We continue unveiling the Doernbecher Freestyle X collection this week, with a look at Kate Smith’s Nike Roshe Run Doernbecher releasing on November 9. (Check out the Dunk Sky Hi DB designed by Kate’s twin sister, Kira, here.)
Says Nike —
Kate is a gentle 17-year-old with a warrior’s heart—she loves her medieval sword collection and bow and arrow set. Kate’s shoe, the Nike Roshe Run, is the ideal choice for adventurous getaways. The black leather is a nod to the biker jackets she favors; the side panels are her favorite shade of forest green. She added a few rhinestones for extra bling and an embossed coat of arms that features a mythical phoenix clutching Kate’s sword. But the words on the back sum up Kate best: You are stronger than you think you are. “Strong, fierce women like Joan of Arc are some of my favorite role models,” she said. Kate knows a thing or two about overcoming adversity. After battling Obsessive Compulsive Disorder with her twin sister Kira, she emerged victorious from the experience and determined to shed light on the disease, battling the misconceptions head on.
As always, proceeds from the sale of the Roshe Run DB, as well as the rest of the Doernbecher Freestyle collection, will benefit Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
