SNEAKER WITH A VERY INSPIRING STORY BEHIND
This is one of the first sneakers that is using premium carbon fiber. Inspired by Elijah Diggins and his inspirational recovery experience. Elijah plays baseball, and actually is pretty good at it. His team even won the state championship. But Burkitt’s Leukemia made him go through an intense course of chemo, but thankfully he made it.
He tells his story with this sneaker. In design you can find his smiley face, transforming into his initials. Black and red colors scheme is dedicated to Lebron James, his favorite athlete. Japanese writing on the tongue means courage, and there is also Elijah’s signature beside. The chain-link print on the sockliner was copied from the most valuable thing to the boy – silver bracelet that was given to him by his parents before the chemo course. The title of the sneaker “Doernbecher” is the name of the medical institution, where the kid was treated. By this he pays his gratitude to the place that saved his life.
