Patient designer Chloe Swientek, a 10-year-old from Portland, Oregon, doesn’t let cystic fibrosis get in the way of doing the things she loves, and her WMNS Air Force 1 design echoes that sentiment. Her shoe features her basketball jersey number on the toebox, and the Swoosh features the word breathe, the genetic mutations that cause Chloe’s CF appear on the tongue, and a pair of lungs are tucked away on the sockliner. Replicated on the outsole is Chloe’s port, an implanted device that makes it easier for her to receive medications.
