Nike Doernbecher Freestyle VI - Jordan Dark's Air Jordan VI (6) Retro


There is a happy coincidence with this sneaker designed for the Nike Doernbecher Freestyle VI project for Doernbecher Children's Hospital. The young creative shares the same Jordan name, all be it first and surname, and Jordan Dark definitely turned up the heat and makes a great design concept for the Air Jordan VI Retro.

Jordan lives in Mt. Angel in Oregon and he says that he is shy on the outside but shiny on the inside which could very well be the underlining concept of the shoes by keeping the exterior clean and simple with the inner being shiny and metallic. The upper consist of suede like material that is embossed in the toe box and portions of the side panels. Primary color of navy blue is accented with red on the upper tongue pull, heel pull and hints on the midsole. The inner of the shoes are lined with metallic gold fabric that is embroidered with wire fence like design in navy blue. Number 1 symbol is embroidered in white on the heel and on the inside of the tongue is another embroidery that reads 'What time is it?'.

Jordan is diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma which is a malignant round cell tumor. It is a rare disease in which cancer cells are found in the bone or in soft tissue. The most common areas in which it occurs are the pelvis, the femur, the humerus and the ribs.
