This September 9th marks a special occasion as the team will unveil the new Nike Vapor Untouchable uniform designed in partnership with the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in an effort to not only win on the field but win the fight against cancer. The uniform features inspiring graphics, color fades, camouflage and more.

13-year-old Ethan Frank, 10-year-old Sophia Malinoski, and 14-year-old Joe MacDonald all worked to coordinate the new uniforms together. Nike will also be releasing sideline gear like this upcoming Nike Air Max 90 Ultra due to release just days before the Ducks take the field in their brand new ‘most important’ uniforms. The pair features matching graphics and positive words of advice from student athletes and past Nike designers part of the ongoing Doernbecher Freestyle Program.

The Nike Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 “Oregon” will release early starting September 4th in a full family size run on Nike+ SNKRS and Nike.com. Check out the full story below and head over to Nike News for the kids’ reactions to the design program.
