Each year, the sneaker community looks forward to the traditional product launch from Nike and the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) entitled the Doernbecher Freestyle — a charitable initiative that usually allows young creatives to design their own sneaker. 2020’s release was unfortunately postponed due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the two parties have now unveiled plans for its next collaboration.

OHSU has announced that on February 25, 2021, it will host “Virtually Freestyle” — an online livestream event that will highlight Doernbecher Freestyle designer alumni, as well as serve as the official reveal for the next collaborative Nike sneaker. Unlike most of the previous drops which involved a variety of different silhouettes, this release will only entail a singular shoe. Its design details are still unknown, but it has been confirmed that it will amalgamate 14 Freestyle designs from the past as means to celebrate this near-decade long alliance. Additionally, all who attend the event with have the opportunity to raise their virtual paddles to donate in support of OHSU Doernbecher.

The hour-long event will commence at 6pm PST on February 25th, 2021, and you can find more information here.

Elsewhere within the realm of footwear, the Nike Offline “Army Olive” sandal has just released.
