In celebration of Bransen Fernando’s successful kidney transplant, Nike and OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital have given the Beaverton-native the chance to express his story of battling bilateral kidney cancer through this upcoming version of the Air Max Triax 96. Details showcased throughout the entire shoe arrive as direct reflections of his immense love for sports, family, his kidney donor, and even his favorite dialysis nurse that guided him throughout his inspiring journey. Dressed up striking colors of game royal and team orange hues, the classic runner gets ornamented with a plethora of badges including that of Snoopy to honor his donor, a bumblebee nodding to his siblings whose names all start with “B”, and a donkey as this is his nurse’s favorite animal. Furthermore, the date of his surgery is emblazoned upon the tongues, followed by kidney patterns applied to the sock liners and the word “Boom” present on the outsole inspired by the nickname his mother gave him. Grab an official look here below, and expect these to drop alongside the rest of the Doernbecher Freestyle collection on December 7th.
