At an event held at the Portland Art Museum this past Saturday, Nike and Doernbecher Hospital presented the 2011 Freestyle Collection for the very first time. This year, six designers nominated by physicians and staff at Doernbecher applied their creative touch to Nike's Skinny Dunk Hi, Shox NZ, Air Max 95, Free Run 2, Vulc-Rod and the Air Jordan IV.
Now in its eighth year, the Doernbecher Freestyle Series has raised more than $3 million dollars for the hospital. This year's lineup will be available starting Saturday, November 5th at select retailers and NikeStore.
