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!

Most of the S&S Collection by Nike X Stussy was released and sold out this October, but my personal favorites of the line are set to drop this Saturday, November 3rd.
Each shoe comes in three unique color ways, and I’m seriously digging all of them. Too bad the smallest size is men’s 7 because the last time I risked it with the Nike X Stussy Court Force Highs a bunch of thick socks just couldn’t help me. Still worth it though.
More about the S&S Collection:
Snow. Sand. Street. Off Mountain Series [OMS] is inspired by every surface. The S&S Collection from Nike and Stüssy combines both brands’ histories of innovation, sub-cultural use beyond tracks, courts and trails, plus over 12 years of pioneering collaborations. This new collection with its unique colorways, light materials and innovating cushioning systems are on point for profiling, posing and conquering horizontal limits rather than vertical ones. We’re still doing our own thang.
