For the first time, Nike is including the iconic Nike Air Foamposite One in their special “Doernbecher” Collection. Inspired by Elijah Diggins, a 14-year-old baseball fanatic who has had to deal with Burkitt’s Leukemia, this Foamposite One tells a story. Elijah’s design includes his personal smiley-face logo that turns into his initials when viewed sideways, and a fiery red and black color combination that represents his favorite basketball player, LeBron James. This special sneaker’s sockliner features a chain-link graphic that represents a silver bracelet that his parents gave him before starting chemotherapy, and Japanese characters on the tongue stand for courage, all finished off with Elijah’s John Hancock. Included with the vivid Nike Air Foamposite One “Doernbecher” is a windbreaker and hat to complete the collection.
