Nike‘s 2019 Doernbecher Freestyle collection is set to get a lot bigger, as 5 new takes on the Zoom Pulse — a shoe designed for medical professionals — will join its ranks. Crafted by the same patients that worked on the main collection, each pair tells a tale specific to its young designer, and is rife with meaningful details/special accents.

Leading things off is an all-over printed iteration that mixes hospital-centric motifs like thermometers, needles and a humorous nurse head graphic. This playful ethos comes as no surprise when you realize it was designed by Kahleah, the same patient that made a light-hearted React Element 55. Next up is a black and yellow floral printed version. If the embellishments look somewhat familiar, that’s because they are: young designer Zion used a similar motif on his Air Force 1. A mismatched pair that features a black left foot and white right foot — both equipped with colorful graphics — arrives courtesy of Desiree, who also imagined the mainline offerings’ SB Janoski.

Continuing the collection is a Oklahoma City Thunder-style orange, black and blue design made by Bransen, who used the same hues on his Air Max Triax 96. And last but certainly not least, a grey/white pair with cheery “Hope” hits arrives courtesy of Sawyer, the brave kid who chose the Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 for his first design.

All six pairs feature a water-repellant upper, non-slip rubber sole and comfortable Zoom Air cushioning, designed to meet the needs of nurses and doctors who spend long days on their feet. Each will release exclusively to NikePlus members on Nike’s come December 7, with an MSRP of $120 USD.
