In case you missed it, over the weekend Nike and Doernbecher Children's Hospital officially unveiled their 12th Freestyle Collection, deepening the brand's committment and support on top of the $11 million already raised to benefit the facility. However, we are now getting word of something extra special joining this year's Freestyle Collection installment, arriving in the form of the #DBdozen. Designed with the help of Mark Smith and Tinker Hatfield, twelve additional pairs of the Air Jordan 12 will be added to the auction line-up, each featuring Smith and Hatfield's hand-painted interpretation of original silo concept sketches. The models will release over the course of the next month in the lead-up to the larger Doernbecher Freestyle XII collection's release on November 21, which themselves honor and are inspired by the hospital's brave young patients. Check out the official auction schedule and a preview of the models below and hit eBay to get in on the bidding for the first pair now.
