Part of the Nike Doernbecher Collection. Designed by 11 year old Kian Safholm. Kian’s custom LEBRON XIII is a tribute to King James himself, who inspired Kian to remain courageous and keep up his fight.
Since Lebron is said to have the heart of a lion, Kian chose colors that represent sunrise on the savanna, where lions roam. Lebron’s signature makes an appearance, as does a stylized lion logo. Kian also added details from his own life. He created his own family crest, which can be seen on the sockliner, celebrating the things he values most: faith, family, perseverance and, of course, basketball. You’ll also find the words FOREVER GRATEFUL, which is Kian’s family’s motto. “Whenever we talk about my experience, my dad says he’ll be forever grateful to the Doernbecher team for saving my life,” explains Kian.
The Nike Lebron XIII Doernbecher (Laser Orange/Black-Court Purple) is available now at RUVilla.com and at a Villa location near you!
