This past Saturday, Doernbecher Children's Hospital, Nike and six young designers took over the Portland Art Museum for the Doernbecher Freestyle IX Unveiling Event. Behind auctions for the first run of Freestyle IX sneakers, the event raised $593,290 for the Children's Hospital, in addition to a gift of $891,000 from Nike from sales of the 2011 collection.
Check out photos of Autumn, Chad, Finnigan, Grant, Kylie and Oswaldo presenting their personally designed sneakers below.
