The Doernbecher x Nike Freestyle 2018 Collection

The Doernbecher x Nike Freestyle 2018 Collection
For the past 15 years, the Doernbecher Freestyle x Nike program has raised nearly $20 million for OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon. For the 2018 Collection, six brave patient-designers were selected to add personal touches to the Air Jordan 15, SB Dunk Low, Zoom Fly SP, Air Max 97, Air Force 1 Low and Air Max 270.

Check out each shoe, as well as a little insight to the patients and their inspiration below!

Air Jordan 15 by Donovon Dinneen


Featuring a black suede upper embossed with a dragon scale pattern, Donovon Dinneen's Air Jordan 15 is inspired by anime. The 11-year-old underwent a quadruple amputation due to a rare meningococcal infection at age 2.



SB Dunk Low by Joey Bates


12-year old Joey Bates, diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, styled his SB Dunk Lows in green and gold to represent his favorite professional football team. He loves chicken, so a chicken logo is debossed on the heels and a faux turtle shell pattern, symbolic of his favorite figurine, fills the Swooshes.



Zoom Fly SP by Payton Fentress


12-year old Payton Fentress' colourful Zoom Fly SP is inspired by his love of baseball. He's courageously taking on Crohn's disease.


Air Max 97 by Kirsten Brown


Recovering from a stroke and heart transplant, 16-year old Kirsten Brown added a bold 'SRVVR' graphic to the lateral side of her Air Max 97.


Air Force 1 Low by Chloe Swientek


Chloe Swientek, 10 years old, is bravely living with cystic fibrosis. Her Air Force 1 Low features shout outs to mom and dad on the tongues, as well as 'Cure' and 'CF' on the soles.


Air Max 270 by Aiden Barber


9-year old Aiden Barber's Air Max 270 is covered in camouflage as a tribute to his cousin and hero Michael, who currently serves in the military. In 2017, Aiden underwent surgery to correct a vascular malformation.
