Nike Air Max new

“We created these shoes to capture the duality that exists in the world that the show has created and in the lives of the children being treated at OHSU Doernbecher,” explained Tinker Hatfield. “The project is close to the hearts of many people at Nike and every year it fills us with emotion to be able to do certain things to support the fundraising for the hospital and The Grimmster Endowment.”This year’s gala grew the endowment by over $386,000 USD.To celebrate his new partnership with adidas, Pharrell Williams created a collection of 10 pairs of custom adidas Originals Stan Smiths featuring his own hand-drawn artwork which were sold at French retailer, colette.

The proceeds from the sales of these highly collectible shoes went towards Pharrell’s charity, From One Hand to anOTHER, whose mission statement states that they want “To change the world one kid at a time by providing them the tools and resources to meet their unique potential.”During their collaborative history, footwear retailer, BAIT, and Saucony have donated over $100,000 USD to various charities as part of their “CruelWorld” series which returned this January for its sixth incarnation with a Saucony Shadow 5500 “Giant Leaps” model, which paid homage to the moon landing and specifically benefited the Follow Your Dreams organization in the United Kingdom who helps kids with learning disabilities pursue their dreams.

Previously, the duo presented the BAIT x Saucony Shadow 6000 CruelWorld 5 “New World Water” silhouette which referenced the world’s water crisis – with a portion of the profits awarded to Water.org – while other ventures included building a totally animal product-free shoe, a global warming warning, and a look that was inspired by Los Angeles’s Midnight Mission, located in the heart of Skid Row, which holds one of the largest stable populations of homeless in the United States.
