The Nike Air Max Zero Doernbecher was designed by Chase Swearingen, age 14. Nicknamed ’The Captain’ because he is a take-charge kind of guy.
Chase designed his Nike Air Max Zero shoe with the same attention to detail that he gives everything else in life. Under the shoelaces, tubing runs all the way to the sockliner to represent the shunt that he has had since birth to treat hydrocephalus. He was diagnosed in utero with the condition, which causes dangerous accumulation of fluid around the brain. Chase has a thing for lighthouses, so he designed one on the heel using the Nike swoosh as the light beam. And on the tongue, the words ‘Unstoppable Chase’ speak to his unbelievable perseverance.
