The University of Oregon football team will be taking the field on Sept. 9 wearing special uniforms designed by three pediatric cancer survivors: 14-year old Joe Macdonald, 10-year old Sophia Malinoski, and 13-year old Ethan Frank as a part of Nike's Doernbecher Freestyle Program. The predominantly white and silver uniforms will include features like color fades, camouflage patterns, and motivational slogans that were inspired by each of the three children.
Before the Ducks take the field, Nike is also releasing a special Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 to commemorate the occasion. This colorway takes inspiration from the uniforms that will be worn in the game, and features motivational slogans on the mud guards, a white to yellow gradient on the mesh upper, and an Oregon logo on the tongue. Other details include silver lace tips that read "Overcome" and "Oregon," and special insoles that feature Oregon's mascot on the heel stomping on "Cancer," and the same slogan featured on the mud guards.
The Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 "Doernbecher" releases Sept. 4 on nike.com and at select retailers alongside matching fan gear and sideline apparel with all of the proceeds going to a pediatric cancer fund at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
