Following news of the Air Jordan 7 “Doernbecher” retro set to release later this year, the 15 year anniversary of Nike’s partnership with the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital is further celebrated with another bring back from 2013.
The Nike Air Foamposite One “Doernbecher” was designed by Elijah Diggins, a patient at the Doernbecher Hospital who was diagnosed with Burkitt leukemia at the age of 13.
His fiery red and black design both represents his rare form of blood cancer and his favorite basketball team. Diggins, thankfully, has been in remission for five years since designing this shoe in 2013. He is now a college student in his sophomore year, studying science and playing baseball.
All proceeds from Elijah’s Nike Air Foamposite One retro will be donated in full to the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland. The shoe is set to drop tomorrow, February 21, on Nike SNKRS at 10am for $230.
