Nike's Doernbecher Freestyle project is one of the most admirable and unique charitable pursuits in fashion, and the 2015 collection was unveiled Friday.

Each year, in conjunction with Oregon Health & Science University's Doernbecher Children's Hospital, Nike grants patients the ability to craft signature sneakers as a way to raise money for the hospital.

According to Nike, the Freestyle Collection has already helped raise over $11 million, with more contributions on the way following the release of this year's limited-edition kicks.

This year's participants in the Freestyle Collection program were revealed Friday, and the offerings from the talented youngsters didn't disappoint.

Soon, prospective sneakerheads will be able to try to get their hands on custom releases of the Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 5, Air Jordan XIII Retro, LeBron XIII, Air Max 90 Premium, Air Max 95 Premium and Nike Zoom Stefan Janowski as a way to support OHSU Doernbecher. 

Complete profiles of the six designers can be viewed at Nike's official website, where inspirations for their designs have been explained in full.

According to Nike's official release, this year's Doernbecher Freestyle Collection will be released Nov. 21 at Nike.com as well as select retail locations.
