Nike X Doernbecher Children’s Hospital 2012 Freestyle Collection - Every year, Nike and Oregan’s Doernbecher Children’s Hospital collaborate to create a unique collection of sneakers intended to empower kids with serious illnesses.
A few lucky young patients from the hospital work alongside Nike designers picking colours, materials and other important details in order to create sneakers that represents their individual stories and personalities.
This year, the Freestyle Collection includes a Nike Dunk High SB designed by Finnigan Mooney, a women’s Free Run+ 2 DB by Kylie Bell, a men’s Free Run + 2 DB by Grant Olsen, an Air Force 1 DB created by Chad Berg, an Air Max 90 DB by Autumn Boynton and an Air Jordan 9 Retro DB designed by Oswaldo Jimenez
The Limited Edition Doernbecher Collection shoes will be sold exclusively at www.nike.com and at Nike retail locations across the country beginning November 30th. All proceeds from the range will be donated to the Hospital. To date, the program has raised more than $4 million!
