The Nike Doernbecher Freestyle 2022 was finally shown to the public in late February at a special virtual event, including six distinct designs made by OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital patients. The LeBron 19 was built by 14-year-old Sam David Phelps, an avid basketball fan who dreams of competing for the United States men’s wheelchair basketball team and continues to hone his skills with the Portland WheelBlazers. Check out the official images below, and the Nike Blazer Mid ’77 “White/Black” will be available at select shops and on Nike.com in the coming weeks.
Sam David’s LeBron 19 is dressed in black, gold, and red and features his credo of “Never Back Down,” which is written above the Air Max bag in his handwriting. Lightning bolts appear on the mesh cover and the external mid-foot plate, while his personalized wheelchair logo appears on the forefoot and insoles. More personal information may be found on the heel, which includes his year of birth and initials.
The Nike LeBron 19 Doernbecher, as well as the rest of the Doernbecher collection, will be available later this spring.
