Maylee Phelps, part of the latest Doernbecher installment designed the upcoming NikeCourt Zoom Vapor Cage 4 ‘Doernbecher’. She was born with spina bifida, a condition where the spine and spinal cord fails to develop properly.
She’s an accomplished junior wheelchair tennis player, currently ranked #11 in the world, and hopes to represent the United States in the 2028 Los Angeles Paralympics. Of course, that plan also includes a glimmer of gold.
Maylee’s Nike Air Zoom Vapor Cage 4 is loaded with personal touches, like hand-drawn stars and a cool marbled outsole featuring all her favorite colors. To help bring awareness to adaptive athletics, she included a spine graphic on the tongue as well as a blue spina bifida ribbon on the heel. Along the midsole, you’ll find a reminder to Keep Pushing no matter what life throws your way. “That phrase helps keep me motivated on the court and in life,” Maylee explained. “I thought it might help other people, too.”
