Ventricular Septal Defect, or VSD, usually means there is a hole in your heart, quite literally. But you probably can’t tell from the lively Dacia Kasenga, who underwent treatment for it at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, and her spirited personality. Through her Nike Shox NZ, dazzled in sky blue and accented with metallic silver, it serves as a conduit for her to tell her experience. Once again, courage is the central theme and a word of encouragement to those with serious illness. On the sockline, a more personal note as Kasenga added a EKG readout of a heart beating. Part of the 2011 Nike Doernbecher Freestyle Collection, the Nike Shox NZ designed by Dacia Kasenga will be on sale at $115 for adult sizes and $95 for youth sizings with all proceeds going to the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Scheduled to launch on November 5th through select Nike retail locations.
Release Date: November 5th, 2011 (Saturday)
