Nike's 2018 Doernbecher Freestyle Collection launches in December.
Nike recently introduced their 2018 Doernbecher Freestyle Collection, featuring six different sneakers designed by six brave kids, with 100 percent of the proceeds from the sales of the collection to benefit OHSU Doernbecher.
According to Nike, the annual Doernbecher Collection started out as an idea from Connor Doherty, the son of Nike Creative Director and OHSU Doernbecher Foundation board member Michael Doherty. His suggestion — enabling the hospital’s young patients to engage their imaginations by designing their very own Nike sneakers — formalized in 2003 as the OHSU Doernbecher Freestyle program.
The 2018 collection includes an Air Jordan 15, Nike Air Force 1 Low, Nike Air Max 97, Nike Air Max 270, Nike SB Dunk Pro Low and Nike Zoom Fly SP. Adult and youth sizes will launch December 14 in SNKRS North America, and the full apparel collection will launch December 15 on nike.com and at select Nike retail and partner stores.
