Elijah Diggins’ Air Foamposite One from 2013 remains one of the most revered releases ever from Nike’s ongoing Doernbecher Freestyle program. Now, to mark the initiative’s 15-year anniversary, the fiery Foam is back!
Rocking a ‘Challenge Red’ upper inspired by Diggins’ Burkitt leukemia condition, and his favourite basketball team, the sneaker is elevated with a special sockliner emblazoned with a special silver bracelet graphic — a gift given to Elijah the day he was diagnosed with blood cancer. His signature dons the hangtag, while a playful emblem dresses the heel to cap things off.
Six years on, Elijah has successfully beaten the disease and is at college studying science and playing baseball.
