Nike Dunk Low "Doernbecher" by Lance Dillon Release Update

Earlier this summer Nike announced that they would re-release 5 limited quantity Doernbecher models online. Well, today we have the final model that will re-release to share with you. 

Lance Dillon first participated in the Doernbecher Freestyle program in 2007 while undergoing chemotherapy for leukemia. Working with Nike designer Mark Smith, Lance revealed the depths of his creativity in creating the Nike Dunk Low. Lasered graffiti graphics on the upper feature motivational words like fight, warrior and power along with the names of Lance’s family and the number of days Lance has gone through chemotherapy.
Today, Lance is a 24-year-old with a degree in anthropology from Oregon State University and fondly remembers his Doernbecher experience. “Getting to work with the Nike staff and design my own shoe are things that I will always remember. But the greatest part of it was knowing that it was helping other kids that were going through the same things that I went through.”
Look for Lance’s limited-edition Nike Dunk Low on August 31 at and Nike retail locations across the US. All proceeds benefit the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation and the young patients who need it most.

Lance's Dunk Low will be available in sizes 7-13, 14 & 15 for $85 with a limit of one per customer. You can cop your pair from these select retailers: NIKETOWN New York, Nike Georgetown, Nike Chicago, Nike Roosevelt Field, Nike Portland, Nike San Francisco, Nike Dallas, NIKETOWN Los Angeles, Nike Lenox and Nike Las Vegas.
