Part of the Nike 2017 Doernbecher Collection is the Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski designed by Tylan Hibband. Tylan was born with truncus arteriosus, a rare heart defect that is fatal if not corrected. But while his heart may not function perfectly, it’s full of love for his family.
“They’ve always been there for me, even when things get tough,” he said. Tylan included his own personal mantra on the tab of the Nike SB Stefan Janoski: be kind.
That’s the theme of his very own YouTube channel, which he created to help other people feel better. “At the end of every video, it says ‘be kind’ because you never know what someone else is going through,” he said. “That’s why you want to be the best you can be to them.” Because he thinks every fisherman needs a good fishing shoe, Hibbard also designed his shoe with nautical details.
