Boston Redsox outfielder Shane Victorino was recently at the Doernbecher Freestyle 2014 event Portland where sneakers from the collection went up for auction. Proceeds will go to the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s hospital.
Rumor has it Victorino bought the Air Jordan 8 DB for $12,000. That’s a hefty price to pay but when you are a professional athlete and it’s going to a good cause, the money isn’t that much. Nike also had Kevin Durant signing each pair of Nike Doernbecher’s won, which you can see his signature on the toe box.
The public will have to wait till November 23rd 2014 to purchase any of the Nike DB collection. Retail for the Air Jordan 8 is $180.
