That charitable sneaker series that’s always a highlight of the footwear year is finally here, with the new designs for the Nike x Doernbecher Freestyle 2012 unveiled over the weekend. Of course it’s not all about the sneakers, it’s also about the children who designed them, each one with their own heart warming story of determination in the face of illness. We’ve got a recap for you from the event, featuring the likes of the Air Jordan IX, Air Force 1, Nike Free Run 2, and more. Click through for the photos of the unveiling and stick with us for the November 30th release of the Nike x Doernbecher Freestyle 2012 set.
@CC221 resales of the Doernbecher Freestyle shoes certainly are an issue which is why we appreciate support from folks like you who understand the difference between buying the shoes direct from a Nike store or nike.com (of which 100% of the proceeds are donated to Doernbecher Children's Hospital) versus through 3rd party resale sites. We appreciate the help spreading the word that buying direct from Nike ensures that your donation goes directly to kids in need. Thank you everyone! - The Doernbecher Foundation team
i would cop these for $500 if it were from nike direct,and if it went straight to the charity.unfortunately u kno some idiot LOSER wananbe reseller is gonna cop,sell them for $1000+ and spend the profits on weed,liquor,and smelly strippers.or they will buy something stupid like an "H" BELT AND RUB IT IN YOUR FACE.
Thank you nike for doing amazing things like this. Very good project. Hope its around for a long time.
Thank you for sharing the Doernbecher Freestyle IX collection! The kids were so proud to reveal their designs and we hope everyone loves them as much as the kids do. Thanks to everyone for your support of the kids at Doernbecher Children's Hospital. Sincerely, the Doernbecher Foundation team
good for them. i wanna get either the 9s, air force 1s or free runs to contribute to their charity. kinda sad that people wanna cop just to make profit from reselling. smh.
@Doernbecher Foundation @CC221 Hopefully I can buy the 9s & the girls free run 2s, but trying to buy two shoes online rather than 1 I will miss out on both of em, really stressing
@erickwright21 @Doernbecher @CC221 We know that because of the limited supply it can be difficult to get your order. From what we've been told, the shoes will go on sale online at 12:01am PT on the morning of Nov 30th so that should be the first place to secure your pair (especially if you're a night owl!). Stores also have a much more limited quantity than online. Good luck, we hope you get the pairs you were hoping for and thank you!
