For the first time ever, Nike will be including the Foamposite model in their upcoming DB collection and let us tell you, this news made the day of all foam heads the moment it was announced. The Red Pyro esque Foamposite sports some of the most interesting details ever featured on a Foamposite, and a Black and Red theme which is a color combination everyone appreciates. Designed by Elijah Diggins, The DB patient poured his heart into it. His design features his very own smiley-face logo, which turns into his initials when viewed sideways. The fiery red and black palette is a tribute to his favorite athlete, Lebron James. On the tongue, Japanese characters symbolize courage, along with Elijah’s signature. A chain-link graphic on the sockliner is taken straight from his most prized possession—a silver bracelet that was a gift from his parents when he began chemotherapy. For Elijah, his design is a very personal thank-you note to the place that he credits with saving his life. “When I was in the hospital, I kept thinking ‘Doernbecher has done so much for me—how am I going to give back?’” Let us know if you’re feeling this Foamposite!
