This weekend the 2015 Nike Doernbecher Collection will release online and at select Nike retailers. For nearly a decade, the Doernbecher Freestyle Collection has given sick children the opportunity to design their dream sneakers. Since it’s birth in 2007, the project has raised over $11 million to help extend Doernbecher Children’s Hospital’s pioneering research and clinical care. Year after year this partnership has been a meaningful exchange of creativity, ideas, and skills. The 2015 collection brings ideas to life across 6 popular silhouettes. Traditionally the resale value behind these kicks has been outrageous so it’s recommend you cop at retail.

The extensive lineup includes the Air Jordan 13 Retro, Nike LeBron 13, Nike Air Max 95, Nike Air Max 90, Nike SB Stefan Janoski, and the Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 5. Nikeheads have grown to appreciate the collection for more than its unorthodox appeal. The Doernbecher Freestyle Collection is critical to raising awareness and the spirits of sick patients. Each vibrant offering is a reflection of the life and joy inside each of these sick kids. On a lighter note, this annual sprinkling of footwear is the perfect excuse to add more color to your collection.

Conveniently, Nike has included a line of apparel to compliment each of the 6 releases. Needless to say, the Air Jordan 13 Retro is the most hyped silhouette in the collection. Similar to other Doernbecher releases, words of encouragement are found detailing the sneaker’s outsole. Distinguishing features include shades of teal, black, pink and lime across a snakeskin upper.
