Following a brief hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Doernbecher Freestyle program has returned in 2022 with a total of seven new renditions. 

On February 25, 2022, seven inspirational – and highly creative – young patients from OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon, will virtually reveal their personally designed Nike sneaker, apparel and equipment collections.

Often adorned with intricate details, hidden messages and unexpected color palettes, these coveted designs represent the life experiences, medical journeys and relationships of the young patients who created them. Importantly, the collections also provide an opportunity for these special designers to give back to the hospital that helped save their lives.

The collection arrives as a part of a partnership between OHSU and Nike since 2004 which has allowed over 100 different kids to design special renditions of sneakers to release to the general public. With all of those releases, Nike has raised over $30 million in funds that cover the cost of family needs of patients at the hospital.

The collection will be released on February 25th, 2022 and we will be waiting to provide all the news regarding this year’s collection so make sure to stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for all of the latest updates and sneaker news.
