Nike’s annual Doernbecher Freestyle Program which debuted in 2004, continues this year, as it’s essentially a collaboration with OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon.
Featuring the Nike Air Max Zero, designed by 10-year old Chehayla Hyatt, who currently battling cystic fibrosis — one day while receiving treatment, she looked up and spotted a flock of wooden birds hanging from the ceiling. “Mom,” she said, “the birds are like the Doernbecher staff. They take us under their wings.”
With this theme in mind, the vibrance and wisdom is simply prevalent across the silhouette’s color palette of barely orange, sunset glow, lime green and purple.
Retailing for $130, you can purchase this limited edition pair at select Nike stockists starting Saturday, December 17th.
