In celebration of its 15-year anniversary, Nike is bringing back a few choice models from its inspiring Doernbecher Freestyle collection, including the above Air Foamposite One Premium. Designed by Elijah Diggin in 2013, its red and black colorway served as an interpretation of his Burkitt leukemia — a form of blood cancer. The theme’s touching story continues through a graphic on the model’s insole: a nod to a bracelet he received on his 13th birthday. Complementing graphics are also shared on the sneaker’s heel and hangtag.

Elijah has been in remission for five years and is considered cured of his disease. He’s now a sophomore in college currently studies science and loves playing baseball. The Nike Air Foamposite One Premium “Doernbecher” designed by Elijah arrives on February 21 for $230 USD at select Nike retailers and Nike SNKRS with all proceeds going towards the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.

In other Nike news, you can take a closer look at the Black Sheep x Nike SB Dunk High “Black Hornet.”
