT on Wednesday, March 3rd.
All proceeds from the sale of the Doernbecher x Air Jordan 1 “What The” pairs will benefit OHSU Doernbecher patients and staff in a variety of different ways – from the delivery of advanced clinical treatment to the emotional support that helps to lift spirits and spread hope.
