Nike has joined forces with NBC drama Grimm and this year’s Grimm Gala fundraising event to support The Grimmster Endowment at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital — an endeavor which provides critical financial support to cover the costs of care, travel, lodging, and more for patients and their families. Nike’s contribution? A special pack of Air Jordan 10s.

Signed by designer Tinker Hatfield and none other than MJ himself, the pack includes two different versions of the iconic silhouette: a premium black leather make-up with a herringbone collar for men and a white women’s version lined in plush fur. Said Hatfield of the kicks:

We created these shoes to capture the duality that exists in the world that the show has created and in the lives of the children being treated at OHSU Doernbecher. The project is close to the hearts of many people at Nike and every year it fills us with emotion to be able to do certain things to support the fundraising for the hospital and The Grimmster Endowment.

Auctions for the signed pairs will start at $2,000 USD and begin this Friday, April 15 on eBay at 9 a.m. PDT. Eight non-signed pairs — four of each colorway — will also be up for grabs with those bids starting at $1,000 USD each. All proceeds from their sales will go to the Endowment — which already grew by $386,000 USD at the aforementioned gala earlier this year.
