The Nike Kyrie 2 Doernbecher was designed by Andy Grass, a 11-year old that recovering from two collapsed lungs.
Inspired by those that have helped him get better, Andy designed a special edition Nike Kyrie 2 for the Nike Doernbecher 2016 Collection.
Within the Swoosh, the word ‘Joy’ honors his Aunt Peggy, who was battling breast cancer while Andy was recovering. “She and I would encourage each other a lot,” he explains. “Before she passed away, she reminded me to find joy in every day.” The shades of Blue on his shoe are a shout-out to his beloved baseball and basketball teams, while his personal logo on the tongue boasts a sporty lion standing proudly on top of the log that took him down.
Look for the Nike Kyrie 2 “Doernbecher” to release on December 17th, 2016 at select Nike Basketball locations. The retail price tag is set at $120 USD.
