As with every year, the announcement of the Nike Doernbecher Freestyle Collection earlier this month, number 7 to be exact, brought numerous inquiries and requests (and to answer that question, no we don't sell sneakers) from out readers.  One particular edition is the iconic Air Jordan III Retro, created by Cole Johanson from Portland, Oregon.  After he overcame Burkitt's Lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system, Johanson selected the AJ3 to be his canvas for the Doernbecher Freestyle Collection of this year.  Not only this will make the first AJ3 to be in this unique charitable project, the AJ3 also resonated among Jordan fans because of the many "first" the sneaker represented: the first of the Air Jordan franchise to have the visible Air Sole Unit, the cracked cement/elephant pattern, and the legendary Michael Jordan Jumpman insignia. Cole Johanson's Air Jordan III (AJ3), along with the rest of the Nike Doernbecher Freestyle VII Collection, will be available at NikeTown and Nike online outlets in the next few weeks. 100% of the proceeds will go toward the Doernbecher Children's Hospital and its foundation.  However, if you just can't wait any longer, limited numbers are now available at MarqueeSole.
