Last night's Nike Doernbecher Freestyle unveiling in Portland not only provided us with a first look at this year's sneaker collection, but a few unexpected gems as well.
Among them, an ultra-rare pair of Air Jordans that was auctioned off for charity. In addition to a pair of Damien Phillips' Doernbecher Air Jordan 7 signed by Michael Jordan himself, an alternate version of the design limited to just two pairs was auctioned off to raise additional funds for the hospital. Together, the pairs fetched $46,000, a Doernbecher event record.
The alternate version of Phillips' design sees the shoe reinterpreted in mostly black leather and suede. As of now, there are no plans to release additional pairs to the public.
