For the past few years, Nike and Jordan Brand teamed up with the Doernbecher Childrens’ Hospital teamed up to release a series of charity sneakers where the sales and proceeds contributed to the hospital. For the latest release, the Air Jordan 1 High seems to be the key shoe. Tony Taylor Jr a.k.a Mr. Bobber is the most recent designer to the Doernbecher Freestyle collection. Tayler fought Nephrotic Syndrome and had a successful kidney transplant. As for the sneakers themselves, they are packaged in a wooden with lasered text and graphics, featuring a gradient upper along with a beach scene outline, gold stitching and gum sole. Lastly, the sneakers also feature Tony on the tongue and is finished off with a tag that names some of the people who contributed to the surgery including his family and doctors.
Jayson Mayden and Estelle Maranan guided Tony with his vision of the project and the inspirations took inspiration from the very experiences of his life. This shoe will release November 14th along with four other Doernbecher children designed shoes. VIA SC.
