Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Doernbecher’ Edition

Nike Air Foamposite One 'Doernbecher' Edition

For the first time in 10 years since the Doernbecher joint program with Nike started. The Air Foamposite One has been added as a canvas and Baseball loving Elijah Diggins (14-year-old) diagnosed with Burkitt’s Leukemia had the chance to tell his story using the fabled shoe.

Elijah’s design features his custom smiley-face logo, which turns into his initials when viewed sideways. The fiery red and black palette as a tribute to his favorite athlete, Lebron James. On the tongue, Japanese characters symbolize courage, along with Elijah’s signature and a chain-link graphic on the sockliner taken from a silver bracelet given to him from his parents when he began chemotherapy. For Elijah, his design was a personal thank-you to the hospital 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?’” The shoe Elijah designed also comes with a matching windbreaker and hat.
