This year, Nike decided to add the Nike Kyrie line on to the Doerbecher collection. The Nike Kyrie 2 is paired up with a special kid named Andy Grass. Let’s take a closer look at the Nike Kyrie 2 Doernbecher By Andy Grass.
Andy is an 11-year old who was critically injured when a wave rolled a log over him on the beach. He suffered two collapsed lungs, but miraculously managed to overcome it all. He’s had to endure a long journey to get where he’s at today, but at the end of the day, he’s still a winner!
Andy said that the Nike Kyrie 2 Doernbecher was made as a tribute to those who have helped him get better along the way. Notable features on the shoe include the word “Joy” noted inside the Nike Swoosh placed on the midsole. He chose this word as a tribute to his late Aunt Peggy, who battled breast cancer while he was recovering. He also pays tribute to his mom on the underside of the cross-strap. The hits of Blue represent his favorite baseball and football teams, while the logo on the tongue which shows a human-like lion standing over a log, is meant to represent the fact that nothing could keep him down. The Nike Kyrie 2 Doernbecher By Andy Grass will be releasing on Saturday, December 17th for $120.
