Nike 2013 Doernbecher Freestyle Air Max 95 “Mike Armstrong”
Nike recently announced it would be re-releasing a few classics from the Doernbecher Freestyle Series including this patriotic edition of the Air Max 95. This pair owes its colors to Mike Armstrong, who participated in the Doernbecher Freestyle Program back in 2007. The program was created in 2004 as a means to raise money for the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital through the sale of sneakers inspired by its patients. Armstrong, then 15, joined the program while recovering from heart surgery and his brother was serving in Iraq. With its deep blue mesh upper topped off with a red/white stripe pattern and stars on the sides sitting atop a mean black outsole, this looks like a pair fit for Captain America himself. The special Air Max 95 will release shortly after Independence Day on July 6 for $140 through nike.com, and Nike outlets in New York, Georgetown, Chicago, Roosevelt Field, Portland, San Francisco, Dallas, Los Angeles, Lenox and Las Vegas.
