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!

Nike Doernbecher Freestyle 2011 - Doernbecher Freestyle is a collaboration between Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon and Nike. Each year, a group of young Doernbecher patients are selected to design Nike shoes to raise funds for the hospital. The patient-designers are asked to use this output as an opportunity to express powerful messages for those you have triumphed like them, or are in need of hope.

The Freestyle designers are nominated each year by physicians and staff at Doernbecher. They then travel to the Nike campus where they sketch their designs with some of Nike’s top creative talent.

This year Warang McManus, Anthony Roletto, Dacia Kasenga, Isaiah Scott, Daniel Bair and Mackenzie Short are the talent behind these inspiring Freestyle sneakers.

These shoes will be available as of November 5th at nike.com
