Doernbecher x Nike Air Foamposite One & Windrunner by Elijah Diggins

September 28th, 2013 by / 83

The Nike Air Foamposite One will be part of this year’s Doernbecher collection thanks to this design by OHSU Doernbecher patient Elijah Diggins. The red and black colorway in place on the sneakers is actually a tribute to LeBron James, who is apparently Diggins’ favorite athlete. Other details include Japanese characters speaking to his courage, a personalized smiley face logo, and a chain link fence graphic on the insole. Keep in mind that this year’s line will also iclude apparel-Elijah’s creation here set to be accompanied by a Nike Windrunner. See the Nike Air Foamposite One Doernbecher in full detail below and stay tuned for full release info here on Sneaker News.

Update: The Nike Air Foamposite One “Doernbecher” will release on November 9, 2013.

Nike Air Foamposite 1 and Windrunner
Elijah likes to play baseball and says he’s a pretty good pitcher. His baseball team actually won the state championship and his dad is quick to point out all the boards that have been knocked out of their garden shed by his son’s killer throw. Behind his modesty is a tenacious kid with untold reserves of strength who was put to the test last year when he was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Leukemia and underwent a tough course of chemo. When faced with the opportunity to tell his story through the Nike Air Foamposite, Elijah poured his heart into it. His design features his very own smiley-face logo, which turns into his initials when viewed sideways. The fiery red and black palette is a tribute to his favorite athlete, Lebron James. On the tongue, Japanese characters symbolize courage, along with Elijah’s signature. A chain-link graphic on the sockliner is taken straight from his most prized possession—a silver bracelet that was a gift from his parents when he began chemotherapy. For Elijah, his design is a very personal thank-you note to the place that he credits with saving his life. “When I was in the hospital, I kept thinking ‘Doernbecher has done so much for me—how am I going to give back?’”

I like the shoes but nike shouldn't limit these. these shoes are for charity it should be a wide release. when fighting cancer for children they should make these a normal foams release because every dollar counts. from what I hear on this comment board only a few people even know what the doernbecher hospital is. these aren't just shoes they are part of a sick childs story.

No authentic foams come in a size 6. If they did my sister would have every pair... Fake foams come in a size 6 tho. But no store sells a authentic size 6 in foams. I've been around foams since da beginning in 1997. So I kno fa a fact
