Nike has brought back several iconic "Doernbecher" sneaker collabs this week in celebration of 15 years of the Doernbecher Freestyle Collection, but they've saved the best for last. Well, at least last for this week - we're hopeful there are even more DB retros in the works.
According to J23 App, the iconic Air Jordan 6 "Doernbecher" will be releasing again tomorrow, February 23, at 10am ET via Nike SNKRS. As always, all proceeds benefit children’s health and well-being at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.

The kicks, priced at $190, were originally created by Jordan Dark in 2009. There are a number of special details, including two significant dates of his battle against cancer. "06/08" for his first day of chemo, and 04/09 representing his last. The midnight navy and varsity red colorway serve as a nod to Dark's high school's colors, while the outsole introduced the first ever all-translucent outsole on a Air Jordan VI.
Dark is now 21 years old and cancer free.
