Official Photos of the Nike Air Force 1 “Doernbecher”

Part of Nike’s 16th annual Doernbecher collection includes a special-edition Air Force 1 release designed by 14-year-old Zion Thompson from Eugene, Oregon. She was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, or cancer of the immune system.

For Zion Thompson’s Nike Air Force 1 Low, she decided to go with embossed white leather for a clean, classic look that captures her personal style. The embroidered roses across the Swoosh are a nod to her cancer treatment; as Zion points out, “When you’re starting treatment, you feel pretty small—like a closed rosebud. But your bravery helps you bloom and in the end, you grow beautiful and strong.”

Zion is still in the midst of her treatment journey, which she signifies with the word “survivor” printed on the shoe’s sockliner and outsole. It’s a word of great significance to Zion. “Survivor is the word that feels the most empowering, because it reminds me that I’ll get through this,” she says. “I want to inspire all the other kids out there who are survivors too.”
