For the past five years, Nike had been a wonderful supporter of the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital located in Portland, Oregon by producing limited edition sneakers designed in hand with patients of the hospital. All proceeds from these sneakers then go to benefit the hospital in aid to purchase medical equipment, supplies, pay for research grants and help out families in need.
This year, Nike is back with another charity project for the hospital – Air Yeezy for Doernbcher Charity Auction. In this special auction, two pairs of one-off shoes will be auctioned off on ebay with all proceeds going to the children’s hospital. From this special series is a pair of black Air Yeezy with special Air Jordan VI (6) tooling. These sleek black leather kicks accented with a black patent leather Yeezy strap come housed in a special white-laser customed shoe box with one of the first sketches done by Mark Smith, Creative Director of Jordan Brand, at the beginning of the project.
These shoes come in size 12 and is now available for bidding on eBay till 7:30 pm PDT of September 19th. For those still seeking Yeezy’s now here’s a chance to get your hands on a even more limited pair and for a better cause. Also, check out the video on these special charity kicks! (via freshnessmag)
