Colin Couch’s Air Force 1 Freestyle design from 2008 is the third shoe to be rereleased by Nike in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Doernbecher Freestyle.
With his signature bow tie and larger-than-life personality, Colin Couch is an unforgettable member of the 2008 Doernbecher Freestyle team.
Colin was treated for a congenital heart defect at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and was more than happy to help give back to the hospital that took care of him.
“Doernbecher is a nice place to be – it makes me feel good to know that my shoe is helping other kids.”
Colin, now 23, is studying finance at Brigham Young University — Hawaii. He’s enjoying being back home in Oregon City for the summer and interning at a brick-oven pizzeria.
Colin also is preparing to get on the transplant list and has high hopes for a brand new heart in the near future.
Doernbecher Freestyle 10th anniversary special edition shoes rereleased to date include:
- Mike Armstrong’s limited edition Air Max 95 (July 6)
- Cole Johanson’s 2010 Air Jordan 3 Retros (July 20)
