Release date Air Jordan 5 Low Doernbecher DR6287-486

2022 marked the long-awaited return of the Doernbecher Freestyle, whose 17th iteration includes seven new patients from the ever-talented OHSU Children’s Hospital Doernbecher. And among this collection, which, after a series of charity auctions on eBay, will soon hit wider retailers, Michael Wilson’s Air Jordan 5 Low is arguably the most exciting offering.

Two months after his birth, Wilson was diagnosed with Krabbe disease, a rare genetic disease that destroys the protective coating of nerve cells in the brain and nervous system. And although often fatal, the young sneaker designer thankfully had his late older brother Marshall, whose previous experience with the disease prompted doctors to be on the lookout. “My brother helped save my life,” Wilson commented.

Ten years later, Michael Wilson is as happy a kid as anyone, with a love for everything from airplanes to macaroni and cheese. And with the Air Jordan 5 Low, all those passions translate into a colorful colorway rich in references. “Take Flight”, for starters, adorns the shoe, nodding to one of Wilson’s mottos. In addition, pasta reports double and patterned toe; a shark is printed on the tongue label; and the eyes sit behind the silhouette mesh, turning the AJ5 into a dynamic fighter.

In the meantime, as we anticipate a retail release this spring, take a look at the Air Jordan 5 Low “Doernbecher” below.
