Nike Auctions Hand Painted Air Jordan 12's for Doernbecher Children's Hospital


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.
