One of the upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018 is going to be a part of the recently unveiled Nike x Doernbecher Freestyle 2018 Collection. Jordan Brand and Nike have a long-standing annual tradition of collaborating with the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital since back in 2007. Every year, some of the young patients at the hospital are selected to design specific Air Jordan and Nike sneaker models to be a part of the annual Doernbecher Collection. Nike recently unveiled the Doernbecher Freestyle 2018 Collection, along with the names and photos of the children involved. The collection contains an Air Jordan and several Nike sneaker models.
Remembering The Nike Doernbecher Freestyle Collection 2017
Like this year’s collection, the one from last year also included six different models. These were the Air Huarache Run Ultra, Air Jordan 12, Air Max The Ultra Flyknit, Air More Uptempo, SB Zoom Stefan Janoski, and the Air Vapormax. The children who designed the sneakers were Andrew Merydith, Amiyah Robinson, Brayden Sparkman, Brody Miller, Carissa Navarro, and Tylan Hibbard. The gradual releases of the sneakers from the Nike Doernbecher Freestyle Collection 2017 began on November 18th last year. Of course, as always, all of the proceeds generated from the sales of those sneakers went towards the benefit of the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
The Children & Sneakers Involved In The Doernbecher Freestyle 2018 Collection
Over the course of 15 years, the Doernbecher Freestyle Program has evolved tremendously and a great deal of proceeds have been generated for the hospital through it. However, in addition to the money, the program has served as a unique way of catering towards the healing of the children from hospital.
