Just a couple days back we gave you a look at the Mr Boober Air Jordan 1 Now we’ve got shots of each shoe for your viewing pleasure.

The Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation, that allows children from the hospital to design their own kicks. These designs are then sold for charity purposes and the proceeds are given back to the hospital. This year???s contribution of $599,469 was raised from sales of the 2007 Freestyle line. Do some good, pick up a pair of these kicks, and come back here next year to see if we can get that dollar amount a little higher for these kids.

The entire collection will be available exclusively to Niketowns and Nike.com on November 14th. Read about the kids behind these shoes and see the pics after the jump.
