Nike‘s Doernbecher Freestyle Project is one that sneakerheads big and small, young and old can all get around. For the last ten years, Nike has worked with patients at the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital to help make their dreams and their creativity become a reality. If you’ve been following along with us for some time, you know that these releases are the real deal; full of style, emotion, color, and imagination despite the tough times that these children face. The latest edition actually honors a release that first hit back in 2007, which was designed by Lance Dillion and used the Nike Dunk Low as a canvas. The all-leather, low-top upper of the Dunk features olive and tan tones and showcases laser-etched detailing all around for a dramatic, edgy effect. The look also includes a crazy font featuring the names of his family, who helped Lance to overcome cancer and graduate from college, as well as “warrior,” “power,” and “fight,” which helped him when his battle. The Doernbecher x Nike Dunk Low by Lance Dillon will release on August 31st at Nike retailers and Nike.com, but, until then, continue after the click for more looks of this kick with serious attitude.
Release Date: August 31, 2013 (Saturday)
