Nike's connection to the Doerncbecher Children's Hospital is well documented through the "Freestyle" collection that comes out each year, but the brand's commitment to helping out doesn't stop there. With the help of Tinker Hatfield and Michael Jordan, Nike donated two very special Air Jordan Xs to be auctioned off at the second annual Grimm Gala last month.
Following the theme of the night, Hatfield drew characters from the cast of Grimm onto the sneakers. As if the custom artwork from Hatfield wasn't enough got these to fetch big bucks, Jordan also added his autograph to them, making them an unforgettable collector's item for fans of the show. The exact amount that the sneaker's were auctioned off for hasn't been disclosed, but the entire event netted $386,000 for the hospital. We're used to seeing exclusive Air Jordan sneakers sell for thousands of dollars, but it's great to see the funds go to such an impactful charity this time.
