The Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 designed by Sawyer Miller will make its debut in December as part of the Nike Doernbecher Freestyle 2019 Collection.
Sawyer Miller’s treatment required a long stay at Doernbecher, which meant missing time with his friends, family and classmates. So to support him from afar, they came up with a surprise: every Friday, kids and teachers at his elementary school wore a special green “Team Sawyer” tee featuring his favorite animal; a panda bear.
That gesture of solidarity served as the inspiration for Sawyer’s shoe, which features the same “Team Sawyer” logo and a friendly panda munching on a Nike swoosh. A blue pawprint on the bottom sole represents his dog Izzy, and on the tongue tab you’ll find the names of members from his medical team. “Dr. Selden is my hero,” he says.
Look for the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 “Doernbecher” to release on December 7th at select retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $180 USD.
