Continuing the 15 year anniversary of the Doernbecher Freestyle collection, Nike reintroduces Elijah Diggin’s Air Foamposite One Premium.
In 2013, patient designer Elijah Diggins shared his story of being diagnosed with Burkitt leukemia on his 13th birthday through his red and black Air Foamposite One Premium. The colorway represents his condition, a form of blood cancer, and is also a nod to one of his favorite basketball teams. The story continues with a graphic on the sockliner that is inspired by his most prized possession – a silver bracelet gifted on his 13th birthday.
Elijah has been in remission from Burkitt leukemia for five years and is considered cured. Participating in Freestyle changed his life forever, signaling that his battle with cancer was over and better times were ahead. Now a college sophomore, he plays baseball and is studying science.
