Officially unveiled in late February at a special virtual event, the Nike Doernbecher Freestyle 2022 has finally been introduced to the public, featuring six unique designs created by child-patients at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. The LeBron 19, seen here via official images, was designed by 14-year-old Sam David Phelps; An avid hoops fan, Sam David dreams of playing for the USA men’s wheelchair basketball team and continues to hone his game playing for the Portland WheelBlazers.
Dressed in black, gold and red, Sam David’s LeBron 19 centers around his Never Back Down mantra, which appears via his writing above the Air Max bag. Lightning bolts appear on the outer midplate as well as the mesh cover, while his custom wheelchair logo appears on the forefoot and insoles. More intimate details can be spotted on the heel, where his birth year and initials are inscribed.
The Nike LeBron 19 Doernbecher and the entire Doernbecher sneaker collection are set to release later this spring.
