“Elijah Diggins” “Doernbecher Foamposite One” Video Review (DB First Look)
This is a hands on first look at the Doernbecher Nike Foamposite designed by Elijah Diggins! This is an amazing sneaker! Elijah was diagnosed with “Burkitt’s Leukemia” and was treated at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. On the sneaker you can see a “EB” for his initials, as well as his signature. On the tongue it is the chinese symbol for courage. Also, the color was a tribute to his favorite athlete, Lebron James. I was assuming we would see a lebron doernbecher sneaker this year since he is his favorite athlete, but they went with a foamposite, however the mom said they they started looking at the lebron when they first started the process. Lastly, the inserts in the shoe are a chain design based off his bracelet that was given to him from his parents. I got a chance to talk to his parents and they were very excited to speak to someone like me, in the sneaker culture. It was equally exiting to speak to them and hear the origins of the sneaker! The dad even mentioned he has heard of my youtube channel! Very cool! A great designed sneaker, gives me hope for the return of the foamposite! We have seen so many weak colorways of the foamposite, I am excited to see these hit shelves! Release date is set as November 9th, 2013.
