The Doernbecher Freestyle has provided many people with the once-in-a-lifetime chance to design their own pair of shoes. And, in collaboration with the Nike crew, these young, aspiring designers have turned their experiences and tribulations into a concrete, emotive colorway.

Cidni O’Brien, one of this year’s fortunate persons, had chest trouble while playing soccer in 2018. She was subsequently identified with an abnormal aortic origin of the left coronary artery, which meant her heart wasn’t getting enough oxygen, resulting in exceedingly poor cardiac performance. Fortunately, O’Brien recovered in six months after undergoing significant heart surgery, and she is now back on the pitch with her club, the Lebanon Warriors.

The 16-year-Air old’s Force 1 Fontanka is devoted to her comrades as well as the animals she loves. The names of her goats, parrot, donkey, chicken, dog, and fish are prominently emblazoned across the laces, while O’Brien’s horse, Tank, gets a special mention across the left sockliner. Nikki, the young athlete’s mother, is honoured on the right, and O’Brien remarks, “[she] wouldn’t be here without her.” Furthermore, the shoe’s outsole has a design of shrimp pasta, an homage to O’Brien’s favourite cuisine.

Below is an official look at the Air Force 1 Fontanka “Doernbecher.” The retail release is scheduled for later this Spring.
