Now in its 12th year, the Nike Doernbecher sneaker series has grown into one of the brand's most impactful collections. Done in partnership with the Doernbecher Children's Hospital, this unique collection empowers child patients to bring their stories to life on some of Nike's most popular sneaker models. The 2015 Doernbecher Freestyle event is taking place tonight, and Nike Director of Public Relations just gave us the first look at this year's designs.
This year, the sneaker canvases used were the Nike LeBron 13, Air Max 90 Premium, Free 5.0 TR FIT 5, Zoom Stefan Janoski, Air Max 95 Premium, and Air Jordan XIII. The talented artists responsible for these sneakers are Kian Safholm, Emory Maughan, Lizzy Olivan, Isiah Meumayer-Grubb, Jacob Burris, and John Charles. Hats off to Nike, the Doernbecher Children's Hospital, and most importantly, the young artists who created these inspiring sneakers. There is no doubt that these will go a long way in continuing to raise awareness, money, and hope for children patients everywhere.
These sneakers will be available on Nov. 21, with all proceeds going to OHSU Doernbecher. Read the full story at Nike.com.
