Nike and Jordan Release 2015 Doernbecher Freestyle October 23 2015, 0 Comments

Nike gives back to the community whenever they can. This has become an annual tradition and a great one too. Every year, Nike selects kids from the Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Portland, Oregon. They design some of Nike's top models and they get produced. The proceeds go to the hospital.

When Michael Doherty, Nike’s Creative Director of Global Brand Presentations, joined the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation board in 2004, he was asked to suggest new ways to garner support for the hospital.
Doherty’s teenage son Connor, an avid sneaker collector, offered a simple solution: combine the creative resources of Nike with the imaginations of OHSU Doernbecher’s young patients to produce one-of-a-kind shoes.
Now in its 12th year, the Doernbecher Collection continues to strive for the kids. The Collections have raised of $11 million to help research and to pay for state-of-the-art equipment. The best part of these shoes are the kids who get to share their stories. The Air Jordans always headline the Collection and this time, the Jordan XIIIs are the canvas. See the colorful and exotic kicks below:
