Now in its sixth year the Nike Doernbecher Freestyle have raised more than $2 million for the benefit programs at Doernbecher to date. This year another group of talented young minds were selected and Bradley Bowlby from Stevenson, Washington has chosen to modify one of Nike's monumental sneakers, the Air Force 1 Low.
Bradley explains himself as a mud loving chef in training and it is reflected on his sneaker design with the toe sections and lace loops in mud like brown colorway that is balanced by the side and rear sections in green with random prints of dogs, deers, motocross bikes and fork & spoons. Mustard colored inner lining adds spark to the Earth tones and the mustard colored inner sole features an outline of a dog printed in black. On the outsole is the large blocked colors of black, brown and green making a camouflage pattern.
These sneakers are available at Niketown nationwide and through Nike online stores with proceeds going to the Doernbecher to help the children at the hospital.
