Doernbecher Freestyle X: Nike Free Run 5.0 Doernbecher


Nike Free Run 5.0 Doernbecher

We’re finishing up the Doernbecher Freestyle X collection’s rollout today, which brings us to another outstanding creation: Jake Dering’s Nike Free Run 5.0 Doernbecher.

Jake, 8, who suffers from a rare genetic condition called Otopalatodigital syndrome type II, used his experiences not just in designing the shoe, but in picking the model itself. The Free Run 5.0 — selected becuase, as Jake puts it, “I just really want to be free of all this stuff . . . No halo, no cast, no crutches.” — is hit with iridescent material to give it the appearance of constant motion, something Jake, an avid dancer, can relate to.

Further drawing from his experiences, Jake lends a little of his own personal courage and perserverance to the shoe. The insoles read “Never Give Up” and “Be Brave” on alternating feet, while the inner-lining is emblazoned with “I wasn’t made to fit in, I was made to stand out.”

Jake’s Free Run 5.0 Doernbecher releases November 9, along with the rest of the Doernbecher Freestyle X collection. Proceeds from sales will go to benefit Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
