Get the Inspiration Behind the Nike Air Penny “Doernbecher”

Nike offers up a detailed look at the upcoming Nike Air Penny Doernbecher and special insight into the life of its designer, Alejandro Munoz.

Alejandro Munoz was born with kidneys that have never worked well and eventually will fail. He spent his first 12 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Trips to Doernbecher have become a frequent part of his life. At eight you just want to play. Now. Today. It’s pretty simple.

Alejandro’s canvas is the Nike Air Max Penny, inspired by his love of football. Alejandro loves nothing more than hanging out in shorts and tees – and now he has designed one of each. Personal drawings and designs are imprinted all over the reflective base of the Air Max Penny, and his own logo is inspired by his favorite football team: the 49ers. Look closely and you’ll see a self-portrait of Alejandro playing football on the tongue.

Alejandro’s Air Penny and the rest of the 2014 Doernbecher Freestyle Collection launch Sunday, November 23rd at at 10AM EST as well as in-store at select Nike retail locations. A matching cap, t-shirt, and shorts will also be available.
