Doernbecher X Nike

Scroll down…crazy shoes right?  Who would wear such wacky sneakers, I would never buy/wear such things!  But what if I told you these shoes were designed by kids and proceeds were going to charity?  Now scroll down again…not so bad, eh?  Originally started in 2004, the Doernbecher Freestyle was started by Michael Doherty, Nike’s Creative Director of Global Brand Presentations, and designer Marcus Tayui (of Co.Jp, OG Nike SB, and QS/Tier1 fame) to raise funds for the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.  Marcus envisioned using the assistance of patients in the hospital to aide in the design process.  2012 marks the 9th edition of the Freestyle, with over 4 million dollars benefiting the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.  A release date has been set for 11/30/12!
