10-year-old crushes 13 heart surgeries, helps Nike design shoe


If this sneaker doesn’t make you feel good on sight, the story behind it will. It’s called the Nike SB Dunk High ‘Doernbecher’ and it was designed by 10-year-old, Finnigan Mooney. Doernbecher is a children’s hospital in Portland, Oregon – ranked among the nations best. It’s the place where Finnigan Mooney crushed 13 heart surgeries and lived to tell the tale; it’s easy to see why he chose an illustration of a heart and the words ‘THUMP THUMP’ as a part of the design. The sneaker is going to be released on November 30th 2012 and will be available for $115 USD.
