SoleSavy is Presenting Sponsor of Doernbecher Freestyle XVII

Luis Torres

When it comes to sneaker traditions, there’s nothing as special as Oregon Health & Science University’s Doernbecher Freestyle.

OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital has collaborated with Nike since 2004, creating life-changing memories and unforgettable sneakers. Since 2004, Doernbecher Freestyle has collaborated with more than 100 patient-designers and hundreds of Nike employee volunteers to make each patient’s design dreams come to life.

Every collection has been auctioned and sold, with the Swoosh donating  100% of the retail profits to help raise more than $30 million for the children’s hospital. The oneofakind collaboration between OHSU Doernbecher and Nike has helped to cover the cost of care for families in need, expand pioneering research that benefits kids worldwide, and support specialized care unavailable anywhere else in the region.

The Doernbecher Freestyle is back following a brief hiatus due to the COVID19. On February 25, 2022, seven inspirational and highly creative young patients from OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital will virtually reveal their personally designed Nike sneaker, apparel, and equipment collections.

The upcoming Freestyle collection continues the tradition of representing the life experiences, medical journeys, and relationships of the young patients who created them through unique details, hidden messages, and captivating colors. At the center of the collection is an opportunity for the designers to give back to the hospital that helped save their lives.

Seven young designers will share what it means to live life on your own terms. Be sure to save the date and join us virtually for Freestyle XVII on February 25, 2022.

Meet the Doernbecher Freestyle XVII Patient-Designers



Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
