Day 117/366 – Ike Santos. The CAPITAL Brand. Doernbecher Air Jordan 4’s “Superman”.
Hometown/Current city: Portland, OR
Ike is 1 of 3 who launched The CAPITAL Brand 5 years ago (with TJ Hooker & Josh Walker). They often draw inspiration from their passion for sneakers when designing prints for a variety of t-shirts, jackets and hats. The guys enjoy channeling their creativity and aren’t afraid to push the envelope. Check their gear out on Karmaloop.
Kicks on Ike’s feet: Doernbecher Air Jordan 4 “Superman”
Ike went the extra mile to get these sneakers. He camped outside the Nike Portland store on release day. He loves the Jordan 4 and wanted to support the kids.
Each year Nike works with Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland on the “Doernbecher Freestyle” project, which gives a few select patients of the hospital a chance to design their own Nike shoe; proceeds from the sales benefit the hospital. This particular sneaker was designed by an 11-year old patient named Isaiah – he is referred to as “Superman” by his loved ones. Watch the video below to hear the inspiration behind his design!
