Each year, Nike collaborate with OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, to create special sneakers, designed alongside the patents in the hospital. Last year on their 15th, they had raised nearly $20 million alongside Doernbecher Freestyle for the hospital.
This 16th annual Doernbecher collection comes with a pretty Air Force 1 design, created by 14-year-old Zion Thompson from Eugene, Oregon, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system.
The silhouette comes with white leather on the upper, accented with floral embossed detailing around the toe box in white, as well as embroidered Swoosh detailing on the sidewalls, in a white and black floral material.
Underfoot, as well as inside on the insole, the word “survivor” gets designed in a repeat pattern, adding a unique and quirky touch to the classic Air Force 1 silhouette.
Finished off with further floral embroidery designs on the heel of the shoe, as well as the signature Air cushioning within the midsole of the sneaker.
The full collection will be released alongside a special, limited-edition auction on November 8th at the Peter W. Scott Center in Portland, Oregon.
Stay tuned for any wider release details that could be coming for the Nike Air Force 1 Doernbecher, as well as where and when to cop over the coming week.
